That being said... the time effort and labor required to install everything, WHICH IS NOT ADDED IN, more than makes up for the difference...

I think theres at least a couple grands worth of labor involved here... EASILY.

I guess now we are back to a good deal again... some people like a finished product, no fuss.

Yes labor does add a few thousand but not to the selling price. At the moment you have approx $9k in parts, lets say its 3 grand to install, thas about $12k. The thing with the parts is this, they do not add that much to the resale value of the car, the parts price alone decreases significantly since they are used. But you are not ridiculous in youre price. Youre not a deal but youre not a ripoff, youre in between.

Just as an example... I have someone interested right now who already has a WRX. Unfortunately now he cannot afford to mod his car...

He wants to sell his, and buy mine so that he can have all the stuff he wants done.... well, already done. To some people thats more important. Thats who I am selling this car to.

Those who want it done but either do not have the time, money or knowhow to do it.

Selling a modified/unique car does not apply, nor should it, to normal wholesale and retail car sales. Its a specialized market that some people are willing to pay that extra above "the market value" to get.

As i said before i agree with you on that point, some people are willing to pay extra for a vehicle with all the mods to a degree. You just have to find those people, and with this car you wont have a problem. I was just pointing out that the buyer will be paying $8k for around $12k in mods including labor, which isnt a bad deal, its just not anything to get excited about, thats all im saying. But ya you wont have much trouble finding a buyer, becouse some dont mind spending the cash, and others dont have the knowledge i have. But good luck with the sale.

12sec car for 24g's....sounds good to me. I have my own and i would rather mod it but look at it this way. The wrx is a performance vehicle. Not a grocery getter. Even though it does both very well u think SPEED not EGGS. so a finished product wrx for the cost of a new 03 wrx at msrp or so in actuality is a good deal.IMHO

not even... although I know of a few who are thinking along them lines... no matter how fast though... its still a Neon!!!

I would never go from AWD to FWD.... its hard enough going from AWD to RWD!

I am selling because my wife is not happy... I want a house.... and I need something that can be made faster, easier and for less money... ala Supra TT :D...
