New owner of a 2004 SVT EAP 3-door

Hello,

I'll start with pics of the outgoing car, some of you may have seen it, but I doubt many of you have.




So I was driving home from the local golf course through the local Auto Mall, and my friend said "Hey, is that an SVT?" I didnt get a good look at it and said "Nah, probably not." I hadn't seen one in my auto mall on a lot since they were new. He told me to turn around and check anyway, since we had nothing better to do.

I proceeded to flip a U and noticed the front bumper (all I could see from that direction) was indeed an SVT. So I parked on the side of the street and got out and walked up to it. Then... "Oh my gawd" I said. My friend, only knowing a bit about SVT's, was confused, since the car looked to be in great shape. "It's an EAP!". The closest I had found an SVT EAP to me was 75 miles away and here was a 2004 Pitch Black EAP 3-door with 66k on the ticker right in my back yard.

Here are the pics:



There's only two minor dings (smaller than golf ball size) on the rear-driver quarter and some rock chipping on the front bumper (not unexpected with the mileage). But everything else is perfect, I dont think the backseats were even sat in. Carfax checked out and its been a Southern California car its entire life with a clean title.

Best part is, I paid 8500 for it, not including my trade in, so I don't mind the slightly high mileage, especially since the rest of the car is in fantastic shape.

Out with the old, in with the new :-D

-Honorsystem

DAMN that white sedan looks good with '03 SVT wheels!

Congrats on the new EAP, though. Hopefully you won't have to use the a/c much - with it being black and your being in So.Cal. - because it definitely detracts from the pleasure of driving the car (although I hear Tom's Tune can help with that)...

nice ride... I just got the same car this past Saturday, black on black. Did some interior cleaning today and ordered up a K&N, new fog light bulbs to match the HID's and will be getting a tune ordered tomorrow from Tom.

What was the price on the car?

The price was 8500- 2gs for trade in (my sedan had some bugs that I didnt disclose to them, so they got a hunk of for that 2gs...) so I financed it at 6500.

While my Sedan looked sick, and drove nice (H&R Race Springs + KYB AGX's) I kept breaking stuff on the engine whenever I'd go to do regular maintenance (something I'd never had a problem with on any other car I've owned). I figured it had to do with the fact that it was an 8 y/o car, so i got rid of it for something newer.

i think he was saying the car cost $8500 and he had $2000 for his trade. so he financed $6500. $8500 for a EAP SVT sounds pretty sweet to me, i got mine for $9700.
