    Hey guys,

    I am considering letting go of my Type R (want to move into a GTR) and wanted to get this forum's thoughts on what the asking price should be.

    Car is FBO with quality parts (PRL intercooler, PRL Catted Downpipe, PRL Stage 1 Intake, KTuner V1, Remus Exhaust, Turbo Blanket) and suspension work (Eibach Sportline Springs + Camber Arms). Car would have approximately 40K miles on it with all service records. Would be sold on factory wheels + all seasons (I would sell my Rays separately).

    All mods were installed by either PRL Motorsports or by R/T Tuning, both highly reputable shops. I also have a custom tune from Derek at IMW Motorworks I would throw in.

    I'm thinking $30-32K would be reasonable but let me know if I'm wrong. I know labor + parts are heavily discounted but open to hearing everyone's thoughts.

    Also, if anyone is interested in a FBO car, hit me up!

    That’s too high given the mileage.

    The absolute best way to maximize your profit is to put it back to stock and part the mods out.

    Then sell/trade the car as stock. Good luck.

    Thanks, I just checked KBB and they're saying $25-$28K for a trade-in value (stock of course).

    You might clear 30 selling private if everything is returned to stock. But not sure if all the aftermarket parts will net 2k.

    It’s still a screaming deal for FBO at 32 but it’s hard to find a right buyer. Post ads nation-wide?

    Don’t forget if you trade it in on the GTR, you’ll get the tax credit in most states.

    Taxes on $28k is no small chunk of change.
    I fully believe you will net much closer to what you want by parting it out. Especially since you have wheels to sell on top of all this!

    As someone who has traded a lot of cars, it’s slower this way, but you will make so much more money by being patient and doing it right.

    I’m going to set it up with a basic scenario. Check your state, every one is a little different:

    Dealership grants $28,000 for your trade.
    Car you want to buy is $52,000.

    Let’s say the tax rate for an automotive purchase is a flat 7%.

    In most states, you only pay taxes on the difference. So instead of paying tax on $52,000, you’d only be paying tax on $24,000 ($52,000 minus $28,000 in this case).

    At a full rate of 7%, that is a difference of $1960 in tax savings. It takes some of the sting out of getting a little bit lower offer on a trade-in, and can even make it more worthwhile in some cases. Making your car the best as possible (clean, stock) before you trade in, is essential.

    Thanks for all the help guys.

    Unfortunately I don't think a part-out is possible in my case. I don't have a garage or the time to do the work. All of my mods were installed professionally so it will probably cost me more to pay someone to take off everything and return to stock than it is worth.

    If I could I would! We only have space for 1 car and only need 1 car (we live in the city). I'm looking for a 2012-2015 DBA. Prices seem to be softening a bit on these.
