Other stuff:

spare SRS harness and sensors to decorate your holiday tree

Original spare tire, (but it won't fit over the Brembos)

Problems:

A few tiny rock chips in regular places (wheel wells, hood) and a tiny paint defect where the driver's side headlamp cover was rubbing on the hood (see photos) This has been readjusted but the defect remains.

One of the HID bulbs ignites more slowly than the other (but works) and can't be turned off then on again quickly without cooling down (takes 10 seconds)

tiny green light on TCS button is burnt out

LR wheel minor curb rash
LF wheel mismatched touch up paint from a scratch. (see photos)

parking brake leather has wear - normal but just looks odd with the quality of the rest of the interior.

Things I've done in the 1 year/4000 mi I've owned it:

replaced SRS computer to fix SRS light
valve adjustment/fresh oil change
new Interstate battery
replaced air filter
fixed a coolant leak (bad hose)
Had the subwoofer and passenger side speaker rebuilt
rewired the HID system
Lubed aspirator fan
repaired faulty intermittent wiper problem

otherwise it's been trouble free. All systems work fine. A/C is COLD
All these mods add up to big $$$, the car could be returned to stock fairly easily and cheaply if you wanted to sell the mods.



Clean Carfax, never damaged
Have many service records/documentation for the mods

All mods (including clutch, transmission, brakes, paint) have less than 6K miles on them!

The car performs flawlessly in every way. The car really does look new and the paint was done right. Really must be seen to be appreciated. $36,500. Car is located north of Cincinnati, Ohio.

This car is a great deal if you are interested in the mods, (and most people would be - they are generally considered top notch and tasteful) The cost of buying another car and bringing it up to this condition would far far exceed my asking price.

The pictures that the original seller has makes it look like the car was damaged. In particular, the front bumper is broken, cracked and severly beat up.

Are you sure this car hasn't been in an accident?

It just looks to me like they're in process of removing the old paint. the bumper isn't a single piece (upper and lower portions). I don't see any cracks, breaks, or areas where is it disfigured.


The car was painted because the previous owner was a perfectionist and the paint wasn't perfect. Plus he wanted the roof red. He also had the mast antenna hole filled in and mounted a rear window antenna.

I can't be absolutely sure there was never any damage because I didn't have it the first 55K miles but to my and the previous owner's best ability to tell, there is no evidence of any accidents. You are welcome to have it inspected. Given the degree to which the last owner had this car disassembled as you can see from the photos I think he'd know if it had been damaged. Plus he would have been a fool to invest so much money in a wrecked car.

Well apparently the carfax isn't clean, but I'm trying to find out the truth. If someone wants to post it I'd appreciate it. The car is straight and I think the carfax is in error but if there is any truth to it I will be forthcoming and adjust the price accordingly.


here a link to the previous owner's for sale posting if anyone's interested in seeing when I bought it

Well it seems the carfax, as delivered straight from Carfax, is clean after all.


Anyone who is interested in this car is more than welcome to schedule an inspection. I have a lift available if you wish to see the underside of the car.
