I don't understand your problem could you provide more detail. Is the satellite radio a factory unit? Is your other radio a factory unit? If so, you can't have both playing at the same time.

I would ask for service records and have an independent inspection done. A lower price doesn't necessarily mean a better value. Service is extremely important on these cars.

The sales tax on new cars in SC is technically not $300; it's 6% of the sales price with a $300 cap - so it is effectively $300. Now ask about our wonderful roads!

The German designed E85 was made in the good old USA by Americans in a German factory located in SC; so I guess it is a German/American hybrid.

If the owner didn't care enough about the appearance of his car I would be suspect of the mechanical condition as well. I would pass on this car.

Doubtful it will ever be considered a "Classic" in 10-15 years - there were just too many made. Maybe in 25-35 years though.
