Hello All: have not been on the forum for a while: I still have my 2006 V blacked out monster with 68K miles, Looking to sell, before I post on the classified wanted to get some feedback with what is a fair price. This car is well maintained by the top dealer in US (Lindsey). With maggie and all the other good stuff you can't find a better car. What should be the asking price.

I am looking into the new V's or a Z06.

Love to hear back so I can post on the classified then.

Mick,

How's it going ? You going to sell it before V-Day 5 ?

Hey Ron: All is well, just thinking about something newer, but wanted to get some feelers out - for what my car would be worth here on the forum as we all know we are serious about our cars and I rather have it go to someone who cares.

Again, not sure if I will part with it but wanted to see :-)

Jim will trade you straight up, V1 for V1....

Your car is a beast. Got to see it at Lindsay and Vday. Your avatar does it no justice.

I trade you for your V2 not your beat up V1. I have seen you drive "Jim". Onto the question of this thread, What is a fair price?

Mick,

If you found the right buyer, I would guess low to mid 20's. I have seen some pretty low prices recently for V1's on craigslist/ebay/autotrader, etc.

All the mods you have will probably not get you too much over a stock V1. You can typically get more if you took all the mods off and sold them separately, but that is a PITA.

OK - I am ready to get a V2 coupe and want to put the V1 up in the classified. Any takers in NO. Virginia before I put it on the classified adds.

Have you driven a V2 yet, Mick? You sure you want to ditch your V1? I saw my '04 for the first time in a while last week and I missed it dearly. :sob:

Jim,

Would you not get a V2 (fix your V1) if you had to do it all over ?

Jim,

Nah, I was always going to get a V2. But, like Bigron, I was going to wait for a nice used one. My plan was to be without payments from May '09(when the '04 was paid off) to late summer/early fall of '10.

But totaling the '04 and driving only the Town Car for 4 months, combined with 0% financing and the perfect demo '09, accelerated the process.

Jim,

DOH, I need to read more carefully.

I would still get the V2. I LOVED my '04. I don't know if I'll ever get that connection with my '09. But, the improvements and creature comforts make the V2 such an awesome vehicle. And it turns sooo many more heads. My ego likes that...

Mick, sorry to threadjack :)

Jim, I am on the fence here. I love my 04 as well with one exception, the diff. It has gotten so loud it's really getting on my nerves. So it's either spend the 30K to upgrade to a used '09 or spend 6K to upgrade the diff. decisions decisions ...

I can do both, but then I would probably have to sleep in one of them.

if you want the most $, part out the mods and sell the car as stock-ish.

I'm new to the V market, but that's what always worked with the Audi A4/S4/RS4 guys... even with stage 3 (bigger turbos), the car still wasn't worth much more than stock with lower miles...and there's always some stock car out there with lower miles.

wouldn't a maggie'd V1 be faster than a V2? I've driven a V2 Coupe at Monticello and it was so freakin' heavy feeling of a car, but, man, that interior and those seats are amazing.

Jimbo... so, is the V1 still sitting? What will happen to it? So very sad.

Mick - jdb is probably right if you can reverse the maggie install, but I recall that tuner shop north of DC did the work. If you're not going to pull the gear yourself then it won't be cost effective to part out. Sorry you're leaving the V1... love your car.

Yeah, still sitting. It will move within the next couple months...

It'll be a sad day if that thing goes.. the V coupe's are pretty cool, but how are you going to fit all your kids in there???
