One more thing, Remember, just as there are SSE'* (no 'i') and SE'* with superchargers, there are always exceptions to the rule. That is why I encourage all who find a difference from what is eventually posted to contact ssesc93 via PM.

i think that all the trims do have meanings like for example:
SE-Sport Edition
SSE-Super Sport Edition
SSEi-Super Sport Edition Inducted
LE-Luxury Edition
SLE-Sport Luxury Edition

i know that some of them might not be offical like the inducted thing but they all make sense hehe

I am finished. All I have to do is now label the stuff on the differences in trims. I hope everyone understand this once again. I tried my best to get what I thought might help. Some pics that I thought would have been captured weren't available. If anyone has any pics, please feel free to PM me and I will put it up on the rest of the list. Thanx

Negative. I have this info direct from Pontiac. NONE of the models 'mean' anything. Pontiac isn't in the habit of making the badge names acronyms like Chevrolet does.

The only one that means anything is SLE, which is Sport Luxury Edition, but that really wasn't officially a 'model' until recently. It was an Options Package available on the SE originally.
