Nice lookin' ride!

I certainly hope that the dealership told you about all the aftermarket stuff done to it. Exterior only: I can see aftermarket FMIC (necessary upgrade so that's a bonus!), wheels, at least lowering springs if not coilovers, intake scoop, rally armor (nice touch!), rear spoiler risers, and some decent rain guards.

I'm 90% certain it was previously tuned, so it's a good idea to have a compression test done to verify the condition of the engine block.

I hope it all works out!

Make sure the dealership includes the Cobb accessport. I see the cable dangling there.
Post some pics of the engine bay when you get a chance!

Compression test, Compression test, Compression test!

Make sure that the battery is not more than a few years old. If it is change it and make plans to replace it and the purge valve once you get it.

Welcome from an English Bruva 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿, what’s holding you back? You know you want it. 😆
It's just time, haha, I have to wait till the banks open to get a payoff amount on my current car.
Stock fuel system can't handle e85. If there's an ethanol tune in the car it's probably E30.
May not have the stock fuel system.. ill find out more Monday tho

Guessing these have crappy factory purge valves?

I'd push more for a newer battery and not mention the purge valve. If the AccessPort comes with the vehicle (the cable is clearly there in the picture) and they reflash the PCM the AccessPort will no longer work.

The AccessPort is mated to your specific vehicle and is more or less useless without it. If it is in the vehicle you can use it to determine a lot about with have been done as far as mods & tune goes.

Is it a 15 or 16? Sweet looking ride man! By mods brands and whats done, looks tasteful and not hacky. What's the mileage?
