Put my '92 RMW up for sale but not too adept at selling cars so what do you guys think? Should I add or delete anything? Are the pictures O.K? Am I way off on the price? I thought I can always come down?
Please keep in mind that it is in Canadian $ so it works out to be $4100 U.S.
Also the mileage is in KM's so 110,000 miles.
I realize it all depends on the local market and these cars don't have the following they deserve.
Anything, even criticism (I'm a big boy I can take it) is welcome.
Thanks.

Car looks good, pictures look good, mileage is pretty low and being from British Columbia, I believe, no salt.

As for the pricing, probably the Canadian members would have a better grasp on it.

Very pretty car! So rare to see one with the original wood outline trim in that nice condition, and after all the white cars with tan or maroon interior, that blue really POPS!

Good luck with the sale!

Personal opinion is that it's ok for US, but too expensive for a TBI car in Canada. In other words, you'll have better luck selling it in the US because the buying power of each dollar hasn't changed even though the value has. I've sold my last 3 cars in the USA.  That being said cars in BC seemed to be more expensive than elsewhere in Canada.  Worst case, if you don't get any bites, drop the price a bit. Consider crossposting to Bellingham craigslist.

Check out mine that just sold. Mine was a LT1 car with a lot of upgrades.
If yours really has 180,000 miles, thats gonna make it very hard.

Good idea. Although I think I will do Seattle CL as it is a larger market.

The mileage is in kilometers, so 110,000 miles. And the price is Canadian $ so just over 4grand US $
