as long as it doesnt have some ridiculous bodykit and outrageous paintwork it will be fine.

It's not a dreaded SULEV is it?

Front looks fine.
Now where are rear and wheels?

Priced aggressively

Stock, I had to rip every single mod off my Zhp before selling. And $15k is dreaming for a 325.

There's an art to pricing right. Not too low and not too high.

Too high will scare people off thinking your price is crazy. You'll never even hear from them.

You do not get money for mods. They were for you. Most buyers view them with some element of negative. Like you raced the car. They'd rather you were grandma driving a completely stock car to the grocery store twice a week. That way they know the car wasn't beat.
For instance, then there probably wouldn't be trouble with the rear subchassis sheet metal tearing with grandma at the wheel.

No one is interested in what you "think" the car should look like. If they're looking for a certain car they want it to look like the car they're looking for.

I never buy a car that's modded. Whenever I see a car with an aftermarket bumper I immediately get suspicious. Does that mean the car was involved in an accident? Maybe not, but immediately mark it off the list.
