Default Hello , Newbie, SE..SEL ? Confused

I own a 2000 Bonneville Pontiac. How do I determine what model it is SE, SLE, etc ? I can't find anything anywhere that tells me. It seems to be fully loaded. Thank you for your help.

doesn't say on the side. you could decode you vin umm are you super charged. SLE will have duel exhaust and pig nose fog lights. The Se has single exhaust and wide out fog lights.

Thanks nighth12 and sawgunner. The eighth letter in the VIN is a K. Does that mean anything ? Its fancy but doesn't have a sun roof and I don't believe it is supercharged. It looks like Nighthhwk12'* pictures so I guess that makes it SE.

Welcome to the BonnevilleForum . Sounds like an SLE. Pics would help. Using www.photobucket.com to host them is the easiest way. Once you upload pictures there, use the Tags [img] [/img] that are provided there.
