Ooh. JTDFR320150070970
Leather, manual and limited slip. Although silver is my least favorite spyder color. The early arrival of winter this year has me hoping it will sit for a few months. Coincidentally I’m looking for a more capable winter/towing/utility vehicle and I just saw a listing for a really lovely manual Nissan Xterra right in that area.

Looks like a very nice car. I read you post. Did you buy it? Just to put it in perspective one of 211 silver in 2005 about 130 stick and maybe 90 with limited slip. So a very popular color for 2005 but still not many with that option combination. Pretty much full option without the z1 package with the factory alarm and a few other goodies.

Didn’t buy it, but it is relatively close to me and I’m a bit tempted. I just looked at the dealer page for it. If it doesn’t sell soon it will probably sit over the winter and hopefully come down a bit in price.

9-10 is the market for that car with the mileage. Tell them the leading authority on the 2005 priced their car. It is priced as a paradise blue 50k mileage car.

This car continues to show up and here it is again. Seller is listing it as a rare likely the only factory 6 speed. It has a Toyota replacement label on the door and shows a 5 speed. I have never run across this with my research and how you get a replacement label. This car has quite a story of accident, falling off rack, you could write a movie script with the story. I misread the original data, it was always a 5 speed car.

This car continues to show up and here it is again. What I find interesting is the car was originally sold as a SMT. It was converted at some time that would probably show up on the carfax with a mileage change between the smt speedo and the stick speedo. Seller is listing it as a rare likely the only factory 6 speed. But the original data show it as a SMT but the data plate shows a 5 speed. So it does have some unknown between production and today. Could actually be a mistake on the data plate. I have never run across this with my research.
The label is shown as a replacement label, so it seems fishy on the owners part.
