    I'D BUY IT!... for about $500, its pretty ricey, but if you like it go for it, as far as burning oil, its not a very big deal really, mine burned oil, but i switched to a heavier oil and it doesnt burn nearly as much.

    the body kit needs to go the tail lights need to go or get blacked out and that stupid middle fin needs to go as well, the dual exhaust is kinda cool but it sucks your hp id take that crap off too

    $1500.

    there isn't anything on there that i would want. unless the interior is clean and the engine is strong, it's just another riced out mexi piece of shit. do you have the link to the ad?

    No way in hell. If that car goes for 2200, then I need to re-evaluate what I consider a nice looking car.

    if YOU like it, then buy it.

    nobody on here really likes body kits and such. but we aren't buying it. it only depends on what you like. if you act based on opinions of a forum, then something is wrong. be your own person. if you like it, buy it. and roll that car with pride.

    Yeah, my only concern is that the motor isn't in great shape if it has 65,000 miles on it but is burning oil? I wouldn't know the first thing to
    do about that.. Considering I would want it to be running fine so i could take it for trips 2+ hours you know?

    -Basically my concern is that he's railed on the car, and the engine isn't in good shape.. Who knows though, maybe if it's for sale long enough I could get it checked out? And if it turned out to be a minor thing I would get it...

    As for now, I guess I wont really consider it.
    -Thanks for your thoughts :)

    honda engines are a dime a dozen.
    especially if its still a dseries.

    id offer him about 12 to 1500 if it were me.
    you can easily get another d series for a couple hundred.

    but having it checked by a trusted technician is always a fucking brilliant idea. stick with that one.
