    i took the ae86 for a test drive and loved it!

    the only thing is they wont give it with a rwc so i dont know what to do...

    its only a stock ae86 with pretty good interier and they just droped the 4age in it 5 months ago and the paint is just average, abit faded!

    should i buy it and get a rwc myself? or try and get them to do it which i have but they said they have no time because theres a baby on the way..

    the asking price was 4500 but now 3500. ??

    rwc do not come with ae86's. thats just how it is. its way easier to get a dogy rwc to put the car in ur name than to get one when selling it.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ x 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000 it just dosn't happen much but i would atleast have some one look over it propperly for rust and things of that nature YES you will fined some but its up to you to think if you can live with it fix it or what really with a 86 it comes down to more its structure than anything els engines can be changed same as wiring and so on so really look at the frame and shell more than anything

    Sounds like they are expecting it to cost money, so i would offer them a bit less just to cover yourself for any unexpected expenses.

    Seriously, 3.5 K is pretty reasonable for a 16V sprinter.
    and honestly having a car thats so old, you ought to expect to have something to fix.
    If I were you, I would buy the car, and fix things thats necessary.
    get the RWC and enjoy.

    just buy the darn thing, when u find out the real bad side to it, rust, rust, rust, etc... lock it, smash it, buy another one

    if its clean, your going to want to pull it off the road and reco the whole car if not a full rebuild...

    i dont think anyone one can just BUY a ADM ae86 and just drive it as a daily without wanting to put money on top =]

    asking for $50 off because you want to get it inspected is some mad lowballing.
    86 with a 16v for $3500.
