Default After driving home my new 2000 SSEi...

...I gotta say, the one I test drove a few months ago, mentioned in this thread -

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...est+drove+2001

- must've had something wrong with it. That 2001 was doggy compared to the 2000 I now own.

I'm going to give 'er a good claybar and waxing this weekend, along with some chrome polish, then I'll snap some pics!!

Wow, I love this car! And so does my wife.

Let me be the first to congratulate you.
Yeah, I bet you like it. The SSEi is the only 2k-newer model that I'd own -the L36'* are just a little too underpowered for such a large car.

So, how do you liek the power of the Series II L67 over the Series I L67?

Best of luck with her.

GIT-R-DONE!!!!!

actually, I thought that about the L36 too.. until I drove my bro'* 2000 SLE. That car moves quite nicely. I thas no trouble at all getting to speed. I was quite surprised at its performance in all honesty. I could live with it.
BTW, congratulations on your new car!

The only two gauges that don't switch to american with the e/m button is the boost gauge (kPa instead of lbs) and the temp gauge (celsius instead of fahrenheit). The speedo reads MPH.

220 MPH...

Congrats on the new car. Do the SSEI'* not have the E/M (English/Metric) button?
