Default Guys I Need Help ASAP With Car Trade Advice

Okay so here's the deal, I posted my car on Craigslist for trade, I left open options so people responded with different cars. Today I got a txt from a guy with a pearl white 350z. Both my car and his are clean title, with the exception that his car has 10,000 more miles then mine. He's lowered on d2 coilovers and I think he said cusco camber kit. Also has a double din navi, invidia full exhaust, stage 3 clutch, cold air intake, titanium fly wheel, and nismo throw bearings (whatever that is).

BTW, reason he wants to trade is because he's having a kid and he wants to switch to automatic if he gets a bigger car

Here's a picture of the car itself
Click the image to open in full size.

Now to the questions. I'm not those teenagers that sees nice wheels nice exhaust and suddenly wants the car. Is this car worth trading for the maxima even though the 350z has 10k more miles than mine? and with a stage 3 clutch, is that ideal for everyday driving? how long do these cars last (miles wise) with good maintence. We both want an even trade with no cash involved and I could really use this trade, but I want everyone's opinion on this. Thank you

There is a ton of life left in there,assuming it was taken care of. It sounds like this is what you want any way,youre not going to get a lot of opportunities for a straight swap. If you like it and it seems like its in good shape...DO IT!!!

Yeah I REALLY do want it, but like I said if something bothers me ill just give it more time, but I'm guessing this trade is a once in a life time thing, most people want cash on top, David how many miles does your max have? Just wondering, and if you have an idea, is a stage 3 clutch ideal for everyday driving?

I have 92000 miles on my 07...

That clutch might be a bit "stiff" in traffic. Did you drive it yet?

I haven't driven it yet, I'll probably Check it out tomorrow or Saturday though, I'll be taking my dad he's been driving stick for 25 years so he should know if it's good or not, I'm hoping this car is in equivalent or better condition than my max, if it is, I guess I just found my new car! it has a brand new navi pioneer double din too so I'll probably give him my headunit lol

I might ask for some proof of the upgrades, but if it's all true you need to get this car. It will be a blast. Plus all of the things you would upgrade are already done.

Honestly upgrades are a bonus, I never intended on
Doing any performance mods on the Z anyways so wether it's true or not it's still a win for me lol but like I said I'll check it out and if something doesn't seem right I'll just wait for another miracle

He's selling it as well, he has it for 13k or trade, I'm guessing he thinks my maxima is worth a lot more, I told him the year model etc and very detailed pictures of flaws my car has which aren't many, and I'm guessing hes in rush to get a sedan considering he's having a kid. Btw it's an 05 and mine is an 06. Also most people that would want a modded car are teenagers and I dot think a teenager has 13k for a car cash, so I'm guessing he's taking anything that comes

The worse thing you can do is rush into this car. Take your time. I'm not a big FAN of trading cars unless I actually know the person. Once that bill of sale is signed.. you're screwed!!

Yeah bro definitely, I don't want to rush anything, like I said I'm gonna check it out and most likely take my mechanic and see what happens from there

Take it to a mechanic. Check for some engine and transmission leaks.

I agree with this....but. If you buy from a dealer,private party,auction you trade or what ever you decide to do,whether you know the person or not,you can get screwed!!

If you buy or trade a car at a dealer and no warranty is offered,you drive off the lot and its yours. Some times a dealer will work with you,some times they wont. Used is used no matter what,so you always have the potential to be "screwed". Just be smart,so your home work and make sure some one you trust looks at it. Dont trust their "friend"...

This is very true, my friend bought a convertible Benz at the dealer and the next week the top stopped working, the dealer refuse to fix it and the car was certified pre owned, that's what my dad said regardless of where you buy it there's things people and dealers don't tell you, that's why I'm taking my mechanic of many many years to check it out. I all is well ill decide what to do

Also has a double din navi, invidia full exhaust, stage 3 clutch, cold air intake, titanium fly wheel, and nismo throw bearings (whatever that is).

BTW, reason he wants to trade is because he's having a kid and he wants to switch to automatic if he gets a bigger car

Here's a picture of the car itself

Now to the questions. I'm not those teenagers that sees nice wheels nice exhaust and suddenly wants the car. Is this car worth trading for the maxima even though the 350z has 10k more miles than mine? and with a stage 3 clutch, is that ideal for everyday driving? how long do these cars last (miles wise) with good maintence. We both want an even trade with no cash involved and I could really use this trade, but I want everyone's opinion on this. Thank you

Just when I thought you had your head screwed on straight, you come up with this harebrained deal that is most likely going to leave you with a huge hole in your wallet to match the one in your head.

1. You're dealing with Craig's list.

2. Your putting all the "Good Sounding Qualities" out in front before you have even seen the car. This car may not even exist.

3. How do you know the title is clean? Are you taking the word of some unknown person via email?

4. Why would someone be so eager to make an even trade on someones unseen car? (Why did I bother asking this question? (You certainly fit into that category.)

5. Kenny, slow down. Take an overdose of "smart pills".

6. If the car does exist, the car has issues. Issues you don't want.

This deal is not going to happen.

Well I know the car exist because I'm gong to see it personally, the guy lives about 25 minutes from me, it's not like I'm trading it overseas or anything, and I know it's clean title because he listed it as clean title and I obviously need to see the title to buy the car. I have a family friend mechanic that's been our mechanic for 20+ years and he'll tell me if anything is wrong with it. Like I said I'm personally seeing this car and seeing the seller in person, I hope you don't think I'm doing this online or something because that would be plain stupid.
