Holy smokes! Where did you get one with only 2100 miles? Pics or it never happened

There is absolutely no better or worse time to mod. Whether it be 100 miles or 100,000 miles. Start wrenchin' at it buddy!!

awesome. i will totally put some pictures up when i get off work. the only pic i have of the odo right now is 4 mb so thats not going to work. the bad part is im in the last 2 months of a deployment so i have to wait till i get home to drive it. patience is a virtue, and it will be very worth it. i found it on autotrader.com. been looking for the last 6 months. prob got one of the more rare ones around. 2006 quicksilver red leather 6 sp. i got one of 104 i cant wait to get home. and i know my wife will not let me drive it first thing when i get home seeing how i have not seen her in 12months.

24k even with a 2 year bumper to bumper. Got the sales tax kicked cause its not gonna be reg in state i found it. My wife went and bought it and after the transaction was said and done she told them how rare that color combo is. The guy was a little bummed based on the $$ he could have made but over all was happy it was going to a vet who is going to actually drive the car. I'll be safe. patriot missles and apache attack helicopters. Thank you though

2100? Dang.

Even with those low miles, I'm cringing at the 24k price tag. It's still a 9ish year old car.

Current: MGW-p, H-pipe, SS OTRCAI, Lovell rear springs, Eliminator shocks and Pioneer AVH-P3300BT, JBA LTs+catless mids, Drilled/Slotted rotors, Kooks Afterburners, catch can & Tune Next: ??? Wish list: Intake & TB, modest cam, UDP, gears

Nice find ..... Looks like from the pics, the car already has a shifter mod (looks like a Lou's short shifter....definitely not stock). If you could get some engine pics there might be more mods that you or the dealer don't know about (doubtful with 2100 on the clock but if the shifter was modded, then what else?).
