A couple things you might want to look into:
2003-2005 Park Avenue Ultra Grille (here'* a pic of my parents Park Ultra with the newer grille):
Also a bottle of 3M Plastic Cleaner/Polish for the headlights. My dad puts it on almost everyother week to prevent the yellowing/aging. They had started to yellow before he got the car but with regular cleaning/polish the yellow started to dissapear, up to a certain extent, and keeps them looking presentable.
Otherwise, the wash and cleaning really seems to have brought that car too.
I have to agree on the ride quality. Although it has a fairly identical suspension to the Y2K+ SSEi'*, it still has that Buick feel like you are riding on a cloud.
Another thing my parents have had problems on both my old 97 Park Avenue and the current 2002 PA Ultra (this still has under 90k miles) are the front wheel bearings/hub. They keep going bad and are eating up $250 apiece Vogue tires like there is no tomorrow.

Yes, the 1997+ Park Avenue is just like the 2000+ Bonneville in terms of motor/trans mounts.
