Everything looks fresh except for a deteriorated side air intake sticker. The OZ 5 spoke alloy wheels are in beautiful condition as well, unmarked and shod with slightly older 2015 tires. The Interior is original, seats, dash, carpets and door cards showing very little signs of wear and tear for the age. Except for the minor worn leather on the driver's seat edges.
