You're slighty downgrading the interior in quality, but if you have an SE you're gaining more options. Also you're getting a faster car, that you can modify farther then any Bonneville.

If it'* a 97 Bonnie to a '01 GTP, then yeah. If the Bonnie is much older then that, then, sorry, but no...

Well for example, from my car to a GTP i'd get electronic climate control, full DIC, a HUD, compass, auto dimming mirror, temperature, heated seats (maybe).

Zactly, so you'd be trading up...(you'd get dual climate control in the GTP)

Up in toys, yes. Ride and overall luxury, even trade at most. Most like they GTP will be down a notch considering it'* meant to be sportier. Stiffer ride and such. Not the big car "float" we're used to...

Well, you'd get a stiffer ride even trading up to a newer Bonnie...

Part of the reason I like full size is the "float". Hit a bump in the road, know about it a quarter mile later....

But them Grand Prix'*, specially the new ones, are slick lookin' little cars. Just don't like the tail lights myself...

My '93 Crown Vic did that, and my '82 Caprice Classic, too. I miss those rides....

But I think her trade-off is practical, personally.

I've owned both and I will say as nice as the GTP was the SSEi is more to my taste. Either can be stupid fast with the right mods but the Bonnie has a much more luxury touring feel. The GTP was fast and you felt it, the Bonnie is a much nicer ride. If your going from the SE to the GTP based on the speed dif, try an SSEi before you decide. My 2 cents.
