looks great. You always take a risk with those ebay things, but I'd feel better assured considering the seller is a car dealer and the amount of pics they took.
BTW nothing wrong with the automatic if you not planning pn being a drag racer

I guess it's a good deal because it retails for over 14k, but it is a 2000 and it's not under warranty.

I have a 2000, and never had a major problem with it, but the 2000 model is riddled with little imperfections, and not to mention the lift bolt issue.

The 2000 model had an issue with the lift bolts being somewhat brittle. Once they break or wear to a certain point, your car may not be able to engage lift.

My 2000 is almost at 75k miles, and still has its factory lift bolts so...

The GT has more gears, which are also shorter.

The GTS has four tall gears, and because of that, once it shifts, it drops low into the powerband. You can't land in lift in an auto GTS.

ok the guy said he had it on his lot and was asking 15,900. i got approved for 15,750 on the loan when i told them the year, options, vin, etc. that's sayin something right there. he said the reason he sold it for 10,995 is because they have a policy... if a car sits for 60 days they sell it at the exact wholesale value. i guess i was just lucky to have come across that car within two hours of when it was listed. i'm taking out a loan of 12k to cover the car and tax/title/license. and i'm ordering the WW kit from EC as soon as the car arrives. i'm having it shipped because they're gonna do it for $395. cool
