'06 Shinka FS feeler

I am VERY seriously considering selling my '06 Shinka and picking up a motorcycle and a beater. I've got a feeling this car is not an easy sale in europe.(outside of perhaps the American presence around the bases like mine)

I'm a bit unsure of what European market value would be, even if there was interest in it. Kelly Blue Book gave something like ~$15K for private party and ~$10K for trade in IIRC.

What does anyone think about the possibility of selling the car out here(as far as Euro market is concerned)???

I checked on a Croatian website,and the price for a 2004 6sp ,170kw with 18,000 klm's 15,000 euro, then ,at the other end of the scale, 117,000 klm;s for 12,700 euro.Hope this gives you an idea.

Would you be willing to sell the rims only? That is, if they're in a good state...

My Shinka wheels aren't in the best condition anymore

no i wouldnt, and no they arent in that kind of shape anyway.

tell ya a secret... the rumor has been for years that the shinka wheels are a slight shade different than other models... if you put them side by side when cleaned and waxed to perfection... you can only see a SLIGHT shade difference at an angle... the whole Shinka wheels "thing" has been totally fueled proprgated and made up, by ppl

Well when I compare my Shinka wheels with regular 8 wheels there's a huge difference. Shinka wheels are darker and more shiney
