I'm going to sell my rims, mats, and some other stuff. I was trying to decide between using eBay and selling them on a forum. Where do you guys look for parts? The V is such a niche market I can't decide.

I regularly check ebay and the cts-v classifieds when I am trying to buy/sell something. You can't go wrong with taking a few extra minutes to list it on craigslist. It is free and only takes a few minutes.

I'd be interested in several items - what gives are you selling the car? I think I'm 4 hours from IA City depending on whether I get pulled over or not. Last time I drove to Waterloo I got extremely bored but that was in my old mercedes lol.

I guess I'll figure out some prices. I was just trying to figure out where to sell them and hadn't figured out prices or taken pics.

That's fine. It can be deleted. I'm just responding to what was asked. The V is just such a small market I wanted to find out if people use eBay or something else. I'm leaning toward eBay.

I usually start with google and use a query like this:

cts-v (your desired part(s) here) classifieds OR "for sale"

You can also do a nationwide craigslist query by doing part of the search string as above and adding "site:craigslist.org" to the end like this:

cts-v (your desired part(s) here) site:craigslist.org

Ebay speaks for itself. This forum has decent car classifieds but I can never find a lot of parts here.

Hey, you should roll up to Dallas for our dyno day April 4! Even more fun will be at the bar after.

Not gonna lie...I'd love to see your engine and Madman diff. You should still come up.

I wouldn't say you are wrong, but the search I did came up with $2,300 for just chrome factory rims new. I have these with the GSD3 tires; wider rear tires. Plus the 4 TPS sensors. The tires have 5,000 miles on them.

yeah that 1200 bucks was not including rubber or TPMS or centercaps.... rims only and you are selling more than just the rims

I paid $800 just for the chrome work. I had it done by a good company though. The only new chrome factory rims I could find are $2,387 for just rims; no tires or sensors.

I think everything is going to sell to forum members except the new mats. I love the mats; it was one of the first things I bought. Someone on eBay is going to be happy.

how long ago did you sell the V...traitor...

A couple of weeks ago. The V is my first DD to last longer than 1 year. I kept it almost 4 years; so that says a lot. A new V was calling my name, but then I drove an 07 Z06. I ended up with an 09 Z06.
