I’ll try to be as detailed and honest as possible about this car so that I don’t waste anyone’s time. I bought this car in December of 2017 and intended to use it as a weekend fun car, however I would feel awful abusing a car this nice and ended up purchasing a s2000 for that purpose as it made more sense out of the box.

Paint is excellent, no dings or dents or noticeable scratches, exterior is probably a 9.5/10. Interior is in pretty good shape aside from the driver’s seat having a bit of wear on the bolster. Car looks absolutely awesome and gets compliments from people all the time. Mechanically the car is in great shape. All fluids, spark plugs, pulleys, belts and clutch changed recently. Rear trunk floor / subframe / differential mount has been inspected and is free of cracks or tears and is in good shape. If you want to have it reinforced as a preventive measure, I can recommend you to a very competent welder who can do the job at a very reasonable price. Engine pulls hard. Everything works as it should.

Have cooling system OEM/aftermarket parts uninstalled that will come with the car at the right price. Also have a bunch of suspension bits that I was planning on installing (see parts list), but never got around to it as I figured there was no point in making the car less street friendly. Will include with sale if new owner wants it.

Being a nearly 20 year old car however, it is not perfect, but all the issues can be addressed with a day or two of work for any somewhat mechanically competent person (I’m just too lazy to get around to it). Driver’s side seat has a bit of wear. Horn needs to be connected (or you can throw stock steering wheel back on since I have an aftermarket one on and will include original). Driver side window is a little slow, the regulator is good, but it is common for the plastic tabs in the regulator to break and/or become stiff. I have the tabs, they just need to be replaced or greased. Wheels have a bit of rash, could probably use refinishing. *Note: CEL just came on due to o2 sensor, will replace prior to sale.*

I am asking $28.5k obo. I'm very open to reasonable offers as its not ideal for me to have two cars right now, however with that said, I'm in no rush to sell as I have a covered parking spot for it and this thing definitely isn't depreciating. Feel free to text me or call me. I'm happy to answer any questions and I will happily talk cars with any enthusiast. Shoot me a text for more detailed pics.

It looks nice and the Ground Control coilovers are a big plus. It needs some interior photos. The price seems fair to me.
