Re: Should i trade??

i'd be a little skeptical trading cars heads up when you have never seen or driven it. Keeping in mind that both of your cars are modified (which normally lowers the resale) yours is still worth more money. I mean I guess it comes down to what you like but you might be better off selling your car and then going to look for a 6thgen with a b swap or something. Hope that helps I'm sure some of the older members will have some more wisdom for you.

Re: Should i trade??

completely up to you. but i wouldnt do it. it would be nice to have that, but so much better if i did it. then it would be my car and not some one else's that i own. know what im sayin? and your car would probably be worth more. and trading? i wouldnt trade. i say dont, but thats my opinion. good luck.

Re: Should i trade??

i wouldnt trade your 7thgen for that 6thgen, but considering your car being a salvaged, i dont know what to say but its really up to you whichever you are more comfortable with.

Re: Should i trade??

i dunno either..really i like my 7th gen..but if you look at it i guess you can do more stuff t a 6th gen, I could be wrong..Its just the fact of getting a already modified car it scares me so much i stay awake at night.

Re: Should i trade??

ummm, they can do k20 swaps in the 6th gens too....both need some work to make it right......but, u arent really upgrading a lot with this trade....and no offense, but if I were the other guy, there is no way Im trading my clean-titled car for your salvage-title car unless your car had something special (k-swap, FI, etc).....just my .02

you have no idea what you're talking about. you've never seen anyone put a d16 vtec head on a d15 bottom?

WHAT are you talking about? b18s arent the only swap you can do on that car. it's a much more versatile chassis.

to be honest though, you could find a much better trade offer.
