Thoughts?

Theories?

I don't know the market AT ALL, but $15K seems steep for a car with over 100K miles with a CEL and in need of some bodywork. That said, these cars are BEASTS and the one pictured below is on sale for $44K and it has no interior and someone else's name on the side!

This is the perfect car for someone looking to dominate any of the AWD classes of SCCA RallyCross. The price seems reasonable to me based on the few RS models I've seen trade hands in the rallycross community.

The CEL is easy to fix. Just need to put the stock cat back system back on and it is gone. Which I could do if someone wanted me too. My thought was that many folks would go another way with the exhaust after buying the car. If a buyer wanted I would do the work to make the CEL go away before the deal.

I thought I was in the middle price range for the car as it is. But I am humble enough to hear feedback and adjust.

In reply to Advan046:

I know you have been strapped for time lately but I seriously think you would have a better chance of getting close to your asking price if you replaced the rear door with the one you have and replaced the exhaust if that will fix the CEL. It doesn't seem out of line to me as is, but, I'm sure those two issues could turn away some potential buyers.

GLWS.

Thanks for the words of wisdom.

Yes I started to dig out my old exhaust and start pricing the few gaskets needed for stock exhaust install which will cure the CEL.

I didn't want to touch the door yet. I figured someone might want the numbers matching car thing. All the parts are still original. Not sure if that is a THING though yet.
