Question Thought this day would never come, possibly selling the Z...

Due to some recent events and physical issues, I may end up having to sell me Z, which I thought I would never do.

With that said, how much do you guys think I could get for it? I still have a lean on it, but that really doesn't matter at this point. I would be selling privately, NO dealers at all. It's a 2016 base 6MT with less than 18k miles on the clock.

Would I be better off selling with or without the mods? The stereo system would definitely be staying with me however.

Z1 intakes, ported/polished upper/lower intake manifolds, bored TB's by MaxBore (60mm to 65mm), Motordyne Art pipes, HKS High-Power exhaust, BC coilovers, Akebono brake upgrade, Stoptech slotted rotors and pads, SPL Titanium rear camber links, EcuTek tuned by Seb at SpecialtyZ, Continental Extreme Contact DW (245/40 & 285/35), 2013 Nismo wheels with some previous curb rash NOT from me. Carbon fiber front lip, carbon fiber tach hood, Z1 M-Spec "Fairlady" shift knob, RJM v3 clutch pedal.

Many thanks in advance. And if this is posted in the wrong section, sorry.

My personal opinion is you would be better off restoring it to factory condition and then selling it separately from all of the mods. Generally speaking, you'll make more money that way, unless you can find another enthusiast who understands the value of all of the mods you installed and wants all of them for their build.

Just my $0.02

Very sorry to hear this. For all things there is a season, or whatever. I agree with Spartan - if you sell with mods in car you're lucky to get 20 cents on the dollar for the mods. Revert to stock and sell the parts here. Maybe have a presale for the wonderful people who gave you advice lol

Bummer to hear, Iíd weigh out the options on doing the work or paying to get the aftermarket removed... if what you spend on time and costs is less than 50% off retail for the parts then thereís your reason to do it.

Iíve always been a fan of putting back to stock regardless of getting what you invested out of it better the parts go to someone who will appreciate and enjoy them rather than just an uneducated buyer.

I kind of already knew the answer as far as parting out or selling as is. The good thing is, other than wheels, I have all of the stock parts still.

I've done all the work myself with the help of one of my very good friends, so it wouldn't be a huge deal putting it back to stock. In the end, I'd just have to pay for a 4-wheel alignment and that's it, and reflash the stock tune back onto the ECU.

Advertise as base model that is better than the sports package. Just kidding. Even though we bumped heads in the past, had to bust your chops (pun intended).

Sorry to hear about your situation. Whatever you decide, good luck!

Thank you. It does suck but I guess nothing lasts forever.

Sorry to hear of your situation.

I'll share my experience with selling modified vehicles (Jeeps).

My first one, I did as you described, saved the original parts and spent hours & hours and a lot of labor returning it to stock before selling. I did so with the belief that a modified vehicle doesn't sell for much more than a non-modified vehicle. Sold the Jeep and sold the aftermarket parts I removed. What I realized from my experience was that I didn't recoup nearly as much as I thought would from the sale of the aftermarket parts and when I factored in the time and labor (not only removing the aftermarket parts but reinstalling the OEM parts adds up and my time is valuable), I didn't really make, or save, much at all. Of course, your mileage may very.

So, with my Jeeps that followed, I didn't return them to stock, sold them modified knowing I wouldn't really make much additional money over stock on the sale. However, I sold the stock parts I removed along the way, which didn't require any additional time or labor, and made money on that end.

It's not as easy as, I payed $1200 for my aftermarket exhaust and sold it for $900. That's an over simplification that doesn't consider the value of the removed OEM parts, the time and labor associated with removal and re-install and any bump in sale price of the car as a result of the modifications.

I didn't run a spread sheet or cost analysis but I came to the conclusion that the money from the sale of the OEM parts removed, the increased sale price from the modifications (albeit not great) + the time and labor I saved by not returning the vehicles to stock, was better for me.

I am not saying my choice is the best choice, I'm just saying it works for me.

Just some thoughts.

I've thought about it this way as well. And the reason I thought of this, is because the people who would most likely be interested in buying my particular car would want to have these or similar parts, and know that the parts I have chosen are quality parts. The only thing on the car that could definitely use an upgrade are the BC coilovers. They're not bad, but could be improved upon. As for the rest of the parts, you can't really get much better. Different maybe, but not better. Well, maybe if you decided to heavily track the car, I supposed the brakes could be upgraded at that point.

I feel like taking a shot at this forum's exchange forum for the car as-is wouldn't hurt.

Even though a stock/original car should yield more value by principal, someone here is more likely to understand how the mods can be their worthwhile. Like RWT said, some money and surely time will have to go into converting backwards.
