Where could I land a good set of portholes for my Lacrosse?

Off a 2005 Park Avenue Ultra :lol::lol:

My dealer told me there is the Buick/GMC/Saturn dealership in Hartford, Conn. puts portholes on all of their Lacrosses. Try calling them. Maybe they get them from the Lucerne factory.

The classic Buick guys fit their late model Buicks with the portholes offered by the Sloan Museum in Flint, Michigan, which is home to the Buick Gallery and Research Center.  I understand that the Sloan's portholes are the best quality versions currently available.

A dude on ebay (item No. 8049132674) has portholes that he claims are superior to the Chinese made ones. Are these the same as the museum.

My dealer buddy told me he's been told all LaCrosses will have portholes starting for the '07 model year. His dealership doesn't put them on but the one in Connecticut does.

Real, functioning portholes like the Ultra or just decorative?

I didn't realize the Ultra's portholes were functioning... I thought they were purely decorative!

I saw an ebay auction a while back for a 1999 Riv that had PA portholes and 2004 or so Chrome rims (PA/Lacrosse style) on it.. looked damn good in the pictures. Not quite sure how it would look on a white Riv. Edited by Decka
