Ad claims Aero...really?

Saw this ad, says it's an '04 Aero. Seems to be loaded but I don't see 'Aero' badges. Anybody see evidence for/against ?
Might be a decent deal if it's really not rusty.
No pics of the interior.

It's a Linear model, which is the low pressure turbo. 2.0t badge on the back

I thought that might be the case. So it could be an optioned-up Linear.

Most Aero's I've seen from those years seemed to be V6 motors...make sense?
Any significant disadvantages to the LPT? Is this one of the sludge-prone motors?

Aero 9-3s were V6 for 2006-2009. In '03 they were called Vector and were HPT 4-Cyl, in '04/05 they were Aero and were still a HPT 4-Cyl

If I remember on those cars the only difference was the programming between the LPT and HPT. And they AREN'T sludge motors, ever in the SS. Great engines really, very reliable.
