Your expectations are a bit high at 30k.
You'll be hard pressed in convincing someone to
Purvhase a used car with a price higher than its msrp

Good luck

You do realize that blue book on your car is $6,000? Mods are typically worth .50 to every dollar you spent...so by your math you've invested over 50k into a Dodge Neon?

Just sold my 2003 SRT-4 and have been pretty involved in the community for ten years. In general I'd even say $0.50 on the dollar for mods is too much. Probably more like $0.10 on the dollar, more if its done well, unless its a publicized build by high profile tuner (Underground Racing comes to mind). This build seems really nice but the price is off by at least a factor of two, I'm so sorry to say. -eek-

Idk whats soo funny about having a built car. And there is a lot of money in the car. Easily would make the .50 cents per mod 30k value. And if you have been in the community for 10 years you know 03s dont compare to 05 and dcr is a huge company that has 8 second srts lol. I dont need to sell or trade just seeing whats out there. All the people thinking its funny are ignorant. A lotus is a nice car with alot of potential but at the end of the day its still has its flaws and lacks alot of power. Not all of you have supercharged ones and even those dont make much power. I just want to build a 2 door next. If you dont like the car dont comment. Act like adults

Well I wasn't comparing my SRT to yours, but I guess I stand corrected? The difference from 03 to 05 is a whopping LSD and injectors (and accompanying factory tune for PCM). So, yeah, woah, way different? :scratchhead:

I got $4700 for my 03 with 155k miles and mostly stock with very few problems. Your car isn't worthless, but it's certainly not worth $30k here. You know you can get a used Viper for $30k? The value is just not there. I'm also aware of DCR's tube frame race only 8 second SRT. That has been in existence for almost as long as I've owned my car.

Good luck with your sale. :wave:

Okay last edit: The least you could do if you want top dollar for your car is to wash it, run some simple green over the engine bay, and hire a photographer. And put your front bumper cover back on!

Having a built car isn’t funny; a $30k Neon is, regardless of what’s been put into it.

At least your ad has a good amount of detail, listing of upgrades and pictures.

no comment needed on the video.."Regular Car Reviews"

In all seriousness I sold my "heavily modded" 1990 Nissan 300zx TT with 105,000miles on the odo for $5000. I just wanted it gone. You'll feel better when
you sell it....just let it go and don't part it out. I'd be surprised if you got more than $6000 for it. (90K miles :facepalm You've clearly had this car longer than you'd have liked and come to realize its a waste of time and money considering the performance it delivers. It's the tipping point. I reached mine and you have obviously reached yours.

I have not reached any tipping point. I was contemplating selling or trading for a 2 door. And as far as performance I havent been challenged really in this car at just mid boost. Its a mid ten second car. And I have already been offered 20k for it I didnt accept that. The long block alone is worth more than that. And I would never part it out. I was just seeing what offers I received but clearly ignorance is the main thing on this page. Lotus' are not that impressive stock. Modified is a different story but im not going to argue with anyone. Pointless

I was polite last night so I'll be polite again.

It might be quick in a straight line, but real cars need to be able to turn and brake.

Your expectations for a high-mileage car that doesn't look well-cared for aren't realistic.

Again, you're on the wrong forum. You'll get nothing but grief here. Even the moderators haven't cleaned up this "car for sale" thread.

You are definitely right, most of these people are just plain ignorant. You should try the ferrari forum. From my experience, they seem more grown up and enlightened! Their cars are also quite impressive
