Plus they don't have any of the weatherstripping and may or may not have the spoiler/antenna holes you need.

In the long run, you're probably better off finding something local that's more ready to bolt on.
I remember seeing that somewhere on Facebook. Got a link?

I don't think you need them, but he also has a boat load of OEM fenders. If you're a spare parts hoarder you could probably haggle a deal.

Reconsidering my decision today. Talking with a dealer in Florida that has a Brazen 2008 model for just over $9,000. Clean history. Very tempted to settle with insurance and then get this one. The only thing that is an apparent issue with the 2008 is that a previous owner put flames on the center console. WTH?!

No, 2.4 ... but there is a GXP in California in Brazen. Hard to find a low mileage GXP manual for a good enough price around here. Lots of autos though.

What is wrong with flames?

Rob, can I interest you in a one-of-a-kind center console that would go beautifully with the Punisher?

Seriously. You think I don't already have a custom leather covered center console from JPM? With PunisheR?

But thanks for the offer. I appreciate it

Okay, my Solstice brethren ... given the choice between these two fine specimen, what would be your choice?

https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-...ngId=511785266 or
https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/d...7015/overview/

Obviously the black one is closer to me, but the one in Florida is ready to deal and shipping is not that bad of a deal since they already have a car scheduled for shipping to this area.

The 2008 from Florida is a year newer, but has 10k more miles and is more expensive. It will also need tires. The description says it has a navigation system, so that could be a plus if the aftermarket radio was installed properly.

I like this comment:

All things considered I would lean toward the 2007, especially if it is close enough to inspect for yourself.

Did these even come with a nav system? Looks like a stock radio to me.

Not from the factory, which is why I mentioned "aftermarket radio". I honestly didn't look at all of the pictures, so it may well be a stock radio and the mention of "navigation" may just be a mistake.

I'm with John on this one black cars are a bitch to keep clean but they look sooo good all polished up and I like the sand and steel interior . I would never buy a car without looking at it because a picture can hide a lot of flaws . The black car is a private seller so you can get some idea of how well the car was taken care of and from the ad the seller is open to deal on it . Good Luck !
