Anyone ever seen memory front seat buttons with apparently a manual seat adjustment lever?

Alarm bells ringing?

Yeah, looks like the seats have been changed. That memory panel on the bose speaker - you can get one without the seat buttons on it and swap it over, but it looks like they havent done that.

Or door cards? I don't know, but what is the cable/hose running from under the expansion tank across the intake to the rear of the airbox? Is it PSE?

It's not PSE, PSE's the orange switch with the vacuum tubes connected to bank 2's plenum chamber.

It does seem odd that the owner wouldn't have just brought a replacement Bose speaker cover without the mem setting buttons whether they had changed out the seats or the door card at some point. personally other than that very minor point the specs good the mileage is good and its full OPC service history . which means IMO the change or seats or door card was probably a very genuine reason . we know the door card can warp or it maybe that the owner didn't like sports seats with the high side bolsters . I wouldn't let it put me off if everything else checks out. I might use it as a negotiating tool though Grin Grin Grin Thumb
