Sold it yesterday for $4k with 160k miles. It was the easiest car to work on minor repairs -alternator, ac compressor, radiator etc. though, I wasn’t brave enough to tackle the timing belt(and can seal leaks) so I sold it and bought an SUV. Thanks for everything guys(especially froggy with videos on youtube)!
Yesterday I waxed the IS for the first time since buying it over a week ago. Also cleaned the interior, wheels, engine bay, polished the surface rust off the exhaust, cleaned/installed new air filter, and cleaned the MAF sensor.
