That'* definitely an SE.

It has the SE markings on the door. No SLE badge.
Wrong grill if it was an SLE.
No leather.
No steering wheel controls.
No ECC.
No moonroof.
HUBCAPS. lol

That'* an SE, no doubt about it.

I see NOTHING SLE about that car. In 99, the SLE had the SSEi body cladding and bumpers. It does have bucket seats and teh upgraded guages, but no tell tale signs of an SLE.

They probably do. I must have been dreaming of some other car, or my senility has returned....again.

I saw one (here) that had the base BASE model guages. It was a 93, IIRC. Looked 'efn weird.

Anyway, that car is definitely not an SLE.

His title might say SLE. My insurance statement classifies our 99 as "SE/SLE" so I could see how his DMV lopped off the "SE" portion.

1G2HY will indicate SE.... But just remember the SLE is simply a package added to an SE... But that is an SE all the way around.. all SLE equipped Bonnevilles will have the Leather interior..
