Should I do the trade?

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....

I have:
A 2000 Acura Integra GS 2dr automatic
Power everything, sunroof/moonroof everything works NOTHiNG WRONG WITH iT (just took it to get everything inspected again yesterday to make sure)
Brand new brakes (pads and rotors), 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. And just had oil changed, tires rotated 2weeks ago. Also has aftermarket JVC CD player, full Rockford Fosgate system and wiring (12"P2 subs and 400watt 2channel amp) I also had installed a very precise 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.

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 wrong with it cosmetically besides one of the front light covers is missing.
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 work to it for a while. 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, 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, or would he be losing out? 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. The handling in it isn't as precise as mine is, but thats just the car itself and my beings used to what I am.

What should I do?!

And ALSO again, I am not including my system with the trade because he doesn't have an quivilant system which was part of my deal in the first place. I told him Id want to take my JCV cd player as well as his is stock and I need the hookup.
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....

According to auto trader in my area, your Acura is worth from $9000 to $13000 depending on mileage and condition. The Mustang is worth from $6500 to $11000. Your geographical location will be different price ranges, I am sure, but mostly what this is saying is your car is worth more. Unless you just have to have a convertible, I'd probably stick with yours.

You didn't mention the miles on either car, but from what you've described I'd keep the Acura.

Honestly if I was you I'd keep your car. You know the history of the vehicle, and your car is nicer and gets better gas mileage. Not to mention that your car is Honda made so it will last much longer than the Mustang.
