What do you think about pricing for this 57k miles 2014 Cruze LT?

Looking at potentially listing my Cruze here. Has a laundry list of mods done to it, including:
  • BOSCH #42 injectors
  • K&N Cabin Air Filter
  • K&N Cold Air Intake
  • Full LED headlights with switchback turn signals(Yes, I put resistors on the turn signals....)
  • LED BMW style tail lights, with switchback reverse/brake bulbs(weird, right?)
  • Factory head unit buttons(that nobody really uses?) replaced with a nicer gloss black fixture, with a tablet fixed to the second hole for another head unit(next person could easily put a better system in if you wanted, will include brackets)
  • Trifecta tune for both 93 octane and E85 on the #42 injectors
  • Trifecta tune for 93 octane on included stock injectors\
  • Currently have a mild muffler delete from unbolting a few pieces, but that can easily be made stock or louder to preference.

Car has run nothing but synthetic since I got it at 14k miles. Had new tires put on 10-15k miles ago. Most of the miles were freeway on my commute into the city every day.

Thoughts on pricing for this community, please let me know!

The going private party rate as published in KBB or Black Book. Any improvement costs should not be passed on to CRUZETALK members

I'd guess $10K for the right buyer.
$10k not a bad price considering all the factors, is this going to a private sale or a dealer

Only a Dealer can command the Dealer price. Student Driver is a private party. I'm not sure a dealer would even attempt to sell a modified CRUZE and 10K seems about the right price!
You have to eat the mods ,most consumers want there car stock for reliably, warranty ,etc. $9k to 10k,On paper a dealer my give you 5k,but it is all smoke and mirrors with dealers. If you sell private party it could take a long time for someone to come up with that kind of money, You may want to put it on consignment ,as then they can get financing, cars are a hard sell right now, it is a suv and truck market.
Any time I see mods to a car the first two things I think of.....young driver and hard driver.

I'd walk away from it....sorry.

As other have mentioned, mods add exactly $0 in value to your vehicle. In fact, many folks view mods as a negative and it actually hurts resale. Most folks want completely unmolested used vehicles.

That being said, I think an honest and fair price for private party sale would be $9,500. I'd ask $11,000 obo.
If you have 10 grand chances are you're it buying a modified cruze private party, chances are you'll take 5 of that as a decent down payment for a dealer car with warranty, not to say theres not an a s s for every seat, but it'll take a while, a dealer won't give you much because the car will just end up in auction, that's why I asked the target audience
