    I’m putting my R53 up for sale. I live in Memphis so I am pretty sure none of you live close enough to be interested but just Incase I decided to post it here. It’s not pristine but it’s not bad ether. It has an airbag light on due to the front left airbag, the one on the A pillar. The check engine light is on due to the cat being gutted. I may put a new cat on it. I have changed the oil every 3000 miles.

    mods; 17% pulley, cold air intake, ATI crank pulley, Kone yellows, Eibach springs, braided brake lines, adjustable rear control arms, adjustable camber plats.

    Asking $3000.

    Hell, it's hardly broken in yet, but you've spent a lot of time in those seats! :Devilish: :Cigar:

    Are you coming to MOTD this year?

    No work killed the Dragon for me. I work every day but Thursday. So no Dragon for me! The cigar night at the Dragon I will start a fire in the fire pit and light one of those fine cigars you sent me. Really hate I am missing it

    Good luck with the sale but you're gonna miss it when it's gone.

    Damn Lee, no MOTD and selling the R53. WTF.

    It’s a shame I don’t need a parts car or a beater or I would grab yours up since I know you have taken great care of it over the years. I see you still have my old 3-spike wheel on it.

    That three spoked wheel is much nicer than the two spoke. I hate to get rid of it but something has to go. I would love to keep it and do a a cool build but I have too many projects. Maybe a Gen1 GP or a Gen1 JCW with an aero kit and sun roof some time in the future. But for the near future it will be driving an old Sequoia till I find a pickup.
    I plan on getting the Helmet dynode soon and then latter I will add meth. I just couldn't justify two MINIs.
