Am curious what the group thinks this car is worth. http://www.bjmotors....-sale-0028.html
It's always difficult to arrive at a value for a heavily modded car. I'm not the seller. Was thinking about making an offer, but don't even know where to begin.

Thanks

I would do this....

Take the value of a clean 11 first at equal mileage.  That's prob going to be around $80k or more realistically.

Now add up what all of those mods cost.  Factor in maybe 30% of the purchase value of the mods or so. The BL kit is around 26k... Maybe figure a total of 9-10k in resale for all of the mods...

I'd say maybe you could lob in an offer of 89 and see what happens.  You could offer base value of a clean stock 11, or even lower and try to pretend you believe there is diminished value, but they'll tell you to go F yourself since they are clearly selling a modded car as modded and you asking would prove you want that so "diminished value" arguments become BS :)

I'd bet that car is on consignment so will come down to owners tolerance.  At a certain point, though, he'll opt to go the return to stock route and part it out, most likely.  If that's fully not an option, I would suspect he'll be planning to hold out for a buyer that appreciates the build.

The one scenario I think is unlikely is getting away with grabbing all of that kit for a steal unless the guy is desperate, has no original parts, and needs money fast

A dealer will not pay anymore for the mods, why should a buyer. Having said that, if you like it and are happy with the quality of the upgrades then maybe high  eighties.

that car is defiantely on consignment....dealers do not want to deal with heavily modded cars like that.....those cars are a very tough sell....it takes a certain buyer to purchase a high horsepower car like that....I remember about a year ago a local guy wanted $130K  for his 100 hp car.....he got just under 100.....I would offer low to mid 80's.....

Start at $80 flat. Their reaction will be neg out of the box. Let them come back to you.

I'm sure they're willing to settle at $85 or less.

IMO the mods negatively impact the car's value.

Appreciate the thoughtful responses. Given the feedback I'm getting the seller is a bit above what I think the car is worth. Had offered in the high 80's and was rejected.

He'll be wishing he took that in a few months as the car sits.....

That car is also on ebay and has been for a few weeks, I believe they have it listed a few thousand less than what that link shows. $97.5k I believe.

I think low 90's is definitely in the ballpark.

2011 with 6500 miles, probably $78-80k
HRE wheels and tires - $4-5k
BoostLogic Kit - $9-11k
Body mods - $2-3k

It's not my style but if you really like the car I think you would be getting a very good deal at $92k.   Replacement costs if you had to build a car like this would be well over $105k
