Sounds like a winner, given the price, mileage, and full maintenance history. CSTU93 might be right about it being a business car, but I would guess screwy records. I found out last year that my...

My initial impression was a pretty soft initial bite, then it grabs nicely. It's a little disturbing at first, not having much resistance in the pedal. Maybe additional bleeding of the system in a...

Good job on the first post research, you nailed the most likely culprits. Get that ECU serviced or replaced before throwing money at anything else. There's a good chance it'll solve the problem,...

If I was local, I'd probably have to grab that tow hitch (Curt?) just in case the need ever arose.

p.s. The seller is a good dude, based on previous exchanges. :)

I'd like to see it at a usable ride height and with wheels that don't look like SC430 editing room rejects. I have a feeling it would look like an extremely modern sports car.
