PPI has come back mostly as expected. Rear wing needs repair, owner mentioned this, the scuff on the dashboard are pictured, small crack on the wood trim by the e brake, and minor scuff by the ignition. Front bumper has scrapes on the skirt, and shop says that part has been repainted, one small blemish on the exterior rear pillar area. Overall car checks out pretty darn well.

DME Report:
ENGINE ECU REV REPORT: Ignition ranges 1: 2468/693.4hr
Ignition ranges 2: 11 / 651.4hr Operating hours: 706.3

Little rough.

Not sure I like that particular car.


Just my opinion though (which means nothing).

Not to my liking either. How much are they asking?

I bought my 2003 X50, sticker was over 160K new, with 27K miles for 40K. It is a tip and what I wanted. GT2 nose, car is lowered, sport exhaust all from factory. Original owners have some serious cash and paid for what they wanted. The car was totally perfect when I purchased, and still is. The point is, buy what you like, at the price point you are willing to pay. Figure every year to spend a few bucks on tires, brakes and maintenance. I drive my car and have an area where I can really open it up on turns, hills and straights. Just what the car enjoys and so do I. Never abuse, but enjoy the use.

I have a deposit in at $59k, will be about $65k after I get the car shipped here and spoiler fixed. Considering walking away, thoughts?

Sounds like you got an absolute steal for that car!

Rough? Not to my liking? What the ****, are there many cars out there which don't have those very minor blemishes? Where do you find them?

Doesn't seem rough at all to me based on your description. I am partial to that fantastic color combo, and even has the wood trim which I love.

Only you can make the right decision, but my word of caution is, not many cars out there at all that don't have a scuff or two or a rock chip or something, if that's what bothers you.

The wood and brown interior is a personal preference thing. I have heard many disparaging it, but personally, I like it also! I have dark burl wood in mine BUT I also have carbon fiber that I swap out when I feel like a change. The scuffs etc. If they are not there now they will be if you drive the car. Comes with the territory. The can be buffed out pretty well though. So long all mechanicals work out and you like the color combo, go for it!

Not bad.. The seats and carpet look great to outstanding. The scratch on the dash can be repaired by a good leather shop!
The rear windshield wiper area is a "right of Passage" with these cars. I can't tell you how many I have seen repaired!! I would bet 1 in 2 cars get repainted blended 1/4 panels or fuzzed in.. How are the rear taillights? Cracked mounting flanges?
Air bag is typical! Nice car..

i'm not sure i've ever seen a "rougher" looking 20k mile car. i wouldn't buy that car for 59k in any scenario. GL, if that's what you want.

For 20k “it’s been ran hard and put away wet”
with that said it wouldn’t take much to bring it back looking good
