Default Rarity - Supercharged SLE '96

Hi all,

Just signed up and discovered that my nose cone coupler is going. Noise at idle. Anyway.get forum

I'm curious if anyone else has an SLE with the Supercharged engine. I contacted Pontiac after the '96 model ended and asked for a prodcution total.

They stated that about 69,000 bonnevilles were produced with ~61,000 being SE models. That is future broken-down to ~8,000 SLEs and only 367 had the supercharged engine.

Dont' know how many SSEi'* were made. But interesting non-the less

ummm, I think after 94 Pontiac decided to confuse us more...After 94 any SSE without a supercharger was designated SLE.

I don't think there are any post 94 model SSE that are normal aspirated, its either SLE (NA with SSE trim and features) or SSEi (SC'd)

I think...who knows, its so loopy anyway

ok, another ignorant question...why is an SSE SC'd not an SSEi? Aren't they the same thing?

An SSEi gets traction control and adjustable suspension, I think. The only two things my SC SSE doesn't have, oh and the heated windshield, but does ANYONE have that, I have yet to ever see a Bonny equipped with it.
