    Considering this Viper any input

    http://www.greaterchicagomotors.com/...il-id-36704659

    I have an 04 with 28000 With new tires exhaust gears and intake. This one would be bone stock. Bad idea to trade in?

    If you did trade you would be trading up.

    I find myself driving my Gen 4 more than my Gen 5 most of the time. Less rattles and wind noise and more of a Hotrod feel.

    You mite miss the gears in your Gen 3 but that's not hard to fix.

    Nice looking car.

    Thanks for the input. I am definitely having a hard time to decide. I have put $11k Into the one I have now but really like the gen 4’s! Is $59,900 A fair price ya think?

    Make SURE you inspect this car.

    I try to stay away from price issues...but, it seems to be in the general ballpark depending on what you find on the INSPECTION. Of course, you need to beat them down !!
    I don't send or receive "PM's" since I prefer DIRECT communication.

    I gotta find someone to take it to that is close to the dealership. It’s a 2 owner car. I definitely learned my lesson from getting this one. I had to dump thousands into it. They offered me 39 for mine

    It sounds like you just need to keep the one you have and buy this one out right.

    If one Viper is good then two Vipers are gooder,

    I am just giving you a hard time is all. It's tough selling a car you have spent time and moneys to try and get it the way you want it only to be offered less that you know yourself it's really worth.

    I can't help you with prices. I seem to buy high and sell low. No mater how hard I try not to.

    This dealer also has a 2010 Yellow/Black convertible that I was interested in earlier this year, but Covid has kept me from taking a road trip to go look at it. Looks like they have had it for some time now. It's a Canadian car, not sure if that has anything to do with it.
    If you end up buying from them, let me know how the transaction goes.

    Definitely appreciate all the insight. Yeah I am having a hard time letting mine go unless I can get more for it. I seen that yellow one as well. I will definitely let you know f I go their. It’s about an hour from me. Honestly my hood is what I hate the most. Obsessed with gen 4 hood. If anyone has a lead on one for sale let me know.

    But then you have to worry about dogs, cats and small children being sucked into the engine compartment without them in place.lol

    But you can check your engine oil with the hood closed.

    Yes you can Steve. But I am all about safety first and besides it's only the Gen 5's that run them selfs out of oil.
