FS: H&R Sport Cup Kit non-m ($550 shipped)

MY 2000 328Ci currently has the H&R Sport Cup Kit installed. The setup was installed about 3-4 months ago.

I have found a new setup that seems to work better for me.

I paid $750 shipped to me so now I'm looking to get $550 shipped (48 states) for the setup


PRICE DROP!!!!!

460 SHIPPED IN US

Now I'm selling them for 600 plus shipping.

I didn't realize how much the price had dropped since I bought mine.

The following pic is with the suspension installed

no doubt that you did.....thank you for the bump.

Im sure you only got the race springs though, and you will be looking into struts in a few months that will run your around 3-400 depending on quality

My KIT includes springs AND struts

Im sorry if you felt your offer was fair.

I indeed did say "shoot me some offers" and I declined your offer, thank you though

As for $600 + shipping that was the starting price.

If you would like a new kit tirerack.com will gladly help you with that.

However if you want to go the cheap route check this setup out:

I'm just going to throw my 2 cents on a trend I've been noticing lately. There used to be a time when members were concerned with low-balling fellow members and respecting sales prices as long as they were reasonable. I think this thread was on the right track when we were communicating to the OP what the kit sold for new today and what a reasonable price would be based on much much use/miles his particular kit has seen.

When did the last sales price become the norm? So let's say a member needs to leave the country and clean up their garage and decides to give this kit away for free, will that become the norm then? To accept free as payment for any kit sold there after?

Having said that, here's an observation for the OP - When selling a product, you need to do some research prior to slapping on your sales price. Potential buyers will loose faith in you when they feel you are trying to rip them off. On the flip side, you're trying to get paid for what your product is worth.

The first thing you want to do is learn how much the product sells new for TODAY (this is very important). Second, you need to evaluate the use (time/mileage) the product has seen and assess a reasonable sales price. For a used product, 10-20% is the nominal depreciation regardless of how much or how little its been used. Then, product condition and market drivers (sales trends, etc) should be factored (not followed).

I think $520 +/- is a good baseline (considering this kit is valued at $650). Shipping whether included or not is up to you and that's a number you can play with.

My opinion is neutral and unbiased as my statements are not in favor of any particular party.

Sorry for the threadjack and good luck with sale.

pat followed with your 2 cents are my 2 words......THANK YOU

I figure $520 would be considered a good street value for this setup
