Lachssilber Metallic paint is shown up close from a number of angles in the gallery below. The trunk lid was repainted due to a ding that is reportedly still visible from the inside. Other flaws include a dent below the left taillight, a crease on the driver-side fender, and several blemishes captured in close-up photos, passenger power window does not close and the battery won't hold a charge due to it parked in the garage most days.

Aftermarket “halo” headlights have been added, and a stock trim lip is retained on the lower front valance. Factory 14” bottlecap wheels are wrapped in Yokohama ES100tires. The car has been garaged throughout its ownership.
The turn signals do not auto-cancel according and the odometer reportedly stopped approximately at 227k miles. The seller estimates total mileage to be closer to 230k.
The 2.5L M20 inline-six is linked to a 5-speed manual transmission that sends power through a 3.73:1 limited-slip differential. Additional modifications include a K&N intake and Dinan chip. The clutch was replaced in 2018 along with fresh master and slave cylinders. A replacement cylinder head was installed approximately 25k miles ago along with a new water pump, alternator, and timing belt.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other issues and lists California and New Mexico history since its first entry in 1998 at 88k miles. The previous seller states that the 2016 purchase entry occurred when he moved the car from California to New Mexico. Car is now titled in Texas
