Well, I'm going to go look at the 95 SE today.... I found a 96 SSEi too. It'* got 133k on it and I can get it for between $3000 and $3500. It'* got a factory sun roof.... is this a typical spot for problems? Do they tend to leak? What kind a job is it to reseal it? How expensive?

At 133k is there anything to worry about with the supercharger?

Sunroof will be fine as long as the drain tubes are not clogged.....other than that they really don't leak. Just check the operation of all the gizmos and make sure they all work.

BTW that SSEi price sounds about right. I bought a '96 SE with the SLE package plus sunroof, power passenger seat and 116k for $3500 this time last year. Remember its winter time, no one is buying cars...use that to your advantage with the scum bag dealers

I drove the SSEi and it'* a nice car.... I think I'm going to buy the 95 SE. They're going to start emmisson testing this year in NH... anything 96 and newer will be tested. If I buy the 95, it'* less money, less miles on it, in better condition, and I don't have to deal with the emmissions testing.


That'* the first SSEi I've driven.... it rocks! The car was LOADED! Maybe the next one!

I think I'm going to. I really want the SSEi.... but the SE makes more sense.... besides, less options, less to go wrong.

The 95 I'm looking at is so clean you could all but eat off the underside.... The car is NICE!

I will.... It'* a pretty car..... It'* gold with a tan interior. I need to replace the driver'* side outer tail light, the driver'* side front marker lens, and one fog light lens. I have the fog light lens, but I'm looking for the tail light and marker lens. jwikoff99 has tail lights for sale, but I'd love to find a set of SSE tails.

Well, I'm picking up my 95 SE today.... I'm going to try to find a set of steel rims for snow tires. Did the 92-99 Bonnevilles that came with steel wheels all have 15" rims? What'* the size of the bolt pattern?
