Well around here, for the 2k-newer SLE'* take the cake. I bet the ratio is
10 SLE'* - 8.5 SE'* -1.5 SSEi'*.

For the 1992-1995'* the ratio looks like:

15 SE'* - 6 or 7 SSEi'* -2 SSE'*



For the 1996-1999'*:

8 SE'* - 4 SLE'* - 4 SSE'* - 1 SSEi (seems like all the 1996-1999 SSEi'* are mostly black, and a silver or a dark blue here and there).

There'* one in this area. I think it'* an 03 SSEi. It is a lighter shade green, not like the traditional Forest Green SSEi'* of the 92-95 era. It does look sharp I have to admit.

There'* a green 2000-2003 SE in Alexandria. It'* done up pretty sweet too. It has nicely tinted windows and some 17" chrome Eagle Alloys '77' series rims. Looks pretty good. I'll see if I can snap a pic of it sometime.

On a side note: The other day (last Friday) in Alexandria I saw a black 1992-1993 SSEi with the chrome scheme like me. It had the factory grey 12 spoke rims like driverjohns white rims, and it had the honeycomb portion of the grille painted silver, window vent visors painted silver/chrome, silver/chrome tinted windows with a large chrome 'Bonneville' decal across the top of the rear windshield. When I saw it I was in the right lane on my side of the road and it was in the right lane on the opposite side of the road. There was too much traffic for me to jump across and pull through a gas station so I took the next street to the right and went around the block. Got back on the main road and made my way through traffic but it was no where to be seen.
Damn!!! I wanted to look the car over and tell them about BC and MNBC. Oh well, I hope I see the car again. It looked sweet.

Its rare to see Bonnevilles here period, SE or SSEi. Pontiacs are not as popular where I am. What I see WAY too many of are BMW 3 series and Audi A4s

I see a decent variety of both here in Cincinnati; I'm not too far from Dayton, Ohio and there'* a plethora of Bonnevilles there!! I counted 7 SSEi'*, over 10 SE'*, several 87-91 SSE'*, and 3 SE'* similar to mine pictured in my sig. I like them all!!

There are a ton of Bonnies on campus. I've seen mostly SE'*, a few SLE'*, 3 SSE'* (including me), and maybe 2 or 3 SSEi'*. Mostly between the years of 88-95. There are a few newer generations.

I definatly see more se style bonnevilles. Every once and a while I'll see an sse/ssei style. I've only seen 2 of the 92-99 style sle'* though (one being mine ) And once, just once, I've seen (and worked on) a 1970 2 door bonne with a 305.
