Default Urgent NB Question-Purchase Pending

Looking at a 99 out of state. Owner says has sport package and LSD but want to make sure. He did say he doesn't know it is a LSD, but both wheels spin.

Anyway, it has 15's but has leather package so they could come strictly from that.

Has a chin spoiler but no rear (comes with sport package)

He can't tell what the shocks are.

There is a sticker inside the door frame that says "sport S". He is supposed to be sending me a pic. Is this the Hard S package??? Does this car have a Torsen?

I will buy sight unseen if it is a sport for the money he is asking ($7500 and 51K miles)

Please reply asap as I don't want to let it get away.

Thanks

Sounds like a hard S, so it should have the torsen and bilsteins. Buy it and sell me the stock 15's, or I'll trade you my stock 14's and cash, or my new Motegi MR 7's.

Leather = LSD

Sport S = plain jane suspension.

No "sport" cars have leather.
All sport cars will have "Hard S" suspension.
All sport cars have cloth.
Cloth is good.
Leather sucks.
Sell leather and get cloth.
Profit.

What is leather worth? I could give two chits whether I have leather. Just wanted the Torsen. More money for future snail if it is worth the time to sell.

Easiest way to find out is call mazda dealership with vin and they'll tell you all the factory options on it.
