I have a chance at a '02 5spd with ONLY 8500 miles. I have been calling around and have found no bad info from the dealer about this particular car. I have not run the CARFAX as yet.

Ok the bad things I do know about the car, it has a body kit installed that my 13 year old could have installed better, the 4 shock air ride kit drains the battery, there is a HUGE wing on the trunk, the front fenders have slight damage in the arc from the tires hitting the edges. The outside is a 8 while the inside (from what I have seen) is a 10. The dealer wants $21,900, book is $24k+ and I think I can get a lower price.

I will be driving the car today and wanted to see what do you guys think??

That sounds like a horror story waiting to happen. Who knows what else is wrong with the car besides all those things. IMO I would find a decent one.

Wouldn't be that hard to fix back to stock, but not for that price. Maybe $18K max.

Well, did you get a chance to test drive the car and what did you think?

you forgot one headlight has a crack in it, the engine cover is painted a hideous silver, and those WHACK ass tail light covers. Whoever was the original owner of this car needs to be shot.
