I have a 97 base deville and found an awesome deal on a 99 d'Elegance.

What are the diferences between the base deville and the d'Elegance?

I have a '99 DeElegence, but do not know the differences between it and a regular DeVille but advise you to take heed on the awesome deal and make sure that the deal dosen't come with a H/G problem that could account for that awesome deal.
My advise would be to research some of the posts here regarding these cars especially the late 90's models.
The car could run, start,idle and run like a top but still have the H/G problem that will ultimately surface and get progressively worse.

The person is selling it on craigslist for $2600 in mint shape except for a dent on the drivers side door.

Like I said, have it checked out.
Other posts will inform you of a test that you could have done to determine if there is a H/G problem.
These engines are prone to this problem.
That $2600 great deal car could end up a $6000 not so great deal if the reason for selling the car is due to a known H/G problem.
