Original owner of a 2004 picked it up in February of 2004. Black with a red interior 6 speed. I ordered it in July of 2003 sight unseen. The dealer also ordered a red automatic at the same time and they weren't sure it they were going to be able to order anymore or ever get anymore. There was a lot of rumors going around that supply was going to be very limited. Especially after the train crash that destroyed so many. On the night I went to pick it up there was 10 guys hovering around mine when I arrived. Nobody seemed interested in the red one. After checking it out and all the congrats and hand shacks, one of the dudes offered me $5000.00 to walk away. Since I didn't know if more were coming and all the rumors about shortages and the fact that I had just waited almost 8 months for it I decided to pass on his offer. True story. I paid sticker price which I had agreed to pay and the dealer had agreed to sell me it for. Many paid over sticker at the time so I felt luck about that. I drove it home in a snow storm and it has been through 10 winters as It was my only car for 10 years. I bought the SAP appearance package that included the 05-06 hood, the SAP grills and spoiler. Then I bought the front bumper extension. Painted it and installed all the parts myself. It has an 06 rear bumper and exhaust I had installed after I was rear-ended and got a new rear bumper for free. I asked the body man if he would order the 05-06 bumper instead and he agreed and installed it at no extra charge. I installed 06 tail lights. 35% window tint that is legal here in IL that has saved the front seat and the top of the rear seats that were prone to sun damage. I have owned it for 15 years now and I still love it. It has been a great reliable car.
