Question 2003 Dream Cruiser

I am buying one of these tomorrow, the series 2 PT Cruiser "dream cruiser". It is the high output turbo. I have some questions. I know I should use synthetic oil, right? Is it an absolute must to use premium gas on it? (man gas is expensive these days). What MPG do these turbo dream cruisers get?
It has 20" rims on it, low profile tires, what PSI do I keep those at? Also what do these Dream Cruisers with the HO Turbos go 0-60 in? Just curious. Thanks in advance, I am very excited!!!

Welcome! How much are you paying for it, how many miles? Has the timing belt been done before if its close to 100k or over?

From what I hear on HO premium gas is a must, someone with a ho can anser that better.

I am paying $10,900 for it. Its MINT and I mean mint!! It has only 32,700 miles on it! Not bad for a '03 huh? An older couple owned it, and rarely drove it, so it is like brand new.

How much am I overpaying? I thought for a car that is pretty rare, and in such pristine condition, I was getting a decent deal. No?

Evile, It sounds like it has some mods' 20 inch wheels? What else has been done to it?
Can you post a picture of it for us? Someone on the site has a list of all the Dream Cruiser
3's that he has been able to find....I think it is Candyman...Check out his site...Welcome to the site! PTpreacher
