    Just a BAT thing I think. This one doesn't look any better than the one I sent from the car dealer in Buffalo NY https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-...ckType=listing Passed emissions and had valve cover gaskets done in June 2019 has heated front seats PDC 6 disc CD changer and is a Sport with a clean Carfax. Has not had timing chain and guides done but other than that a nice car in the colors you want. Note NO big Nav screen.

    I crab and fish when they let me. Crabbing just opened for the white man, the natives went 80,000lbs over their quota so I guess I'm good for five or ten crab.

    It's a low mile sport, black on black with coil overs. I'm going to look at it for myself.

    The "coilovers" part scares me off.

    For and EDC car it is very common and considered and upgrade, one EDC strut is $1000. Mine still works but I have had to put in a used strut.

    I'm still out here looking. I did drive one this past weekend that held promise, but the cabin experience was disappointing.

    Aside from windnoise at the top of windshield, one of the biggest distractions was with the gauge cluster. I noticed right after starting the test drive that I couldn't even see the speedometer well enough to know how fast I was going. And I turned the daytime lights on and adjusted the brightness wheel, which seemed to have a very slight impact.

    The car had super dark window tint, so I'm wondering if that's what made the gauges so hard to see. Would they have been brighter at nightime? Is there an external sensor that increases the dash lighting at night? There apparently isn't a sensor inside the car. It did seem to have a bit more illumination on the return trip to the seller's location, but still way too dark.

    I'm wondering if it was an issue with the interior being too dark due to the tinted windows, or if the bulbs get dimmer over time.

    Did you have your sunglasses on? My dash lights are way too bright at night!
