Are you sure those are VX SS rims? They look far too small to be 17's, or even 16's for that matter.

is this the same car you made a thread on last week?
cause if the price has come down that quick then i would be getting it checked out.
if not and its in good nick, and you like it then go for it. but offer them less than that
i personally wont buy from a dealer, but thats just me.

good luck with the search buddy
