you seem to be the opposite from everyone else that has ridden in both the 00-02 and 03+

LOL, great....

I have only driven two Bonnevilles, one was an 02 SLE and one was an 03 SSEi, to be honest I don't remember how the seat felt in either...

It just looks like the 02 would be more comfortable from the interior pics I have seen...

So the consensus is that the 03 seats are better?

My 03 seats are way more comfortable than my 00 seats, or my dad'* 02 SLE seats. If you like the added features, get the SSEi. You'll love it.

Ohh... 1993 SLE...where are you, your favorite question was asked..

This is like the movie "My Cousin Vinny" when the prosecuter tries to badger Marisa. Sit back...smile and watch as Pat tells you about every little fuzzball difference that no one else would ever notice..

So the difference between a 2002 and 2003 SSEi are that the HUD and garage door opener were made optional in 2003, along with the changed seats...
