...very nicely done - hope you're able to recover enough of the modifications to make it worthwhile...

How can we enter into price discussion with only 3 pictures? (-poke- @ the moderators) :)

Then again, this is a feeler thread. Lets see more pictures!

since you asked, given the market I would guess 40k would be tops, and that would be tough - you would need a buyer that wants your specific mods and not just an exige s

its a really nice car, but I can't see how selling it would be "economically sound", if you just want to move on to something new I would suspect you would take a bit of a hit on what you have invested

Nice looking car, but unfortunately mods usually equal to sunk cost at resale. You will never get what you have put into the car. Just keep it.

very nicely done.

But to answer your question....I would have to put the value at about 30K.

Your mods are great but you have to find the one person that has the same taste as you and wants your mods. If you do then I would say 34K is top.

How many miles on the car? Are there any issues. Show some more shots of the interior.....engine....boot...etc. More info helps us make more of dertermination.

If my son had a teaching job..he would buy it....he likes blue and wants an Elise. Want to trade for a blue Miata 99 Anniversary Edition? Just kidding...I know there is a 20K difference in the values.

Edit....look at Perryeyes car....he spent 80K on his and I dont think it has sold yet and it is in the 30K range. Modifying a car has it downfalls. One of them is resale value. the real mods that hurt are the mechanical mods. The buyer has to find someone to work on a oneoff car and if you expect the buyer to be one that fixes them for themselves..then you greatly reduce the potenial buyers and if someon can fix it themselves then they can do it themselves to a car they have. Builders like that do not generally value what others have done higher then the cost of materials.
