Seller Description

1 of 94 made in Arctic Silver with gray/black interior. It has 132K miles (about 7k a year) and it’s a great value as it’s been dealer maintained since new and has had over $8k spent on it by me and the previous owner in just the past 5k miles and another several thousand spent on it over the past few years. It’s also fitted with the rare DINAN Free-Flow exhaust system, DINAN Stage 2 software and will come with the DINAN Carbon Fiber cold air intake (with carb sticker for SMOG), and DINAN aluminum strut brace. The car is currently fitted with the stock air box. The car also comes with a matching color center console, as the car’s center console has a small crack next to the AC button and I haven’t had time to replace it. I’ll also include the original EV gauge, which was never installed by the dealer. The car comes with the original books, spare keys, tools and even the window sticker. The interior is very clean, has been well maintained and recently received a full leather treatment and presents well. The headliner was replaced by the dealer a few years ago. The rear subframe is original, recently inspected, in perfect condition with no signs of damage at all (pictures available). The engine runs strong and pulls hard on acceleration and no issues. The tires are newer with plenty of life left. The car has a clean Carfax and California title with registration paid until 2018. More pictures and details available upon request. Located on Southern California. Asking $19,500.

Another coupe for sale by Daniel. It's has some nice Dinan upgrades and a lot of recent maintenance. It looks pretty amazing for the mileage. The price seems fair to me.
