What will my 3 be worth (new motor)... ?
Due to unforeseen events, my motor is blown in my car and since I'm still in college and don't have a job (athlete at school... no extra time for work) I don't want to be sitting on the costs of a new motor that will be getting installed within the next week. Here's the details...
2006 Mazda3 Hatchback GT w/ 5 speed
Titanium grey in color with stock 5 spokes, black in color (plasti-dip)
Outside is roughly a 7-8, some scratches here and there, tiny chips on hood/roof from previous owner and winter commutes everyday
Interior is a solid 9, I've kept it in good shape, leather (upholstery, if you want) is in great condition, no tears, no creases. Carpet/floor mat in good shape, no stains or tears there either.
New motor will have about 30,000 miles on it and it being installed by my dad and a friend of his who works with engines quite a bit.
Bought the car in the fall of 2010 for about $9.5k, just curious as to what it might be worth with a newed engine.
