Default My next car

I'm looking into getting an 00+ SLE or SSEi. Honestly anything but an SE is fine.
I'd prefer the SSEi but I hear they're hard to find.

It'* going to be black, white, or silver, and I was wondering how cleared tails and corners would look on all of those? I hear they're a lot of work, but it'll be worth it.

I know they look amazing on the white one, but has anyone seen them on any of the others? I see no reason that they would look bad, but i'm just wondering.

I actually looked at the kits to black out the lights for the black Bonneville, but they're illegal in some parts of PA >:(

But yeah, anyone who has suggestions on anything, tell me. I'm looking at trying to buy this car by the end of this year, so I'm trying to look at all my options and get one that'll look cool :]

I wouldnt say "hard to find", just takes some searching. Pat (93SLE) found a 2003 SSEi that is a creampuff. It took him a little while to find just what he wanted, but he found it and if I could afford two, I'd want his.

I just saw a 00+ SLE in the pearlish white color for sale yesterday. I didn't notice if there was a price or not. It was probably an 05, looked a lot like a GXP. It was HOT.
Erie is only about 2 hrs away

Found it - http://www.lakeviewresale.com/details.asp?CarID=9493943&d=10091011&*=LR1179

WoW! An 05 SLE with Pontiac chromes. WOnder how that happened? Would be cool if you could wander upon an SLE with the GXP body trims and L67.
