he is asking 2500 but says he is flexible and it has what appears to be 17"wheels. in which if they are 17s I will be selling for sure. something around 500-700 pending tire and wheel condition. if they are 18s I will most likely sell still but wont be easy as they are the same as mine and I could use a spare or 2 but o well.
How did this end up going? How many miles were on the Green zx3 you were looking at?

Well it looked like that car was beaten anyhow, the fact it had after market begins to suggest that, and the new fender gives you an even bigger hint. Besides, I could see from the pictures that the 2 rear wheels were bent so you would have had a tougher time selling them. All in all, this could be a blessing in disguise!

didn't notice the wheels. at the same time though I had a feeling that he stopped responding because there was info about the car that he didn't want to say.

test drove this car today. runs great and has a 4-2-1 long header wrapped with that heat shield stuff (don't remember the name) and exhaust, nothing to loud. aem cold air intake all the way down to the bottom of the bumper, I would most likely shorten it some to keep it away from the water better. needs paint work and some interior pieces painted because the paint they did looks horrible and that's not to big of a deal just cosmetic. needs a new battery and they said when thy got the car it had electric seats custom installed. the issues with the seats is that the driver seatbelt is missing part of the buckle, easy fix but not exactly road legal until fixed. needs the part that the seat belt clips into.tires are balding but I have my own wheels with brand new tires on them so that's no big deal.

told him I would call him later to let him no if I want to buy it. I might call him tomorrow and offer 1700-1800 for it. said he doesn't want to go under 2k for it though.

I think it has a lot of upgrades to it. If ur needing a seatbelt I'm here to help. Or other interior peices.
Seats look awesome.. Nice red/orange!
2k is still fair.

yeah, its has a complete aem intake, the 4-2-1 long header, exhaust that sounds really good imo. had a nice deep growl but wasn't loud. the seats are red, I prefer blue but seat covers are cheap.


do you have a seat belt? how much you want for it?

will do if I buy the car. ill offer right around junk yard price though.

yeah I didn't even bother to look at the suspension, it drove smooth and easy. didn't pull and going over bumps was nothing with it. my 18s would look nice on it.
