* i built this car as the ultimate daily driver and it runs and has always run without a hitch ... all highway miles from frequent trips from charlotte to tampa to care for my ailing father
* it has been maintained to the utmost and almost anyone in tampa, charlotte, or acurazine.com can concur
* josh at excelerate performance and john at lht performance can vouch for my build with all new parts and their respective quality

Nice job! That is one GREAT car!

Unfortunately, I need a car that will hold 25 bags of mulch.

I might be interested in a straight across trade. It was EOTM back in 06. Only has 57k plus the factory 16s to go with the custom made 20s. Here is a link to my cardomain page. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2137881 Since the last time I've updated, several dash pieces have been professionally color matched and a fresh set of tires went on.

Who appointed you Forum Nazi?
just saying....
Any forum i have ever been on, flaming somebody on their(did i do good English teacher?) asking price isn't what fellow members do. If you can't say something positive, why bother? Maybe it's a little different around here...I'm still a nOOb.
Now with that said, GLWS OP :D

Pretty stupid magazine if they couldn't figure out that "DD" stood for daily driver. Jeeze.

All the internet is full of opinions, true or not, valid or not. Several have been expressed in this thread. I personally agree with the OP in that his car has been "tastefully modified". ( I'm really diggin' those Corbeau seats.) Unfortunately modifications usually add less than 50% of their value to the selling price of a car. I think that is what Blueboy was trying to say. Is it overpriced? In the end it is worth what someone is willing to pay. Time will tell.

^^^I agree with you, you never get back what you put into modding a car when it comes to selling it...anybody who modifies a car understands that(i hope at least).
Although, according to blueboy's calculations/research the car is worth $15K(let's say for argument sake). If you added all the aftermarket goodies OP has into his TSX(brakes,suspension,rims,seats,kit,paint,the list goes on...), an extra $3K(his price is $18K) is a very fair price increase IMO. :D

Sweet TSX. Good luck on the sale.

AFK to buy a lotto ticket. (Maybe I will buy it...COMEON 6 numbers)

:)


Disclaimer:The aforementioned purchase of a lotto ticket in no way suggests that anyone must win the lotto in order to afford the vehicle for sale due to the price for said vehicle being too high. The reference also in no way endorses gambling by others unless they chose to do so of their own free will.
