    would you have kept this

    so, my daughter bought a 2016 CR-V, and we went to finalize the financing last night. while there, i caught a conversation between a customer and salesperson. salesperson asked: any mods to it? customer: downpipe, cold air intake, aftermarket lip and drop in filter. that caught my attention to listen better. customer tells salesman: "it's been a garage queen for the last 4-5 year, maybe 300 miles a year. it's got 45K total now. i've had my fun, time to grow up a bit i think"

    he traded a 2007 Subaru WRX STI. silver with the silver wheels. i told him he's making a mistake. should have held on to it. kept it a garage queen for 10 more years. i see that car having alot of value down the road. btw, he got 21K for the trade. customer told me that and i didn't believe him, but then i asked the finance guy once we were doing our paperwork and he confirmed the 21K trade in.

    i ask...if it was yours, free and clear...would you have kept it or traded it?

    Would have kept. Wish my car was that low mileage.

    Any idea what he traded it for?
    I'm a big fan of Subarus AWD system. Not a fan of the boxer though. Have a N/A beater Subaru...it gets 28mpg, and about 500 miles per quart. Id take the money.

    Held onto it for sure, people are paying crazy money for clean/low mileage subies.

    On the flip side, based on what you overheard Ill bet he was just bored with it and/or disliked the "vape bro" community around them. Also, I can understand not wanting something you're not using taking up garage space. Having been in a similar position when I sold my Miata, I say good for him.
