Is it me or this car is overpriced?

A local tuner shop is selling their project car. Is it me or this car is overpriced for a 2008? $8k for an Eisenmann Race muffler?

they spent 49k on mods but couldnt upgrade the tail lights to LCI or get a diffuser

That car's gonna sit there a while. They're better off doing a part-out and selling the car stock. They'll never get that price for an 08 with 57k miles.

+1, the mileage on that car is too high and telling by the wear on the seats, this car was not really looked after. I bet that engine has been abused.

Illtech is a joke.

Never dealt with them personally. But I've also never heard anything good about them. Their loyal customer base is spoiled rich kids that think things are "mad tyte yo".

You're in the PNW as well?

Yeah, I saw that a while ago and thought it was overpriced. Glad I'm not alone.

The mileage isn't that high but I agree with you that the car should be in the $40000-$47000 range with the mods.

Right, '08s simply can't be at that price in 2013 with those miles and fact the new M3 is coming out in less than year.

Car should be in the low to mid 60k range, however, finding a buyer who wants the car like that will be difficult. A S/Cd M3 with almost 60k miles on the clock...I don't know.

Blah, I'm going to sound like a complete as*hat.. But the car costs ~$60K and you invest ~$40k in it? What on earth are you thinking when you built this car, I don't understand why people would waste this amount of money..

I understand, modding your car to a certain extent, but somethings are absolutely unnecessary. I'm pretty sure there are other, more important things that you could have spent your $40k on...

I'm sure he's not the only one spending that much on his car. I mean, the SC is already two third of $40.
