I would like to start a directory of 2005 spyder stick shift cars. Why? Because they are low production and I think it would be nice to see how many I can identify out of the 300+ cars sold in the US. So I need owner name, city state, vin color and interior vin and mileage.
So in stick, I assume you are looking for the 5 speed manual and not the SMT's? Just clarifying. I have a 2005 but its an SMT.

Not correct. I started that way and realized the SMT are actually more interesting than the sticks and part of the 780 cars made. It is a six speed, has cruise control and more SMT have limited slip differential. I really like mine but it only has 40k miles and no issues. SC just wont let me change the title of the post. have a pgp 2005 smt along with my black stick 05. So I would like to add your car to the list. Vin, location and miles. Thanks Lee

Thanks for the clarification. I'll try to get that all tomorrow. Where is this list kept? Is it something that is shared on here?

This forum has become a resource for those interested in the 2005. I help anyone that requests help. For example I try to keep picture of salvage cars so when some are fixed there is a record of the damage for future owners. I also help those without a window sticker with information on the port and factory options. The actual list is held private but many of the cars are listed on this forum. Here is how my SMT is listed. No name or phone number are kept.

This car was just found and this picture filed in my system for the future thanks to silver on SC. A future seller stating the salvage title was because of a dented door would not be very credible now that this picture is posted on this site.

Maybe a comment on prices for 05 after a year of tracking the cars. First question is the price going up? Maybe. The answer is you can still find a nice 04-05 in the $7k or less for a higher mileage driver to $15k for a low mileage original car (dealer priced). Any car bought in that range is the current market for the 2004 or 2005. Both of my 05s were bought in the 12-13k both perfect original low mileage cars. The black car exceptional one owner all documentation, window sticker full option including limited slip, the z1 port option with factory security and carbon fiber dash. The z1 port option is included on the list and there are way less than 10% of the cars with this option which includes the first aid kit and emergency road kit. My PGP car is to me the holy grail (also full option z1 port option car) because there are no low mileage PGP identified to date of the 15ish imported in 2005 currently on the list. They rarely come up for sale. There are more PGP cars that will show up but that is all that is on the list. I subtracted $2500 for the hardtop from the price of my PGP car. Highest price so far for a 2005 is the 89 mile SMT sold at auction for $23k. Colors matter on price since some colors are hard to find. Both blues, grey and yellow are very hard to find. Other colors much more common and easier to find in low mileage examples. If you want to buy contact me for pointers or free advice or want to sell I can give you data on your car and the color combinations and sale prices to help you. I may buy one more car if my daughter buys the black one. The black car is detailed for show and I only need to remove the three dings in the car from a paintless dent person and it will be almost perfect with some really cool original factory markings and tags that most remove. I am very selective and will pay market for the right car in the right color with limited slip. Still a great value for the fun factor and rarity of the cars. Keep sending me your vins. Thanks

It's a high mileage SMT. 100K miles is where I see them with Trans problems. For those without an experienced SMT repair tech and access too used or rebuilt parts, the car becomes virtually worthless.
