Waaay tooo much!! Now if he does the timing belt service including the water pump, pulley, tenioner, etc. than I would say $6500 would be okay but $7500? No way is he going to get that much for it. But who knows. There is a sucker born every day.He's asking crazy money - 7.5K, don't know about the tranny type yet.
Then u won't have the luxury of working on your car all the time like us. LOLHow much is your friend asking for it?
There is a Chevy dealership down the street from me that has a 2010 VW New Beetle 2.5 with 47k miles on the clock that he is selling for 11995. I am tempted to trade my 2000 in for the new Beetle but I will wait. The point is that there are always deals out there to be had. I personally would not pay more than 6k for this 11k 2000 Beetle regardless of shape.
And than only if you intend to keep it. Because there is no way you will be able to sell it for a lot more than what you buy it for especially if you are buying it for more than 6k.
PS: Is it an Automatic or Manual transmission?
I know! Personally, I really don't like the 2.5 liter engine. It's peppy but very basic and it really doesn't get very good gas mileage. My old beetle gets better mileage than the 2.5's do. If I do change cars it will more than likely be for a 2.0 Turbo Beetle. But those are still too expensive right now. I have seen some of the 2012 Turbo 2.0's go for as low as 18 to 19k which isn't bad but right now a little out of my price range. So I guess I hang onto my Yellow HMMBUG for a while longer since I replaced pretty much the entire suspension and put a lot of sweat, money and time in it.Then u won't have the luxury of working on your car all the time like us.
