It looks like a nice car, and I don't know of the '00s having any more problems than the newer ones (only problem we've had in 150k is rear window regulators and a lower intake gasket). The only thing I can see wrong with it is that the price seems about 3k high IMO. Look how long Caminated has been trying to sell his '00 and his price is less than half that...and his car isn't stock either!

Unfortunately, the more you mod a car, the less it'* worth on the open market.

And I haven't had any problems with my '00 except the rear window regulator, and it has 131k on the ticker.

As for price of that '00, I tend to agree more with the 11,500 number. <-- Not true

Sorry, just noticed the mileage. 60k is really low mileage for an L67. I'd say 12k flat at least is it'* worth.

11,500 seems to be pretty good. my 01 rora with all options was $13,900 9 months ago when I bought it and it had 36,000 miles. I'd offer 11k personally...

That depends on who you sell it to. Since this board is full of enthusiasts, most of us would pay more for the car modded. On the open market, most people would have no clue the car was modded if you didn't tell them anyways. Plus the car had a built trans, which even for someone that doesn't want to "race" it is a plus because it will last a lot longer. But still, I see '00 SSEi'* around here all the time with under 100k on them for $7-9k. $10k or maybe $10.5k would be reasonable, but $13k seems a little high to me. Thats my personal opinion though. If you like the car and you think the price is fair, by all means go buy it, but this is just my opinion. Kelly Blue book says that car with 60k on it in "Excellent" condition is $11,300. You have to remember that 60k really isn't that low of miles, average mileage for that car should be 70k.
