Sorry for the lame first post, but your car is awesome, and an incredible deal. If it was one month later I would be on a plane to Arkansas with a briefcase full of money. (okay maybe there are better ways to transfer $32k)

Any interest in selling it without the Monolites at an even lower price?

I wish you had this price in the beginning of september when I talked to you about it before! This car is an amazing deal at this price. I ended up buying brand new '06 for over $5000 off of msrp because I thought that was a better deal than the $37-$40 grand prices I was seeing then. Now only like 6 weeks later and this!!! Awesome awesome deal!!!! Someone buy this mans car!!! You will be glad you did!

You are right! I should have told you to hang tight; that I was prone to impulsive behaviors like this. Glad you found a car for yourself, enjoy!

You're right that's a lame post. Ask him if you can give him a deposit now and hold it for you for a month. The RACs are well worth it!

If you don't want the monolites, I'd be interested in them.

I've already contacted him on that, hope he's holding my place ;)

In an effort to manage expectations, the RACs are staying with the car unless something changes. Right now, I believe they add value to the overall package / offer, so they will remain affixed at 77lb/ft of torque to my car.

What type of driving has this car seen?
Track?
What service has it gone through?

TIA
Three track days and one autoX. The tires on it now have 100 miles on them (80 from the track).

4000 of the 13500 miles have been highway roadtrips (Chicago, STL, Dallas).

This has been mostly a weekend / nice day car to run through twisty roads.

1500 and 7500 mile checkup handled by Mid Rivers Lotus in St. Louis. The five or six other oil/filter changes we handled by myself.

Babak is correct, the early non LSS cars had two. My VIN is early - 170

Sorry for the delay is responding (traveling for work this week).

Bump for weekend traffic.

Some showing varying levels of interest, but the car is still available.
