I think its a solid deal, if the engine wasn't driven hard when out of tune.


I kinda wish I bought that car now.

Interesting that they're not saying that now. Is the price higher than it was before?

He's gonna call them tomorrow. The carfax looks good too.

nah, about the same buy it now price. I don't have the old link, but I do remember that the car needed tuning. I tried to work a deal on a $1500 off because I'd have to get it tuned, and he would not budge on price. I also tried to get the car without navigation and the ricer wheels, but he wouldn't do that either. I wanted to get a deal, since the price was the same as the KBB+new turbo system. In hindsight, it might have been worth it considering how little time I have for my car.

Didn't you almost have a turbo on your car too???

I like this car, even the white/black contrast. The one thing I cannot stand is the white/black contrast with the white/tan interior. Oh yeah... faux wood roxx. If they dropped the price 2k so I could buy it some black interior and strip off that wood ****, I'd consider it. Or if I was Helen Keller.

if you're not going to buy this car, I'll show it to someone else who's interested.
