Over Priced?

My friend Jeromy is looking into a 99 Acura Integra. It has some mods to it. Rims, Front kit, side skirts, screwed up tint, old coloration. You can't tell if it's light blue or silver. The car was originally green. It's OK but, it's not impressive. It's missing the back body kit. It's an automatic. The dealer wants $7,300.00. I think it's not worth that much. What are your views?

I'd give it to him if he included the rear body kit at no cost... it just looks TERRIBLE without it.

but amazing with it.

Waste of money. 4 door auto, with modifications of unsure quality. Pass.

I think you need to shut up. I didnt even say anything about it being a Honda. Dont dismiss my non-baised points, too.

You said unsure quality, recap, Acura is tied in with Honda, so what do we say about quality and reliability, ding ding ding, you guessed it, its superior

That's my point to him as well. Jeromy wants to paint it, put lambo doors on the front and suicide doors on the back, complete the body kit, add neons, and really rice it up.. I keep telling him you don't rice up 4 doors.

Hmmmm....I would try and get him to come down on the price to saaay...$6700 or a little below that. I would have to say that the automatic is a turnoff for me, as well as the 4 door body.

We are talking to Oomba here , and you should have clarified because it seemed like you were dissing the quality of Integras and Civics

I forgot, 99integra is aloud to flame me, but not the other way around

And when did I say anything about Shivics in this thread? Or any mention of them at all by anyone?

based on my experiences working at a car dealership as a car detailer (and bsing alot with the used car manager) dealer prob only has about 5000-6000 in that car if it was an auction car because used cars at auctions are going pretty high right now and they are tough to get. if it was a trade in he prob only has about 3500-4000 in it because the used car manager always gave about half of what he would be asking for it. IMO id offer about 65-67 if he wanted it.
