I think true DE's are '97 but some of the parts got put on '98s? Beautiful car, but I think they're asking way too much. All it takes is one crazy person with money who wants that car in that condition, though.
I was browsing around on CL looking for something interesting and came across a low-mileage ginster mk3 DE. Somebody else might find it interesting; I got excited over the pics for a few minutes.
Not sure if the steering wheel/other stuff is legit. I thought they had matching colored stitches. Either way it's an interesting car.
