Just located a 2006 JCW that appears to be white with reddish interior and carbon fiber mirrors and a few other items. 106k miles for $4800 in NC. Sounds right, drives well. Is price in the ballpark for such?

Without seeing that is a good price. Look on the selling page here and you will see what they want and do a Kelly Blue Book.

Just remember at the those miles you need to recognize that the following items may need to be serviced/replaced: supercharger, crank pulley, crank sensor o-ring, water pump, t-stat, alternator, belt and belt tensioner. This does not even go into the suspension and suspension bushings.

Unless the car interior was shot and the body rusted I would not have issues buying this car in a heart beat.

Thanks! Passed on the JCW for now as it will likely sit in the warehouse with other exotics until the right person comes along. Bought an 05 S 6spd model and am headed for the shop to see how much work is needed before I invest any money in a dark hole..lol
