I have the green version. Was described as mint in box. When it arrived...
I noticed that drivers mirror was missing (RIGHT side in this case), and the left outter door handle. I contacted the “seller” whom was a person selling it for the collector/owner whom was said to have cancer. The big C is a serious matter and the seller told me he would look around to see if he could find the parts. He had a red one listed that had both missing parts. I suggested he remove said parts from that and mail them to me and then realist the red one as stated with missing parts. Seller said he’d rather not do that so ..... under the circumstances I waited. Long story short after waiting a few weeks that turned into months I never got the parts. I also later realized I got the wrong box! 😕 the box I received was for the silver LE VERSION! Sad because I waited years to land a green one for a good price (about $105-110). That’s not a good deal for a model missing parts and incorrect box/no papers. Oh well .... I’ll pray and hope the situation was a TRUE one and that the funds WERE to help offset the bills that the person received as a result of cancer treatments. Assuming the latter is true I’m ok with things just as they are though I wish I had gotten the model as described! But to help an ill person in need is more important then models!!
