This car is sold as is. It has been my pride and joy since I first got into cars. The oil and filter has been changed on the dot every 3000-4000 miles using synthetic 5w/30 Amsoil. Personal records and pictures of oil changes are available upon request with service records as well.

Now for the honest issues:
-Rear tires a bit wide-Recommend changing to 215 /45 to avoid tire rubbing
Or roll fenders
-Two modest dents on roof from transportation to
Phoenix with no damage to the moon roof
-If they want, I can have the roof repaired or I can sell it to them as is and deduct
$500 for those cosmetic repairs.

Buy it now of $18,500
which includes 18" Focus RS Rims (unmounted w/o tires-$900 retail) that are
still in original Ford Racing box. Also includes spare Rota Wheel ($140 value)
