tempting buy, want opinions!

This is very tempting! I am thinking parts car? What do you guys think?

For $3300:

Cold weather package
Audiophile sound
'03+ HID's
Jackson Racing supercharger
Jackson Racing fuel rail
Jackson Racing injectors
3" intake
6" K&N filter
3" MAF sensor
Borla exhaust
Dynapro wideband sensor with gauge
Steeda short shifter
VF Engineering dogbone transmission mount.
Spec billet 2 piece flywheel
Lowered with unknown springs/struts
Gunmetal Euro wheels
Newer brakes, 02 sensors, front tires, and catalytic converter.

Problems:
Needs a new transmission and clutch. The transmission needs to be replaced. I dont care what your "guy" says, there is a fist sized whole blown in the case. The Spec flywheel can be relined instead of buying another one for $700.
Small crack on the front bumper
Damage from accident on drivers side rear lower quarter panel.
Some small trim pieces need paint.

Good news for you, I don't like loud exhausts! I always wanted a SC, though.

I am getting married in July, and I already told her I might do something like this before it's too late! Gotta live a little more before there are little future Foci drivers running around!
