| | nice '00 WS6, mods, reasonable price?
My 2000 T/A WS6 has ~50,000 miles, had 21,000 when I bought it in Sept '09. It's my DD & I've babied it while also modding it. It's not "Excellent", but damned close - a few rock chips and a cracked rear light. Interior is like flawless, changed out Monsoon sound for Kenwood Excelon 995 head unit, Hertz Energy speakers and Alpine amplifier. Automatic tranny. Following the guidelines, I find KBB has $11840 (good) to $12365 (excellent), NADA has $10050 (clean trade-in) to $12525 (clean retail).
Done in Sept. 2010, gave 340 rwhp
Kooks stainless L/T & catted y pipes
Borla adjustable stainless exhaust
I figure this stuff used & parted out is worth about $1400
Done in Feb. 2011, gives ~435 rwhp (could tune for more but I don't want to push the stock motor)
Vortech V9 HO S/C (9 lbs boost)
SLP lid & UD pulley switched out for stock
Prosport EVO boost & wideband AFR gauges
I figure this stuff worth about $2200 ($2000 for supercharger)
BMR performance front & rear sway bars, adjustable panhard, boxed subframe connectors, drive tunnel brace, control arm relocation brackets, Bilstein shocks.
I figure this stuff worth about $500
Parts I still have (but not on car): UD pulley & belt; Vogtland lowering sport springs; Tokico gas shocks; shock tower brace; stock WS6 sway bars & panhard.
This stuff maybe worth another $200
Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 tires with lifetime balance & rotation, have 5000 miles and have been rotated once. 3 year (transferable) alignment program that goes until August 2014.
Don't know that it adds to price, but surely is a bonus.
Negatives: A/C leaks and needs to be recharged two ro three times during south Texas summer; repair estimate was $1200. It was like this when I bought it in 2009 and doesn't seem worse.
Based on all of this, would it be reasonable for me to ask $15,000 with everything included - or even $16,000? I'm not desperate to sell, I've just decided I don't enjoy it as much as I thought I would & I'd rather get into a "luxury" car.
Many thanks to any who made it through all of this rambling and I appreciate your advice.
