Default what'* more popular in your town?

SE'* or SSE/i'*? here I'd defenately say SE'* 1. Cause thier more produced than the SSE/i'* 2. I think people here just like them better than the more aggressive SSE body style, 3. their a little more cheaper (depends on options and years)

Myself, I don't really care; I'd take a 96 SE over an pre 96 SLE anyday ( the minor changes on 96+ SE'* just look that much better) only a handful of young people drive SSE body style Bonnies ( one guy went as far as to tell me he didn't like my bonnie because of where the foglights were located) got kinda upset but on I went,

Yup, SE'* defenetly own in my town...... oh well, the few the proud the SSE/i body style drivers like myself are happy to stand out anyway,

I don't think SSE/i'* are a majority in any town actually?

I don't know if one is any more popular/prevelant than another here. I personally prefr the looks of the SE. I don't like the narrow fog loghts. In my humble/worthless opinion, the ruin the flow of the front end.

not worthless Mos, Actually I kinda agree.... for 96+* anyway, I know thiers little difference between the two but it'* just those little differences that make your gen SE'* look a lot better, I think SSE body style is for people who like something a little different; Pontiac made fewer of them for various reasons; Perhaps Pontiac thought they where stepping out on a limb when they introduced the SSE/i body style for 92, still basically looks the same today.

Considering a lot more SE'* were built then SSEi'* its going to be rare to see SSEi. I usually look, esp at the newer ones for the sleek Ei to be seen on the doors.

SE'* for sure, but SSEi is a rare treat to see

GP'* tho...like locust, they're everywhere...its gets tiresome. Thank goodness there are not a lot of Auroras around. My ride turns heads, much like an SSEi turns my head

I see mostly late model SLE'* around Columbus. Only seen like 5 SSEi'* (two of them are mine). Most of our older model Bonnies are the 89-91 and are beat to hell (sad really). I don't see any 92-95 and an occasional 96-99 although mostly SE models.

can't beleive that hardly any 92-99'* round thier hmmm...... aw well, they dominate here especially 92-95 SE'* followed by 96-99 SE'* I do however see more 92-95 SSE body styled bonnies thatn 96-99'* and strangely enough thiers more SLE'* than SE'* here (00+*) I usuallly see a lot of blue,bronze, and maroon SLE body style 00 bonnies around here, I however have NEVER EVER SEEN A GREEN 00+ Bonneville here ever! do they even make green bonnevilles anymore

You sure it'* the ride Jim? And not people going "Cool, but how'd they teach...." Never mind, I said it before....

We do have a lot of 00+'* around here that are SSE and above now that I've had a day or 2 to watch....

only 3 SSEi'* i've ever seen here. One i see reguarly (its mine) and the other guy i wave to all the time but have no clue who he is (those are the 2000+ models). I've seen one 96? SSEi that was my teachers and she'* had it forever. I love the SSEi'* and you never see them and they do turn heads and open mouths when the gas is applied properly
