Fixer upper. 13k, needs a serious detailing, 4 tires and a clutch. I went to see it, nice but more work than I'm willing to put into a car. Too bad, pretty much exactly what I was looking for. Black on black with style 42's. Apparently it hasn't been started/moved in 3 months. Too bad the price isn't negotiable...

Looks good but I'm hoping to find something with lower mileage. Interesting, he works at the hospital too...

A/C might not be a big deal. It cost me $180 to fix my a/c and refill it.

Holy crap, don't get yer knickers in a bunch just yet kids. I don't have it yet.

Details:
2000
Orient Blue-Tan interior
Auto
Style 5's
Came with 16" meshies and winter tires
tint-kind of purpley though, I'll have to get it redone

2 small rust spots on the trunk, gotta get that fixed
Looks like the aux fan let go at one point, but the hood was fixed, not well but fixed.

Mechanically, it's in great shape. Quite possibly one of the few that hasn't been beat and has had maintenance done!

It has sport seats, shadowline trim, xenons...

Oddly enough, at a dealer. It was one of the first ones I saw and I kept going back to it to use it as a comparison to all the others I saw.

That black fixer upper was the second worst I'd seen, the other was a 99 6 speed that had no power steering! At least the 99 was driveable.

The only other one that was in better shape was an 01 M-pack but they wanted 20k and left no room for negotiating.

I think I'm happy, a little nervous but happy. I keep wondering if I shouldn't have stuck it out to find a manual tranny or n E46 with a ZHP package.

Should be ready sometime tomorrow.
