    What should I offer!?

    I found a nice 2001 6sp Black w/white stripes (30th anniversary stripes I think) WS6 w/62500 miles near me. I am new in this market and don't know what to offer, especially since it's modded. He is asking $16500 right now. Thanks

    16 isn't bad...with that mileage i'd offer him 14 and meet somewhere in the middle.

    He is selling because he has two car payments and wants to buy some land. I understand the LT's and exhaust, other than that I am not sure...

    I bet the rear end is shot, considering his mods are pointing to frequent drag racing. have you driven it yet? Is it an a4 or m6

    It's an M6. He hasn't dragged it. Haven't driven it though...he bought new rear axles and bearing for it about 7500 miles ago. He has only had the car for about 12k miles over 2 yrs.

    You sure this car hasn't been beaten on? Why would someone beef up their rear end, buy a line lock, and install a spec 3 clutch if it's not being raced.. sounds like a to me

    Yeah I will have to ask him more about it! I will be able to tell, though. Just curious what I should offer if all is in good shape. I just think he did the mods and his priorities changed. and hasnt had much time to enjoy it...

    he'll laugh @ 14k b/c he's obviously trying to get his mod-money back [that car is probably only worth 13 in bluebook]...offer 15 and be like "there are more out there so, take it/leave it"

    Owner says he hasn't dragged it. Only autocrossed once. He did not intend to use it as a drag car but he did want to try the 1/4 mile, but he never did. This guy has an excel spreadsheet of everything that has been done to the car includiing gas fill ups. He replaced the axles and berrings because it was the same price to get a set of axels as it was to just replace the
    bad bearrings. Says it is clean as hell back there. I'm going to check it out.

    I understand that you don't want to lowball him, but he's asking too much for it. I'd offer no more than 15k for it, and expect him to say no... then just give him your number and tell him you've got the money if he changes his mind, but there are other cars you're going to look at.

    Just remember this: There are hundreds of cars for you to pick from, so if someone isn't willing to deal- just keep looking!
