those sw controls were only used in 1988, after that they changed the steering wheel and used different ones
Yep.


That doesn't look bad without the spoiler

It'* the 3800. I'm not sure why it doesn't have a spoiler. I didn't know whether the spoiler was standard or optional equipment. I take it the spoiler is supposed to be standard? I also notice the high level brake light is in a strange place... maybe that is why!

It drives pretty well. The steering is a little vague compared to what I'm used to but it seems to corner pretty well. It is bouncing a bit over undulations though so I suspect a shock absorber or two may want replacing.

yes, the spoiler was standard on the sse with the high mount brake light mounted in the middle of the spolier. heres a pic of my 1990 sse'* rear end.
