Default How much do you guys think my car is worth?

OK so first of all here's my main question.

In a couple of months I'm planning on selling my car (2011 Subaru Impreza Touring Edition). Do you guys think that I should strip everything that I've done to it off and make it look stock again? Or leave it as is and try to sell it like this.

Mainly which way do you think I'll get more money and how much?!?!? I'M CANADIAN SO PLEASE DONT USE US CURRENCY UNLESS NOTED!

Side Notes:
Full Cat-Back Borla Exhaust System
Most likely will only sell with stock Subaru wheels
I'll be taking off the inside stick slap regardless
When I say strip I mean strip EVERYTHING that I've done, other than the roof rack (maybe).

It's only worth what someone will pay for it.

That being said, I'll give you tree-fiddy.

I would say trade in to dealer, and sell everything separately. You'll probably make more, and the process is painless.

If we ignore the "how much?" question, I think we can give you some answers.

In general, mods don't increase value. So for example, if you've got an aftermarket exhaust that you can sell off and put the stock one back on, sure. Obviously, if you had forged pistons, you're not going to rip the engine apart to replace them with stock.

I would say that you have a lot of personalized things you've done to your car that are "your way". I would personally be wanting all that stuff back to stock. The interior "flair"....back to stock. Remove all the stickers and tow thing. I don't know what else you did to the car. If it's wrapped (I can't tell), I would tend to leave it because it would take a good bit of effort to remove it. If a buyer makes the sale contingent on removing the wrap and the paint being in good shape, then remove it.

Remove mods. Sell car stock/ish. Sell mods. Realize you lost more money on a depreciating liability.

As long as we steer this away from "how much?", I think it has value. Look at the pictures of the OP's interior and ask yourself if you'd leave it that way if you were looking to buy it or if you'd immediately be paying to make it look stock. I know what I'd do. This is different from a car with a CAI and strut tower bars and aftermarket stay bars....all of which are easily removed and sold for money. This is different. Interior changes that.....sorry......but in my opinion lower the value of the car dramatically and if made stock would not have things left to sell separately.

No one will buy that for decent money... lol. That's a rolling advertisement that says don't buy me. RETURN IT TO STOCK.
The mods have ZERO value and narrow your pool of buyers (to say the least). Sell your stuff online and you'll have made more money in the end.

Put it back to stock. Everything you have done to that car reduces the value to the overwhelming majority of potential buyers. You've turned an awd econobox into a noisy, noticeable rice burner.

What, you don't think the average buyer wants a fluorescent orange shift boot and a passenger dash that looks like the walls of TGI Fridays?
And I LOVE the bumper sticker plastered on the glove box door.

Classy designs like that never go out of style.
