This car has been my baby for many years now, as I am the original owner. I bought the car in March of 2005 and have been having a great time with it and modifying ever since. It is a moderately modified car, with most of the modifications going into the brakes, suspension, clutch, and exterior cosmetics. The car rides slightly harsher than stock, but handles much, much better. The ride height is fairly low, but can be adjusted up or down by approximately 2″.

This 2004 V has some small paint issues which is to be expected for a 14 year old car. I believe that a professional clay bar and wax would make the exterior absolutely gorgeous again. I would rate the exterior as a 7 out of 10. The interior however is another story, as it absolutely immaculate and looks as good or better than when it came out of the showroom originally, with one exception, which is the driver seat leather cover has some wear and weathering, but is of average condition (no tears, rips, etc.). I would rate the overall interior as a 9.5 out of 10, with the driver seat rated a 7 out of 10.

To my knowledge, absolutely everything on this car works as it should, since there is only 42,570 miles on the car, everything is still in great condition and not worn out. Just last week I replaced the battery with a brand new EverStart Maxx battery from Wal-Mart. The previous battery lasted 9 years because I always kept the car on a battery tender.

There is a check engine light that remains on because the rear O2 sensors that came with the Kooks headers/highflow cats are not being properly read by the car’s computer. I have scanned the codes multiple times over the years and this is a non-issue, as it does not limit the capability of the car in any way. If this bothered you, the need for O2 sensors could be tuned out by a professional tuner.

I’m only reluctantly selling the car because I have a 2002 Corvette Z06 that is my main sports car and I just do not drive this car any more. It is too nice to set in a garage and never been seen. It is awesome to take long trips in as it is very comfortable and has tons of room. It performs great on track days and has even taken part in the Spectre 341 Challenge in Virginia City, Nevada.
