Re: Is it better to trade in or sell privately?
lots of great comments here. The dealer will likely try to rape you. BUT on the other hand. they will pretty much take the car for as little as it's worth anyway, no questions asked. all they want is to get you into a new car, they will deal with your car's resale later, or more likely send it to one of their smaller dealers that sell used cars. It's a lose lose situation in a way lol. But if you don't mind taking a hit, just trade it. It's easy and before you know it your driving a new car. I say remove the mods and sell on here first tho, because you will lose that $ either route in my opinion. Sure some "enthusiast" might offer u more because u have modded it, but I doubt it. I wouldn't pay more for a car that someone else ripped apart and fucked with lol, I wanna do that myself. I say take it to the dealer and get them to run numbers and try make u a great deal, u can always say no lol.
