So Im going to be stationed in Korea in a few months and to be honest, I just feel like I would get arrested driving this thing over there. I also don't really feel like storing it for a year. My option then is to put her up for sale.

I bought the car in Dallas, TX in Sept of 2011 with 112,000 miles on the clock.. When I got it, it was starting to have the infamous SMG issue. I drove it for 6K miles before it got too bad. It was replaced to the tune of 3700. Since then, it has driven like a champ and never a problem with the trans. It should last at least another 50k miles. Just before I bought the car, the prior owner had replaced the Clutch and flywheel as well as all spark plugs and coils. A window regulator was replaced at this time as well. I have receipts for all work done in the last 3 years. Battery is a year and a half old and the starter was replaced in July of 2012.

Now for the upgrades. The interior color was not what I wanted so i pulled all of the offending colored panels and sanded them down and laid a coat of matte red paint on them. It turned out pretty damn well from wheat everyone tells me. I have a CF hood and blacked out kidney and fender grills on the car and I had the stock wheels powdercoated DuPont flat black. I replaced all of the pads and rotors at about 128K miles with stoptech units as well as upgraded to stainless braided lines. I installed TC Kline Aluminum/Delrin FCAB's at about 135K miles and Water pump was replaced at 136K miles and I replaced the clutch fan with a Spal unit that keeps the temps below the halfway mark even on the 105+ degree days in Albuquerque. I swapped out the flex disc because it looked a little worn and had the RTAB's replaced with the shimmed out versions. I replaced all of the subframe bushings with Powerflex units. and replaced the Diff bushings out with Turner solid Aluminum bushings. The old Diff had a leaky rear pinion seal so I replaced it with a unit with less than 50K miles. That was about 5K miles ago. I didn't like the rasp so I replaced section 1 with a CPI Rasp Terminator. And to add icing to the cake, less than 500 miles ago I threw on a set of TC Kline racing coilovers and camber/caster plates. The fronts are 2 way adjustable and the rear are single adjustable. I also have Turner rear shock tower reinforcement plates.

I'm sure I am forgetting something. Anyway, I have replaced anything when it breaks or is about to break and upgraded what I felt was needed to take this car to the next level. I didn't skimp on the quality of parts either. This is a car I have treated like a queen. The exterior is about what you would expect from a car with 137k miles. This car runs like a champ.

As for the price. Im asking 14k. Shoot me a message if you are interested and lets make a deal.
