I had to look up punch list, first time i heard of it. So it basically is a list of things the seller of the XFi is going to fix for you,as a part of the deal?

Start a thread!

Rear wheel wells can be a problem, but probably only in the rust belt:

As the factory rubberized undercoating ages & dries out, it cracks and traps water, creating the above. That's my 2000 Metro. Despite that rear wheel well disaster, the front control arm area is near mint (for a rust-belt car) because it was regularly oiled.

It's sort of a loose deal, no hand-shake; but the tuning on the SuperB and payments on the XFi are coming out of a single monthly payment.

MetroMPG — Once I've increase my level of ownership, a [boxed cavity] thread will be necessary. I think I'll paint the (12"!) wheels before the road trip next week.

God's blessing on this wonderful world!
