Default Any non GXP'* with GXP body?

A couple weeks ago on the way to work a couple times I saw what looked like a Bonneville GXP. It has the same front, and the more subdued side cladding. But it said SLE on the side. Just today on the way home from church I saw another one. I don't think it was the same car. I'm guessing they just took the GXP emblems off to disguise it?

And they also got 17" rims. I've only seen them with the chrome 5-spokes, but am not sure if they came with any other.
