      Awesome find. I have no idea why everyone is getting on your case. Maybe its jealousy, thats the only reason. It has 20,000 miles. Its basically new. The interior looks mint and untouched. The car looks mint and u paid $16,000. Its 10yrs old? YA who cares its looks like its a 2012. One of the very few left with low low miles. MY preferred colour of Jazz blue Id easily pay that much for one with that low miles. The car is basically new. Wicked.

      Hardly dude. I am def not jealous of someone who paid twice what I did for a basically identical car.

      Nice find! I agree with 87VR though. I bought my bmp for WAY less than that from an original owner with only 55k. The car was mint besides having to have the Aristos refinished. It also had the timing belt and w.p done. NOTHING was unoriginal. completely stock.

      On the other hand, I wanted the car sooo bad and probably would have paid close to what you did if I had my back against the wall.

      See, everyone is misunderstanding, you got one hell of a nice car, there is no doubt.

      But for real, get the timing belt components changed. Those gas charged tensioners don't last long, and even though it only has 20k on it, it is almost a decade old. It would definitely suck to have to put another 2k on top of what you've already paid..

      No worries man, like I said, you raised all valid points.. I appreciate the advice.. The price is what it is, too late now hahah. Just glad I've got it now. Will definitely be considering the timing belt in the near future.
