Craigslist ad...don't think it's worth putting in the cars for sale thread. Of course, no affiliation.

It's in great shape, I just need the money right now way more than I need a car so I'm letting it go.

No real cons about it, it runs well. 1.6L so you can put a good turbo in it and get like 250 horsepower. Right now its at about 170 because I have wide racing tires on it.

The convertible top works.
Car is a manual.
It has a $800 head unit that plays cds, dvds, and tapes, and if you get the service for it, you can have navigation built in.
It has a pretty huge screen on it.
201,000 miles but still going strong.
Insurance is only $50 a month with my absolutely horrendous driving record.

Price is negotiable, but I need the cash.

that has to be a joke. he knew roughly the power output a turbo would put on that car so im guessing the tire remark was a joke....i hope

HAHAHA!

This guy is a total noob. I just called him from my office line. He said he only had the car for about a month and has better things to do than have a car right now.

He bought it from a Midas mechanic who did all the work on it and told him it's between a 170-180 horsepower due to the "extreme cam variables in the 1.6" (exact quote)...

He also said he doesn't know if it's lowered or what size these wide racing tires are.

"I have no idea honestly. Maybe like seventeens? Is that too big? I'm going down to it now, I'll check and get back to you"

That was his response to me. At least he uses correct English in text messages.

He has an $800 stereo, of course he doesn't know anything mechanical. C'mon, we all know people like this guy.

Seems like it has push button start now too...and looks like the price went up by $50...probably because the economy's inflating...

It's a great car, I just have more important things right now.

Pictures coming soon, I have to grab a camera from my buddy before I can get any up.
