    I'm gettin tired of my car. I wanna have some extra cash, and this car has treated me well. With only a window motor and inner antenna ever failing on this car... it's by far, been the best car I've ever owned.

    I wanna do something different... something cheaper to own.

    This really isn't a for sale thread... even though it'll drag on here, but I just want to get some opinions.

    What do you think my car is worth? Paint is decent with only a few minor door dents that I've painted over with touch up paint. It also has curbed rims which you won't notice unless you're looking at them. The front pads were done in October 04, and the rear pads/rotors were replaced in August 05. Timing belt was done at 60 or 65k miles.

    It has 80,300 something miles on it with an Intake and a rear strut brace, along with a contoured shift knob.

    The Kenwood deck will stay with it along with the 1/4" kenwood tweeters, 6.5" kenwood speakers in the door, and the 6.5" blaupunkts in the rear.

    The tires will probably need to be replaced, ES100s don't last that long. I've had them on since April of 05 and were rotated every six months.

    Factory options include power windows, power mirrors, spoiler, tilt, cruise control, cold AC, hot heat, fog lamps, blah blah.

    Based on the description, what would you guys pay for a 2000 Si with 80,300 miles?

    I'd think 7500-8500 +/- would be a fair deal, which I believe is what I still owe on it.

    mint ones go for about 8k... so given the body dings and what not, i'd say 7500 obo would be a fair asking price.

    That's about what I figured. Another 3 months that'll be about what I owe.

    It'd be mint if it wasn't for the parking lot at Ingram Books. I hate that place. :(

    Maybe it's an SI thing, my old DX was 105K and my old LX was also 105K

    60K for a timing belt on a 2000+ car sounds low. but it could be a B series thing.
    still hard to believe.

    I had mine done at like 94k, but I was also trying to stall thinking I would swap the head. Now I'm thinking about selling the car outright.

    Aug or Sept of 2010 is the last payment. I refinanced it July of 05.

    Given a few more months I could sell it for fair value and have about a grand extra on what's left.

    If I can find something with 120 a month payments, I don't see how keeping a car I'm paying 250 for right now is in my best interest financially.

    No I have good credit... I just paid wayyy too much for the car. (Here's where B will say I told you so)... but it didn't matter, I wanted the car at the time. Three years later I want something cheaper to own and drive, but just as reliable.

    I was thinking about high balling it to some Mustang guys who might want a daily/winter beater. lol

    Well, I dunno. Depends on who I can talk into buying it. lol

    My payments WERE 300 a month... but I owed too much on it prior to refinancing it to sell it.

    Anybody want the above described car for 8300?
