Looks nice, any known water leaks? I'd take a quick look under the carpet padding in each passenger area just to make sure its dry.

The more I look, the more I like. :beerchug:

And the more I drive mine the more I appreciate what a great car they are (and how sad it is that GM had to "ixne ontiacPa") I picked mine up in January and have had to resolve several issues with it but it's doing pretty well. Most of my current issues are "ghosts" in the dashboard. Intermittent diodes flashing on and off, normally working fine but occasionally flashing or not appearing, then re-appearing. I've learned a lot about this car since getting it and it is the first car I've participated in much of the service. I added a music adaptor to attach an iPod to the factory radio and am generally enjoying cleaning it up. Hope we can share notes and good luck with the Bonne!

Super nice color combo. If you haven't already check out those rear wheel wells to see if there's any rot in there. My 97, as clean as it is, had some flaking going on in the top of the passenger well. I chipped away all the rot and fixed that up so it wouldn't get worse.

<--- jealous.

Been looking for a 96-99 SSEi in nearly mint condition for a long time now. They're becoming harder and harder to find.

Good snag on this one!
