2004 Special Edition for sale

**SOLD**

Car is super tight. Drives great. It has been driven every few days. $9,500 Have not seen a CEL for months.

Bought 5 years ago in Los Angels and it had 121k. Has 141k now. It has never been outside overnight in the 5 years I’ve owned it. The last year its sat all year and been started weekly / bi-weekly. Drive it once a month.

New:
Michelin Pilot Sport tires
Windshield
Paint hood and bumper
Brakes / fluid
Clutch (Pelican master kit with new DMF)
CPS
Both headlights new, factory
Water pump
Fuel pump
Bosch starter
Drivers trailing arm
All 4 wheel bearings
AOS
RMS
CV inner / all 4 boots
Pentofrost coolant
Alternator / pulley
Belt
* I have most old parts from all projects

Mods
UD pulley
Low temp stat
Cat delete rear both
LN IMS bearing SN on door and hood
Oil filter adapter to filter all oil at start up and uses spin on filters
Hawk pads and rotors
Shift lever leak fix with new roller bearing and seal
* I have most old parts to put to stock

SE features
Book says a few mm lower. I can’t verify that.
Uses 987 air filter from factory
Book said wider TB to get the few extra horses it’s supposed to have over an S
4mm spacers all the way around stock
GT metallic silver, only 986 to come with a 911 color factory
Wind screen between head rests
Short shift lever
Full cocoa brown leather wrap interior
Special tips and bumper grill inserts
Black S gauge faces with chrome rings around them
Litronic xenon headlights work great, new. Has leveling arms on suspension.
Has factory sub woofer on shelf behind seats.

The bad.

Couple tiny scratches. Door jambs can be sprayed for sure.
CEL x 3. 1) Cat underperform forget which side. Saw this twice in 5 years. 2) Very slow leak detected in fuel vapor recovery. Saw this monthly when driving daily. 3) SAI under perform. Saw this more commonly. There was a thread where Jaeger cleaned the ports while the cats were off and problem solved. It’s not the pump or housing I was told when I had that looked at.
Not original rims but I always really like the look
Tiny bump or raised spot on leather on dash. It can be re-glued or fit but I’m not that daring and it’s not that noticeable.
Clutch creek is noticeable after more spirited summer driving. I was told it’s to do with using the longer clutch pivot point stud that came with the master kit, which also changed engagement point from low to floor to near top of travel. Never pulled trans to fix that because it drives great and it’s not always there. I’d swap it back. Clutch has less than 5k on it.

Feel free to throw out any questions. I don’t think I’m missing anything. That’s the car pretty much.

Remove trans housing. Have new roller bearing pressed in to replace graphite bearing. Install new oil seal, done. No drip from shift lever.

Iím having the same problem when trying to post to this forum from Safari and Chrome iPad browsers. The same pics post no problem when using Tapatalk app. Something to do with the new Apple pic format even though my iPad is set to use compatible pic format.

I’m getting it registered today and will take pics with my camera not the phone. Just washed it. I’ve ignored the poor car for a long time.

One more reduction before fixing issues. I’ve been running errands in it since I had it registered. Runs silent and fantastic. No CEL for some time now. It’s fast and sounds great. Don’t let some minor issues or mileage cause you to pass up a great car. I’ve seen some beaters and this car is super clean and nice. Not a drop under it.

Thanks. If not for the annoying parts Iíd stay at 12. With it being winter and some issues Iím trying to be reasonable but wonít drop below that. I know Iím taking a hit by listing issues but I donít want to be ďthat sellerĒ and let buyer find problems. Figured Iíd just be as straight as I could with the shape itís in. Drives great.

I have some time off in Jan and will get the trans pulled and follow some vac lines. Easy stuff. Then Iíll be back at 12. Iím really in no hurry but thereís no point in deciding to sell then pricing it where it will sit for months.

Great car....great price.

Honestly, I think the wheels hold it back a bit as the anniversary wheels are hard to find and very expensive if when you do locate a set. Maybe I'm wrong but that's what I've found (or didn't find) checking online.
In our area, there's one '04SE with 72K miles for sale for $15.5K by owner. The car looks fine picture wise but hasn't had the care and attention (on new LN bearing) your car has had.

Wish I was closer (and could find a decent price on new wheels) as I'm confident this car would be a great deal.
