Default GXP with wheels other than the 18" GXP wheels?

I saw a GXP tonight at Chilis but it had the same twisted 5 spoke 17" wheels that my SSEi has. Was this an option or did someone swap these themselves? It was definitely a GXP. It had the GXP bumpers, badges, antenna, tail lights and exhaust tip so it definitely wasn't just an SSEi with GXP tail lights or anything like that.

My bet is you saw a 2004-2005 SLE. There is a dark Crimson Tintcoat 04/05 SLE in Alexandria and it looks so 'clean' with the GXP bumpers and trim.

Yup, the '05 SLE looks identical to the GXP. Same tails, body styiling, bumpers, etc.. just different rims and badges

hmmm, how did i not know that? Thanks for the info though, i didn't get the best look at the badges because it was freezing out but i knew they weren't SSEi badges. Those are pretty unique then. They still have an L36?

Please keep non-mechanical issues out of the mechanical sections. Moved to General Chat.

Yea, they still get the L36, and I believe some different interior bits also.
