Default Ten ways to ruin your car'* resale value

Are you doing everything you can to maintain your vehicle'* resale value?

Pump up the volume
Your driving experience may not be the same without that extra subwoofer or those upgraded speakers, but replacing the factory stereo, especially if it means carving away parts of your car, may jeopardize your vehicle'* resale value.

That would be a real concern for those that just bought a new one for $30,000, but for those that want their own ride and bought it used to make it theirs....

Choices.

Edit: OK, gxp rules just proved me wrong, ...or did he??? :P

It said purple. LMAO

When my uncle put the sterio/subs in his car, he saved all of his old stuff for when he sells it.

Yeah, I was going to do the same... but you can sell the stock stuff and buy new aftermarket stuff you couldn't afford otherwise!
