Well, i met the guy who is going to the auction for me to get my new car today. He offered me $2500 for my car....canadian. Yea, I know, really low...but....it'* $3k or 4k less than what i would be getting privately, but getting the 2000 from him, i will be saving at least $5k than from buying from a regular dealership.
So I think that'* what I'm going to do. He was showing me some of the past auction prices, and there was a 2000 SSEi for $14,300 with 75k on it. So I think i might even stretch out my budget for an SSEi. The big thing is insurance...my insurance will be more than my car payments lol

I was offered $3600 for a trade in, it was too low so I didn't go through with it. I'll keep it looking sweet till I can get a newer one, or the GXP , and sell mine myself for $4800-5000. I'll have no problems selling it I'm sure.

When was that?? I'm talking $2500 Canadian, so it'* a lot less But at the same time, if i were to get this car at a regular dealership, i'd be paying 20,000 + instead of $15,300. that'* like $5000 ...so it will all work out in the end i guess.
