Default bought a 2000 SLE

Well, my dad and I went out and purchased a 2000 SLE today for my brother. He had been looking forever at a car to buy but couldnt' find a good deal. He went up north for an internship so while he was gone we took the liberty of finding something for him. We found this car which seems to be a great deal. It is a 2000 SLE with almost all options except for HUD, heated seats, and bose stereo system. Oh, and did I mention that we're getting the car for $11,000?!

BTW, he has NOT even seen the car yet. He'll see it for the first time tomorrow.. (he'll be paying for it though. )
It only has a few flaws which consist of
1. fog light switch doesn't push in
2. radio display is dim in the very center of it
3. paint is bubbling on hood
4. Turn signals aren't working
all of these problems the dealer is going to be fixing before we pick the car up tomorrow except for the radio display... It doesn't really matter, he'll be swapping a new pioneer cd player into it anyway..
and now onto the pictures!

Nice! Hows it drive?

Repainting the hood is good, those aluminum hoods are notorious for problems...

He joining our little club?

It drives NICE! It has very good pickup for NA (actually better than the GP'* I test-drove.. go figure) and it'* nice and smooth. Basically drives identical to the 2000 SSEi. I definately wouldn't mind driving it myself, I'd just miss the passing power.

Not sure I would call it loaded missing a lot of the big stuff. If it were me I would definately want to look at a car before purchasing it. Other than that sounds like he will enjoy the car. Are those rims 16'* or 17?
