I leased this car new in 1999 and it was so great I bought it at lease end in 2002.
Now 2012 and all I have done is add a front strut brace (highly recommended and simple to install) and the car is still the best I have owned.
Steel Grey, chrome package, with chrome wheels is unbelievable.
I store it in the winter. Never seen snow, barely seen rain. 30k miles. And i drive it hard, run it to rev limiter regularly, etc.
It's like driving a go-cart, not for all but for enthusiasts really great.
Fun to drive, amazing exhaust note and the engine runs easy at 4k and will just hang there between shifts.
Even today, as 12 year old car, people stop and look and ask.
Timeless for sure.
