I was speaking of the Performance and Normal SHift buttons that the supercharged models have.

Ah yes, I understand now. Those are the only bottons I have too. Although, I wouldn't want traction control or the electronic suspention.

I remember in March of this year I was looking for another Bonny and I saw one just like your. Same year but it was white. Also it had all 5 buttons, an air pump in the trunk with the accesory kit and a sunroof. 100K miles but wanted 5500 for it. I didn't want a car note and I only had $3000 with me. I really wanted that car because of its rarity and because any average person would think its just another SE with some power. I know you make a lot of people feel really crappy when they look under your hood or when they try to test your car. LOL! I got the same reaction from my club when they just thought I got another SSE until they looked at the dash and under the hood. I had one member actually thought that my car was made by someone who just had an accident and glued supercharged on my door so ppl would think its a higher level car. This is the first time they ever seen a car like mine.

I think they only made the supercharged SSE for a couple of years, 92 & 93.

I believe Fuddy is correct.

93, did they put the "Supercharged" badges on your doors instead of the "SSE" badges? That is what it looks like in your sig. Pontiac did some really strange things with the Bonneville. Just wait until you see the info Willwren is putting up in tech info re: the production numbers! I tried to get a further breakdown of Supercharged SE'*, SSE'*, and SLE'*, but it wasn't available according to Karen over at Pontiac Customer Service.

That'* what they did.

They did some really strange things in early 92. I've seen them with the SE logo behind the rear window, and with other logos on the headlamps - I forget what they say.

I won't say anything about those colored triangular wheels they had in 92 and 93.

I think some of the headlights said "Pontiac" in a black font. I have seen some 1992 Bonnevilles with the "SE" on the sails, I think it looked pretty good. As for the colored Triangular wheels that the SSE and SSEi'* had, I think they looked good too! But I tend to be a purist! I have seen a lot of great looking after market wheels out there, but I will never buy them (unless I have a hubcap-equipped car).

I like those wheels too...but maybe that'* because they're on both of mine. Too bad the paint on the white set hasn't held up very well and they show the brake dust really well.

I've always thought it was odd that neither of mine says "Bonneville" anywhere on the outside, and instead of the SSE */c having the "SSE" markings with the "Supercharged" marking on the sides of the car, my '92 just has the "Supercharged" marking on the sides.

I don't ever remember seeing any others with markings on the headlights, etc.
