Default Diff in Factory exhaust tips

Ok, so ive seen like a few diff exhaust tip setups in my drivings around. I have the big trapezoidal(squarish)ones, I have also seen another SSEi with oval ones, so Im just wondering if anyone know what was stock for SE'* SSE'* and SSEi'*, I love mine and dont wanna change em, gonna have em chopped off and put on the new exhaust. THis will just help with my identifying differant bonne'*.

Cool, thanks. I wasnt sure if there was an option for the tips or not. I like mine cause they seem cast really well. Thicker. I'll take everything else as aftermarket.

headrests, huh? Does this require a new thread? Or maybe a thread explaining the diff options for each trim? the things you listed with pics?

00-01 got the cowbell exhaust tips, older style badges, and headrests with the cutout in the middle. only the 00'* got the "PONTIAC" on the rear bumper. the 00-01 both had the swoopies, but the 00 had carbon fiber centercaps, while 01'* have a solid chrome centercap

02-03 got the oval exhaust tips, new style slanted badges, solid headrests, and the slanted 5 spoke chromies

there are probably a few more differences, but thats the basic ones I use to tell.

Don't think my '00 came with swoopies? It has a different style on it and I believe they are stock! I wish they had swoopies!

Swoopies were the chrome style rim from 00-01

this shows the available wheels for 00

The chrome swoops were a $900. option.

Another difference is the location of the heated seat controls and center cup holder.
