  • $40k seems to be the new baseline for mint, original & low mileage

    This one just got listed and already sale pending.

    Last year these guys had 6 or 7 cars ranging from about $23k to $37k and it took some time for all of them to sell. But since then they have had hardly any inventory and whenever one comes up it sells very quickly.

    Yup, that's the way things are going. This car appears to be very original, and the one owner, 69k miles on the odo are the key elements driving the price....notice I didn't say "value"! Interior looks original, except for the gear shift knob (that's isn't original is it?), but the leather is worn...many of us have interiors that are way better than this one, but "original" adds value "to some" in the market to buy. Personally, I believe $40k is on the high side, but I'd have to see it up close.

      Makes me pretty happy about my recent purchase. My miles are double but my condition is similar (from what the pictures tell). Time won't make these cheaper.

                I guess that other one sold a little too fast! Combine that with even lower miles and no inventory, so why not ask for $50k? Crazy!

                          I wonder how many of these are repeat sellers, aka the car is always perpetually for sale.
                          Who knows where I'll be, changes from day to Continent.

                            Part of their strategy must be lying about the cars. I know this car and the stories the owner tells are not the stories EA tells. I'm surprised it doesn't come with its spare set of track wheels.

                              I don't think so. Although I don't know them other than talking to the owners when I was looking for a car, I doubt they can afford to do that. They have build a pretty decent business and seem to have lots of repeat buyer and seller and that doesn't happen if you do shifty things.
