Don't walk, run from this deal.

+1, but I'd consider it fair'ish deal because of the mods.

Gen 1 GT3 w/ clean title, no mechanical issues and 1/2 the miles can be had for ~$70k nowadays. A part of me can see the appeal/wisdom of buying an imperfect version straightaway for track use though, and not having to worry about aesthetic upkeep.

Guy from GMG had this to say about the RMS leak --

We have serviced dozes of cars with RMS leaks and repaired the issues even when dealers have not been able to.

There is no "problem" with the engine or car other than the pesky seal itself.

If you are considering a car that has a RMS leak its not a big deal especially if you can negotiate the price of repair into the price of the car, mostly all my customers have upgraded the clutch when having the RMS seal serviced.

Happy to help if you need some advice on the issue feel free to drop me a line.
