Selling the car, standard or modded??

hey there,

Re: Selling the car, standard or modded??

i belive if you sell a car in its standard condition it appeals to a larger market, an elderly person will not buy a car with mods hanging off it but a younger person will buy a stockie & mod it themself

Kodar whats the next toy going to be

Advertise it as is and then if people ring ask how they want it.

Re: Selling the car, standard or modded??

You could have advantages in both way's,
Standard, you will have better luck off loading it to someone that isn't after something that draw's attention,like the older generation,
Modded,as is. you will attract the younger market that think, WOW that thing is wicked, I would try your luck as it is.

Re: Selling the car, standard or modded??

Why do mods to a car you only keep for 12 months? Why only keep a car for 12 months? I don't know about other people, but I get attatched to a car and just don't want to get rid of it, especially if it hasn't given you any dramas.

Re: Selling the car, standard or modded??

yeah thats a point as well,

its just a psychological thing i got, i mean the car has only given me one problem at the start and that was when they forgot the assembly pin in the differential, besides that it has brought many smiles to my face.

To be perfectly honest this is the hardest one to sell, my audi and holden and other previous cars were a breeze to sell, this one has a special place which is why ill return to the ford oval! however the longest i have had a car in my 4 years of driving is 16months so ill just have to stick to that track record

Re: Selling the car, standard or modded??

do you own a house? if not it sounds like you could afford one so maybe keep the car and get a house instead. if you do already own one then enjoy your new merc!!! i know i would!
try unique cars magazine or just trade it straight in to save the hassles.
