    Hey hey,

    First post, kinda been lurking for a minute.

    Ive been wanting/ watching these cars for over a year. Always wanted a marauder, but now and SHO makes more sense.

    This guy has gone as low as 23900. Im probably going to go for it.

    Anything im missing here? warning signs? stuff i should be checking for. its got PP listed in the AD, but im pretty sure its missing on the car, though this is the case for the last 3 ive looked at as well. I think ive decided its not a deal breaker. Also im sure ill be posting a ton after i get it.

    Year, miles, maintenance records? Has the car been crashed, is it in good condition. Any idea if the PTU fluid has been changed?

    ahh looks like my link was pulled. I dont know the rules yet lol.

    2016, 21500 miles. No accidents, 1 owner, 401a. Looks like it was a fleet car.

    no park assist\adaptive cruise\butt masseurs

    No idea about the PTU fluid. I will bring it up with them for sure.

    If it was a fleet car, I would be asking about as many records that they have on the car.

    If it was a rental originally, I doubt much documentation exists for the used car reseller.

    If fleet I doubt a PP car, but check the steering wheel should have Alcantara® suede-wrapped steering wheel
    And door sticker under axle for 2.

    Yeah, its plain leather. I keep getting close, and then putting it off and continue to look.

    If i expand the search a good ways outside of Kansas city I seem to find slightly better deals.

    Although, finally this one out of the five I've looked at does not have a ragged out interior, and id hate to drive 400 miles to look at a car where they missed a ton of shit in the pictures.

    I swear the previous owners of these cars opened the driver door with their work boots everyday.

    I suggest you hold out for a PP SHO.
    And I would value low mileage over price or year considerations.
    Good luck

    This is basically what i have done. Holding out for PP, and searching wider area.

    Ended up having to travel for work for next 3 weeks, so put buying plans on hold till then. All the PP handling and brake upgrades really seem worth it on paper, not that i have driven them side by side.

    I love my PP. However, I have never driven a non-PP so I am bias.

    There is also a button to disengage traction control, less friction...more torque
