I purchased this car in 2012 with 75k and have done every modification to it myself over the past 7 years. The blower was put on in April of 2013, Fueling in June of 2013, DOD delete and cam swap Oct of 2014, and has been running fantastically since. I drove the car for two winters then have garaged it over winter for the last five years, the car now has 132k on the clock. I have many of the stock parts still, including the intake, suspension, calipers, as well as a couple extra pulleys for the blower and some other miscellaneous bits.

The car has the premium package with leather, heated, and 6 way powered seats, and leather wrapped steering wheel.

Full disclosure, this car isn’t perfect, a few of the issues it has are as follows:

  • Oil weep from the front timing cover that causes a few drips on the garage floor. It’s so slight that I’ve never had to top up between oil changes.
  • Small tear in passenger seat that has been there since I purchased the car and has not grown.
  • Small dent in driver quarter panel, but I rarely even notice it so it’s not been a priority for me, would be easy to PDR.
  • The car was rear ended prior to my ownership and was repaired by Walser Collision and Glass in Aug. of 2009.
  • Rock chips here and there.

I don’t need to sell but I feel that it’s time for me to move on, I have title in hand and can part with it at any time. $18,500 OBO

Can you share more about the, "Android auto running on Raspberry Pi in glovebox"?

Looks like a well sorted car. GLWS
