Re: trading my car?

Do they want cash in addition to the trade? Or at least for you to take over payments or something?

If not, what's wrong with the beemer? I mean, a beemer in a straight up trade for a V6 mustang? A 98 at that? Something's out of whack.

Now, if the car is in perfect shape, and they still want to do the trade, I'd jump all over it, sell the beemer and buy something else.

Re: trading my car?

as of right now its a straight up trade. they arent asking for any money or anything.

i was thinking of the same thing, selling it any getting something else. i might have to keep it for a while before that though just to see what its like. i do love BMW's.

Re: trading my car?

If this person is all for a straight up trade, then you should be able to definitely upgrade into a better car whether on trade or private sale of the beemer once you get it. I'm not a fan of beemers so I can't say keep it, but it'd be a helluva upgrade from a 98 v6....if for nothing else being only a year old and a beemer vs a mustang in quality.

Some not all my uncle had one and drove it years.. He's a pretty nice guy. It was best car he owned. He drove it across the country, then bought a jag when Ford owned them. Hasn't liked it as much.

Well of course not all of them...it's the same for every cult car. My godmother has a Z3, well she did, not sure what she has now.
