VERY GOOD CHOICE

I looked for about three months and found my baby several states away, but all in all, I am rediculously satisfied.

BTW, if you find one, let me know, as i already have a head start on some of the tweeking and upgrading.

First of all, welcome to the forum!


Secondly... Excellent choice! I would have rather had the black interior leather as well... but the deal I got was too good to ignore B)
Plus if you live in a climate where you have broiling temperatures 3/4 of the year, as I do, the tan interior is probably better anyways...

I agree. Mine is Black with Tan leather. I origionally also wanted black on black but I live in New Orleans and we're living in the fire place 99% of the year like stated above. Not good for black leather. I settled for the tan. Besides, it's easier to find.

My brother lives in New Orleans. Anyway hold out if thats what you want, unless you find a tan one for cheap you can convert it all over to black if you wanted.

what are the best sites online to search for the car? and how hard would it be to swap an entire tan interior for a black interior

Well I look a ton for cars online trying to find one myself. If you don't mind ebay go here: Ebay Motors

Aside from there make sure to check out Autotrader tons of cars.

Good luck searching

I found my car on autotrader.com, but searched on ebay and cars.com

Because i would NEVER buy a car sight unseen i aranged a deposit with a few people, in which i sent them a hundred bucks to hold the car until i could come look at it. I spent $200 bucks doing this, but it saved me from buying a bad car twice!

I was set on a black/black 5spd. Beyond that i was flexible on year(93-99). Figure out what you deffinately want, and be patient. Switching tan to black is do-able but not very cost effective. They are out there, you just have to patient and in my case loose some sleep lookin!!!
