Original owner.

I would consider this a project (or parts) car at current condition. Still runs fine and I'm commuting to work in the car but it does need work.

Selling as is. $1,500.

Performed scheduled maintenance. Have most of service records. In car's early life I took to dealership for service. Later on I did some work and maintenance myself.
Intake manifold replaced by dealer when under warranty.
Minor accidents: two low speed bumps in traffic (5mph) and a scrape on parking lot pole.
Minor Mods: disabled DRL and put in euro switch. Windows up/down with key fob.
Took to mechanic in June 2019 when noticed rough idle. Issues mechanic noted are below.

Some paint and rim scratches/cosmetic deficiencies
Cracked windshield
No headliner (I removed the headliner due to sunroof leak. The leaks seem to be repaired. I still have the old headliner but needs new fabric.)
Some of the fabric trim is sagging or coming off (tried to fix one of the passenger panels and it is apart)
Check Engine Light for misfires that occur intermittently (mostly cold starts)
Oil leak (per mechanic 6/2019)
Timing chain cover leak (per mechanic 6/2019)
Camshaft cover leak (per mechanic 6/2019)
Tire cupping due to worn shocks (per mechanic 6/2019)
Worn tie rod

Will include spare parts (have a few interior plastic pieces)
Will include the Bentley Service Manual
Unused spare and valet keys.
