for sale: 300d in College Station, Texas

I bought this from a friend of mine who was the original owner. Love the car but I have too many on the drive way. It is going to the detailer Saturday morning to get the carpets shampooed and the paint buffed/waxed.

The specs:

-Light Blue
-Beige interior
-192K, I bought it with 181 in July
-Auto - he had it rebuild a few years ago, shifts great.
-a/c and heater both work fine
-aftermarket radio, but I have the original
-sunroof
-power every thing
-newish Michelin's
-tinted windows


Things i fixed replaced:

-new motor mounts
-new tranny mount
-new engine shocks
-newish oil/air/fuel/power steering filters
-just changed the oil - good for another 5k
-just adjusted the valves
-new front rotors/pads/wear sensors
-new oil and fuel caps
-new tranny fluid and filter

the Bad

-front diver seat has the famous broken spring
-both front seats are worn, but very comfortable
-some of the interior trim is a bit warn, see pics
-paint is thing but shiny, too many years in the Texas sun
-cruise control doesn't work, probably need a module, I just never cared enough
-I need to reattach the read bumper center rubber trim, may or may not get to that.

This is great driver, heck I have put 11K on it since July 1st and drive it 400 miles a week at least. Get about 22~24 mpg, so right in line with the factory. People claiming 30 MPG are trying to sell something.

I be in Austin Saturday morning and Monday afternoon if you want to see it, other wise it is in College Station. Price is negotiable, but I'm not giving it away. If you want a dependable daily driver this is the one. I'll post up better pics later.
