Looking at a MS6, need help/opinions

Ok guys, I've always been a fan of the MS6 and I'm going to look at this one tomorrow.

2006 Mazdaspeed 6

VIN# JM1GG12L661107080

I've read the threads here and on the Mazdaspeed boards, and I think I pretty much know what to look out for but I want to make sure I'm not getting into something that's going to give me a ton of problems. This will be my daily driver on a 50mi round trip commute plus various other outings and trips - I drive about 15K-20K mi/year. At this age and mileage is there anything else I should be looking for? Am I getting in over my head? The car actually looks VERY clean and seems pretty solid. Thanks in advance for any help you can give, guys!

@IHeartGroceries; & @mczimer; are either of you guys close enough to this Texas dealer to give this guy your experienced opinion?

Can't really tell anything from the pics- no engine bay shots. Looks like stock suspension, and is on the stock exhaust.

Hey! I saw your post on Mazda Community on facebook and recognized the pic of your 6 you posted... small world. Should have kept the G35 Rays for the new car!

What's up, bro! Lol! When i posted that pic I wondered if anyone would recognize it. Man, I wish I could've put them on the new car but they were destroyed in the wreck.

I don't know much about the speed 6 but I noticed it looks like the driver-side headlight was replaced (driver-side is clear and the passenger is hazy-looks like it is original).

Just look down the driver-side of the car and make sure all the body lines are even and see if there are any waves in the paint.

i wish you were my dad... i've been in a speed 6 before, one of my dads associates, man that thing was fast... EITHER WAY, if you want a project buy a regular 6 and turbo it, if you want a daily driver thats fast get the speed6
the only problem is they are attracted to other moving cars :P
