2012 frozen silver 1 of 100

Paid 45k, with about 49000miles.
Carbon roof in great condition, pretty happy with the price, did what I could but took the dive.
Dealer is taking care of lots of maintenance, will have to do rod bearings however.

Dude I hope you're not paying 8500 for 2000$ worth of work.

Congrats on the car btw.

How bad was the front bumper? Hopefully the body shop do a good job on the frozen paint.

Why do you think you need to do RBs on a 2012 with only 50k miles?

Great looking car! With the front bumper, I think now would be the time to get the euro bumper without reflectors and without front plate bracket holes from IND and let the dealer paint and install it? lol

Whats normal? Most non-enthusiasts don't even warm up their engines and also think that higher RPM is bad for the car so they lug it around at 1000 RPM in 6th gear then go WOT. That shit messes up the bearings worse than that dood that hits redline after fully warmed up.
