UPDATE 7/26/2020 -- Decided to sell the car again. I thought I would start driving it more but I have not. With driving to work less due to the pandemic and owning three cars it doesn't make sense to keep this car when someone else can enjoy it. Selling for $8,000.


I have a white 2003 Spyder that I've taken good care of. It has ~81,000 miles and has been garage kept during my entire ownership and gets regularly cleaned, waxed, and detail the interior. I've put about 5,200 miles on it in over 3.5 years of ownership. I installed a new Odyssey battery in it about 16 or so months ago. Only maintenance items I've had to do are synthetic oil changes, transmission fluid change with Amsoil, engine air filter, and tire rotations. Only modifications I've done are 35% window tint (all tint legal in Maryland), and did cycleheads door panel and door armrest upgrades. I also upgraded the map light and license plate lights with bright LED bulbs.

Recent upgrades/maintenance:

- Replaced all Toyota OEM struts and strut mounts with four new KYB Excel-G gas shock absorbers, four new Monroe strut mounting kits, and four new KYB boot kits.

- Replaced the Toyota OEM alternator with Iraggi 200 amp aftermarket high output alternator and new serpentine belt.

I'm sure there are other things I'm forgetting but let me know if you have any questions.

Car is pretty clean for a 2003 and compared to many I've seen on the road.

Here's some more pictures of the soft top and seats since people have asked. No tears in either. Both are in good condition for a 17-year old car.
