I have heard the best out of the 98/99 SSEi.

Did you want to stay domestic? with GM? Pontiac?

Buick Regal GS or GTP if you wanna go fast, or the new style Bonneville (2000+)

That V6 Grand Am GT is pretty nice too

Supercharged 92/93 97-99, 00+ are still pricey, and seem to have some problems...
N/A 93, 97-99. Avoiding 97-99 if intake isn't replaced, or you don't want to do it yourself.

Avoid the OBD 1.5 computer IMO. And the L36 because of the upper intake. 92 for N/A doesn't have an EGR and that doesn't help.

Why are you getting rid of yours? Just feel like something newer? If I was in your position I'd definitely upgrade to an SSEi

thanks for the info..i know what you mean by the 1.5

I want a newer bonnie but not so new that I would have to make payments I one a good year that'* not prone to a lot of problems especially the intake problem
