    Finally got my V after wanting one since 2004

    Just picked up my V today, think I found a great car at a great price after looking at many and the financing never worked out right. Busted my butt the past 2 days to hold this one after 4 others tried to buy. Got a 2004 black with tan, it does have 111,000 but complete service receipts from day 1 and is as close to mint as you can get. It also included a set of factory rims with a new set of Blizzaks. All for 15,000. ill post pics this wknd and would love to meet up with other MN v's.

    Congrats. I'm hoping to pick one up here shortly w/105,xxx miles. The first thing on my agenda is the timing chain.

    Congrats!

    Amazes me how these cars are holding their value beyond 100k miles. Seems to be a testament to their build quality and to the care they've received.

    I think you're going to start seeing prices increase soon for immaculate, low-mileage editions...

    Def happening already, I am trying to buy one for 14k with 109k miles but the bank doesn't wanna do with that kinda miles. They said find a lower mileage 60-80k no problem to finance and of course those are up to 20k in price.

    Once again congrats on purchase. After I get my headers adjusted in we'll have to meet up and do a little LS6 vs. LS2 test. Actually I'm just looking for a baseline before and after I get the computer tuned.

    I got my loan thru a credit union and they didn't bat an eye for the miles or yr, got a great rate too

    sounds about right, but my credit isn't the greatest. I was mostly referring to price difference mentioned above. I would assume you have good/awesome credit tophat?

    Here's another one for sale locally forever and won't sell for $13.5 .... why... please why do people black out their lights with the cheap overspray? I bet those reverse lights are real functional now too. Big surprise that it has a salvage title too.

    Congrats on your score! Is this your ride? Would love to get together with anyone in the area. Carlson you need to get mod'd first because if you use me as your benchmark the after tune will be disappointing.

    heh, I'm not concerned about being able to walk anybody, more so just the before and after difference. Car currently has kooks long tubes, high flow cats and Magnaflow system, but not tuned.
