Default I really need advice...badly...please read

Well guys, to put it simply, I am completely regretting buying this SSEi. At first I thought it was a deal that was too good to be true. I paid DJ SHO $2150 for it cash...I got up there, saw the car, and thought to myself "this thing isn't NEARLY in the condition he said it was in"...but I took the car anyway, I didn't want to drive 7 hours for nothing.

My thing is this : I want to get rid of the car. I don't want it in my face, I completely regret buying it, I don't have the money to dump into it. I have not yet signed the title to this car.

Please dont criticize my mistakes, I know what they are and don't need anybody re-telling me what they were.

If anybody wants it $1600 will take it. $1100 to pay back the parental loan and $500 to replenish some of my drained savings.

I want to get rid of this thing, I don't care how. I really need advice on this one.

thanks

How much do you think it would take to get it to "as advertised" condition?

Mechanically, $800. It has rust that needs tending to also, which will cost more.

I think I'm just going to part this car out. God knows you all need the stuff

Yeah, **** happens. The only thing majorly wrong with my car is the ABS module and that alone is about 900 bucks.

So I understand why you want to dump it. I don't think you could part it out and recomp the money you spent on it??

Good luck pal
