GT resale values
I now have put both GTs on the market trying to get the best price I can for private sale. I have been looking for two replacement vechicles for a couple of weeks. I have shopped the cars to a couple of dealers now, I will say the news is all bad.
The orange one is only getting offers of $43k, this cost me $72 seven months ago, now has 22 thousand k on it.
The silver one is getting $46.5k offers, this was $64 three months ago, 6500k on it.
I have never seen cars come back this hard in my lifetime, the Clubbie was traded on the silver one, it cost me $55k, had it seven months, traded it and got $47 back on it with 13000k on it. Dealers were at least interested in it, these people ive spoke to all cringe, and I think the price reflects that.
I am about to unload them, as I look at it, the price only gets worse the longer I hang on to them. As the payouts are $55 each car, I now have to find the extra money to tip in to pay them out.
This whole FPV experience has been a disaster from the word go, 522 is still using oil on the new engine, used about half a litre per thousand, thats the same as it used from new.
I will update the prices and what I do get for them when I do the deals on them, I am getting hopefuly better prices tommorow, but I cant see the same dealer improving it to any respectable figure, THEY ARE WORTH WHAT THEY ARE WORTH. If any GT owners doubt these figures, take it to a dealer as an excercise, find out what they are rearly worth.
