I was looking at a black GXP but here in Yuma AZ its soooo hard to keep clean the sand totally stands out on black. I am very happy with the Greystone with limo tint all around =)

50/50 here also, I like all years but out of the years I liked the 92-95 SSE better the 96-99 the SE looked way better with just those minor feature chages 00-01 SE I don't care for the front bumper and cladding but the 02'* and up are alright.

IMO all the newer buicks kick A$$ I fell in love with the redesigned PA in 97 and then the Le Sabre in 00, to me buicks are killing all ponti'* cept for the bonnie

92-95 SSE-SSEi body styling is my favorite. Love the rear end.
96-99..probably my least favorite, however, I do love it, go figure
00+ SLE SSEi, Niiiiice, Really like the look!

As far as Bonnies go, the GXP is the best looking one ever IMO.

In fact, all of the GXP'* in Pontiac'* lineup look great.

I am partial to my 87 Buick, it just has a sinister look and stance to it that just makes me think one thing...muscle. My 00 SSEi is nice however it just doesn't come close to my GN.
