Thanks, looks like that color would look good with quicksilver too... how much did mpg go down do you think?
I have rails on Snugtop on truck, so color would look good with silver birch metallic too.
Did you use shortest Thule hardware?
Yep. Used the Thule foot pack and wing bars to keep it low to the roof.

The hit wasn't as bad as I expected. On a fairly calm day I averaged 29 MPG with the cruise set at 75 on a 300 mile trip. Noise wasn't bad either.

Do you get enough air when other half makes you ride up there?
Probably would be good place for smokers.
Sorry R man could not resist...guessing you spent pretty good chunk of change for that nice option?!

Thule Motion XT XXL (22 cubic feet).

It’s a nice ride up there! Should have kept a cooler up there for my 6 pack, though.

In less than a week of ownership, my wife and I have been asked multiple times if her TourX was a BMW, Merc or Jag. Folks are really surprised when we tell them it's a Buick. The funniest encounter was when someone asked me if Dodge had come out with a new Magnum! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I don't know fellas.... That's a tough pill to swallow for roughly 1 inch damage..
...there are some local touch up outfits here that I know work with consumers and car dealers. They have vans and come to you to do touch up work with small equipment (like air brushing). Maybe worth a call or two just to get another opinion from somebody who specializes in this kind of localized damage.

That's why I did this.

Congrats color looks nice.
I do not get out much to older towns but, are those grave stones in picture in middle of a residential street?
It's the Forrest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo NY. I was there seeing the Frank Lloyd Wright Blue Sky Mausoleum. I turned around and there she was and I snapped the picture.
I love the color too, thanks!

Perhaps not the best shot, but for sure on one the better roads traveled. . .

The Best Shot Thread in the LaCrosse section isn't going so well, they old cats there are asking if there are any FotoMats left to get their film developed.

Thanks again Regal Gang for allowing a LaCrosse to participate.
I am still waiting for Costco to get my Kodachrome pictures back... not only cant find my package but trying to find the kiosk where to look for them.
PS I am not an old cat, I am an old dog.....person.

Where is that road, looks nice.
At least you hopefully are not trying to change your Buick LaCrosse into a Opel or Holden or God forbid a Chevy...
PS Probably possible to rebadge as Caddy, which might help resale value compared to other GM brands or former brands.

Why these cars aren't flying off the lot is beyond my comprehension… Sharp ride, Red Regal GS!
Because 1.) There's far fewer Buick lots in general and 2.) Most never go searching for a Buick.

In fact my local Buick/GM where I got my Sportback only have my car brand new and 1 CPO and that's it. For being a Buick/GM lot they literally had only like 10 Buick cars 🤷‍♂️

Yeah it's sad how many dealers don't seem to stock many of the sedans or wagon. My local dealer has never ordered a GS and was absolutely no help with trying to buy one. I ended up having to buy one from a dealer in another state.
