Considering the book for the car is $3000 for excellent/good condition, would you consider my offer of $2300, or is that too low for you? I'm really interested in it.

Re: (cmurphy2266)

that is a reasonable offer, although regardless of the fact that the "book value" is 3000, finding an original non swapped t5m for 2300 isnt that easy, im still checking the car out, i took it to the track and i started leaking gear fluid, i know for a fact that one axle seal is gone, didnt make any noises tho, got it towed home from NH and havent looked at it yet, nor driven it, but if worst comes to worst i have an entire 96 850 manual parts car, just in case something went in the tranny (i dont think anythings wrong), but im checking it out tuesday on my day off, doing the axle seals and filling it up and hoping for the best, but all in all id have to get around 2700 for it, only because of all the money ive dumped into this car in the past 2 years, it makes me sick <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Sorry to be off topic, but where did you get the 3" turbo back?

Re: (greekone)

it not full 3 inch but it is for the most part, its 3 inch till about a foot and a half behind the muffler, but nevertheless it made a huge difference, its an obx i got it off ebay, people say negative things about them, idk why it worked and fit awesome for me, i only paid 400 off ebay and they give you 2 downpipes, one for angle flange and one for straight flange, i sold the one i didnt need for 150 so your only really paying 250, great buy if you ask me

I thought the OBX dp was 3" and the exhaust was 2.5"?

is the headliner faux cheetah fur? or actual cheetah? lol in all seriousness great looking example of a t5m which you rarely come by around here. i paid 2600 for my 96 850 manual so 2700 isnt a bad deal at all. gl with the sale
