    Sorry to disturb some by placing this ad here...

    I have for sale a 1996 850R fully loaded (all options) and the following
    after-market parts:

    IPD Motronics Upgrade
    Borla Stainless Steel High-Flow Exhaust
    K&B Air Filter
    Bilstein rear shocks

    The car is extremely fast (1/4 mile in the low to mid 14's at over 100MPH
    trap speed) and very, very fun to drive.

    I will be up front and note that it has two issues that may need addressing:

    1) Clearcoat on top and trunk is peeling off. There is absolutely *zero*
    rust on top or underbody. I drove my 4x4 Jeep in the winter.
    2) Dealer says rear engine seal is leaking oil (~$1000)

    Otherwise it drives beautifully and has no mechnical problems. The
    engine/turbo/transmission have never had any non-routine maintenance work
    done and do not need any work done at the present time. I have maintenance
    records for timing belt, oil changes, etc. I only used Mobil 1 synthetic
    with Mobil 1 filter, let the turbo warm up before driving it
    enthusiastically, let the turbo cool down before shutting off engine, etc.
    This car's MSRP was about $40K in *1996* and was one of the highest
    performing sedans in its day. With the Motronics upgrade, Borla, etc. it is
    still one of the fastest sedans around and will more than keep up with G35,
    330i, TL, etc.

    KBB Private Party Value (fair condition) is $6,285. First $4,900 takes it.

    Please contact at konkan at gmail dot com. Car is located in Indianapolis,
    Indiana. Thanks.

    "Fair" for KBB is defined as, ""Fair" condition means that the vehicle has
    some mechanical or cosmetic defects and needs servicing but is still in
    reasonable running condition. This vehicle has a clean title history , the
    paint, body and/or interior need work performed by a professional. The tires
    may need to be replaced. There may be some repairable rust damage."

    That's a reasonable description of my car. In fact, I think my vehicle is in
    "great" running condition. KBB price for "good" is $7,120.

    Or the mileage. But you did put location, which puts
    you way way ahead of most "for sale" posts I see on
