Dealer won't lower teh value due to the extras, but won't give any extra for them. My wife is a car saleswoman. Shoot me the full VIN, exact milage, and specs and I'll have her look into it.

actually you are wrong here. i was a salesman myself. we used to have to take off money just because they an aftermarket head unit in. we deducted so much for every aftermarket part depending on what it was. if they took them off and replaced them with stock we would give them more for the trade.

they'll base it on trade in value . . . and they use the manheim, kbb . . . and one more, they kinda average them all together . . . . at least what i was told, (I worked at a dealership all last summer, and the sales guys there explained it all to me one day . . . i'd definitely part out the aftermarket stuff and return it to stock . . . cause I'm about to do the exact same thing you are, for the same car too

exactly 06orangecrush, mods lower the resale value of the car, because the chances that someone will like all the mods you have done to the car are slim......

Dealers will say anything to justify buying the car at a lower price, so they can make a larger profit in the resale. ;)

They'll explain why you're getting the low amount and when you check back in a week, the car will be in their used lot with a list of aftermarket parts itemized to raise the price.

Well I guess it depends on the dealership then. My wifes does trade-ins based on what the car is "worth", that is it. A lot of dealers will use aftermarket parts to lower your value as a ploy, as stated, to get more money. Some do it as SOP.

it's a shafty SOP too . . . Some mods left on the car might not hurt the value, like rims, or an intake or something . . . but ugly stickers, weird paint jobs, lots of interior mods, a big spoiler, stuff that is really flashy will probably hurt you
