Default Possible gxp purchase

Hi am am new here. I have a ssei with a bad messed up supercharger which I got for cheap. long story short I brought it to local dealer that says it needs to be rebuilt. They offered me a 2005 GXP silver with 75,000 miles on it. They want 16,995 for it. the car has a window sticker price of $38000 and it is very clean inside.

I don't have one myself, but from what I've read the supercharger should be salvageable if you want.

But, dang!! That'* sounds like a good deal on the GXP!!

I am afraid to tackle it myself and the guy I bought it from sold it to me for $500 because he know the SC was bad. I am going to test drive the GXP today.

Just got back after a test drive and I bought it. Will pick it up tomorrow. Dealer dropped the price to $14.995 as long as I purchased a 3 year repair plan for $1200

I will have it in my driveway tomorrow.

GOOOOOOOOOO! Shadow! Alright, another GXP owner this week. Nice price and extendeds usually pay for themselves. That much mileage must be highways miles. Probably just woke that N* up.

Congrats Shadow!

You should see if a club memeber wants the SSEi, should be an easier fix than you were told. Or see if someone can help you fix it up and sell it for more $$$$

IMO A supercharger costs allot less than $14.995 + $1200 but at least you got a newer car I guess

7500 or 75000? If it was 7500 you stole it but uhh if it was 75000 that sounds about right!
