Also what do you think would be a fair offer? its a manual and physically looks to be in great condition very clean interior and exterior. seller says its been very well maintained.I'm looking at a 99 ZX2 "sport" with 295K miles (a lot I know) for potentially my first car and I'm wondering what the difference is because I know the S/R is the top of the line but I can't find anything on the "sport"

From what I read the American version of this car had to be non-interference. The European version might be an interference engine. I can testify to the non-interference nature of this motor since I have had the pleasure of the timing belt breaking twice while I was driving. The first time was right after I first got it and the second time was right after getting it replaced and then getting hit by an old lady on the right side shortly thereafter... The fuel switch shut the car down in the wreck so the motor shut off suddenly. It damaged the brand new timing belt but not enough to prevent me from driving away from that wreck once I reset the fuel switch. ABout two weeks later it quit running on me and sure enough it was the timing belt. The mechanic who did the job the first time warranteed the parts so all I had to pay was the laabor. LOL. It's OK since I got $1500 from the insurance and the car only cost me $1100.Interesting, I assumed all DOHC (as opposed to SOHC) engines were interference.
