I purchased this car in the beginning of the year and I'm about ready to free up some garage space to move on to something else. When I bought the car it had an overheating issue that was due to a huge leak at the exhaust manifold gasket. Since replacing it I have only been to the track one time, but the temperature gauge only started creeping on me once during 3 sessions on a 93* day. The temps were happy again after a single cool down lap
This car is an absolute JOY to drive on the track, but I really don't get out there enough to justify keeping this. I will be moving to something a little more street friendly in the future.
Clean Title, Ice Cold A/C and Power steering still intact.
Only trade I'm interested in would be a c5 Z06 (w/ cash on my end obviously)

I can only think of two issues with the car at the moment...
-When reinstalling the downpipe (after replacing exh. mani. gasket) I didn't ziptie the wideband cables down properly and the harness sort of melted together... It still functions perfectly, but if the wideband ever needs to be replaced you will probably need to clip the cable and solder up a new harness
-when installing the cooper scoop I scratched the front area of the hood up a little bit. I just took some very very fine sandpaper to smooth it all out and get rid of the scratches. The paint is perfectly smooth with no visibile scratches, but it doesn't have the shine that the rest of the car does. Barely visible in the photo below.
Outside of this the car has been incredibly reliable and fires up and idles perfectly every single time I get in it. The transmission still shifts perfectly. On the exterior the car is in pretty good shape considering the age... No dings or dents and the paint is in good shape outside of the usual wear & tear / rock chips on the front bumper.
