you may want to sit and think about why the car has been bought and sold 4 times.... it probably has some serious fucking issues.

i own a rebuilt title car and have never had the first problem with it.
This car wasn't built right and you can tell

First the damn fenders wasn't even trimed in.
Second the firewall wasn't even painted to match.
Airbag looks like shit.
I vote hell no...

Any lights on in the dash?
Have you drove the car? any noticable problems?

Well honestly the colors don't even match up and the airbag is an issue. What if you crash and there's no airbag in there?

Find a different one.

yeah your right.. i had planned on replacing the airbag (they are plentiful) and pulling the engine and having the engine bay painted.. you guys are right though.. i guess the search continues..

I think I figured it out..that car started it's life as a PWP type-s which explains the tan interior and white engine bay..It must of been painted at some point to blue

8k and thats the most if i was you give for this car you can fix about all that shit for 2 g. The crsx store has a set of used bags for i think 6-7. offer 8 then walk away. and give you money to get it painted and fix what else is wrong with it.
so for 8k i should do it?? the bags should be less than 600 right?? i know when i wrecked my eclipse it was $60 bucks to replace both lol
