Besides the minor appearance differences of course.

Shawn
there are none, the changes happened in 02
NOT true! '00'* did not say Bonneville anywhere on the outside of the car besides the drivers headlight, the '01s and newer said it on the rear bumper. Some people don't pay attention close enough obviously. And you can always tell an early '00 SSEi because they don't have the Onstar antenna. The '00'* also got the flat centercaps on the 6 spoke wheels whereas the '01'* got the one with the middle that sticks out. I'm suprised Bill didn't know this....actually I'm amazed!

Yes, i did buy it used. So that must explain it! I know it does say bonneville on the bumper so it must have had a diff bumper put on it!

it could also be a late production 2000, made in july/august 2000 when they were phasing over to the lettered bumper

Only early 2000'* don't have the onstar antenna. Late '00s do because it was released as an option mid-year, which I mentioned in a reply above. We have the antenna on ours. The only EXTERNAL difference between '00 & '01 is the bumper and the keyhole in the pass. door (never saw this before).

Its possible I guess. Our SSEi was a very late production one so it seems like it would've probably gotten one too, but maybe not... We bought ours in the end of August of '00 and the dealer had just gotten it in, I should look up the production date to see what it is.

Mine was made Jan.6, 2000.
No antennae. Pontiac only in rear bumper. I added the SLE chromed Bonneville emblem myself.

....and everyone knows that 2000'* are faster than 2001'* :P

But anyways, you guys are good at pointing out the differences, no doubt about it.
