Default I need an appraisal

On this 2000 V6 Mustang.



I've spent OVER $5000 on this car.

I just don't find it interesting anymore.

I've taken care of this car with regular oil changes, fixing all the mechanical issues I've encountered and some cosmetic problems. My mechanic tells me that the car will last a long time with all the work I've put into it.

You have a wholesale value of $2,750.00 and a Retail Value of just under $5,000.00

Assuming a clear title, I would think you could get around $3,000.00 for it. That's out here in CA though, and I am a BMW Dealership Sales Manager, so I tend to look at vehicle values in a very clinical way. As a trade in value, I would give about half that ($1,500.00)

You may find someone to just fall in love with it and get more.

Do car dealers ever take into account the Mods and upgrades someone has put into the car?

Mods/upgrades do not increase the value of the car and can actually hurt value as the parts can not be traced as factory and quality/durability becomes an issue. It is expected that a car be maintained, so repairs are not considered. The mods you've done are so minute, that it shouldn't hurt value. Also the car doesn't have 220 hp, 200 bhp tops would be more accurate.

As stated you're looking at around $3000 average, $4500 tops.

Which Roush seats? In the video I see cheapy seat covers.
You don't have 220 hp. I'm gonna say 180 hp.

I'd say you have $2500-3000 on a good day. The paint job kills it.

Individuals MIGHT, but Dealers certainly don't. The reason is that a Dealership has no real idea of the quality of the parts, quality of the install, or how hard the car has been driven.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

I don't see how those are ROUSH leather seats either, but they look very clean and like new.
