Plugs changed to single electrode NGK 5992 after walnut blast.

Transmission Fluid and bolts replaced less than 1000miles ago with Redline D4 Fluid

All performance modifications and maintenance items were installed by me, and I'm incredibly detail oriented and a perfectionist. Nothing on this car is half-assed. You won't find missing plastic covers, panels, retainer clips, screws, everything is as it should be, and torqued to specs. I have a lift, tire changer and tire balancer in my garage along with a press, welder, etc. Rest assured all work performed is flawless.

I am the second owner, previous owner was all about looks and did all the cosmetic modifications, leaving the powertrain completely stock. I added all the performance bolt-ons and tuning. Car is a monster. It pulls 2 car lengths on my full bolt on e85 HKS GTII 7460 Evo from a roll. First and second gears will break the tires loose at will.

It's been garage kept it's whole life by previous owner and myself, and it shows. Never been smoked in, no rips, tears or even visible wear on the seats. No cracked plastic, no worn out buttons or controls, no scratches on the steering wheel. About the only imperfection this car has is some scuffing on the plastic panel behind the passenger B pillar from the previous owner removing a TV box from the rear seats. It's behind the seat and I never notice it.

The exterior is flawless, zero issues. Never been in an accident. None of the VIN panels have been repainted, no bolts have been broken. I believe the bumper covers have been repainted at some point due to rock chips, etc, but bumper covers don't count as far as "factory paint". It does have a few minor rock chips on the front bumper cover and hood but I can touch them up before the sale. Most people ask me if the car is new, to give you an indication of the condition it's in.

I don't really want to sell it as the car is pretty much perfect as it sits. But alas I bought an R35 and I now have 5 cars and that's just too many for 1 man. This car was mainly a weekend driver/cruiser and the wife and I took it on road trips as it's a great long distance car and superb in mountain roads. The downpipes and performance exhaust don't drone on long trips and you can hardly tell they are there until you get on it.

I used to be a buyer for Carmax and bought thousands of cars in my life. I challenge you to find a cleaner, well put together car with this amount of mods as I doubt very few exist. I know mods don't retain their value, and I'm not asking for that as I'm basically selling the car for the price of the mods in it alone. I have the original window sticker, owners manual, factory brochure, both smart keys, etc. I'm sure I'm missing a lot, but I'll update this post as I remember stuff I've inevitably left off. Thanks for looking. Serious buyers can contact me direct and I can face-time with the car to cover any questions.

I apologize for the crappy pictures, like I said it's raining and snowing and I haven't washed the car in about 2 weeks, it normally isn't this dirty. I'll take some better pictures later this week or over the weekend once the weather clears up. I ran home on lunch break to receive a furniture delivery and snapped a few pictures. Not sure how the image size will be, I might have to re-size when I get home.

This car is beautiful. I've always wanted Alpine White and your car is packaged/optioned perfectly. Too bad we can't trade...

Oh, I forgot to mention. I had some coding done to get rid of all the annoying "Gongs" as Clarkson calls them, and add some other features (windows up/down, sunroof open/close, vehicle speed in cluster, etc). Can't remember what that cost, wasn't much though.

Also the Clutch Delay Valve has been removed to improve shifting feel. I have the CDV still, if the new owner wants it I can throw it in the glovebox.

All PM's replied to again.

Bump. Nice day today, albeit cold, but I got out and took some much nicer and higher resolution photos. Also updated the posting as I forgot that I had replaced the transmission fluid and plugs. I plugged the Cobb in today and went to see if there were any shadow codes as I drove the car to Denver and back last weekend, and there was not a single code stored. I'll try and pull up my dyno plots on my laptop and post them as well. I went and ripped on it after taking the photos and first and second gear require very judicial input from the loud pedal otherwise they break loose at will. Keep in mind it's currently on pump gas. On e85 this car is seriously quick.

I have my car on Craigslist in hopes to buy this one. A few bites, but nothing serious.

If only you'd take mine and some cash!
