How do you like the V? I've been thinking about one in the same color. I looked at a black '04 that was unfortunately pretty beat. Your's looks nice in the photos. Does the performance make you not nitpick the interior? That seems to be the biggest complaint but you can't argue with a car that used to hold the record for fastest 4 door around the 'ring.

I love the V. The perfromance absolutely makes you forget about some of the interior, which really isn't ALL THAT bad. I have some maintenance to do on bushings, etc to firm up the drive line (@60K in miles now) but this car is great. I drive it in the winter too with snow tires in Chicago and it is very sure footed. Two thing to watch for, bad motor mounts lead to broken drive shafts and other common problems solved with the 06 and 07 models, and watch out for the Diff. IF the car was beaten you will know it and the diffs aren't cheap. Anti-wheel hop is key if you really want to bang this car around (which I do). I love this car enough that I will probably trade up to a Gen 2 V in the next 18months.
