Default 2005 SLE Production

Just curious if anyone has an estimated number for 2005 SLE Bonneville production. From what I see on the site GM reported 10,000 plus of all models combined but I have not seen a breakdown. I have a gun-metal grey 2005 SLE and have never seen another just like it. A silver one passed by me a few days ago and that was the first 2005 SLE I have seen of any color in the last few months. My guess would be about 3000 units?

I have no idea I have a 2005 SLE as well, and I have seen one just like it around. There is a silver 2005 SLE in my area and there used to another Cranberry red one running around but it was sold to someone in a town my sister lives in. I have seen an Ice Blue one once too. Not many I am guessing it is less than 25% of them were SLE'*. They are rare cars.

Lack of advertising, 6th year of the same basic body style, etc...

I think Pontiac'* asking price got way out of hand for Bonnevilles. Although I paid $29k for my '05 new, it was deeply discounted because the model year had run out. The sticker was $39.

GM4LIFE!!!!! Welcome Home to the original Cranberry Club Member. Total manufacturing figures had to be culled from an GM investors report. It was never given out directly to the press and GM remains tight lipped about the model breakdowns, so we may never know just how rare the SLE and GXP models are.

Hey glad to see you still alive Venom. Lets just say SLE and GXP models will be and are rare. Finding an SE is a dime a dozen.

I have actually seen more 04-05 GXP'* on the road than I have SLE'*. Sure would love to stumble on the model breakdowns.
