History
Purchased in June 2017 with 73,000 miles in decent condition. Have done a ton of detailing, touch up paint, etc. since. Also changed all fluids and recharged a/c. Had to replace MAF, but otherwise car has been a dream. Prior owner didn't drive the car much. But since I've had it, it has run better and better and better. In 2018 I installed a Pioneer head unit so I now have bluetooth, an aux input, and the ability to play CDs, whenever I'm in a twentieth century frame of mind.

Update January 2021:
Car continues to run better and better. I've done a lot of long-range driving, initially between Redding, CA and San Francisco for many weekend trips. In the summer of 2019 I drove it home, across country, to Boston, MA where I live. Aside from the MAF sensor, I've not done any real repairs. This car has been super-reliable.

Modifications

Interior
A little Connolly Hide Food from time to time and the leather stays nice and pliable.
Audio
Pioneer head unit with Bluetooth. I spent about $120 and it was money well spent.
Lighting
LEDs for interior lights -- it's so bright I feel like I'm on stage, hehe.
Wheel and Tire
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3. These are very good, sporty tires which also run very smoothly on the highway. I highly recommend.
