I bought the Car with 42K Miles. I had a one car garage and wanted one car to play with (So I did not have to leave the other car out of the garage). It has been garage kept since I bought it.
After 3-4K miles, I started modding this one very carefully. I drove it stock for a goo d while and decided to add this and that. I am selling because I bought a new house, need a truck and want to start a heavy project (real fast car, not streetable). This car is the best of all worlds. Fast, loaded (leather power etc.), nice looking and great stereo system. Has been garage kept from day one of my purchasing it.
It currently has 53K miles. It is sitting in a garage and I carpool to work daily. I do not have a lot of time to drive it much less work on it as I used to. The house repairs and upgrades are a new priority. All parts were new upon purchase and install unless noted below. I will throw in the stock exhaust as well as various stock parts from it. The web links are the actual installs on the car (My web site is to share my work with others).
A FMIC was my last goal but since I am selling it I do not want to add anymore parts. A FMIC would make this car much faster since everything else is there. I left the stock wheels on it and hid everything (gauges, SAFC, etc.) out of sight so this car looks stock on the road. Even the 3" RSR exhaust is the quietest full 3" I have ever heard (not to mention a hard exhaust to find). You would have to hear it to believe it :)

Upgraded Stereo (added bonus)
The Previous owner had an upgraded stereo professionally.
The original stereo components were kept and are boxed up and included with the car.
The stereo was professionally installed by Myer-Emco (http://www.myer-emco.com).
All components were hidden as much as possible. Amps are under the seat and one attached
to the seatback in the trunk. Subwoofer box is removable, to maximize trunk space.
A had all factory stereo components saved so that you can re-install (or sell) them if desired.
