selling car with carputer
has anyone done this? since i'm selling my car this summer, my friend mentioned that i should keep the carputer in it when i sell it. obviously i'm going to have to neaten some stuff up, and probably get an indash monitor. but i could probably get a lot more money with the carputer in the car than relative to what i've actually spent on the carputer.
for example, i estimate i spent about $1,500 on all the parts. the kbb value is about $3000 for my car. i think i might be able to sell the car privately for $5-6,000. thusly making at least $2,000 which will be used to fund the next project. (i would love more than anything to build a new system from the ground up).
all i really need to do is get a new amp for the speakers and take the 2 amps already in there out (because i love the amps i have), get an indash lcd (looks cleaner than what i have now and will probably be cheaper by summer if i get the non-motorized), and neaten up all the wiring and build a new amp rack and computer case. i also think i'll take out the wifi antenna and adapter.
i think the incentive for people to want my car is the navigation system, ability to watch movies and dvds, and the ability to have thousands of songs at their fingertips. along with being able to upgrade the machine endlessly.
the only thing wrong with the car is it willhave about 154,000 miles by the time i sell it, and the sunroof is broken. otherwise its in great shape (with a few scratches here and there).
so what does everyone think?
