I would like to trade for a civic coupe or integra or something along those lines. Has to have ac components doesnt have to work. Manual is a must. Preferably runs. No DX civics.

do you still have the original bose stereo?

2012-08-21, 03:37 PM
i might have it somewhere or i know where it could possibly be. This is basically a 2 owner car my uncle had it until about 115,000 miles and then my brother bought it from him for 3,500 and my brother just recently bought a 1997 prelude so he sold the car to my mom who gave it to me for my first car. but it does have the original bose speakers just my brother put in a pioneer stereo in it.

my friend has a turbo vq like this. def a bad ass car

Meyer49er
2012-08-24, 09:58 PM
a turbo would be pretty bad ass but i checked my car insurance rate and for a turbo its like 10 to 15 bucks more a month and i don't have that kind of money sadly (because I'm a teenager). I'll take more pictures once I fix the problems with the paint and the dents, and after i wash and vacuum it out.

man i guess your right, if i would have realized it before i might have done that but the car is for sale/trade now so i can get car that gets a little better gas mileage like 25 to 30, because I have to pay for my own insurance and gas which I have to take the money out of my american fender stratocaster fund since I do not have a job right at the moment.

of it was 5 speed it probably would have. keep it and boost it lol

Meyer49er
2012-08-28, 03:58 PM
this maxima was not available in a 5 speed sadly... that is the main problem with selling it... automatics are like a cock block for this website and most teenage guys in general. I don't know if you could do a swap to a manual somehow but i think it would be cool if someone would try to do that.

melvingoku3
2012-08-28, 08:47 PM
dude you really need to do some research on maxima's bro. they did come 5 speed factory. they where ment to be a 4 door sports car. still to this day they are. my friends turbo maxima is a 5 speed. up intel the newer models the maxima came 5 speed. read up bro! the maxima can make some serious power and make an awsome sleeper!!!

2012-08-28, 09:58 PM
well what the hell i put the checked the prices on kbb and automatic was the only thing you could click on, and your right i didn't do too much research and i would love to keep it and maybe swap it for a 5 speed but it doesn't get the mileage that i'd like. I'd rather save up to put into a college fund.

Meyer49er

Meyer49er
2012-08-29, 11:25 PM
I need 4 to 6 years to be a biomedical engineer so i got a long ways to go sadly.
I would spend the money to put a turbo in it if it was a five speed, and if it was a different color :loco:. I had no choice in that and i just don't want it really, I want a gsr or something cuz my bro already has a 97 prelude or I'd get one of those cuz those sound good even stock.

The classifieds here are a joke, all people want to do is trade shitty Honda's for other shitty Honda's.

You'll have better success putting it on your local craigslist. Mine sold in less than a week and it was a 95' with 215k on the clock. People were calling from all over.

So what was the price on this car? Or are you just looking for trades only?

Meyer49er

I'm only for trades as of right now just until my brothers car gets fixed. He blew a head a week ago and he's getting it worked on but he said it should be done this weekend so i might be able to take cash then. Until then me and my brother have to share my car.

It's a 98 sir swap/ mild build is complete. And has the needed ecu with chip. Just needs a good tune. Starts. Runs and drives. Has a funky idle but could be fixed with tune. http://kcsr.org/showthread.php?t=130653

How about a price with no trade?

Meyer49er
2012-09-09, 11:50 AM
In about a month I can sell it if I wanted to but right now my brother and I still have to share this car so only trades for about another 2 to 3 weeks then I could sell the car. I would like to get like 3,500 and no I will not take 2,000 for the people who try to low ball me. KBB values excellent 3,378 very good 3,153 good 3,028. Nada clean retail says 3,900 for the base and for the clean retail with all the options and the mileage says 4,650 and this has a clean title so I think 3,500 is a fair price but it's not totally firm but close

Meyer49er
2012-09-18, 03:45 PM
I would but ever since I saw a 2000 impreza 2.5rs come up near me I wanted it so that is really the only thing I want now not a civic anymore. And most of the impreza's from that generation are really good in the snow and since I live in Nebraska I need a car that is good in the snow. I'm not saying my car is not great in the snow because it is but I'm sure that an impreza would do better

Meyer49er
2012-09-19, 09:59 PM
sorry man I just found a 2001 rs that I'm more than likely going to end up buying this weekend then once my bro gets his car fixed I'll sell the maxima to the person who can get closest to roughly 3k.

^thanks for the bump! I honestly don't know why. I have gotten plenty of lowball offers and a couple of trade offers but for things like motorcycles and atv's and things of that sort. I did get offered a 97 civic but was in terrible condition with 160k miles which is good but it also had a salvage title and he wanted cash from me? I hope I get this sold/traded soon.
