2013 in Asphalt, original owner, almost 62k miles, manual transmission - bought May 24, 2012. Always has been kept in my garage. Paid off and Texas title in my name since May 2017. Only reason I'm selling is because I would like to get out of credit card debt, and letting go of the FR-S is the sacrifice I've decided to make to enable this to be done as quickly as possible. I do not want to sell my FR-S at all really... but I have to do what I have to do.


WARRANTY & RECALL WORK:

* EGI Control unit replaced @ 24,800 miles with updated unit (SU003-04568) 8/21/14 [effected a few very early '13 models...ECU basically fails and car ends up running horribly in limp mode] 

* Valve Spring recall work done @ 59,664 miles on 4/5/19 [new OEM spark plugs + Exedy Stage 1 clutch kit installed during the recall work] Decided to have the valve spring recall work done because my FRS has had valve cover seepage from day one - with smells of burnt oil and coating the undertray in oily residue.* Zero seepage after the recall work done and no burning oil smell or gunky undertray anymore.


MODS/PARTS

Custom work:
* fake diffuser panel removed (Two reasons for this - [1] the SRT exhaust I previously had installed burned a hole through the passenger side exhaust tip area, [2] with factory muffler removed the aerodynamics are altered and the fake rear diffuser area now catches air and makes the rear more unsettled at high speeds.
* mounting plates for racing mirrors
* mounting brackets made for driver's seat & Toyota Celica GTS seat belt buckle receptacle added to Recaro seat frame.
* custom 2.5" center-exit catback exhaust using factory exhaust flange and Burns Stainless components

Beautiful, and GLWS! 

Good job on making the sacrifice to remove debt. Getting out of debt and STAYING THERE will give you extreme freedom. Once you do that, get an emergency fund and then start retirement saving!

Slashing price, and few updates:

 

Items updated:

Mileage coming up on 63k, and over 3k miles since having the valve spring recall work done with zero issues... still running better than she ever has.

• tint removed from both side windows, was looking bad, getting worse, and affecting vision. Free mod that makes it look and function much better.

• Burns Stainless 2-stage 'quiet' muffler installed and tip reworked. Quieter than the 'race' muffler, but still very loud. Much deeper and pleasing tone though.

• Diode Dynamics LED lighting - SL1 low beam, interior dome light, and license plate light. The SL1 LED headlight bulbs are a massive increase in performance with the stock projector lense... nice even spread that has much farther reach, all with stock cutoff. Now it's at least on par with the BRZ lowbeam lighting (stock original FR-S lighting is VERY lacking compared to the BRZ/86 headlight units). Switching to halogen high beams makes ZERO difference in light output other than the shift upwards in light output.

• Side mirror changed out for larger FIA GT convex sedan mirrors, not as convex as the former Club GT mirrors it had but much larger area tha is almost stock size.

• Verus Engineering Carbon fiber ducktail - a visually blemished unit they had on heavy discount. It was lightly sanded and shaped on leading front edge, with Hysol 608 epoxy added to leading edge to strengthen it. Painted black and clear-coated / turtle waxed to match the other components I painted.

• the Radium oil catch can work finally finished - factory passenger strut tower brace had a steel mounting bracket welded to it and the aluminum bracket for the can was reworked, new black oil hoses from Pegasus racing installed.

New pictures that were taken recently...

 

And finally price dropped to $10k. If for whatever reason you just want the stock seat reinstalled and don't want the Recaro Sportster CS, I will keep the Recaro and drop price to $9k.
