I would only trade if you really don't like the looks of your SE.

So about a 20K mile difference...I'd trade, personally. I like the styling better and leather and extra options are very nice to have, especially the HUD. But it depends on what you like. It sounds like you'd like it better. Of course, if you really want the extra power, I'd wait until I found an SSEi.

I didnt mention that the body as far as rock chips and scrathes go is better on this car. And of course it already has the dual exhaust on it with the nice rear fascia. A 12pk cd player in the trunk and the flip down arm rest on the back seat the panel that clips up to close the trunk off * stays up unlike my 03 se the clip is broke. 3.05 gear ratio besides 2.93 so a little more snappy of the line not much but a little.

the three 00s that i am familiar with personally have PHENOMINAL service records



also, i would never trade a newer car with less miles for an older car with more miles for nothing more than asthetical purposes
