To get that many kilometres in less then 3 years, you have to be doing more then double the typical driving in one year. Like 60 000 kms!!!! *****..thats a lot

The price is OK for that year. I'd do it

so you think it'* ok for the year and KMs....waiting to hear from the insurance compnay....make my hair go white...he also bought some chick a GTP for the same price...a 2000 too...and he said you should come take a look at them....the gtp dosn't hold a candle to the SSEi, the SSEi makes it look like a cavalier (hehe i knew there wa somethign about him i liked) and just going on saying that it'* a rally great price...

I say go for it if you like it.. the only concern I have is the supercharger nose cone and bearings and such. Along with changing the */C oil ( which isn't a biggies since you'll get me to do it anyways while you go take a pee break ) hahaha

And Jim isn't going to test drive till I do first :P

Or I'll be upset and hurt

Well there is two factors here yes their is alot of miles on the car but it has to be mostly freeway or highway miles because there is no way otherwise to get that many miles. I would have to say they used it for travel.
Factor # 2 is if you can pay for the car and the jacked up insurance rate because it is going to be an arm and a leg.
This is a tough decision... If I didnt have to pay the monsterous insurance bill I would probobly do it but since it has high miles and your going to be paying peak insurance for it I dont think I would do it personally.
