How did you figure I lost money? I had a 2002 Civic LX I paid $14.000 for. I used it 3.5 years and sold it for $8500. The car also had a messed up front end and suspension that would've cost me almost $1K in parts alone to fix. I think I made out well.

BTW, here are some pics:

Congrats. I sold my vic today. If my friend doesn't come through on the used one (he works at a dealership) I'm going to get a new one (as bad as I hate it). I got $8700 for my 01 EX and I had 34000 miles on it. Not bad, especially since she's also paying me $1500 to paint it (which I'm paying my paint guy for paint only). She didn't want it flat black like I had it, so I'm going back with NBP, the stock color. Regarldless, I'm pocketing about $3900 on it. Dumping part of it in the scion (after paying off credit card again). Anyway, congrats. PS, I'm getting an auto, me the the gf go on lots of road trips, and sometimes I get tired of driving with a manual. Oh, and I'm getting the used one for $12000 if it goes through.

Congrats on your new(used) one, dude! I love this car! I can't get enough. I even want to drive it to the corner store to pick up milk!

If you're getting a used one for 12K then that's pimp. I just don't like used because you inherit someone else's problems.

My car had almost 56K miles on it and I got 8500 so you might be able to do better than that on the trade. I only had an LX

I could easily get $10 for it, but I'm selling it to my gf's sister. I was just wanting to get rid of it, plus I couldn't tear her one... too bad...

Yeah, I had aftermarket rims on it. They were cheap wheels from www.wheelmax.com, tho. If I remember correctly, I paid $599 for my rims and tires, mounted, balanced, and shipped to my door. The wheels were unevenly worn, tho, from my car not being aligned when she was lowered (had to keep neg camber to keep from scraping the wheel wells).

Have you driven your moms? I love how it rides, much better than the civic. Did you know that the tC has more sound-deadening material in it than any other Toyota (not counting Lexus) including the Camry and Avalon? It's a very quiet ride.

Yeah, somewhat. I already bought the short shifter and the aux input to connect my iPod to the stock radio. I like the stock Pioneer so it will stay for a while. I haven't really thought of many mods other than maybe a drop-in K&N when they come out and maybe some tinted windows. Other than that, I think the car looks really nice the way it is.

Maybe I'll personalize with a sticker or two, but nothing big or fancy. Just a clubsciontc or scionlife sticker on the side windows.

I'm on both of those sites (have been since I've been looking at tC's). PM me and i'll give you my user info over there (it's teh same at club scion tc, but it's different at scion life). Anyway, yeah I'm feeling the pioneer in it too. I'm getting a cleansweep to get my rca outs when I get the system for it.
