Post Help me decide how much my car is worth

I am seriously considering selling my sube "Dont flame me but the car just doesnt work with my new job and I cant afford two cars"

It is a 2000 Blue Ridge Pearl 2.5RS sedan with 21,000 Miles. It has the following mods Yokohama A520 in 205.50.16, STI V5 Struts with Eibach springs "the Rallispec kit", Whiteline adj sway bar, Kartboy shifter, Cusco shifter bushing, STI engine and Tranny mounts, ACT clutch, a K&N air filter, and a Primetive Enterprises light weight flywheel.

I figure its a perfect canidate for Forced Induction and should be worth $19.5K. Am I dreaming?

Input needed.

99 times out of 100 you will make better money by parting out the aftermarket stuff to vultures like us, and then selling the car stock.

after market bits are worth nothing, sadly.

Check www.bluebook.com

It's simply mileage and year nothing else matters.. Well unless it's a Ford GT40, or Porsche 917 or Ferrari 512

Have a Nice Day?

People pay less than that for a new RS - the aftermarket parts, basically because they infer aggressive driving and increased wear - as well as being non-warranted parts, do little/nothing to add to the value of the vehicle. Look at http://www.kbb.com - they'll give you a price based on mileage and condition, and you can wrangle with a prospective buyer about the value of your mods. I don't want to come off preachy, but...(this is for anybody) you have to be committed to a vehicle to start w/ serious mods. I doubt any dealer would ever take a trade-in with more than basic bolt-on stuff attached, and you should expect that any money you spend on mods will go only into your driving enjoyment, not the overall value of the car. After I put my AFC/ITC in (I know they can be removed), I figured I was pretty much in it for the long haul...

Its not really a money issue other than not wanting to buy two cars and I may yet hold on to her. However, sometimes you wonder just how much you are screwing yourself. Especially when your job frowns on a small fast car like the RS.

Well looks like 18k if im lucky,

Thanks

Robert

I say put back all your stock parts and sell the aftermarket stuff separately. You won't get extra for the "aftermarket goodies" as like what the above posters said....it infers aggresive driving. In fact it might even retard the sale price.

Cool

A more simple solution would be to quit your job and get one that doesn't frown on small fast cars!
