Okay, heres the deal, I am thinking about trading my car. I put it up on craigslist and have been talking to and met someone about trading it with them. So here are the stats....
A 2000 Acura Integra GS 2dr automatic
Power everything, sunroof/moonroof everything works. There is a small hole in the exhuast that will only cost $50 to get fixed, but the guy said its not required as of right now, its not hurting anything. (just took it to get everything inspected yesterday and thats the only thing that was wrong AT ALL mechanically)
Brand new brakes (4pads and 2rotors), just had tranny fluid flushed and replaced, new timing belt, and brand new FlowMaster SS Custom muffler ALL done just under a month ago as well as a couple other small upgrades. Had oil changed 2200 miles ago, 800 miles left. Also has aftermarket JVC CD player, full Rockford Fosgate system and wiring (12"P2 subs and 400watt 2channel amp, not including with trade because deal was from the start will only include if trade in has equivilent system, also taking my cd player) I also had installed a very precise unique custom cop alarm w/LCD screen remote that cost me $500. I've put alot of money into this car within the last couple months alone.
It does have some very monor cosmetic issue (2 small dents, small piece around back break lights had to be fixed and it grey primer, scrapes on under front bumper from running into a curb)
Also has 125k miles.
He is offering to trade....
A 1998 Cherry Red Mustang White top Convertible V6 Automatic
(not a GT V8
if it was I wouldn't need to ask this question Id do it!! LoL)
Everything works, nothing AT ALL wrong with it cosmetically besides one of the front light covers is missing. (Paint is great, no rust or corrosion, clear coat still very nice)
He said nothing was wrong with it performance wise that he knows of, I took it for a test drive, the only thing is I think it has a warped rotor or something along those lines because it shakes when you hit the brakes. But thats the only thing I found wrong with it so far, I want to take it to a mechanic for inspection just in case before anything is final anyways.
Everything in it is stock (it is very quiet
im used to my flow now haha) He had oil changed 2000 miles ago as well. He hasn't really done any upgrades or add ons to it. He said he did get new brake pads and rotors when he bought it 2 years ago. Thats all I really know about the car at this time. Oh, and when I went to drive it, the shifter was a little weird (it worked fine just seemed "heavy" maybe thats normal, is it?? I might just be too used to my car.)
So, my question is, should I go for the trade, is it worth it on my part or would I be losing out on more than I should? Is the name of a stang worth giving up the great condition and reliability if my newer ac? Im not sure what to do, I like his car a lot cosmetically, kinda weird to drive though because Im so used to my really small ac, but that just takes getting used to. The handling in it isn't as precise as mine is, again, just the car itself.
What should I do?!
Should I ask for cash with the trade if I go for it, or trade even?
If anybody reading this knows alot about mustangs, do you think my 12" subs in a custom box (not exactly sure of measurements) would fit in his trunk, it is very tiny compared to my hatchback lol
Here are pics of my car....
No pics of his..
