Default Buying a 2000+ SSEi !!

I've decided that once I get back from the middle east this fall, I'll sell the tired old Rumbler (my 1990 SSE) and upgrade to a 2000+ SSEi. My apologies if this is covered in another post; I gave the search function a couple of tries, I just really didn't know what to search for. Anyway...

When shopping for the 2000+ Bonnevilles, are there any nice factory options to keep an eye out for, especially on the SSEis? I'm talking things along the lines of boost guages, heads up display, heated seats, or generally any of the cool creature comforts that don't come standard? I know the SSEi is pretty much as loaded as you can get, and I really apologize for my ignorance on this subject as this will be my first venture into the world of the current Bonnevilles...its just that I see alot of fluctuation in the prices around here for cars with the same trim level and very similar mileage. I just want to know if I'm looking at a good deal, or if the seller is just dumping a car with the simple standard stuff, and none of the more sought-after options. Vice-versa, I don't want to get taken for a ride and pay $2000 more than I need to becasue the seller rattles off 15 different "options", only to find out they come standard . Any tips on what to look for would be nice, if you don't mind sharing. Knowledge is power . Thanks all.

ahhh....stretches out....

SSEi options include:
heated seats
moonroof
swoopies or the chrome 5 spokes, or on the 2000 the "crosslace"

all these are standard on the SSEi:
the SSEi has 8 way seats, memory seats, compass, ELC,HUD, dual climate control, BOSE system, blue tinted/heated mirrors, ONStar, tracton control, stabilitrak, DIC, and im sure there is a few more, but at this hour this is me best effort

Haha thanks SLE, thats exactly what I was looking for. Yeah, I'm working thirds tonight (11pm-7am) so I'll be on here until about 7 eastern time browsing...then its time to crash

You know, dispatching is great on a slow night....gotta love getting paid to sit on your @ss playing on the net
