Yep it'* got the HUD and it checked out. I did see a couple of chips in the windshield but no cracks. They're on the passenger side out of the drivers line of sight. I'd get them fixed under insurance. Because of the HUD the windshield is expensive. They may be able to actually fix the glass too.

Definitely go see it in person before you make a decision. Jeff at the dealership seemed like a cool dude.

I'd look for an 00-01 with lower miles for the same price range as opposed to the 100k+...

The 03'* have a better transmission. (better clutches) The 03'* have better seats.

The car has been used which is a good thing. Its obviously highway miles considering the the shape of the interior and seats. Cars that sit for a while or are just used in the city generally have more problems even though they are lower miles.

I'd buy it if it was local. Thats a great price.

I was never considering buying another Bonne with 100,000 miles on it, but after a lot of deliberation and thinking of my financial situation, I think the 03 is a winner. I've searched for 2000-2003 cars in a 300 mile radius, and even lower mileage 2001s are $11,000 to $12,000 everywhere. With enough patience I could probably get it lowered, but this 03 has every option, and my desired interior/exterior color. The seats look much nicer than the 2000-2002 (not sure on comfort yet, but none will be like my AL7s anyway).

Karl'* test-drive and inspection of the car has me very confident that it'* in very good shape, and was probably well-maintained. I'll maintain it much better regardless.

The price of the 2003 is just too good for me to turn down.
