I think if you really wanna sell it for that 9500,your gonna have to widen your post on craigslist past your local area to within the state. I'm currently building my first DSM and with all the work I've put in, parts I have,work and parts i know I'm putting in I won't wanna ask for less than the 9000 also. I'm putting in a little more work than yours right now and know that no one in my local area will understand the value put in my 2g. On the other hand I also know that some value in it is sentimental and Imma get haters all day if I do decide to put it up. So with that said, I don't think you will get 9500 with it posted in your local area,but do believe you can get it or a decent trade with cash if you expand your zone. Good luck though

just saw your ad. CUH-LEAN CAR!

If i was you i would HOPE it was a "punk kid" buying this car, cause there is not way in hell someone with a brain that knows about DSMs will spend more than 6500 for your car. Thats just the sad reality. You can ask whatever the hell you want but it doesnt mean you will get it.

check this out

Yeah man, how's Oregon? I know there's value in the car and I'll stick to my guns. Right now I'm thinking my best chance though is to trade it for another car and then sell that car to get my money back. Something like an s4, m3, or along those lines. Plus I would get to kick around in a nice cruiser for a while before I sold it too.

The car scene BLOWS in eugene. Portland is too far to go see nice cars. I love it up here, lots of beer drinking and burger eating going on up here. :hellyeah:

stay positive though, shame the dsm community is gonna lose you. :notgood:

What a circus hahaha. I never thought selling a car would bring about such turmoil. Ad keeps getting flagged.... Someone just can't understand that I'm a persistent sob. If the guy above wants 20k for his car, then more power to him. That is what the car is worth to him. Maybe not to you, but that is the amount of money it would take to separate him from his car.

Quinton- I won't be out of the community. Just on hiatus haha. These cars are too awesome not to come back with another one at some point. If I'm ever up in Oregon I'll hit you up for a beer and a burger haha.

when i sell my car i am going to sell it for a good price too. Its all about supply and demand, the demand isnt so high in the bay area.. but the supply is very low. especially for 2gb guys like jacob here thats kept it very clean and nicely modified. Theres no way il just give mine away.. cause if someone WANTS it.. they barely have any other options. these cars arent dime a dozen so its a lot different in terms of the asking price compared to other cars.

well, if you're not in a hurry selling it, Price it what you think reasonable....
but the market value will determine how quick you sell the car...
good luck with the sale though, that g s x is sick

I'm tired of craigslist guys. I just got offered a 1999 Ford Escort zx2 in a straight trade because it has an exhaust and has low miles...................... Can't one of you just buy it? haha.

$8700 cash to a dsmtuner member. Considering dropping the price on craigslist as well, but then it loses trade potential...

Done deal man. haha.

Did you ever try mautofied.com?

I checked the place out and it seemed like more fast and the furious style cars than I cared to waste my time looknig at.

Case in point: 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier $8,000 Or best offer - 100366678 | Custom Show Car Classifieds | Show Car Sales

Did you ever try keeping it?

Ya know what, I have a set price in mind that I won't go below. If it gets to that point I won't sell it. But it just makes sense for where I'm at right now to let it go.

Lol. Yea, it kinda is that way but every now and then there's some tasteful ones. I'd at least put an add up and just tell them NO RICE, PLEASE! Hell, if you weren't all the way across the country, I'd offer up my TT. It's aviator gray with black interior which is super rare color and even more rare combination. It's a 225 (k04 turbo model) quattro 6spd. Only mods are a Forge dv and Eurodyne Maestro software (much like ecu flash or dsm link but costs $900, damn euros...LOL). Only reason I bought the software was because I originally had BIG plans for the TT because I picked it up when a drunk driver totaled my Evo. :( I figured I could just build the TT since I had a 1.8t gti before the EVO and was really familiar with them. Then I picked up a 1g and decided I could just LIGHTLY MOD the TT and build the 1g. Well once again, the 4g63 kept calling me back. I ended up comming across my current 99 gsx with a blown headgasket and the older guy had no idea what he had and I talked him down to $800! I've slowly been transfering everything over to the 2g from the 1g and just recently got rid of the 1g shell. I was going to put the TT up for sale and get a truck to daily, but that'd be awesome to have one 2g to build up the suspension and do a stroker and 3065 and build by current one all out drag....

OP, don't lower your price because of some of these clowns. I put mine on autotrader for 16k and had many offers and people wanting to put deposits down immediately. I decided since soo many people wanted it for that price and I really didn't want to sell it I raised the price to 24k firm. Guess what, I've had a few offers at that price... I chose to ignore them because I don't want to sell her.

Some customer at my work thought my GSX was yours online. He was asking "Hey isn't your Eclipse for sale?" I asked "Was it 9 thou?" And I was letting him know it wasn't mine, BUT the point is, it's the talk of the town :D

Maybe it's a sign to keep it? Or just return it to a subtle modded state and sell the goodies separately. People will rape your phone for that 35R, injectors, etc but not as a packaged deal, IMHO.

I'm not believing that the offer was legit.... at all. I'd sell all 3 of my DSM's as a package deal for 24k in a heartbeat!
