How much do you think I could get for my car?

Ok so....

Im confused about what to do. I really like my car. Ive put alot in it but... it just turned 70,ooo mi. I wanted to keep it pay it off save up and just buy another car later on. Today, however, I dont know why I did it, but I did, I stopped in the nissan place and they had 1 of the new altima coupes there. Ive always wanted a g35 coupe but being the altima is brand new and looks about the same and cheaper, I think Id like it better. Plus it has a lot of new stuff like the start button for the engine and I cant keep affording the gas for the the mustang. Anyways Now I want it. But I cant afford to have another car payment. So Ive been thinking about selling the stang. With as much as I have put into it I wonder what someone would offer me for it. Am I being stupid?? Should I keep it? Sell it?

Re: How much do you think I could get for my car?

If it is paid off then definately keep it. That is a mistake I made and wish I could go back and change. If you cant afford to pay the gas in the stang and you have no car payment then you definately wont be able to handle a car payment.

Re: How much do you think I could get for my car?

what ever kbb value is... thats what its worth. Modifications dont add onto the resale value... someone may pay a little more with the mods but you cant count on that.

Its worth 12,500-15,000 I would say~

I say keep the mustang until it is yours outright, then decide what to do with it.

An altima is a meh car... at least the mustang gets attention... far more guys like girls that drive a mustang rather than some altima.

I say keep the mustang too...

but, just out of curiousity, since you brought it up, what exactly is the point in a push button starter inside the car?

Re: How much do you think I could get for my car?

keep the mustang.

if you sell it, you will be losing a ****load of money (every cent you put into it).

if you want a beater... then get a beater.

price of altima > price of gas

Re: How much do you think I could get for my car?

Is it that hard to turn a key though? Personally I just see the push button ignition (especially in a car like the Altima) a novelty.

Push button INSIDE any car is a useless novelty...its just as difficult to push that stupid button as it is to turn the key...

I understand the usefullness behind a keyless remote starter (such as being able to start the car in the middle of winter without going outside), but not the stupid in-car push button starter...

Re: How much do you think I could get for my car?

Have you considered buying a beater instead to drive around on rainy days, back and forth to work, etc?

That could actually save you money in the long run. Then you could keep the stang without having the debt of two car payments. It's all about what you can afford really.

Yeah I did mean In-Car starters. The automatic/remote starter was the best investment I made on my last car, winter driving became a lot better

Re: How much do you think I could get for my car?

whats KBB Private Party value for your GT in your area?

mine bb'd at $9,955 for private party, 7,5k for trade-in value.

btw i agree, get a beater that you can drive the piss out of, spend ~$20/mo on insurance, and generally not give a ****.

Only buy a new 350z the older ones are just sad... they are not very fast at all. The brand new ones run mid 13s which is much better.

Personally, I'm a Saturn girl kinda guy. Because her parents probably got her the car, so she is just a bit spoiled and maybe just a touch girly, but not overly because it is..well..a Saturn. But it has to be clean and in good shape to show she is appreciative of what she was given...have I put too much thought into this?

Re: How much do you think I could get for my car?

I like girls that drive trucks. So I started dating my girlfriend, even tho she didn't have a truck. Then I told her to buy a truck or I would dump her. Guess what. She bought a truck. I am awesome.

Tiff's GT is what first led me to her...I won't lie lol.

You see a girl get into an 04 GT that's clean...that says something.

i dont think its just the peak hp that makes them better, i think nissan revamped the entire powerband. every thread ive seen on any site about 350z are people stating night and day differences between the 07 models and everything else.

No Thomas, you're wrong. Peak horsepower is all that matters, ever.

Ok dammit, so I agree you with you. There, I said it.
