Actually, it's my old 97 base 3000GT that was bought for me for my college graduation gift back in '99. When I bought my VR4, I gave the car back to my dad since I didn't buy it in the first place. The car has 52,000 miles on it, has NO DINGS, the paint is in excellent shape(no oxidation and mininmal chips and scratches). It had everything that an SL has besides the DOHC engine, electric climate control and 17" wheels. It's got leather seats, power sunroof, and a CD Changer. The car is in excellent shape!

Ok, NADA online says that car books for around $14,500, but that's HIGH RETAIL. My dad calls the local car lot where he bought the car and asks his friend what the book is on it. His friend said $16,000. I told my dad he was FUCKING NUTS!! I think his so called friend ass reamed him on the car in the first place. Knowing what I know now and what I didn't back then has given me a clear hind sight vision. The car has a "fake" SL badge on it that I SO DISHEARTENLY found out when I found 3SI(You can look up my OLD OLD posts to see this). I think that dealer sold my dad this car at an SL's price without him knowing anything about it. This is what I think....who knows!

Anyways, my dad has been trying to sell this car for over 8 months. He had recently priced the car to a few people at 15 FUCKING thousand dollars which I told him he'll die with the car at that price!:rolleyes: He thinks that the NADA book price is the end all pricing guide and follows it like the bible. I told him it's only as good as the person willing to pay the price.......which seems NOONE. And, I can't really say I blame them. If you was in the market for this car, what would you pay for it?

I just want to prove to my dad that I know a lil more about the 3s market than he does and that he's got it priced ENTIRELY too high!:rolleyes: Personally, I think I'd start at $12,500 and work down from there, but that's me. Again, this is a loaded 97 base model 3000GT.

I think the best way to price a car is to look at what others are selling for.

That is who you are fighting with to sell your car. It is basic economics of suply and demand. If the economy was better you would make more money on it. If it was summer you would make more money on it. etc...

i just ran a search on auto trader.

That is a good start about what market price is for the milage. There are some cheaper and some more expensive. It usually only means the ones cheaper are priced to sell quicky, the more expinsive ones probably won't sell.
