@Kingfisherwi - When I saw your pic I thought it was my car!!!
I like the look better than the new model.
Same colors in and out, I did the same mods....even the same spot mirrors.... but then mine is a X so I don't have the chrome door handles, and I went with the OEM aerobars..
I also installed the wheel well trim covers, which I think dresses it up a bit.
In my case, it was a certified pre-owned.
I've had good luck with the car..
The only issues were a bad oil pressure sensor (there should have been/should be a recall on that part) and the dreaded Takata hand grenade airbag.
Hopefully yours already had the airbag replaced. If there's a doubt, you can check it by the VIN on www.nhtsa.gov/recalls
Do you have the stick or 4EAT?
If you do your own maintenance, it is a very inexpensive car to own.
Good Luck with yours and Welcome to the forum!

I have the 4EAT and all the recalls have been taken care of.
