    Default 98 lib bilstein ver6 sti converted how much should i ask for??????

    hey guys, i've been lurking a bit but not contributing. i've been busy running my tyre retail store in brisbane for nearly 2 years so haven't had any free time.
    we( the missus and i) are looking at getting an I-load crew for personal and business use. She (missus) wants to try and trade in the lib against a loan for one these.

    here is a run down

    1998 gen2 factory manual Bilstein edition liberty
    2000 ver6 sti motor,gbox,diff and brakes
    front mount cooler
    turbo back stainless exhaust (tcp i think?)
    leather seats 210 000kms
    converted 2008 AMAUTO's
    full out of car engine service done when converted seals,timing belt,water pump etc
    got a new clutch when converted (50 000kms ago though)
    climate control and cruise work as per factory
    hits boost cut from 1st to 2nd when revved beyond 4000rpm
    havent touched the actuator or anything

    i reckon we'll be lucky to get $8000 for on todays market
    i would seriously like to get a haltech and gt35 and keep it
    the missus has used it in it's current guise for the past 4 years dropping the kids off to school and shit

    don't know.
    can i get decent coin for it?
    it is pretty quick for what it is (beat an evo6/5 when it was 1st converted)
    doesn't get good economy!!!!( 400l per tank) 98 shit too!!

    whats a realistic private sale figure???

    caryard would probably give me $3g max i reckon!!

    (will try to ad some pictures)

    The truth is its a buyers market now, and everything is getting real cheap.
    A stock RS is now worth about 3k max, and gen2's not too much more, the nice engine/driveline/conversioncombo obviously makes it better.

    You really need to find the right buyer, on a good day i think you could get 8k(assuming its clean etc).

    But expect about 6500

    Here's a link to my Gen 2: http://www.rslibertyclub.org/forums/...-Liberty-turbo

    It's only a V2 WRX conversion but it's very clean and well looked after, I paid 8K for it about 12 months ago.

    After I bought it I joined this forum and realised I probably paid too much, such is life.

    sounds like a weapon mate.

    also sounds like it would've cost a small fortune to build. money well spent IMO.

    wagon or sedan?
