FL Estate sale find

Bought a 2004 titanium grey 6spd from an estate last week.
I did a little reading on it before I bought it to understand value...
This is what I know about it:
Senior owned
One owner
dealer serviced, have the records
Car is very very clean
50,000 miles
Coils,oil,plugs done this summer
Air bag stuff at dealer done too
Tire are practically new
Brakes look unworn
I drove the car for 10 miles before I bought it, as far as I am concerned it could be a new car. Super tight, no noises on any bumps, drum tight on highway bumps. Steering has no play
Non smoker car
Cloth interior
Interior is like new even the original drivers floor mat is nice
Battery is new
Car is stock
I have not titled car yet
Not sure if I want to keep it but the more I look at it the more I want too...
I occasionally haul some service toolboxes around and the trunk is barely enough for the stuff so not practical.

Nice man. This is identical to the new rx8 I just got - 04, titanium gray, 6 speed, black leather, etc. Only difference is nav and mine has 10k miles somehow.

Looks real nice. Noticed your headlights look pretty clean -oddly enough, on my car, the tail lights have 0 issues with condensation, but if I drive at night for a while with the hids on, I will get some slight condensation that dissapears the next morning. Ever experience this?

Good luck w it
