No mileage, no pics of interior leather or engine bay, 4 words total description. I wouldn't waste the time it'll take to figure out what he's hiding.

Interesting that the color of the boards being put on that building are the same color as the transfer marks on your car. Coincidence?

That's not a bad price at all if it's all that it seems. I'd pay the $30 or whatever it is to get the carfax, or press the seller to provide it themselves, to see if the miles & number of owners is...

Well done! It doesn't meet my nitpicky definition of pristine, but it's definitely cleanish and well maintained (sounding), and the price is quite reasonable.

If you see a pristine, low mile, not gold or white 99-00 without a sunroof, let me know. That was my personal unicorn when I was looking, and I never found it.

Like the sunroof, the HIDs were technically an option on the 98, but also like the sunroof, pretty much no dealer ordered one without it.

You need a deep well 19mm socket for the ECT sensor. A normal socket, and even some supposed "deep" sockets (I'm looking at you, Tekton) are too shallow to swallow the plastic part of the sensor and...
