    It saddens me to have to sell my baby, but finances are what they are and other priorities have come up. Tastefully modified to around 620 RWHP without compromising ride quality or reliability. I just listed the car at cars.com, but I’d rather sell to someone here and the listing format is a bit limited so I'm adding information here as well. The car is in tip top shape, but please make sure to review all modifications/improvements and minor issues. A Carfax is included with the cars.com listing. In addition to the photos from the original listing and flickr album, I have plenty more available on request.. Asking $28,975; $20,000 invested. The car is in Baytown, TX (east side of Houston). If you have any questions at all, please shoot me a PM and I will follow up with more contact info. 64,848 miles.

    Here is the mod list & general information about the vehicle (also on cars.com). The listing limits text characters to only a couple paragraphs; this list is also at cars.com but a little harder to read since I had to take a screenshot and include with photos.

    · $72 – NGK TR7-IX Iridium Spark Plugs gapped to 0.028”

    · Weathertech.com - Front floormats, rear floormats, & trunk mat.
    · Weathertech.com - Sunshade (fits perfectly).




    MINOR ISSUES

    · Airbag Light. AIRBAGS FULLY FUNCTIONAL. When swapping Recaro seats (2012), there is an occupancy sensor under the passenger seat that has to be changed out with a 2010 model and the light will go off. I simply don’t have the funds to replace, as noted in listing. Cheapest fix is roughly $200 for a salvage 2010 eBay seat (V6, GT is fine) & swap the sensor.

    · Left Front Fender Door Ding. The left front fender has a ding in it from some a**hole in a parking lot. I have not had it fixed yet. It is small but it is there. See listing photos.

    · Passenger side Fender Repair. Car was grazed by a passing vehicle while it was sitting in a parking lot. Very minor repair performed by Imperial Collision Specialist, one of the best repair facilities in the country, specializing in OEM quality super high performance car repairs (Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, etc.). Original fenders - not replacements - were easily repaired in-place. Imperial is not cheap, so filing a claim was necessary at the time, but absolutely worth it. The quality of their work is amazing; 100% OEM restoration. If you have any concerns, please feel free to call me, do your own research on Imperial, or contact them yourself with the VIN for more info. I can also provide proof of work there.

    Very sorry Red98. It’s been a long couple weeks at work - turnaround 12 hour shifts for two weeks straight (nights), even for us engineers. Also just found out my cars.com alerts have been going to spam! I’m going back to days tomorrow. Believe it or not I’m usually very responsive, & now I have your # saved. Looking forward to chatting with you.

    Thanks everyone for the bumps and kind words. Seems like as soon as I got the car where I wanted it life had other plans! Would really love to see it go to someone here on the forums rather than the highest bidder on cars.com.
