no, thats still too much. try to talk him down as much as you can, to at least $4500.
I dont think he'll go down any lower, and this is like the only 240sx around here with a manual tranny.

I'll check the want-ads tommorow, maybe someone listed another. It would cost me about the same to have a cheaper car shipped here, and i wouldnt even be able to look at it.

I can count the number of 240's ive seen in my lifetime around here on one hand.

wow, if it means that much to you, then go ahead and get it. but you've got to be patient. it took me forever to find the 240 i wanted. my parents were trying get get me hatchbacks (civics) and gsr's, but i wouldn't take them. thats how bad i wanted a 240, so if you think its a good idea to spend that much, go ahead and get it.

heres some problems with the car.

The drivers side window doesnt go down all the way.

The power antenna is broken

one tire is kinda worn and theres a couple of small dents.

How much would it cost to fix the window and antenna?

I'll put my .02$ in....I wouldn't pay more then 4000 for that car. I got my 97 SE w/74000 mile for $3000. Well it was more like 2000 and a pocket bike. :cool:

I agree, its too much. Give him/her a reasonable low offer and if he asks you if you if can go any higher, say something like "this is as high as I can go because the rest of my money has to go to the insurance" Most of the time thats true anyways.

I dont understand why he wants $5300 FIRM?? Take a look at the links below and then compare those to her car. (wtf)

-Ask him if the aftermarket parts have been professionally installed (ask for receipts).

-Bring a blue book.

- if the owner doent think the blue book value is worth it, then print out examples of a few other 240sx's that are better shape and cheaper then his.

like this

or this

^ this even has coilovers insted of just springs, and only has a little more miles than his.

I once saw a 1995 240sx SE 5 speed with vsld and ABS with 105,000 miles 20k on rebuilt engine for only $3400. It was 11 miles from here. The owner moved here from texas and wanted to get rid of his 10 year old 95 240sx for something else and really didnt care.

I personally think a S14 240sx with 100k+ miles for over 4500 is a rip off. God! cant these people sell their cars for the blue book?? the 240sx is not special, and it is no Supra. 240sx's should be sold at blue book.

Edit:

^^^ this 5-speed has only 60k miles!!

http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.j...r3=&color2=&isp=y&engine=&lang=en&cardist=945
^^^ the milege on this is pretty high but it has a major tune up and its a real SE

http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.j...r3=&color2=&isp=y&engine=&lang=en&cardist=121
^^^95k miles for $4700


http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.j...or3=&color2=&isp=y&engine=&lang=en&cardist=56
^^^this has 131,000 mile and 45k miles on the motor

All in all my opinion is to WAIT!! DONT BUY IT!! if you do, you will soon realize that you got ripped off.
