    1997-99 Deville Base vs d'Elegance

    Hey guys,
    I've been looking to buy a 97-99 Deville and I'm trying to figure out what additional features come with the d'Elegance model above the base model. Heated seats and CD player are the only differences I could tell. Anybody know for sure? Thanks, Tommy

    Well the diff between my base 98 and d'elegance 97 are: rainsense wipers, upgraded sound system(amp & more speakers), rear pass vanity mirrors. Heated seats/lumbar are prob standard also. Gold emblems also I believe along with diff rims. Not sure if cd changer is. Moonroof is still an option as mine is aftermarket. You can download an owners manual may have other differences.
    Engine, suspension wise they are the same, Concours has the electronic suspension($$$$)

    Thank you for the information. Now, I'm glad I just lost bidding on a 97 Deville on Ebay. I'm going to keep my eye open for 98-99 over 97 with that info. Tommy

    I think you're misunderstanding rodknocs' post. He's comparing base to d'Elegance, the year is irrelevant.

    FWIW, according to an UNSCIENTIFIC poll on this site, '97-'99 Northstars have the highest rate of HG failure, '99 being the worst.

    Thank you for the information. d'Elegance seems the way to go. The head gasket issue is definitely a concern though.
