Thinking about purchase

Hey Looking at an 2005 with 50000 miles on it. Visually it is really nice shape. Car fax says it was a lease early on. But no flags. Paint is a non stock item ( Suzuka blue metallic ). Their looking for 19,900.00. Any input is welcome. Oh ya I'm a car nut currently restoring Jaguar xjs v12 and Jeep scrambler waiting in the wings. These S2000's have been on my wish list for a while you folks like what they do?
Thanks

You say it has been re-painted a metallic color?

Check out the JDMartin post on this site. An 05 with less miles for less money. White with tan interior. Lots of pics. looks pretty good. Don't know where it is located, but regardless might make for a real nice road trip home.

Suzuka Blue Metallic (I'd give you the paint code but I'm too lazy at the moment to look it up), is a nice stock color. Who told you it was non-stock? Whoever that was has no idea what they're talking about If this car is at a dealership, I'd be hesitant to believe much of what they say

Well I guess I will be a permanent member now. Pick it up tomorrow. And it is the original color my mistake Suzuka blue. Checked out real good Florida car. What I would consider normal wear for 57000 miles. Mats could use a replacing but carpets nice. Interior very good. Needs seats removed and a good vacuuming. Thanks for the responses
