What was done to the car other than the paint and rims? More pics might help you sell it. Otherwise it is just an overpriced R3 with lame wheels.

Nothing else, what do you think is a fair price for the car? KBB says for private sale 27,900 and trade in $25k+.

Well, you have to consider that you can get a new R3 for 24-25k and a slightly used one in 21-22k range. Plus, the factory R3 wheels are very, very sought after and specific to the R3, so removing them and installing Foose (rebranded MHT wheels) actually take away from the value.

Is there anything done to the inside of the car? If not, then it just comes down to finding someone who just loves the look of the car. Most buyers however I think would go for a clean stock R3.

I understand about finding someone who would like the car and that is with any car. I know a new one is 33k sticker, we will see. And that is why i put OBO!

Thanks for the input.

Did you have to pay taxes on this car or anything? Personally if I won it, I would keep it, (even though I don't enjoy the mods that much) , maybe just put it under a car cover just as a keepsake. Maybe bring it to Sevenstock or something.

I think some shots of the car would help a ton.

im sure you have the money to get a normal paintjob and r3 rims and you will sell it much quicker. unless you want to put this aside in your garage for a year or 2 for me to come up with the money(:

$22k is a good price, esp if its still super low or zero mileage. Might have to advertise it to a wider audience than just here but I bet it'd sell close to that price
