As discussed above just not something I would worry about. I think you have an excellent car and one of the best values in today’s market.

Very well bought, congratulations again.

Quick update. Here is a photo of the car with the correct lights in it in my driveway. I have gotten through almost the first tank of gas. I have installed all of the new suspension parts on the car and will do an update with that next week.

Congratulations!

I remember sitting in a new black over black 997 at a certain MoCo dealership back around 2005 and thinking “someday.” Enjoy it!
