Should I sell or not??

Well I have a choice to make. I can keep my car or get another civic. I am only goona go with this deal if I come out even, or ahead. What should I do, and how much you think I can get for my car. This is what I have.

Mechanically: Perfect
Physical: Minor scratches, little dent on front of hood, and dent in rear where it got punched. pics of dents this afternoon
Kaminari Fasica Kit
17" ICW wheels
AEM short ram

a few pics:



And here is the civic I would buy. It is from a friend, and he hardly never drives it.
MODS
01 Civic EX 5 speed
R34 Front, OEM sides, not sure about rear
Greddy EVO2
Invader CF hood
CF 18" wheels
Eibach Sportlines
Camber kit
New pillar gauges, a/f, volt, oil press, all cf
All Bazooka audio, sponsered, 2 subs, custom fiberglass inclosure, with liquid cooling
heres the only pic that he has of it right now so let me know what should I do.

I'd keep your car. Your style was put into your car and his was put into his car. Auto or stick.. It's still slow. Why start off with a car that already has everything done? There's no fun in that. That's my opinion.

alright wells heres the thing. i bought this car also from a friend, and he put all this stuff on the car I have now, except the wheels. well someone beat up the car badly. i bought it with 47,000 for $5500. i put another 2000 with the wheels, new paint job, body work etc. well i got 7500 in it. whatever money i get over that is profit. i know that new car is all done, but thats exactly how he bought it. he bought it for 14,000 a year ago. my dad paid for the first car, and he said if i wanna sell mines nad buy the other one, then i have to sell the black one and give him 500 dollars. So i need to come out ahead in this deal. idk i have to make a big choice here

thats the hard part. he lives like 2 hours away from me right now. when i go back to my house for christmas i will be able to get more pics but i am at college right now. its all show. i mean, the best, most well known car club in la asked him to join, so its not ugly. the paint is starting to look old, and got a chip on the back bumber about the size of a baseball. other than that i thinks its all good. the guy took care of it also. garage kept. i know you cant go by this, but i went to kbb and looked the two cars up. mines right now in good condition SAYS its worth 10,055. his is in good condition is worth 8700. i am sure he cant be asking more than 11 or so right. i mean i dont think he can even get that much. what should i start off at asking??

mm....maybe im the only one....but....i won't do it, personally.....especially that you're buying one that is older than your current car...

i would personally try to get 03+...pref. 04 or 05.....

as far for the mods.....well.....don't really like to say this, but.....seems like ur friend is inflating the car price for it.....hehe...not good..

i got no money for a newer model lol, but the thing is am i only 18 and my dad already bought me 4 vehicles, and he said my civic is the last one till i am done college. not to mention he is paying for my school and apartment and everything so i cant complain. the guy never told me a price but i am sure that he will try to make money off the mods that he didnt even do. it wont be for sale till he sells his celica, then he willl try to sell it. i will try to get a quote from him on what he wants

Do yourself a favor and don't do it. It's not worth the hassle. You already fixed your car so keep doing stuff to the one you have.

but the thing is its not my style. the kit, intake, exhaust was already on the car. i just changed the wheels, and i have no problem what so ever with my car, BUTi planned on putting my kit on that car, keep his wheels, take the drop off and put pro kit, and its got a manual and i love to drive manuals. i dont wanna sell mines, but this car is what i wanted. i know i know i should have gotten that from the start, but my civic just fell into my hands. i didnt plan on getting it.
