Other Comments (amount of time in the market, successful negotiating tactics, words of advice, pictures, etc.):

I was in the market for a while. Was looking for something in blue or red with a manual. Other options weren't too important. Budget was about $15k. Seller did a PPI for me which alerted me to a few issues - leaking valve cover gasket and diff pinion seal. I figured at $11k I could put the extra $4k into making it tip top, and I'd still be in good shape for the year and miles. I'm in the process of rebuilding the VANOS and doing an Inspection II because he didn't have complete documentation. Very happy with the car after one week. Can't wait to see what it's like when it's running the way it should.
