It's funny how many people think that an IMSB replacement is a one and done deal...Needs to be done again unless it's the "Solution".
Truly a good looking car!

Eh...All the bling (very shiny! it does look great) and little mods, and it's still got cloudy, yellowed headlights... for such a simple/affordable fix, I find it somewhat shocking that someone looking to sell a car (especially one that appeals to OCD types such as us) would leave such a glaring deficiency unattended to. Another big minus is no full leather. I think right around $20k is a fair price

The headlights arenít cloudy in the flesh. May just be the photos. I did the 3M polish kit on them last year.

Hmmm... strange - they sure look yellow and cloudy in the photo's - maybe bad lighting? I just looked again - did he have the lights on? It looks like they're plain halogens - which would have that yellowish incandescent color...

Folks, this is a factory aero car with good service history. That's a game changer for the deep pocket bidders. I predict this one may hit close to $30K.

Reserve not met...modded 996’s don’t always do that great there. It’s a nice car. I think the wheels and mods scare away the old guys with all the money.
it would be a really good deal at 23k. But could see it getting higher easily.

I took the pics early in the morning and the sun was hitting the front of the car directly. And they are halogens, not litronics. Just ran out to the garage and took this. May be a better representation.

Only mods are the wheels and the clear side markers. Oh, and I have the old pumpkins in a box for the next owner.

I mean no disrespect, but this car is as close to factory original as it gets. The Aero kit is factory. This is NOT a mod. The only things that I can see that are changed out are the wheels and radio which most collectors don't care about. Of course, if Bash Hat has the original wheels, that would be a plus for the auction.
