If only I could swap it out for my wife's car for just one day to see her reaction to the sound (and 3 pedals)

Currently experiencing a great deal of want. However, my garage is currently full and my wallet is currently empty. I could empty my garage, fill my wallet, and buy it but......... not yet.

If you think that's bad, don't venture into the comments.

Yes I would have to leave the couch due to the fact that I don't have $20k laying around

Wish I did though!! Although honestly I'd probably prefer an RX8 LS instead.

I liked the comment that the engine bay is so tight that replacing the spark plugs would be nearly impossible.



I'm not sure where he thinks the spark plugs are, but access looks pretty easy to me.

The whole "Nice Price or Crackpipe" thing was quite an experience. Kind of funny to let people sit back and armchair quarterback your car. I was tempted to chime in to correct some of the misinformation but I knew better.

As I expected there's no such thing as bad publicity. I talked to a ton of interested buyers yesterday, and the Jalopnik post had over 20k views and almost 8k votes. 8 thousand! Almost 2 thousand of which said they thought the car was well priced; I only need one buyer.

And, because I understand basic economics, I know that I can always change the price if it doesn't sell.

All very true! Way to approach it man, well done.

Plus hey... The longer it doesn't sell, the longer you get to enjoy it.

Honestly that's a completely fair deal for the car, I don't think most people realize just how much a ls3 and t56 cost. Then again people are idiots so what can you expect Good luck with the sale man!
