03 mustang gt

I am looking into a 03 mustang Gt with 80,000miles for $9000
Is the price right or to high?

the car has "slp loud mouth exhaust, k&n cold air intake, tune with tuner, subframe connectors,short shifter, lowering springs, drilled and slotted rotors, bigger throttle body, plenium, touch screen stereo/dvd, all black interior"
The car has never seen snow and was always kept in the garage

How much is this car actually? what kind of price would you pay?

That's a fair asking price, although I assume you would try to negotiate it down some. Also keep in mind that prices vary regionally, so where I'm at in CA it seems reasonable but somebody from (insert state here) might think the seller is on drugs.

Also worth asking is if it's a private seller or dealer. Something else you should do is go on KBB.com and see what it says; Kelley Blue Book isn't perfect by any means, but should give you a good idea if the car is priced in the right ballpark. Also, feel free to post a link to the car's online ad and we'll all give our 2.

he wants $9,000 for it, he only dropped down to $8,500. I looked at kbb and it says excellent condition should be around $8,000
It is a Privite seller car. most people around my area says the car is only worth from $6,000 to $7,500

the link to the car is right here:

What is youre opinion?

Looks like a nice car, but if KBB is saying 8grand then I wouldn't spend more. His mods unfortunately don't add any real amount of value, that's why cars are called money pits.

Have you ever owned a black car before? Do you suffer any OCD tendencies? If 'no' to the first one and 'yes' to the second, I would think long and hard before buying a black car. I've had two black cars before, they are a real mothertrucker to deal with, they only look perfect for about 5 or 10 minutes after you spend all day detailing them, and then dust settles and your dumbass friends that have know idea what goes into maintaining a black car put their hand and fingerprints all over it. Black and yellow were instant disqualifiers when I was shopping for my car.

And I could do without the black rims as well - just not my thing and I don't get it, but that's my own problem.

If you end up checking the car out and like it then go for it, but keep in mind that there are plenty of other good Mustangs out there so don't worry about letting it slip away. And I also wouldn't spend over the kbb price unless you really really really want the car and plan on having it for a long time. Like I said, 9grand (or $8500 now) I don't think is a bad price, but that's here in CA where 10year old Cobra's still go for $20K+.... If everybody around you is saying $7K they might be on to something.

Looks good just how does it drive? I'm with SoCal on this issue. imo you can not really go by KBB too much these day but they do give a good start. All KBB does is give prices for stock vehicles and do not include mods or how wanted the vehicle is. There will be other good Mustangs to come buy if this gets sold, Spring time is here.

Nice looking GT. I would say a little high on the price. Really depends on how it was driven. I would have a third party do a pre-sale inspection.

I agree the price seems a little high. I bought my 04 gt off a lot with only 62,000 miles for 9000

.....It's definitely worth more than $6k....it all depends on how abd the OP wants it and how well it drives/was taken care of.

It is a very nice looking mustang, has nice mods. I would not go over $8k for it, $7500 is a good starting point.

Good luck OP!!

Just in case I haven't posted enough in this thread....

If this, or any car for that matter turns out to be The One, and you're the kind of person that figures on keeping it until you die or it gets smashed by an 18-wheeler, IMO then it's worth whatever you feel like paying for it. And if anybody gives you a hard time for whatever you ended up paying tell 'em to suck it.

These cars aren't appliances like Camrys or Accords. If you're shopping for an Explorer to carry your family around in then I would be more apt to compare and finaggle on price - nevermind that I totally let myself get screwed on my 2008 Explorer a couple years ago, but we were in a pinch at the time and I was coming down with a nasty case of AIDS the night we were at the dealership (yup, that's the excuse I'm rolling with). These are the sort of car that inspires an emotional response; and although you shouldn't let your emotions get the best of you it's still ok to embrace the response a little bit.

true story about 6 years ago I bought my stang for 9,000 and it was a v6 with 100k on it. which is ridiculous however I was a noob to cars and it was gorgeous. 20k or so later... it has a v8 swapped into it and ill never part with it. as SoCal said if you feel its your long term car pull the trigger imo for all that's done to it that would easily cost u around 5k for for the aftermarket upgrades already on the car plus or minus the labor for parts you couldn't install yourself.

Show mods: Blackout decklid, ultra clear fogs,HIDs 6000k,mach 1 lip, mach 1 grille delete ,stalker hood, Gt scoops, Gt rear bumper, Rear window louves, 01 cobra rims, cobra calipers, cross drilled slotted rotors, two tone paint.

Go Mods: 8.8 Rear, 3.73s, Borla Stingers, JLT Rai,93 oct Perf tune, worked over 4r70w, custom shift kit.

V8 Swap 100%done

I'm excited to hear the results on this. My 03 with similar mods and the same miles but I have more exterior mods done to it. But I would ask the same 10,000 but I'm San Diego (Whales Vag***). I always said I would take 9,000 though.

Also, if you do decide to buy it try to get him to throw the tuner in. When I got mine it took me about 2 months to figure out why it wasn't running right on 89!
