I used to have a 05 350Z and I was able to dump it quick. Track, nav W/ leather, twin turbo kit, few other mods. Sold for $35K

At least you're looking for the right color !! Talk to " Z-dculus "... he'll tell you all the differences.

CO is a very fast color. good luck selling your 03. have you considered putting the stock rims on and selling the aftermarket ones to a 350z forum member??

You really never get your money's worth when selling a modded car, most people will refuse to pay added price of the extra goodies you have put on your car unless its Nismo Edition or some crud. Happened to me=/

Good luck, and welcome to the turnip farmer's fan site.

Not like the Elise is doing a lot better. An 05 is selling for what, 25k now? :(
That sounds on the low side for normal milage - non salvage cars - guessing more like 29K and also e-bay auctions are not a gauge of resale if that is what you are looking at, most have hidden reserves and most are not serious about selling under the reserve - a lot are dealerships trying to drive up bids

Absolutely kestrel74 :) I always thought the lines looked somehow different when comparing a CO to other colors
