Hehe Hello folks
Going to be trading in my 02's Civic Si Eggmobile in for a brand-spankin' new 06's WRX Impreza in the next week or two. I..........cannot......wait lol....
Took the 06's for a ride out at Schaumburg Subaru (I live in N. Illinois) a few days ago and was really impressed with it. The transition from engine to boost was almost seamless and smooth...Loved it.
The one thing that kinda rubs me the wrong way about the cars there is that they have like 10...1 is a limited with automatic and the rest are TR's with no options on it other than a spoiler. No foglights, No shortshifter. .No red, no white, etc.
The other thing is I dislike dealers lol...I walk in the door and I can just see the dollar signs exploding over their heads. I went in and got the "what can I do to get you to buy today" routine etc etc...
Folks think I should trade in my car (KBB is 9200ish and dealer was going to offer 9500) or sell it for maybe 12k with mods and wheels still on? Sales tax will be more without a trade but if i get enough cash for my honda to be > sales tax I'd come out ahead by a couple grand.
In anyone's experience would a dealer agree to install fogs/shortshifter on say, a TR as part of the sale? I'm buying the car either way lol.....but man I hate having that feeling of "OMG I LOVE MY NEW CAR mixed with...man I got boned" on the drive home lol
