+1, And more importantly that other buyer crap is way overused. The second I hear that I get jumpy and say ill wait and see if the other one comes through, and 9/10 times the car is still for sale a month later. I won't bother with it then since I know the seller is a liar.

This is business, get your emotions out of the way and get some money, don't screw up a good thing you've got going with greed.

PS, edit RICO is an law against Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations. Basically, dishonest financial crimes. Was made to target the mob. I'm saying your price is a racket.

I don't think Franklyn is raising the price out of greed... He just really doesn't want to sell his car, lol.

ken check out your local delaership.

the issue i was having with my car was since i am tucking rim all the allignments that attached to the rim werent working.


the bmw dealership uses the 5 little small holes (not the axle holes) to mount the alignment pads with.


Its pretty sweet and their lift is like brand new here in rochester.

Looks like a good trade to me. Exterior looks straight and rust free. Interior is easy to refurb. Just takes money. Honestly, I kind of like the bottlecaps...but then I'm old.

It looks like it is about to get the love it has been denied in the past. Looks good to me. I really like the black, but it is a challenge to keep clean. Those wheels are going to look great on her...IMO
