    So I'm finally letting her go...
    2008 GT with 66k miles, and every option except the Shaker 1000. LED tail lights, roll bar from Autopower with cover and padding, and new Michelin Pilot Sport 245/45-18 tires.
    I'm in Newport Beach, California, is asking $21,000 too much?

    Is craigslist the only option or are there better places to sell? I think eBay charges a fee, right?
    Any advice appreciated, thanks!

    By the way, the rollbar was never used... :)

    KBB say's $18,450 in excellent condition, but I'd say putting it at 21 might be good so you have some room to haggle with.

    Edmunds.com says closer to $20k for private party, over 20 for a dealer. But you're right, starting a little high gives some room to negotiate down...

    Plus the brand new (less than 500 miles) Michelin Pilot Sports are a good selling point. Those were $1,000 to put on there, but I couldn't sell it with almost gone tires either...
