Question 18K Mile '03 SVT Four Door: How Much?

I've found an 18K mile, 4 door SVT Focus that I'm considering buying. What do you guys think it's worth? KBB says $10K, but we have negotiated a price of $11,600. What do you guys think, good deal or no?

Wow! As you know there is a add for mileage. What does the guy want for it? Is it a eap version? Average ones go for 4000.- 7000. w/ 100,000 miles. So a 800. bump for mileage & maybe a 500. bump for condition. Is it stock, more likeley? What are others going for w/ say 50,000 on them?

100% stock, never modded, HID headlights, tinted windows, has the certificate, etc. He wanted $13K, and we have tentatively agreed on a price of $11,600. There is one 2003 SVT Focus on Autotrader with 33K miles at a dealer for $11,499.

Oh, and I screwed up my thread title, it's a 2004, not a 2003. If that matters.

I still don't get the prices that people are asking for these cars. KBB in excellent shape is under 10k, why are you offering him $11.6k?

I get the mileage is low, and yes it is super rare to find one of these with low miles. Please keep in mind this car is not old to enough to get into the collectors status yet where cars start fetching a premium.

If you really want it I'd offer somewhere in the 10's, I highly doubt anyone other than you would make him an offer over 11 for it.

Well I haven't committed to buying it yet, I was just trying to figure out if that was too much, which it sounds like it is.

HID's mean the eap package along w/ recaro's & sunroof & a few other things including wheels. Whats the add for eap package?

9k TOPS for that car, and it better be mint. Anything more is crazy.

You can have HID's without EAP.

In KBB there is no add for EAP, I guess they don't take that into account...

I'd let this one go unless the guy is willing to deal. 10k would be over paying, 11 is just crazy...

Yeah, from what you guys are telling me and what I've seen on another board, $10K is the max.
