My 2005 S was ~24k with the sunroof, 6 speed manual, 16" wheels (17" 
runflats were a bit too harsh on our Wisconsin winter heaved roads), 
auto-temp, and a few other goodies.  I think the price is pretty fair 
but I also think she might come down a tad.  As Derf suggested, 
determine what she paid and use the rate of depreciation to figure what 
it's worth and if you like it offer her a bit more.  They are fun cars 
and almost give me my "Sprite" fix during winter months.

Good luck,
