164k you barely get your ass groove in the driver seat (comfort seats)
by then....that's nothing. I would go with to look at it but I refuse
to ride in a Nissan sentra....if you get a limo I'll go.....seriously
now, like the guys have been saying you need to assess the general
condition. Getting an enthusiast's auto is would be well worth any
premium, you might consider the one in nyc that was posted a little
while ago, that car was decked out, i would not buy an old 20v unless it
had euro lites (or equivalent) and suspension work done,
I would have bought a car 800 miles away (20v avant) except that some
guy from 2000 miles away from it beat me to it.....so I only had to go
like 350 or something for another one.

164k isn't too many miles?
