Audio system was updated:
Alpine 103bt headunit + KTP-445

2 - 8” rockford Punch powered by a JL Audio e1200 (small box is pressure fit into rear hatch area, carpet is intact)

This car is not perfect. Here are the items that still need attention:
- Rear wiper/defrost not working
- Center stack needs some light bulbs replaced, PO did all of the bulbs in the cluster.
- PO swapped out the tach for a working one and it hasn't read right beyond idle (about 1K RPM too low)...maybe the dip switches are set wrong?
- A/C will need to be gone through..definitely needs a charge and seals
- Central locking / alarm inoperative
- Driver's door lock inoperative
- Ignition switch is still flaky. Sometimes takes a few tries to engage the starter, but ALWAYS starts
Have many extra parts that I will throw in as part of the sale.
I also have an extra set of Speedline wheels available ($200) that would make a great set of winter wheels
Cosmetically, the paint shines nicely for it's age and appears to be original with the exception of the passenger front fender. It presents nicely, but does have dings, scratches, and a few small dents, the worst of which is the hood. The driver's side front bumper cover is torn (as shown in the pics) and the front is scuffed by the license plate mount (also shown in the pics). If I was keeping this car, I would find a B4 hood, lights, and bumper cover and call it a day.
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves on the interior.
Overall, this car would make a GREAT DD RIGHT NOW. Power windows, seats, sunroof, gauges (except tach reading incorrectly), CC all function as they should. The car drives good and sounds even better with the Scorpion exhaust. The power delivery is smooth and linear right up to redline with no hesitation / steppedness that is sometimes common with the 7A.
The car is located in Northern NJ 30 minutes from NYC.
