I think it's priced fine, just not getting enough exposure here. Put it up on Autotrader if you don't want to deal with Kijiji right away. It's a lot of car for the money, people just aren't seeing it.

Thanks...ya I realize it's kind of a niche car right now with the custom exhaust, I've thought about buying a stock exhaust back to put on so I don't exclude a large segment of potential buyers. I'm not in a rush to sell right now so I'll wait a bit longer before lowering price and posting on Kijiji.. Thanks again for the advice folks!

Rely... Just saw you have one too, ya it's such an awesome car, maybe this is a sign that I should just shut up and keep it, at some point I want to upgrade to a Q50 though...

Yes but think about all the money you can make selling it to people who want to make $200 a month payments on your used car.

1. Sell and take $200 monthly payments.
2. Hope buyer doesn't wreck car or lose job or decide to move.
3. Profit. Hopefully.

ha ha ha

Oh man I had 2 of these guys for every legit buyer when I sold my truck...

My G is the longest I've owned a car without seriously looking at getting something else. Anytime I've thought about going to something else nothing is as nice as an overall package without being way more money. AWD, enough luxury and 330 fairly reliable hp. Not much comes close without upping the budget a lot.

Kijiji is a necessary evil, by not using kijiji you just took away the majority of potential buyers. When i sell anything of high value i put in the ad "reply with phone number or else i wont reply back" and that helps a bit with weeding out the scammers and dead beats. You will 100% get a shit load of stupid offers but imo its worth it.

Not to jinx your sale but I find Infinitis very hard to resell, perhaps because there are a lot out there? You really have to be priced aggressively to move them.

Redlyne, hmmm interesting, why is that?

Lower reputation than Lexus and Acura? All other buyers go German?

I also use Kijiji.

The search filter is really good (along the left-hand side of the page).

I plug in the parameters that most closely match the vehicle that's listed and then compare about four or five others of the same type/year.

I then average them and that's pretty much what I expect to pay.

The rest is down to inspection and spotting any nasties like fluid drips under the vehicle or odd noises when test driving it.
