You might want to check how much insurance will be. SSEi'* have a supercharger and hence you get pinged for more $$ when it comes to insurance; if money might be tight for ya that is.

Otherwise enjoy the car, perhaps see if you can pass the deal onto one of us if you can, we have members all over and many are looking for an SSEi.

the car is green with the tan leather interior.

and it has those rims on it.
I was also wondering if there are any cheap preformance upgrades that i could do to it.

Those are 00+ bonneville rims. I'd be inclined to get a set of oem torque stars for model year 98 to keep the car close original unless you plan on getting different aftermarket wheels.

when i was checking insurance, i got quotes for both supercharged and non supercharged and the price was the same.

I have had my 98 ssei for 6 years. I put on 70,000 miles since and I love it. I had the supercharger replaced at 75,000 miles under extended warranty just because they have been known to fail shortly after. Many people here can fix that for ya if you r nice to em though, and have beer .
It all depends on how it was cared for. Mine was owned by my parents and well taken care for.
It may feel like a race car, but you can't treat it like one.....I think of it as a great looking,sporty, luxury vehicle with lots of power.
take the deal
