Default SLE Package?

I noticed nate86'* signature says he has a 96 SE with SLE package. How can you tell if you have a SLE Package? I have wondered for sometime now if I do. My SE is pretty loaded. It has Leather, Sunroof, Power Mirrors, CD w/ Steering wheel controls, 16" 5 Spoke Wheels, 6 way drivers seat, just to name a few. It is one of the more loaded SE'* where I live most of them have the 15" wheels and Cloth bench seats.

The SLE is SSE cladding and with a Series II NA...the interior is basically SE trim level. However you can order an SLE with SSE trim and options and opt for the NA engine.

You can really see that in the newer Bonnes the SLE and the SSEi (2000+) are VERY similar

from what I've seen, the SLE package was introduced part way through the '93 model year. From then until the 99 model year, you can tell if you have the SLE package by the RPO code H4U.

From 2000 onwards, I'm not sure if they have the H4U RPO, but you can tell by the VIN (position 5 is different than SE or SSEi)

Visually, the exterior of the SLE from '93 to '98 looks like the SE, but for the 99 model year (not sure if at beginning or part way through), the SSE model was dropped, and the SLE became the replacement for it, so the SLE exterior from '99 onwards should look similar to the SSEi.

I'm surprised there'* a '99 with SLE badging on an SE, can't explain that, does it have the H4U RPO?

Having grown up in Texas, I prefer the cloth seats. Leather gets hot. And COLD as I found out in my LeSabre last winter!

Sure, any 93-99 SE with the H4U package has the SLE package.
