Ruh roh, s2d4 commented. I'm guessing it's something targeted at my post? Oh well, IGNORED.

There's an ebay invite-only promotion where you list your car to enter a lottery to win a 2015 WRX STi Launch Edition. I considered listing mine for $100k just to enter.

I wonder if he ever saw the failed ebay auction for the SEMA built car that couldn't sell for a whole lot less.

It is quite interesting to sit here and just read people talking shit about some poor guy who is just posting his car on eBay for a little too much because maybe he is still attached to it and really does not want to sell it.

That's not what this about... ^
That car is worth exactly what a stock one is worth, more likely less...

That's why everyone parts out before selling...

I hate to be such a party pooper but that car is probably really worth $22k...
And that's not a mean thing to say.

Agreed - mods, no matter how tasteful, drop the value of a vehicle below stock. I nearly got roped in to overpaying for a blacked-out, lowered Mk4 Jetta and came to my senses just in the nick of time (both at the fact that I would be overpaying for mods that I happened to like, and to the fact that I was about to buy a VW with a 1.8T engine... the horror!).

Good luck to the seller, maybe he'll hit the jackpot, but more realistically it'll be a life lesson.

Folks, this guy has no intention of trying to sell this car. eBay is running a sweepstakes. The grand prize is that new WRX STi.

If you add a car to your eBay "garage," you get an entry in the sweepstakes. If you "share" your garage you get another entry. If people view your car, you get another entry for each view.

If you list your car on eBay for sale, you get additional entries. Obviously a lot of people would like to have those extra entries but don't really want to sell their cars. So there are a LOT of really overpriced cars on eBay Motors right now, where people have listed their cars at ridiculous prices to get the sweepstakes entries while making sure they don't actually sell their cars.

What you see here is "intrinsic value". This car probably means alot to him, and he's factoring in all the blood, sweat, and tears into this price. Result? An absolutely ludicrous price for this car.

But, I'm not surprised considering the amount of people who freak out about the residual value of the car once they drive it off the lot. Cars are NOT investments!

IMO if you want to preserve the value of the car decades down the road (basically keeping it like a future classic car), you can "mod" but strictly off the factory optional parts and accessories catalog / factory performance parts catalog, specifically for that car model. Overtime, these parts become the most rare and sought after, since they were usually overpriced to many people during the products' lifespan. Keep a copy of these factory catalogs to validate the mods. One can go one step further and make sure everything on the car (trim parts, down to the nuts and bolts) is current for that specific model year.

Then maybe one day the car will make the magazine cover of Nostalgic Hero.

I guess you can argue that's not really modding since everything technically remains OEM.
