The guy claims to be in Florida, yet the car clearly has European style plates. What an idiot.

EDIT: reported to eBay as suspicious.

The seller has zero feedbacks and has been registered on Ebay for less than 30 days. Red flags. Clearly an EDM CRX with pictures lifted from a Cardomain page. More red flags. This reminds me of that other low mileage, mint CRX that showed up on EBay with the super cheap "Buy it now" price of $2100. That seller also had "approved buyers only". I smell a scam....there's something rotten in Denmark (where this CRX might actually be....). I suspect it works like this....people email the seller with offers (or the buy it now price). The seller emails them back that they've "won" the car and demand payment or a down payment (of say half). The "buyer" sends a Paypal or money transfer to a disguised Nigerian bank account and "poof" the seller disappears.....

I think it's an awesome car but I agree: not the best front lip (a bit mucn), the taillights are a bit odd (much better than when they were just all clear tails, but I like the pics where it has modified stock tails much better), also you've gotta admit that the grille/mesh stuff on the bumper looks a little flimsy. It's just a really large area to fill with mesh, and it looks wavy without a flat structure underneath to secure it to -- it's just the nature of the material. The mirrors are painted, but not the part where it bolts to the car. The seats aren't upholstered that well, either. It's not like there aren't 10 times as many flaws anyone could find on MY car. There is a lot to love about the car, though. The paint is awesome, the car with bodykit as viewed from the side is pretty much perfect. I love the painted-to-match valve cover and center taillight (just not the stripes on clear). The wheels work with the car very nicely, too. It's a very nice CRX, but I don't think it's perfect, but mostly it's a matter of personal preference and not the quality of the build. This group will NEVER agree on the dual exhaust, though :)

This means that the car was registered in '92. The fact that it was approved in holland in '98 means it was registered in a foreign counrty first. (Probably Germany) He paid: € 4143 as import tax.
The current owner registered the vehicle into his name on 9-2-06.
Inspection doesn't expire until 7-7 next year.
The car is still currently registered in holland.
