Dump that slow honduh ASAP and get in line for a real car - the STi!

At least that's what I did not so long ago. I sold my GS-R and was glad to get it off my hands. The waiting is killing me though, but is sounds like the pricing will be here soon at least.

Since you wanted to know what we thought;

25.5g's is A LOT to ask... nice rsx-s though. Good luck selling. My friend sold his rsx-s with 5700miles for 18,000 including injen intake and 17" racing hart cp035's (forged version).

Damn man,
Sorry to say but your friend got RAPED. I am so sorry to hear that, I have already been offer near what I am asking for it and I don't think that my price is too fictional, since kbb+nada both estimate the car's value at about 23,??? with bone stock. I know I know performance parts bring down the price of a car but I will just try my luck and see how it goes, many people seem to be interested soI not gonna sell my self so short just yet...

thanks for the input...

sorry bro, but i also think your asking way to much, but hey if you can find a sucker to buy the car for that price then more power to you.

good luck.

I generally remove all my mods, sell the car at fair market value and then sell the mods for about %50 of what I paid for them. But who knows, maybe you'll get a buyer for 25K.

Yeah u r right, but the oem options alone would cost about 1.8k and the rest of the aftermarket stuff cost me like 6k...I just don't want to regret selling it for a huge loss when I have at least two months untill the Sti comes out ya know...again what would be a fair price for this car?

RSX2STI,

I also think 25.5k is too much... if a new RSX cost around 24k...
You might find very very people that actually like to buy cars
already modded....most people on the other hand avoid modded
cars... Yes, you spent good deal of money on it... but you also
*probably* voided most of the factory warranty on it...

Personally... I would do what cabalisticfire said and sell the
aftermarket parts separately.... but then... thats just my opinion...

More of my opinions....
Very few aftermarket parts out there actually increase the value
of the car... in general... I like to think this is how much I will be
spending on aftermarket parts...

Total amount = (Price of the part * 1.5) + labor

since most aftermarket parts actually decrease the value of the
car...

Whatever Edmunds and KBB say. You CAN NOT add the price of your mods into the car. That's lost money. Sell em seperate.

PS - If you get rid of anything, make it that hiddeous chrome floor junk, people see that and think "ghetto".

Hate to be the adult here, but after reading your ad I'm thinking "Why would this guy spend all this money on a car and modifications for the car and now want to sell it?" I know you answer it in the comments, but it smells funny to me

I'd remove this from the ad too. It makes you sound like you're not even really trying to sell it.

I'd suggest parting out your mods and sell the car as stock.
It would be easier to find a buyer and you will get a fair price for your car. Sell the mods separately.

For the price, if you sell through a private party, you might be getting $1K-2K over the trade-in value. My S2K trade in value was $26K while the private party value was $30K.

Unhappy

Strip the car and sell the parts separately.

Non-factory add-ons never ever get what you put into them. Not even close. Of the car is a classic (like a Shelby 350) it detracts from the value. Unless the add-ons have credentials (installed and tuned by a world famous RSX tuner) the buyer is taking a total chance on whether they are for real or just a mushed together bunch of aftermarket stuff installed by someone who may or (probably) may not know what they are doing.

Reason #732 why an STi is better than a modded WRX.

Definitely part it out .. I have done this time and time again .. always pays better .. and sells much easier

I would even take off the tint ... but that's just me ..

... and one more thing .. I hate to be negative but .. GET RID OF THE DIAMOND PLATE .. and never tell anyone that you had it .. not your friends .. not your girlfriend .. not your mother

that sheeit belongs in horse trailers and old jeeps .. otherwise it's as ghetto as StreetGlow .. might as well start buying your parts at Godfather Customs

Car looks good for a Honda. The price it is worth is what someone will give you for it, and not a penny less. Only picture that is missing is one of the custom subwoofer. You say show car quality, have you ever shown it? A few trophy's always raises the value of a car.

I've found Edmunds to be noticeably lower than KBB. Or, vice versa found KBB to be sometimes a bit too high.

I know a year after I bought my 99 Corvette, KBB's private party value was about 4000 dollars higher than I paid and about 2000 higher than MSRP on a new one. Problem was that most dealers weren't selling for MSRP...

I'd also advise removing the parts and selling it as stock. I got lucky with selling my WRX -- the buyer wanted exactly what I had.

For a little added perspective... I recently traded in my S4 on a 4runner and prior to the trade I removed all of my aftermarket parts. I sold every part I had in 6 hours for my asking price. I had a car cover, BPVs, aftermarket grill, aftermarket motor mounts, shift knob, license plate bracket, and a few other small items. Granted, these were not high dollar items but I've seen wheels and other big items sell within minutes of posting on some boards. I'd say post your parts on clubrsx.com and sell your car stock.

Yeah, sorry man. We're no strangers to modding, and we all know that mods on the car detract from the the price. We're just being realistic. Mods are a no-no if you know you're going to sell the car!
