Took the plunge

OK,

I finally took the plunge on a close to local (from the Atlanta, GA area) 2005 9-2x Aero 5MT, 96,000 miles on the clock.

One owner, most of the records since new including window sticker, been in the south all its life.  Original paint with a few minor parking lot door ding kind of things.  Drives pretty good.  Need to consider the timing belt soon and a few other minor base-line items.

Should be a good one (fingers crossed!).

Re: Took the plunge

Get the timing belt done ASAP, that's an 11 year old piece of rubber keeping everything together.

Protein packed, podiatry related illustration:

New photo added to quell the machinations of the rabid zealots who troll this arena looking for the bottom feeding scum from Nigeria and other loathsome places.

If the self-anointed are here to protect the community from the hooligans; who will protect us from them?  It’s a rhetorical kinda’ question…

And absolutely "Yes" to the need to replace an 11 year old timing belt real soon.

Thanks,

Re: Took the plunge

+3 on getting the timing belt done ASAP. Well past its due date and timing belt failure on these engines is no bueno. Interesting posting feet and meat when buying something vs selling but I think you'll fit in just fine here.  biggrin
