Re: 1996 850R with IPD Motronics upgrade and Borla Stainless Steel Exhaust For Sale
"Fair" for KBB is defined as, ""Fair" condition means that the vehicle has
some mechanical or cosmetic defects and needs servicing but is still in
reasonable running condition. This vehicle has a clean title history , the
paint, body and/or interior need work performed by a professional. The tires
may need to be replaced. There may be some repairable rust damage."
That's a reasonable description of my car. In fact, I think my vehicle is in
"great" running condition. KBB price for "good" is $7,120.
