Nice. I love the look of the 300M, but the Bonne would be my first choice.

The SSEi is faster...and Chrysler trannies

the knock the handling of the SLE but the SSEi handling probably kills the 300M.

What kind of suspension does the 300M have?!
I'm sick of listening to people carry on about the "smart switch" that GM uses.
What'* the matter? Can their simian type cranial capacities only handle so much before the migraine sets in? It'* a heck of a lot easier than having buttons for things all over the dash!

Well, it doesn't. The 300M always scores .02g or so higher than the SSEi on the skidpad in any comparison test. Unfortunately the 300M just handles better. If you ditch the junk Goodyear Eagle RS-A'* and get some real tires on it, it will handle as good or better than the 300M though.

Oh don't get me started my Intrepid went through 2 trannies. Nice riding cars and fast ran mine up to 125mph once but very poorly designed in the drive train. They had even upgraded my tranny'* electronics to the 300M'* but alas she still killed it the 3.5 and that tranny just shouldn't be together.
