I've always thought that Bonnes w/o SSE/i cladding look too "tall" or "skinny." Just like they are not "filled out" and low enough for a car that is that long.

As far as the fog lights, I do prefer the GXP front end in the newest models, but I still love the close-mounted fogs on SSE/i'* (and later SLEs).

I think if they could combine your SE modling with the SSEi fogs, that would be pretty nice. I like the SE'* at night, and the others in the day time. I like seeing the lights farther apart, give the appearance of more low riding and wider.

the 00+ models:

The extra body cladding looks great on the SLE/SSEi, it definatley gives the car a wider and lower look.

So, what im trying to say is that i like them both. I dont rerally prefer one over the other i just wish i had both!

I guess i'm biased also i love the look of the bonneville, but what grabs mine and most ppl'* attention is the front end of the SSEi/SLE. I personally think it looks a little more aggresive then the SE. Just my opinion....

97-99 will always be my favorite body style, not that I would turn down owning a 2000+ model.
As far as the fog ligts go, I prefer them farther apart. But that'* just me. I'm glad there are so many differrent styles, other wise this would be one boring Club.

92-99 I like the SSEi look the best. Way before I bought actually.

However one day I was with Toasty and Gumball, we looked side to side 00+ and I think the SE has a good look, but the SSEi is also good. There'* not as much of a clear one over the other.
