Cant really tell, need more Upclose pictures, Starlight has like glittery speckles in it, have a close look when you go view it, Phantom Black is just black no speckles

I've seen this car and driven it. It has a metallic flake in the paint. I guess that makes it Starlight. It looks very sharp. Jimmy certainly seems like a good guy. He was very knowledgeable and generous with his time. He also engaged my wife in conversation. She's a decision-maker as well and it seems like a lot of car salesmen seem to forget that.

I test drove it about a week ago. I guess for the miles it's a great price but I didn't look much into what issues it may or may not have mechanically. I do know the front clam has been repainted and does not have the starshield, the headlights have some sort of clear coat mess on them, and there is a quarter-sized chip in a corner by the area of the driver's-side door. Also you could consider the rear tires as "slicks" as in it needs tires badly. I did however drive it in about twenty degree weather and it was very solid all around.

MOST LIKELY going to be Starlight. There were a few phantom cars that snuck into 05...
Only (2) Phantom Blacks were brought in at the end of '05. One had biscuit interior which is now for sale and the other has red which was sold originally by HRM then the customer moved to CA onlly to sell it back east.
