Picked the car up a few weeks ago and have been having a lot of fun with her. I need to fix a few things like the middle console latch(needs a new one) and the driver side mirror(has this weird blue red thing going on that makes it look like a 3D glasses mirror). She's running well, there is sometimes a pretty moderate vibration on the wheel sometimes. And other times I will hear weird mechanical noises going on. Even if shes just turned on and not even running. kind of sounds like a grinding of gears or something.

Nice car. looks a bit low in the rear. Make sure the automatic level control is working. If there is a leak in the lines or rear shocks, the compressor will run constantly (right side rear or car).

The driver's side mirror is the auto tint gone bad from the heated mirror element. Turns a rust color. I bought a redi cut mirror glass replacement and epoxied it over the existent mirror glass. looks great.

Welcome Charlie, car looks like its in great shape, an ditto on the color. Larrys probably right about the noise, and if you search around, I remember there being a thread about wheel vibration somewhere.
