I like the agressive front end look of the 00-03 SLE/SSEi. 00-03 Bodys stand out against anything next to it, even a later year bonne or GP. 3800 is one of the best motors created.

When I was driving the 06 GP while the SE was in the shop for collision repair I made a similar note. The seat was hard and you could feel every bump on the road. Not very comfortable if you are going away on vacation. In the Bonne you hear the bumps but you dont feel them at all. No wonder why I fell asleep in the back seat every time we drove up to Wisconsin for vacation.

Default Silver Sleeper

Driving from Sun City AZ to Northern Kentucky I realized this was the car I had wanted since I started driving in 1970. It made the trip with NO problems .And oh yea, I screw with the ricers and with the mulletheads in the punked out pick-ups . Its nice to have a sleeper ! And it has a growl to it at idle that is soooooo cool !

there is nothing like coming up behind a 96-99 bonneville (correct me if i'm wrong) the cat like tail-lights put a grin on the ol' face. i once heard a car start behind me and knew by the undeniable growl exactly what it was you ALL know what i mean!

One Favorite thing, huh...as an actual piece of the car, no question. The seats!

Overall though, I really like the way the car is "unique".

Not everyone owns one...
Local law enforcement really doesn't even give me a second look...
Styling that is sportier than most four door cars, yet at the same time, not overdone...
A nice balance between power and luxury (and some decent handling for a car of it'* size)...
That "sleeper car" stealthiness...
