How much should I ask for my vert?
 
Actually it is my daughters. Second owner, bought it 2 years ago from a family friend. Everything is original, no re-paint/accidents, 119,000 miles. Original SoCal car. Premium, sand leather, nav, HK sound. A no stories car, 325ci, 2002.

What are these going for? Thanks

Probably about what you paid for it 2 years ago. Maybe a bit less for additional age and miles. What did you pay for it?
325, automatic, no sport package, might not be the most desirable model. Looks clean, I'd guestimate around $6-7k
assuming everything works

I wish I could get what I paid for it but I don't think that will happen. The car had 9x,xxx miles when I bought it and I paid $12k for it. I was hoping for around $8k. Maybe I'm too optimistic?

You could ask 8K. Might get it. Might need to be flexible. $2k/year depreciation is not too bad. Better than the original owner got. You crossed the magic 9xxxx to 1xxxxxx mark. If you can document the car was well maintained this should not be a big issue, but it might be for some. I don't know the socal market, around here a vert gains value in the spring :excited:
I assume your daughter wants/needs a new car. I'm not sure why. . .

All service records, everything works. The mileage is an issue for some but I have an E46 that I bought new and now has 225,000 miles and runs perfectly.

It's always convertible weather in SoCal.

Did you check kelley blue book kbb.com, or cars.com, or autotrader for pricing? Those sites will help too.

Bradford 10-31-2012 01:11 PM

Yes I did, thanks. Just thought there might be some people on here that had bought or sold a similar car recently with some actual sale prices.

probly around 7.5-8k range. ask for 8.5k and see what happens. put it on craigslist.

Check our www.cargurus.com as a quick source of what used car dealers near you are asking for a similar model. I just bought a 2005 330Ci and found the site invaluable.

I paid $10k even for an '02 330Cic, sport, premium, 23,000 mile, 1-owner FL car 2 years ago. If that's any help. Same color as yours too.

Wow, you stole that car assuming nothing was wrong with it!
