Thanks for the kind replies.

To reply to some of the questions, as much as I wish it didn't, the car has some minor imperfections that the camera doesn't pick up. It hasflaws you can see if you're within 2 feet of the car. :( As for the tint, it'* Smoke color, medium tint (35%). The car has 32,000 miles on it.

When I bought it last Sept. it was moderately swirled, had rock chips and some minor scratches. I've since tried to take car of those. I don't have much road rash on the lower panels. They are actually in good shape. I'll keep an eye on those.

I recently had the car detailed and asked my guy to work the paint with Meguiars #83 Dual Action Cleaner/Polish. That was not aggressive enough to get out all the swirls, but it got out most. Given that the car is black and a daily driver, I'm not sure how much I can do to prevent swirls.I'm going to see how bad it gets over the next six months. If I can keep them at bay, I will plan on aggressively working the paint next spring to get all of them out.

As for hitting 13'*...I'm going next weekend to the track. I believe the 3" DP I installed a couple months ago really got me past my KR/tuning wall I hit last year.

Car looks awesome.

Just bought my first Pontiac yesterday.

Been in love with Bonnies for a long time, and SSEi'* have always had a special place in my heart since working at a Pontiac dealership in SW Michigan as a kid.

So, yeah, those pics give me hope about my '02 black SSEi...

it definately looks great! I wonder why you 00 SLE/SSEi folk don't add that extra emblem on the trunk like the previous gens I think it would look pretty slick.
