51,000 miles

<img src="http://images.autotrader.com/images/2008/7/28/248/287/8023912996.248287469.IM1.02.565x421_A.562x421.jpg">

SUPERCHARGED ~205whp ~255hp Well Over $8000 invested. 2 sets of wheels, New tires...winter and summer, new brakes, Custom leather seat covers, Runs Flawless, Looks Great, meticulously maintained. 5 spd. Make an offer! Audio Mods Elemental Designs SQ10 side mount enclosed subwoofer, Alpine amp Body Mods Monsterknob shift knob, Megan short shifter, OBX pedals, Vertex Racing Fog Lights, Silverstar Ultras, S2k Antenna, chrome turn bulbs, 30% tint, Figure LLC Grills, Bosch ICON wipers, leather interior, redline leather shift/brake boots, LED interior dome lights, weathertech window deflectors, Oznium full LED red third brake light, LED plate and parking lights Power Mods Supercharged TRD Supercharged, TRD exhaust, Forge 007P BPV, ZPI 9 lb. supercharger pulley Suspension Mods DC Sports front strut bar, Progress rear sway bar, Tein H-techs lowering springs Wheel and Tire black calipers, SSW S007 eternity wheels, BF-G G-force rubber, Axxis Ultimate brake pads (part metallic, so they will make a little noise until warmed up)-almost new. I am the only owner. The car has been overwashed and overwaxed. There is, however, some flaws. A small scrape in the rear window tint. Some scrapes in the left corner of the rear bumper from another car. Rock chips on the hood and especially front bumper. There are also some swirl marks and a couple marks from a polisher also on the rear bumper. Finally, there is a minor door ding. The car still looks great when washed up! I just want to disclose everything. There is also a rear rattle when you hit bumps. I'm not sure what it is, but the suspension seems to be acting normal. Never raced or tracked, although it would make a perfect Autocross vehicle. Come see it! Whoever purchases this car will truly enjoy their drive home.

This car looks nice. Sweet mods but the car looks like it has 0% tint. If your considering buying it I would try to get it down to $12,000 with 51k miles.

Never been raced or tracked, sure... but it doesn't say anything about not driving it hard or spirited driving.

It's aftermarket f/i. You know he was having some fun with it. It may or may not have suffered from those fun runs. Your call.

I would pass in general.

If your interested find out how long it's had f/i and get a compression test done. I also would run a carfax and just know when your dealing with f/i you it must be maintained.

thanks 4 the input , I think I might just get a new car for once, or just a very low mileage used...

personally i woud always buy a used car. Right when you take a new car off the lot you lose a ton of money. TC is a good way to go, i'm sure if you look around you'll find one with low miles and what you want.

if its trd s/C (which it prob is w/those numbers) then i would go for it its still under factory warranty and either way 51k isnt much (and if it is a trd s/c toyota says the life is approx 100k miles before a rebuild) so itll be a car thats good on gas (if you can stay off it lol) and its a snazzy lookin lil car..go for it!! :)

compression test it, find out EXACTLY how many miles the S/C has on it, check and make sure he did it the right way, I hope he has some sort of wideband or something!

If you know what to look for, and how to look for it, you could find out if its been riden hard and put away wet or not.

TRD S/C are hard to come by, dont forget.

As always, fight for a lower price.
