you know those aftermarket mods actually decrease the cars value

which? i have all the stock parts. usually from my experience (i've sold 5+ cars so far) aftermarket mod's usually increase the value. the car is worth 13k i added 2k for performance parts when the car has 5k+ in parts. thats less than half of what all the parts are worth new + taxes + install + everything else.

if having the car stock made the value go up i would have already put all the stock parts on the car and then try to sell it.

i just figured someone would want a car with 374whp/363trq that's done right and ready to run with no problems instead of putting it back to stock. that's all. i have it on 3 websites which almost 95% or more already own a car and don't need another cobalt or an extra. i doubt i'd ever sell it on a forum also that's why i put it up as a feeler.

I'm not saying that those mods aren't impressive. But I am saying in general, a person buying the car will see these aftermarket parts, question them, ask about how well those parts hold up how well they were installed etc etc, as compared to not asking questions if it were a stock part. Especially adding nitrous and tuning really hurts it.

tuning and n2o hurts what? comments like that just make me want to keep this car and drive it to 100k just to prove to people like you the motor will still be running then. it matters how much you beat on the car buddy. you could have a 500whp cobalt and drive it daily and if it's setup right and you never beat on it could last just as long as any other setup. also having a car tuned properly actually makes things run better instead of guys just taking a canned tuned then trying to drop there pulley sizes. This car is done right and if you can't tell by the pictures i can post up sounds and also wot video's along with how the car reacts with spray. also hp tuners log showing the car is running good. At this point i realized the odds of selling it are slim on a car forum but i figured i'd post it for shits'n'giggles.

You do make a really valid point in the long run as i would never buy a modded car unless it looked 100% perfect. I know my car is 100% perfect and also know i have no problem showing the car to someone since i have nothing to hide. usually pictures of the car showing how perfect and flawless it is shows the person took the time to care for the car. At least that's the way i feel and that is why i would buy a modded car if it was all done right.

what do you personally think of my car?
