11/17/12 Update - Added a few more photos from it's recent service.

11/15/12 Update-  A maintenance upgrade from the seller:

Beisan Vanos kit has been installed, Anti-rattle and upgraded Vanos seal, Along with a new cam cover and vanos gaskets, and a fresh set of NGK R spark plugs mileage is at 109,650.

11/7/12 Update - Added a few more recent photos. It looks really good for the mileage.

The miles are on the high side, but this coupe has been very well documented. It also has some nice upgrades. It's in greate shape for the mileage, and in a relatively rare color combo. I think the price is probably fair due to the condition and documentation. Some more recent photos would be nice though.
