Marty'* doesn't have the ECC either.

And 2000 Wasn't the first year of the factory badging on the SLE.

the Badging started in 98 when the SLE started to look like the SSE/SSEi

and I ment to say is that if you have the ECC in a SE body you have an SLE,

Yes, 98+ SLE models were designated as such from the factory. Just look at smellbird'* car. I have an SE with the SLE package, and I plan on finding some 98-99 SLE cladding in the near future. Make it look the way it should

FYI, pre-98 cars with the SLE package had slightly beefier side-cladding than a standard SE. This is true at least up thru 95. Side body claddings available from 92-95:

SE
SE w/deluxe level trim (SLE package)
SSE/SSEi

The SE could be had with the deluxe level trim, this was an option.... Some came from the factory with it, others didn't...

On the 92-95 SLE the trim was standard...

Personally I like the SSE trim the best...


Pat, is that what you were going to do? Install the 92-95 SSE trim? That would be pretty Sick!!! ( Yes guys I mean this in the best possible way )

When you do this would you keep the Ghetto silvers or will you use the Aero Blade Monotone wheels to match?
