Any chance of exchanging the dark jewel headlamps & corners for the factory stuff plus cash?
Why do you guys do that?
The man is trying to sell his (very nice) R the way IT IS

It's a simple question. If he wants to, he can, if not he'll say so. Simple as that. The car has been on the market for 45+ days, so I figured it wouldn't hurt. Besides, I've already been in touch with him via e-mail and he said he would have done this deal with me had he not already had the exact same deal going with someone local to him.

P.S. Be sure and add some salt to that foot for a little flavor because the man can do with his R what he wants. It's not up to you.

Of course he can do whatever he wants to, it's his car but they are a good selling point and if it were MY car I would leave them on.
Good luck with the sale whatever you do
