I'm not going to mention how long my parents waited for a Citation back in the day...and luckily canceled before it was delivered.

Mine got the Buick edition - I think they wished it had been cancelled

Erm, uh, not really.

Yet it still has no UGDO, from what I read.

My mom had the Olds version... She got it after she totaled her previous car, and it was priced right at the time. It was a couple months before I turned 16, so it was the car I was allowed to borrow on weekends.

It actually wasn't that bad of a car, and we really didn't have any issues with it. But it was boring...

She's chosen better since then and was the last slushbox she's had. Cars after it were a Saab 900 convertible (pre GM), a BMW Z3 1.9, an E46 325CiC, an E90 325i, a diesel Jetta (that she hated and dumped after 2 months), and now an E92 328i...

Can you swap in an E90 mirror with the UGDO in it?

Unlimited grip due often?

Unflattering grandiose dogma opine?

Universal gimp derrière orthodoxie?

What the heck does UGDO mean?
