Default How much should I offer?

http://richmondin.craigslist.org/cto/2199909270.html

I'm getting more pictures on Monday since he'* out of town, but if its as good as it looks, I'm fairly certain I'm driving down there to buy it. Selling the Bonneville and replacing it with this as a more economical car. Better on gas, cheaper on insurance, the list goes on. The fact that he'* owned it since it had 20k makes up for the fact that the mileage is a bit on the high side. The interior also appears to be in excellent shape.

When I spoke to him on the phone, he said it was negotiable. How much do you guys think I should offer him?

You must have not noticed my Bonneville for sale thread, lol.

I'm selling the Bonneville GXP for a number of reasons. We're getting a car for my wife, and she'* wanted a white car with a sunroof since she was like...12 hence the white and sunroof, and she likes torque, hence the L67 under the hood.

KBB lists this car for $4100 in excellent condition and $3700 in good condition with alloy wheels, since I'm not sure if 16" chromes are considered premium wheels. In any case, it is very well loaded, appears to have little or no rust. I think I'l offer the guy $3400 and go from there. I don't mind the mileage if it was maintained since I know these 3800'* will go a long time if maintained properly.
