Haven't been here in ages but I see this forum is still very active which is great to see. I haven't had much time to enjoy my coupe over the past couple of years due to commuting and work schedule so I'm looking to sell but could use some help with pricing. I've checked the M Coupe Buyer's Guide which has helped some.
I even went to the dealer and they are only offering 9-10K trade on a new car.
Here is some info about the car and recent service:
I purchased CPO in 2004 and the car had 39,000 miles. It now has 92,300 miles.
Overall condition of the car is good with good paint. Wheels have usual dings and scrathches given age.
When I purchased the car there was nothing that indicated any accidents but we found out a door and front quarter panel was repainted. With this repair, 2 wheels on that side were replaced but with the pre-2001 non-shadow wheels
Somebody backed into me a few years ago which resulted in new hood, bumber and lights so front end repainted
TCK S/A coilover installed around 45K
Subframe repair also done at 45K by Mr M. car in NJ
At 80K, valve adjustment, oil pan gasket and valve cover gasket changed. Antifreeze/coolant flushed/changed and brake fluid flushed/changed.
Oil changed every 5K
Still has original clutch
Brakes not changed since I bought it
Recently dealer looked over car and said front control arms and bushings should be replace due to wear and lose steering over bumps
I'd be happy to get between 16-17K. Does that sound like a reasonable price? Thanks!
