    SO HOW MUCH SHOULD I SELL IT FOR? is this a sign that she is meant to be mine forever

    http://www.socalevo.net/threads/2238...FECT-CONDITION**


    ok so it seems that my clean as f*$k evo isnt selling now..

    maybe its how much i want (over 2k UNDER KBB)(even though nobody uses KBB)....maybe its that not very many people can get approved for a 30k$ used vehicle....

    idk...

    but this is getting stupid....its the cleanest evo on the streets for an 08' and even most 2013s lol....

    open for opinions....

    of course i dont want to sell it, and maybe the MITSU GODS want me to keep it....but money is tight right now and it will be a few more months before i can easily afford it again....

    HOW MUCH SHOULD I SELL IT FOR?

    READ THE AD CAREFULLY!!

    NO BULLSHIT!!!

    but please no pollution in this thread or i will just take it down....

    thanks!!!!

    the problem is we're in so cal where there are X all over the place including mine which is also WW.

    as far as pricing you should see what south coast and carmax will give you and go a few grand over that if you want a fast sale. if you think you're upside down my suggestion is to either hang on to it or take it for the team and trade it in for something you think you'll keep for a while. cars are seldom a good investment. i've lost thousands modding and getting new cars so i've slowed down tremendously doing both.

    Yeah, I think it's the color, and the fact that it's an 08 maybe.

    The problem is that there are too many X for sale. Add that to the fact that your is a less desirable MR (compared to a traditional manual) and the audience appeal is further dwindled. The price you are asking is more than what 2010 Evo X MR have gotten at trade-in. For example...a friend last year had to sell his beautiful 2010 Evo X MR Touring (with leather, navi, etc) for 30k to the dealer because no one else would bite on his asking price.

    Take the advice of the Rob up top.

    I think the best you could probably get for your car would be $24-26K at most. No matter how well kept the exterior of any car is, you are going up against depreciation, mileage, supply and demand.

    For example, someone looking to get a new Evo could save up a few grand more and get a new GSR, full warranty and all, in pretty much pristine condition. It doesn't matter if its been kept in immaculate condition from the inside out. the mileage, will always conspire against you. Plus the color isn't exactly a rare one. And with so many new Evos rolling out, supply outweighs demand.

    As car guys, we get so attached to our cars and put more value on them then what they are really worth in real life.

    You are better off keeping the car, or selling it at a loss. There is just no way around it.

    thanks for the opinions guys....

    i got great money for my evo8 and all the parts so maybe im expecting the condition of this car to offset all the parts money i got back before....

    either way im not upside down in this car so im not worried. and in a few months everything will be fine, just hate crunch time with bills....lol

    If it wasn't WW and was an '10 or higher, I would be interested.

    I'm actually watching the market for a MR to be my DD. I want a sub-$30K (after ttl), MR or SE with navi and the color dash. I'd consider a ralliart as well. I got used to the color on the wife's outlander dash so I can't do the all red thing. haha! I think I might have to wait a couple more years though. I'd even consider a Ralliart, but nobody has anything used with the sst trans with navigation in it for sale!

    If you can, try and keep it. If anything you will regret selling it. I'll use myself as an example.

    My first Evo was a 2003 GSR. loved that car and was in pristine shape. Traded it in for the 2005 MR. kinda missed the trivial I/C sprayer on it but whatever.

    The MR I kept in immaculate and pristine condition, like yours. just ask any of the old timers here. I had the JDM MR heads, tails, badges and wing. cosmetically from the outside, it looked spot on as a JDM Evo MR.

    Then I sold it. and down the line I regretted it.

    Now that I'm back in an MR, I'm not making the same mistake again

    I went to CarMax they offered 24k for my car Dodge offered 26k. Not good in my opinion.

    My car 2008 EvoX MR, Leather, Navi, Fog lights, keyless, polished brake leaver n' pedals. 33k miles or maybe 34k now.
