Wind blocker

Extras:

Porsche windshield sun shade
Front plate mount that screws into front tow hook

Recent air filter and cabin filter
Spark Plugs replaced at 40,000 miles, due again at ~ 80,000 miles
Recent oil and filter change

Other info

I bought this car almost exactly four years ago with ~25,000 miles. It took about a year of searching to find a full-leather manual transmission car. There are tons of PDK cars out there, but it's hard to find a stick. It's really hard to find a color other than gray/silver. I had this one shipped from California. I used it as a daily driver on nice days and my wife and I used it for a lot of long trips up and down the east coast, so it has a lot of highway miles on it. It's a pretty killer road trip car. The top is insulated and wind noise is low in these cars compared to Miatas and S2000s.

It's in excellent condition. The edges of the clear bra are starting to show a little dirt in places, but it's not noticeable unless you're up close. There is a small ding on the passenger's side rear wheel arch that could easily be PDR'd, and I will try to get that done. Two of the wheels have chips in the clear coat from tire changes. No bends or curb rash, though. The interior has a couple of scratches on the driver's door panel leather. Other than that, it's pretty mint. The top is perfect and operates without issue.

I just got the M3, so I can't even consider it, but that's a great car in a good color.

Good luck!

Your seats are actually quite rare as well. I'd make a point of that in the ad. They're very comfortable.


PS: Alex, why haven't you purchased this yet?

Alex's SO doesn't like yellow (makes me kind of worried for him, what other things is she wrong about? )

Josh's car has less mileage

And yeah, I guess when I make up my mind about something it's made up. I really love the car, but I like the idea of one fewer vehicle in the stable and I really like the money to finish the RX-8 and put a slug into my personal investments.

3...2...1 until Alex chimes in with "Well, she did marry me."

I don't like the yellow unfortunately. I'ts not happening, but I keep thinking, "Shit I could replace mine with this, be more comfortable in the seats, have the HPFP fixed already, and have 20+k in my pocket.

Iíve bought cars before from JV and I canít imagine someone Iíd rather buy from.

The yellow thing is secondary, the primary reason is Iím looking 981S instead. Iím just taking my time looking, so I can wait for the right one to show up. (But it wonít be yellow).

Ha, yes on mileage. Plus it's pretty hard for me to get a solid bead on value for my car, but I'm guessing 23 or 24 is the best I could do. I'd love to have the 987.2 and the DFI engine, but it's hard for me to justify a c. 6-7K delta to get it.

I like the yellow, actually, though I will confess I like blue more.

Yeah, but it also comes with a non-fucked up rear window, so, you know.
