I think it would be a bit better had he spent as much time on the performance as he had on the looks.

He should have just left that damn body kit off. Or at least the rear clip anyway. What color are you going ot paint it if you get it? How much does he want for it?

Well he wants 5500. The only thing i care about is that the mileage is accurate and it doesn't make any noises.He clams it has 85k The last eclipse i checked had miles screwed back when i checked car fax. That was 95 GST for the same price as this one. Um i would definately take the rear off. ( i hope he still has stock rear bumper.) I won't paint it right away because painting is expensive and right now it wouldn't be im my budget since i have to pay for car and insurance. But if i would paint it i would paint it electric blue. If it would be a stcok eclipse i would have done some body work so maybe it's a good thing that it has some shit on it already because now i can just focus on performance. But no matter what that rear end is just ugly and it will come off if i get the car.
So do u guys know anything about that exhaust on the bottom?

OK, here's my thoughts.

1) The car's an Automatic
2) The car's not a turbo
3) That bodykit looks like a$$
4) Those taillights look like a$$
5) Drive it at night, I just removed the fancy chrome projector headlights from my car because they threw about as much light as a AA Maglite. So those headlights might suck.
6) The bodykit isn't even painted
7) The car's not a turbo
8) The car's an Automatic

But, those wheels are sick, it looks really awesome in the first picture before he/she defaced it with the bodykit.

$5500!!! Holy crap batman, you can buy a turbo version for that much cash. Especially if you want an Automatic, the automatic/turbos are hella cheap.

The fact that it has an AEM CAI means it ain't GST or a GSX.

That and the gauge cluster doesn't have a boost gauge.

But, the door handles match the color of the car, so it's a GS.

ya listen to what this guy says lol
ya it is a Gs
it's automatic because that better for me( i have explained this before Chicago,traffic,snow +inexperinced driver with manual= not one of the best situations) and it's just a pain to drive a stick in downtown chicago and traffic
As for turbo ya it's not turbo but at leats the insurance won't be as high

The automatic things obviously your decision, but if you're looking for an AT GS, don't pay the same price as a factory turbo car. IMO if you're looking at a GS you should be paying around $4K max. But that's just me.

Well yes i agree with u but there are expensive extras on this car like the LCD which i would sell, the rims, exhaust,ect.. I mean don't forget 5500 is just asking price that will def be bargained down if everything is ok with car.
ohh yeah and i forgot to say that CF hood was painted red so everything is the same except red hood.

The car altogether is not bad, just needs some of her old parts back, and a new paint job...she'd look pretty nice then
