Sorry, 330, 5 speed, 150k

$5600 from private seller.

It has the 3 spoke wheel, but not the thigh supports on the seats. How else to tell if it has the M sport. I have no idea if those are the original wheels.

I was looking for a M3, but cheaped out in the end. This is a test to see if the vert will work as a DD, then maybe go get an M.

M tech front bumper soon to be ordered. Ordered springs and pins to fix the little covers when the top is down, an OEM "M" shift knob (I don't care for the stock one) and some OEM floor mats.

It had a P0128 code when I test drove it, new thermostat went in last night (with much thanks to this forum for the diagnostics found with a quick search).

Now I just need warmer weather, a bit chilly this morning!

Yes, this one is the garage queen 85,000 of sunny days only

Did you do anything other than the thermostat, cooling system will likely need attention at 150K...

Had to do Tstat to pass emissions, it was only getting to ~86C, just bought an autozone cheapy.

Agreed, did all that to my sedan. Needs complete cooling system, upgraded water pump, idler/tensioner, valve cover gasket, control arm bushings......

Busy next few weekends!

Congrats on the new vert. It looks nice!

And just in case you missed seeing it and would like one, the post right next to your's by CK325 says he has a silver hardtop for sale, and he's even fairly close to you in Philadelphia. The hardtop's are a nice option, look great, and are really nice especially for the winter months. I love mine.

And the #1 must have option if your vert didn't already come with it, is to get the rear seat factory windscreen.

Good luck with your mods and maintenance updates.

Thanks! I saw the hard top, and his location, but don't have the cash right now. Also have a garage for the 330 and a Suburban to drive when weather is bad winter.

I am looking for a windscreen, but thought I might be able to get a better deal mid-winter for next season. I agree that is a must have

If you go cheap now, waiting for mid-winter and next season, then you're gonna miss a lot of fall and early winter this year with that windscreen. Trust me, there is no better options money spent than on that windscreen. Dig now, you'll be glad you did in less than a month.

Nice ride, the 3 spoke steering wheel and the m-tech wheels indicate it likely has the sport package. That's how mine was, anyway. I recently added Beyern wheels and new Michelin PS2's.
