Depends on how you like to drive. The 900SE is a fast cars that handles very well. The 900s is also nice, but not as fast, doesn't handle anything like the SE. I myself own a 96 900SE and like everything about it, though right now it needs a few seals, blower motor, radio head unit, and clutch (result of the rear main seal leaking). I think most of the problems I am encountering are related to the dealer where I bought my car... Anyway check out www.kbb.com. The SE you are looking goes for about $26k retail and the s for about $16k. The short answer is that I think the SE is the much better deal and a lot more fun to drive. Before buying however find a place you trust to check the car out. Also if they offer an extended power train warenty, take it. I bought an additional 3/36 for mine for about $1200, it has already saved me about $2000.
