I've never owned a supercar. When I do I want to drive it. That means hotels, restaurants, Walmart, etc. At a restaurant, do you let valet park it? At a hotel, do they let you park in the front driveway? Or, do you just park in a typical spot you'd park any nice car which may be out a bit? I understand about being able to open the door far enough to get in. Is a typical house garage wide enough? My space is only the width of a one car garage door because of cabinets but that can be modified if need be.

The 05's are slightly less $$$ but do they have issues compared to 06's, each in the 10-15k mile range?

I found something like these a while ago. "Wire me deposit and I'll ship to you for inspection".
If somebody is bored, have fun.

I've seen the other colors. Now I'd like to see these before I commit to one.
Thanks,

None, same cars (ignoring SUPER early handful of cars). Only minor differences, some giving the nod to 05 (rad screen up front, billet control arms), 06 has heritage paint, and clam shell springs. Search will give you the other differences, not coming to my mind.

The CarFax certainly has its challenges....looks like they've had it almost 3 years. Are they giving you a big discount? If not, the Marshall Goldman one is got virtually the same ask.

A friend of mine works at Park Place Motors in Bellevue WA. They sold a white w/blue in October to somebody in MT. Wonder if it's the same guy. Is the one you're talking about for sale? Might be worthwhile to go there and look at the Tungsten one on eBay and this one.

Virtually same car. Very minor, mostly cosmetic differences but from a drivetrain and reliability perspective, I'd call them identical.

I inquired about this car back in May last year. They were asking $270k back then. I believe the person I talked with told me it had some bubbling under the paint near the stripe but I may be mixing that part up with another White/Blue.

No, the only Montana car I know of is the Tungsten one.

Splitting hairs...……..
2005 Vin 1,000 to end of 2005 WERE the best cars overall quality fit and finish with the ORIGINAL build team.
2006 carry over the same but finish started to fall off with the project ending and PINK SLIPS coming.
06 plus, generic control arms , less drama as early 05 .
Its really a toss up. Theres not one car you say STAY AWAY as we drove 2005 / vin 360 around the world almost......
13,000 plus miles in in 40 days driving .
They are all bullet proof.
IMHO, If your driving and mean driving 5 10 20,000 miles a year get an early 2006, The parts are all generic at that point.
Drive on baby!

Cheap and GT together to me sounds like a reason to run away
