    If you have any major gripes or problems with the car, please air them for my benefit.


    There are 2-3 in the Midwest I am considering. I am literally minutes away from picking up the phone and start negotiating. All cars below are 6 speeds.

    black leather interior
    30k miles
    asking $21,999



    What I really want is a car with this interior:

    But it's hard to find one that has the 18" wheels AND the red interior. :down:



    Any thoughts on what color car is best? :wiggle:

    Black ftw. Always timeless. Yes it's a PITA to keep clean, but nothing looks as good as jet black after a nice wash and wax... :yum:

    I know it's a matter of taste, but Deffy, that red is atrocious holmes. :o

    Id get the black one HANDS down... Biggest complaint I hear is the TM, but even so... a wonderful car for the price... can't get that much power anywhere else for cheaper... I'm thinking of trading in The SS if i start to get too impatient waiting for the 09'

    My last car was black...and since I'm anal, keeping it clean is a full time job. But yes...it looks good.

    Yep, I am...and that's why I'm looking for a $23,000 car instead of a $46,000 car. :fawk: Weddings are 'spensive!

    why is the blue, with 13k more miles, asking $1k more than the red?

    they shouldn't have to be expensive

    however, nothing wrong with a 23k car though

    Because it is a 2006 instead of a 2005?

    I don't know. But that is my guess.

    All overpriced, IRS on those cars suck, 2006's have a TSB for shocks and you can find C5's in great condition all day for those prices now.

    I personally loved black/red interior but couldn't pull the trigger ebcause i'm too lazy to keep it clean. The blue is awesome and looks better in person. I like them all :dunno:

    and fyi...DO IT. I love my car
