This is why if you are selling a modded car, that you DON'T listed as modded, unless asked.

you wait until you get interest in person, go for a test drive, THEN tell them the mods if they want to know. The test drive is to assure to the potential buyer that the mods weren't jank, and/or installed is questionable ways.

This. I would never buy a used sports coupe that wasn't 100% stock. Not stock = previous owner likely pushed the car hard a lot. Sure, it's not a given, but it's not a risk I (or many others) would take. 100% stock means there's at least a chance the car was grandma driven.

No risk? No champagne! You underestimate stock driven sport coupes; they also get driven the **** out of. What particularly concerns you about a gencoupe with different turbo, injectors, boltons and clutch? I mean do you want to do a compression test? I'd let you because I know it's within specs at current mileage. But at the end of the day it's your money if you want to end up doing what I did except it would cost you a lot more, so.

Actually tried this technique and as soon as he started the car, heard that smf rattle - he's face was like this smiley - ... When someone doesn't know the difference between smf and dmf - there's nothing to talk about. Also, if people see the CEL lit - that's basically a deal breaker for most.

I would have to disagree in a way. That's like comparing oranges and dildos. Home improvement can actually increase a home's value. I know it has worked for me in the past whatever I've done with a home, it always worked in my favor. One just has to have at least a little bit of common sense and do not overestimate their abilities. With cars it's different but again, I haven't even asked for more than KBB listed it for... That's already loosing everything I have in it. So, even though it took me so long I have finally found someone who was on the same page with me, so I sold it.

You might have some luck with a vehicle consignment shop. They'll do the work to sell it for you, for a small percentage. You could also try Carmax, but the same rules above might apply.

Not always. Mine's lightly used with tasteful mods (my taste...).
I'll advertise it briefly before i revert to stock and trade it in.
i keep being disappointed with new models, may keep it another couple of years.

Of course not always, buying a used car is always a gamble, stock or not. Risk tolerance will certainly vary between buyers.

Those that don't want to risk buying a used car can go straight to dealership and sign papers on a new vehicle, although even then there are other risk types involved.

Craigslist usually used by people who are broke or cheap.
FB and sale sites would sell it much faster.

Also, if you use tags that don't relate to your ad, CL will block your ad without notice. Happened to me a few times. If you're selling a hyundai but use honda, toyota etc tags on teh bottom, they will block your ad. It's not as easy anymore.

Most of the people that would use craigslist, moved over to fb.

Main car people on there.

Like if you plan on selling cars you have to post on Craigslist also its critical. Lots of people still buy cars on Craigslist

Except for avery fine niche of rare and valuable antiques cars are NOT investments that grow in value. They are something to be used and enjoyed. You do things to it that you want. If along the way you find someone who values and covets the same things you did, consider yourself fortunate. One will never make back the time energy and funds expended on the Gens. That is not to say that its not worth it. That is relative to ones perspective.


I ve been around for a while, owned numerous vehicles, for the money spent nothing has brought me as much enjoyment performance and satisfaction as this car. Not even close.
