I still don't understand how it'* a '98 SLE with the SE body style Do you have "H4U" on the cover as well? I thought all SLE'* include the 1SD RPO but not all cars with 1SD are necessarily SLE'*...

Sorry for being an A$$ and dragging this on, but I'm still confused
Didn't the SSE appearance for the SLE'* start in 1999? I thought that was the case.

The color is silver satin. Mine is a 97 and does not have the SLE package, but does have the upgraded 16" wheels. (Bonnevilles with hub caps over steel 15" wheels are just . . . sad looking.) As I looked at all the extras your SE has. . .electronic climate control, better stereo, leather buckets, etc., I also figured "SLE".

I was unaware (until now) that the SLE got the SSE styling at some point. I'd guess it was 99 then, if this car is really a 98 and not a 97.

Nice car! Outside, it looks just like mine! (clear corners *COUGH* clear corners).

Nope its an SLE.... There were 1SA, 1SB and 1SC SE'*...... For the SLE you had the H4U SLE Package included in the 1SD option group...

The Trim for the SLE package was not a standard item.. It could be added on.. The Majority of the SLE'* for 98-99 did have the trim package tho..

Bill,

Thanks! You ROCK!


OK I will check for the H4U code as well. The car is still at the shop right now so it will be next week. I'm waiting for the Sirius antenna that I bought used on the 'bay so they can finish it up.


Yes, I think clear corners are in my future. Keep in mind that this is my business mobile so I have to be relatively tame on mods. I have a couple of hobby cars for that.

Case in point, I'm a 1SB SE and most definitely not SLE. Cloth interior, 60/40 split bench front seats, column shifter, basic "3 *****" HVAC controls, etc.

And to add to this, Most 1SC bonnevilles for 97-98 had Buckets in cloth, ECC, Keyless entry and some had steering wheel controls...

My 95 SE is actually a 1SC in SE form with buckets and the like... No ECC no Keyless( <--- I added it tho )....

93-95 would leave you with a 1SC or 1SD SE, But the 1SC or 1SD could be had with the H4U SLE package...

96-99 was a different story... lol... Strange how they worked it all out

WAIT , I picked up an antenna for my 98 at a J/Y for a fraction of that $229.00...It is easy to install....four bolts (I believe) and a little twisting around. I had a broken cable in my antenna, but my motor was good...Can't get the antenna cable as a seperate part anymore
