Never had a single problem with it. never wrecked or insurance claim. rims have minor curb tag from wife driving. All mantainance has been done at honda dealerships. i have it listed on autotrader price is nego. No low ballers. price can be tampered by removing accesories, but dont really want to.

As a general rule, when customizing vehicles, for ever dollar you put into the car, you can take a dollar off of the value.

This generally applies to everything outside of rims, tint, a modest stereo, etc.

The reason for this is that it is hard to find someone that has identical taste in mods.

You may consider parting out some of the accessories to get it to a bone stock element with rims and nice paint job.

i am not sure what tasteful mods are i guess? but taking in to account i am the only owner, paid 25000, plus oem accessories "which are by no means cheap, but very durable" Price is negotiable. and all offers will be taking in consideration. The z2 unit is a very good touch screen unit, never had any problems. If you don't want it i will be more than happy to take it out and put the oem radio back in. i got a lot of gigs of music saved to it and would rather keep it than let it go. The rims are not increasing price, also no extra cost for the custom paint either.

So lets recap i got close to 35,000 invested and asking less than twenty, with all schedule maintenance account for and documented. less than 50,000 miles. all oem parts which were removed for aftermarket parts. no garage mods done. quality performance parts. i think i have taken more than a dollar value amount per part i had installed.

Not in account if i took it to stock i could get easily 15000 on a trade in and not hassle shipping it to a buyer.

Put it back to stock and sell everything off. You will make more money that way and you will have a much better chance at selling your SC.

I agree to put it back to stock.
Even not to bother on repaint, since the buyer may think you are hiding something since the car is only 4 yrs old.

well i dont feel like shipping random parts to different places, plus i am offering the paint job after buyer buys car. most milage is highway milage. of course there are going to be imperfection such as scratch from big bugs, birds, and rock chips. if you say there shouldn't be your a liar and covered it up. i got two track cars that has my time full. 100 dollars there and here from parting out is not worth my time. a fat check for car how ever is and two days in the booth is not a problem and worth my time. and the paint job would not be cheap. top of the line clear, awx water bourne base. can not go wrong. hell might even throw some p30 under the base to give it some flex so no more rock chip.

KBB says $17,xxx with custom wheels, paint, ect. I would throw $16,500 at it without the wheels and most of the electronics. I really would if I had the money because I really do like the paint job. Very clean E!

Sweet looking E!

Unfortunatly modding is mostly for our own amusement and a waste of money in the long run. Good luck with your sale.

the milage is still under 50000 and everything mantinace has been done at the dealership, oil change has never went under 12%, cabin filters have been replaced, i cant even list everything because everytime i go they say its time to do this and do that and i just sign off on it. probally half of it doesnt even need to be done, but oh well. i am open to any offers, i will take rims and radio out to drop price if needed. i still have all stock parts except the airbox, because honestly who wants a air box CAI ftw. i also have the window visors in storage, i just need to paint black cause the bulldog adhesive didnt take the paint and spider web, that is why there not on there.
