Default Help needed here to decide on what!

As we all knowpeople are getting there taxes back (me to be exact!) and its time for a new car. I havent had my 97 for a while but that will be likemytrade-in with money down on it but dont worry i still have the oldschool 93 in good shape( as far as the outside) in the backyard.

I needed help deciding which car to go with and its been hard so i need your help. I wanted to go with getting the 01 Bonnie VS 98 Park Avenue Ultra. The Park has 135000 when the Bonnie has 177000 highway miles. The Bonnie looks better but the Park is faster. I dont know what do you think? Here are some pics of it below and alsoif i went with the Bonniei was wondering do the Park and Bonnie have the same wheel lug pattern for my rims to fit.

PA - Lower mIles, L67 power. It'll be MUCH nicer in and out then that 01 SE. No contest really.
The lug patterns are the same.

Seein how this is an Bonneville club i thought you guys would go for the bonnie lol! But i dont want an Mark5/6/7/or 8 because thats fords engine plus i already have an 94 Cougar with a 4.6l in it the same power as the Mark.

Now back on the subject. The interior in the Bonnie Is much better than the one in the Park plus then that is an 98 VS an 01 even though it has high mileage i figure what ever could have went wrong with it has already did lol! Plus i heard that those 3.8 engines that Gmhas can go way over 200,000 mile in good running condition while i've also heard that the superchargers can go out and be very exspensive.

i based my answer soley on the engine...superchargers done just go out...

either the bearings or coupler are the usualy problems...not expensive at all...most superchargers outlast the car..

i would be more worried about the intake doing on the bonneville....

I was think the same thing to but if i get that why dont i just replace the gaskets before it needs 2 be done. MAn i really dont know they are both nice carz but i think im goin to go with is the old trusty Bonnie. This would be the 4 one now.

Is there like any problems that these newer body styles have that i should know about
?
