2) RSM (Rear Shock Mount) - Non issue, you have the best solution already (Rogue Engineering).

1/4/13 Update - Price reduced to $19,995 from $21,000. Also added a couple new photos.

11/14/12 Update - Added a few new photos. Also a couple thoughts from someone who saw it in person:

I went to see this car this week. It is a sunroof delete, Canadian market car.

The car has a couple of dents from rocks that go to the primer and the interior is quite dirty. A bit of rust starting at the rear of the rocker panel, the aluminum driver side mirror mount is corroded. Front bumper alignment is a bit off also. Glove box has definitely been fixed and the airbag light is off (unlike on most M coupes).

The car does indeed have the Forbes subframe fix, but it still has the single-ear diff cover. Suspension, exhaust look to be stock. Tires at around 60-70% life and brake seem about the same.

10/24/12 Update - Must not have sold as it's back on Now at $21,000 up from $20,000

Sold 10/9/12 - Listing removed; looks like it sold.

8/19/12 Update - Just realized it's a sunroof-delete too.

This coupe was sold just a couple months ago but is already back on the market. The photos are the same as the previous sellers. It is definitely a well sorted coupe including a Randy Forbes subframe reinforcement kit. Mileage is only up about 1,000, and I assume it's still in great shape for the relatively high mileage.
