Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

Here's his c/l ad
http://albuquerque.craigslist.org/cto/1064810794.html

It's an SH (that's the "best" for the 5th gen isn't it?)

He said he'll probably do the trade if I throw in around $1000 (which I don't have)

IDK though, it seems like it should be an even trade. His mod list is;

drilled/slotted rotors all around w/ ceramic pads. Sway bars, intake and 18's.

Mine if you don't already know is
JDM One Piece headlights
JDM Side markers
(maybe) JDM Clear Tail Lights
Carbon fiber shift knob
DC front upper strut
rear lower strut
17" Kosei Racing rims
GReddy Power Extreme exhaust
DC Header
Big Man Front End
Side skirts
Rear Lip
LED Tail lights (bulbs)
HID conversion kit
Lowered
*NEW*
Driver Side Window Motor
Windshield
Clutch
Radiator
Thermostat
Front Tires

(faults)
some small dings
primered
exhaust needs to be re hung (better)
right side of back bumper hangs
small crack in front bumper
rims have curb rash/clear coat coming off
headlight housings have clear coat coming off on driver side only at the top
d/s (inside) door handle trim broken.

--------------------
HIS (faults)
dents/hole(s?) on front bumper. Other than that who knows.
Anyone have CARFAX that I could get a report from on his car?

So what do you guys think? To trade or not to trade? I really don't want to put out an extra 1000 for the trade. Especially since he hasn't said anything about the clutch yet.*

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

lol. Maybe I'll see if he wants to keep the rims and tires and i'll keep mine. Plus I'll bet the tires he has are the ecsta ast or w/e.

Anything that I should look out for on a 5th gen?

*EDIT* Does the 5th gen actually have leather or is it pleather?

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

Correct me if I'm wrong but SH model had color match different sideskirt. That looks like a base on some ugly wheels. $500 for that stereo is a bad joke. Who initiated a trade?

Ah unless you did the rotor conversion yours wont fit. what size are yours? my opinion but 17" s are best fit IMO.

Anything that I should look out for on a 5th gen?

Yeah ATTS

*EDIT* Does the 5th gen actually have leather or is it pleather?

Whats wrong with a base?


Well depends on what you want if you would like the 5th Gen over your 4th then I would say go for it, but if later you might regret trading then I'd say no.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

I'm not saying there's abyhing wrong with a base. I have one. But if he's saying its an sh and its not then he's shady and probably don't wanna do business with him.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

I say it seems like an ok deal, but i wouldnt touch it with a 10 foot pole til I saw it in person. IMO. and one of the easiest ways to check if its a base or SH. ask for a picture of the door panel =p. courtesy=SH no courtesy =base.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

Importtuner...are you being sarcastic or not cause I can't tell. But the spolier was an option on the base but all base models come with a third brake light in the back were the back glass is. As for my opinion It looks like it's been ran hard.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

i would just keep the 4th gen..mine is not an sh but i have the wing and my side and rear lips do not color match, and neither do his, and those wheels are ugly...if you were planning on keeping your wheels the 5th gens are 5lugs and 4th i belive are 4 lug pattern.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

It doesn't look like an SH to me...
But I'd still get it and tell him to keep those rims and put the stockers on and come off the price some.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

Alright well we're supposed to meet tonight to look at each others cars. Which courtesy light are you talking about? Pic? I'll look for that, engine code and VIN. I told him to keep his system and I'll keep mine and I forgot about the lug pattern. I think is side skirts are the same color, just faded. He said he's the second owner, his dad being the first. The clutch has never been replaced, but the master cylinder has. Is there any other faults other than the ATTS that I should be weary of? Is there a way to see if the ATTS still works?

EDIT: My car is a 4th, sorry I forgot to mention. Also idk if you missed it, but is it leather or pleather? Quick replys and I'll be forever grateful.

EDIT AGAIN: NVM about some of those questions, found the answers here: http://www.preludepower.com/forums/s...id=&highlight=

That should answer the sh questions. and its fake leather, but I think you could get real leather as an option but not sure.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

DON'T DO IT. I 99% sure that's a base not an SH, it has mud flaps,base side skirts and it's not worth $8,500. If he will do a straight trade and all the stuff on the 5th gen come back good then ya but you could see your car now and buy a 5th for w/e you sell yours for and maybe have some cash left over.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

Not all SH's have mudflaps, it was just an option.

It's definitely not an $8,500 car and he knows it if he's offering you to give him $1,000 on top of your car. But a straight up trade sounds fair, although I don't remember what yours looks like.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

if it's gonna be straight up i say go for it.

here are things to look for on the SH
spoiler (standard for SH but option on base)
third break light in rear deck (base only)
courtesy lights in door panels (SH only)
round baseball shape type shift knob (SH only)
and of course ATTS unit!

good luck

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

Okay, I met up with him just a few minutes ago. It's def not an SH, no courtesy lights, had back window light, skirts weren't painted the same as body. Couldn't get the VIN cuz it was getting dark or engine code, and he brought one of the stock rims and it wasn't an SH rim, so that should be basis enough to know it's not an SH.

I don't think I could do the trade, if anything I would want him to pay me some cash. The only thing I saw was an intake, that looked pretty old and a dirty filter. Oh, and most of the stickers on his car were to cover up dents. I give him credit for at least saying hey there's dents under some of these stickers, so that was a plus. Didn't see the strut he mention, but it could have been an under body rear. He did have a round shifter though. Also, he's the 3rd owner, not the second. His dad was second and his dad bought it from a dealership.

Turns out me and him have talked before, I've pulled him over while he was working a couple times, soooooo.......... From the 2 previous brief times we talked I think he digs on my car a lot more than his own. His rims look better in person than the picture portrays, but I would maybe still take them off. His sub wires were cheap wal mart brand "Schose" or w/e they're called, mine are Rockford Fosgate...... All in all, being he has very few mods (intake, cf trim that's probably ebay, tinted tail lights) his car's newer than mine, but has the same amount of mileage I don't think I would do a straight trade.

Thoughts and opinions welcome, and thanks for the help!

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

Don't get it if the filty is dirty. That's usually indication that they don't care to change other things like they should.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

I think you're making a good call by shying away from the deal. I'm sure that if he wants to tad his newer car for your older car that is less desirable (no flaming here I'm a fan of all ludes that just seems to be the way it goes) He's gotta be trying to unload it for some reason. He wasn't truthful about the package, which is a big deal. I'd step away.

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

yeah i was being a little sarcastic lol, but yeah for the cf interior trim...if it was on the vents then its defintely the vinyl type crappp.

anyway, if hes ragging on the car not worth it IMO. , if your going to get rid of your car w/ everything tell him for all the **** i got in my car i want 1000+ your car.

obviously you take care of your car, and the way the other kid sounds..well he doesnt sound like he cares for his property

Re: Guy Might Want To Trade Me.

Yeah I was gonna check the dipstick for oil stains, but I forgot. He might have just not known, he's about my age so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt by saying he may have asked his dad what model it was.
