what do do??

Hi eveyone I have not posted in a while. This is my situation, I currently own a EA 5 speed s pac cfi series 1, its a good reliable car, spent some money on it, air, clutch, fresh paint other bits, good looking car.
The problem is I have always had my heart set on a wagon, storage, family, etc, and I think I have found one. This is what it is EBII s pac, 5 speed, 4 ltr, air, cruise, limited slip dif, s pac wheels, abs, cntr locking, tow pac, tint, it has 185 kms my EA has 275 and the head was done 10000 km ago. Its in very good condition interior perfect, exterior a couple of trolley dings and some oxidisation on the bonnet, colour is cardinel red (brother in law panel beater bonnet easy to fix). The guy wants $3000 for it, I would offer a little less if I was to buy. What does eveyone think? yes or no on the EB????
And how much should I put my EA on the market for????


Thanks


Sam

Sounds like you should go with the EB, it certainly has alot less K's on it than your EA. $3000 is pretty good, i think.

Re: what do do??

Yes id definitly go with the EB. Besides it is newer, it will be quicker, most likely be cheaper to run. Also as you said, you get the extra space in the back for storage, etc. So I would be definitly going for the EB

In regards to your EA, give us some specs on what it is, etc and might be able to give you a rough price.

Hope was some help

Sounds like a good upgrade for you Sam. If you can get $2k for the EA you'll be laughing.

Re: what do do??

I had a look at the EB last night checked everything and Im not satisfied, paint and body rougher than I thought, interiour is in good condition but its faded and worn, when reving the motor there was a bad vibration through the steering whats that???
If I did purchase it would cost $$$$ to bring it up to scratch. My Ea is in better condition I think I will keep it for know, at least I know the car and what it can do.

Re: what do do??

That's a bugger Sam. The vibration could even be the engine mounts, but the bodywork is what costs the big bucks.

If you are big on DIY, another option would be sourcing an auto GLi wagon (which is a plentiful and cheap model) and swapping the transmissions with the EA. Would cost time rather than money.
