Wow, 124 views and not one of you could be bothered to contribute anything of substance. Looking at other posts, seems like a trend. Keep up the good work, gents.
Not sure what you're looking for man (and not sure sarcasm is the way to obtain it). Is it a good price? Go on autotrader.com and type in the car details and take a look around. Is it in good shape? Go look for yourself. Are there any common problems? It only has 27kmiles on it. So it's unlikely to have problems. But more importantly, it's unlikely that it will SHOW problems this early in the game. So, even if there were common problems with this car, they wouldn't have presented themselves yet. I don't have a second gen X, so someone with one can correct me if I'm wrong.
Things to consider, it's coming up on 5 years old, so I don't think the price is far-fetched. And it looks like its been lightly modified. This can be a dicey area, depending on how brave/skilled the previous owner was. If they lightly modified it while taking good care of it, then you're golden. However, if they did crappy installations, poor weathersealing, unsafe electrical connections, then you'll have problems. Get eyes on it yourself, the crap jobs usually can be easily discovered.
For me, it's always about rust (I live in NY). The car is probably free of rust (check the carfax to see where it spent its time), mechanically it's only got 27 k, so it should be good. The only thing is price. I use autotrader to help me figure out where the market is. If they all check out, it's probably a good buy (as long as the previous owner didn't screw everything up).
Oh! Bring a scanner with you to scan for pending codes and whether the computer has been cleared! I got screwed with my last car because I didn't think to do that. It ended up having a major engine problem (4 years old, 65K miles). No codes, and all the readiness monitors cleared is a good thing.
