my plans are springs, new wheels, and a strut bar. then ill get some more power. not planning on exhaust or anything major intake wise. just tossed a k&N Panel filter in place of the dirty as hell stock paper filter.

JZW though? Ill check into it.

How much did you get it for if you don't mind my asking? And what's the mileage? I'm going to get myself into a newer car next spring... Might be looking at the '08+ 9-3.

Impossible. I was just talking to an auto dealer that I work with that took in a '07 9-3 with 47k for $10,000.

its a clean titled perfect car from a dealer. the story is as follows.

my parents sold me their 2002 9-5 Aero that needed a tune up (new plugs, HID bulbs, adjustment of headlights, filters, tires and a few internal bulbs). they charged me $4k.

i did the work (about $1k worth of parts etc) and loved the car but it turns out my parents were not happy with the seats in the 9-3. as they have 6.5 hours in the car every weekend to go back and forth to the cape comfortable seats are a huge deal. plus the car doesnt have nearly the storage capacity of the 9-5 Aero.

So i signed the clean title for the Aero over to my parents and they signed the clean title for the 9-3 over to me. i bought it for $5k. and no i am not selling it. i love this car. with a couple of small tweaks it will be awesome. I have thought about trading it in for a TurboX or a 9-3 Aero but dont want a the car payment i dont currently have.

so if you want to say my parents gave me a car feel free. Honestly i preferred th Aero in a lot of ways and feel like it was me doing them a favor with the trade.

So you did your parents a favor which is admirable. I'd agree with preferring the 9-5 over the 9-3 though.

Makes more sense now. Needless to say that car is worth way more than 5k... Even on a trade in. It's nice that you did them a favor... Now I just need to convince my dad that he needs my 9-5 in lieu of his SL550... Lol

I know hindsight is 20/20, but this would have been the time to mention the sweet-ass deal you got from your parents.

It's safer to assume that people are interested in knowing more about the market value of the car and not necessarily the details of your personal finances.

Anyway, nice pick-up. Congrats!
