Non-Sunroof Coupe

The car has ~190K miles, but those are mostly highway. Apparently, the 1st owner was a doctor who had offices in San Diego and Phoenix and he put a bunch of miles on it while traveling between the two.

I purchased it 2 years ago and had it shipped to VA. It had 183K on it when I received it.

The Good:

Upon arrival, it received the following:

Koni Sport Shocks
H&R Sport Springs
Pads (Mintex) & Rotors all the way around
(Rebuilt) Front Calipers
Subframe Bushings (Powerflex)
H&R Swaybars
Swaybar Links (Meyle)
Strut Bearings
Tint (VA legal)
Plugs (Bosch)
Valve Cover Gasket
Rogue Engineering RSMs
Blower Resistor
Whalen Seat Bushings
Thayer Seat Tilt Kit
Leatherz Armrest
Lower Grill Insert (Neverdone)
Alpine MRP-F300 Amp
Alpine CDE-135BT Headunit
JL Audio C2-600 Front Speakers
Diff & Tranny Fluids - Redline D4 Synthetic, Redline 75W90
Fuel Filter
Tow Hook Plate Mount
Glove Box Sag Kit

The previous owner replaced the waterpump/thermostat replaced at 123,000. Had ball joints and a cam sensor replaced at 135,000. Also claimed to have changed the oil every 3000 miles with Castrol RS Racing Synthetic 10W60 and to have detailed it monthly with Zaino products. is also hardwired for a Valentine RD.

Parts included:
Clutch Kit
UUC clutch line
A/C Belt
Serpentine Belt
Belt Tensioners
Shift Pins
Shift Pin drift kit
Bentley Manual

The Bad:
Shift pins are sticking (has the lean towards 5th gear)
Headliner has some small tears
Seats have tears at some of the seams.
Bulb burned out behind gauge in center console
Crack in center console by seat heater button
Small ding on the roof
Rear wiper doesn't work
Passenger lock doesn't lock with the remote
Small oil leak
Clutch will need replacing in the future, not critical at the moment
Driver side armrest on door has an elbow intent
Rims have some curb rash/peel
Headlight covers have some crazing

The car is in pretty decent shape for the miles and use it has gotten.

Asking $11K

Also just noticed that this is the 28th coupe produced and what appears to be the very first that was not labeled pre-production. Very cool!

The mileage is way high, but it's had a ton of great mainteance done in the past two years. It does look good for the mileage. It will definitely need some TLC but would probably be a solid driver. I think the price is fair.
