I bought this car yesterday mostly to teach my wife how to drive a manual. It’s a pretty cool car for the price though. It needs some tlc but it’s overall in nice shape.
My car’s twin
mind posting mileage and how muchyou paid
mine is an 08 redline just like yours (color) and had 111,000 miles and I bought it for $5500
This is a redline, it says Turbo there also, just not a great picture. It has 142,000 miles and it cost me $4400. Its in pretty decent shape overall. It really needs a good wash/clay/cut/polish/wax. There is a dent on the hood and another on the trunk lid creases that won't be fixable, but it will be a solid 10 yard car.Only difference is mine is a redline and has the rear spoiler
congrats you’ll love how it handles !!
Oh I see your title says yours is a redline. - maybe a different year than mine because mine says turbo on the back bumper where yours says sky
The redline is turbo 2.0 liter snd the base model is a 2.4 liter -
The biggest reason I got this was because last Friday I got this (2021 Lotus Evora GT). Drove it from Seattle to Boise, fun times!Good for you. Welcome to the owners club & forum.
"to teach my wife how.... to drive a manual." Hmmm
Well depending on how much usage the previous owner did
teaching his... wife how to drive a manual too you might want to
check on new clutch, pressure plate prices just say'n.
Looks good. There are things to look for on our gem.
The search feature will help with some owner questions
you might have- but if you run into trouble with something
ask away- lot of knowledge here by many forum members.
Be prepared for the attention factor this car might bring to disrupt
your teaching of the wife, as she power shifts up through
the gear changes like Louis Hamilton would might cause- IT will
happen on any given day. Gas fill ups. Stop lights. Parking lot or
the odd neighbor who has noticed something new- well sort of
new looking to them in your drive way. Co-workers will think
you or the wife have gotten a big raise somehow to afford this
sharp sports car you now own.
After things settle over the new excitement for you two will be
the road trip adventure- day long cruise, the weekend get way to
the B&B location of her choice, the smile that will be upon your
faces- what we owners call permagrin here. It can make you both
feel and look younger too just say'n. Your wife just went- wait what?
Younger I'm all in on that line of thinking. One of our other newest
members just had this same experience. After their first real test
drive together- her words here, " We're never getting rid of this thing".
First impressions do matter when the wife is involved but you don't
have to go on my advice here.
Stay safe among the masses out there. This car sits low, and sometimes
can not be seen by other drivers in their mirrors. You can scrape the nose
looks like that has happened all ready in one of your photos. Happens.
Enjoy the smiles for miles- it can be addicting not that I would know
anything about that. And I film my adventures too.. for You-Tube.
Gorgeous ride, dude! These cars were so underestimated and one of GM's best sports cars!
