2000SLE is on a distinguished road
Default Finally fixed the SSEi - Some differences from the newer SLE

The alternator, O2 sensor, battery and one battery terminal needed to be replaced in my '93 SSEi. I just finished the job and its running strong again

So, i've been driving my '00 SLE the last three months and I think the '93 SSEi feels faster then the newer SLE. The SLE is smoother and kinda like a Lexus ride as opposed to the sporty road feel and low-end boost :P of the older SSEi.

I definetly think the '93 SSEi is funner to drive as opposed to the '00 SLE. I wonder if I ran both cars @ Englishtown, which would be quicker

The SSEi would win. Lighter, better weight distribution, same horsepower, more torque.

I drove Bill'* 95 SSEi up at the NEBF in October (once I found BonniFest) and my rig seems like a dog as compared to that supercharger. I was impressed with the SSEi, I'll definitely admit to that.

The 2000 SLE is not supercharged. Only the SSEi came supercharged in 2000.
It'* not doubt the 93 would be more funner.
