My 95 has a Kenwood KMM BT308 BT no CD, blutooth, boom box in trunk, and a remote control. I did not put it in, was there when I bought car.

It might be wishful thinking but I'm going to see if my 12 volt guys can tap into something inside the radio and make a auxiliary port. Otherwise, I guess I will just have to put in a head unit but I really don't see anything I'm thrilled with without hacking up the dash.

First thing I will need is a new antenna and a front door speaker and a radio in due time lol. This car rides so nice, even the crappy streets in NYC feel smooth lol.

Yes, the Riviera does have a great ride.  And NYC streets are actually better than Nassau County.  Never used to be that way, but it is now.  Old Country Road is a disaster.

Having said that, I just replaced the tires on my 98.  I went with Cooper CS-5 Grand Touring on the recommendation of my GS club director.  These tires, hands down, are the best riding tires I have ever had on this car.  Fell in love with my Riv all over again.  Got them from Tire Discount Direct.  They were 71.00 each, free shipping, and Cooper had a 70.00 rebate with the purchase of 4 tires.  Home run all around.  The ride is incredible, and I have 40 psi in them (44 psi maximum), you'd never know it.

I live in Finger Lakes region of NY State. The weather did in +any+ road that had cracks in it, even teeny fissures, that let water (especially salt water in to the road base. The temperature swings we have had this winter were, well, epic. Last time I remember it this bad was I think 2004. Changes in temp of 30 degrees course of a day is not uncommon this winter; last couple weeks we went from -14F to +60 and just about back in the course of several days, up and down. At this rate, by the time we reach spring many roads will be beyond crappy. In the 5 boroughs you're much closer to the ocean and the temperature swings just are not as wide. Easy to imagine why Nassau County roads would be worse.

Best

I am in Nassau and Suffolk every weekend, I totally get it. Baci on old country road in Westbury it's one of my favorite places. Do you go to bellmore on Friday nights or captree on Sundays when the weather is nice?

Albert, there is probably a much greater volume of cars downstate as well terrorizing the roads LOL.

My part time job is in Westbury, 1025 Old Country Road. Love Baci, great food.

I'm a regular at Bellmore on Fridays with my 70 GS. I can't be bothered with Captree, not enough room, and I really don't want to get up at 5AM on Sunday. Tuesday at Oyster Bay, and Wednesday in Hicksville off 106.

No argument there.

Just the same winter's not over and the city and village roads around here, generally, took a horrid beating.
