Oh My God!!an Overpriced 240sx?????

Ok, I am looking at a car right now a 240sx limited Edition 1992 convertible with about 40k miles on it, it is in almost perfect condition physically i have not been able to have the priviledge on driving and according to the Bluebook value it is only worth about 5500 that is the dealers price. The place im looking is asking 11,900. I need to know is that a bad deal im going to attempt to bring it down, and im hoping for 8000 or lower. reply as soon as possible please.

Don't buy it unless they sell it for $5000-6500 because you are getting ripped off badly You can find other ones

You could buy a 99 integra GSR with that money which could beat any 240

like he said. tell the dealership its only worth $4000 - $5000 and what they are asking is rediculous. well... more tactful then that ofcourse.

The only car I know of is the 05 Mustang GT convertible. How did they manage to pull that off, aluminum supports for the top?

hey if youre looking into getting a 240sx you should try for the 94 and up years. if youre into racing theyll perform a little better because they all come equipped with a stock lsd. but then again if youre just looking for a daily driver any year would be fine i geuss.

First off...94 was only convertibles...not really what you want if you're getting into racing. 2nd of all...they did NOT all come w/LSD...only a few had the rare LSD already in there...and most of them had leather that goes along w/the ABS...it was all part of a package...at least it was for the 95-98 S14's...I know the S13's had LSD available too..and I think HICAS also...but not sure which ones got that setup...

For serious racing...S13's are the way to go...the coupe's weigh 2600 lbs, the hatchbacks weigh 2700 lbs...the S14's start at 2850 lbs...so they are a bit bulkier.
