Unique trade offer... advice welcome!
So, I've been in love with STis, GDs (preferably 07s) in particular.
I got an interesting trade offer for my GSXR-600
My bike is a Black Gsxr600, year 2008, with 10k miles. Fully serviced, and mechanically like brand new. Few scratches on the bike, but never laid down, and in pretty good condition overall. Was asking 7000obo on craigslist.
I've been talking to a fellow who wants to trade me his 07 STI for my bike. He wants me to throw in 5-6k.
Few things about his STI:
Lightly modified (uppipe, protune, turboback, small knickknacks)
Crappy xxr 518 wheels (no original BBS wheels)
Needs tires + brakes
Black paint, pretty straight body, minor clearcoat fading near hoodscoop
Honeycomb grill rattles
Short throw shifter
Owned by a 20 year old for 80k miles, and I'm assuming it has been driven fairly hard and "played with" quite a bit.
I would only have to pay tax on the difference, and I'd be getting great trade value for my bike. I figure, worst case, I could turn around and sell it, but I have been looking for an 07 STi for years...
I'd love honest advice. I know its not perfect, but I don't expect perfect for a 08 GSXR and a few grand.
Thanks in advance!
