I never liked the early SE styling, nor the SLE/SSEi.



GXP/2005 SLE style or bust.

I disagree with your opinion but then again my opinion is obviously biased! To each his own I guess. I like your car but then again I like mine a bit better cause it'* mine....obviously that'* why GM had various trim levels available for our cars.

I use to feel that way but I like the sle/ssei bumpers more now. And yes GXP>*

If I had a sle/ssei 00+ I would make an actual billet style grille covering up the section from the hood to bumper. I've seen it done before, looks awsome..

werd, but I don't really like how it was executed on the 2k+ SLE/SSEi







but forget that, it'* all about rectangular fogs mounted seperately. rock it old school



(i have no foglights, they broke and were removed)

I saw a 2001 at my dealership recently, and I noticed the bulging circular cutouts in the bumper actually stick out a bit, so if you pull up in a parking space to a wall and tap it, you'll tap it right on those bulges for the foglights. And sure enough, the bumper of the car was all scraped up around those openings. I've always disliked the look, even on the 92-99 models. I think they look like tusks or something. Just my opinion. I prefer the wide-set foglights on any of the Bonneville models.

For the bonnie, i really like the SSE/SSEi/SLE style cladding, but then again i have had an SSE and now have an SSEi, it sets the car apart from the rest, i do really like the SE bonnies also, especially the 00+ cause they are so sleek and stylish, at least to me, but as for preference, i prefer the upper mounted fogs, although, i did like the lower ones on my GP cause they were wider than the fogs and it was like i had better "night vision" out of my fogs and headlights combined, but as it has been said, to each his/her own, our cars are special to all of us, and we all share a common love, the Bonneville, whether it be SE, SLE, SSE, or SSEi.
