I'm only posting this because you asked for advise. Otherwise i would keep the following thoughts to myself. Cracked windshield twice? How many rock chips in the paint? Not the original owner, so how do we know it was carefully maintained by previous owner? At $9000 more than I paid for my less mileage '06, I Don't think I will be sending a link to any of my friends. Good luck with the sale.

But it's 2 years newer than your 06 and a GXP to boot. Shouldn't we saying that we hope he could sell it for more money to appreciate the value of ours?

Good luck with the sale KhaoticProphecy

Asking price is pretty high. There's a new GXP just posted for 22,500 (1080 miles and showroom kept)

.
$17,500 would be a better place for you to start.

AutoTrader add mentions a RK Sport spoiler. I would perhaps be interested in this. Please post a pic or PM me with pic and price.

Just a note. I bought my 08 GXP a month ago, from the original owner. Mean yellow, 5300 miles, like new condition. I paid $17,000 for it, so your price seems way high. Just saying...

Early on there were a number of cars that experienced cracking in the windshields. From the factory. With no apparant cause.

If you go back and read some of the posts from 07 and early 08 we learned a lot about our windshields. JinKY does windshields for a living. Turns out that even a single rock chip within an inch of the edge of the windshield can generate a source for thermally driven stress to cause the windshield to fail.

Also the forum rules are if an individual is attempting to sell, comments are limited to inqueries to get more information to support a decision to buy. Negative comments are not to be included in for sale posts.

Thanks for cooperating:thumbs:

I am also accepting advice
Edited because it sounded a little desperate, let the car and price do the talking.

Seller Comments
All scheduled maintenance performed during ownership, excellent mechanical, interior, exterior, and driving condition. Along with exterior detailing being performed on a every other week basis. Spark plugs and the parking brake mechanism has recently been replaced, along with a (Mobile 1?) oil change.

No accidents (dings?) and never seen snow. I am the 2nd owner and purchased this from the original owner based on it being excellently maintained and looking brand new.

The car is being currently driven so mileage will continue to increase a little. Aftermarket modifications include; (insert make of wheels and sizes here) Dejon cold air intake system, General Motors Performance Product (GMPP) tune that increases the OEM 260HP to a GM verified 290HP). The GMPP tune really turns this vehicle into a sports car that is very enjoyable to drive and listen to the exhaust sounds as you shift through the five manual gears. OEM options should be listed under cars Ebay info, PW/PS/PB, etc. Or listed in the in the first paragraph (Pontiac Solstice GXP, 2.0 Turbo, Manual, leather seats, PS/PB/PW, etc..

The reason it is being sold is due to simply needing a larger vehicle. However, this car has been nothing but a blast to own, and I hope it's next owner will enjoy it just as much as I have.

I will also sell my RKSport spoiler designed specifically for the Solstice. Please contact me if you are seriously interested or have additional questions. Fairly price but I'm open to serious offers. In addition, I reserve the right to end this auction early due to the vehicle being advertised locally.

RKSports spoiler? Indicate it was or wasn't used. But if it was mounted on the car than put it back on because nothing looks worse than seeing that something was obviously removed from a vehicle. Also, place for sale signs inside the car window. For example $20K/BO, w/clearly listed selling price and email and phone number, along w/making up 20 or 30 fact sheets (8X11 Xerox), listing the same info you have on Ebay (along w/including a pic of the car on the fact sheet), and place them under your windshield blade. BTW, don't write the price directly on the For Sale sign, write it on a separate piece of paper and tape in blank area of the For Sale sign. That way if you decide to lower the price you just replace the paper w/the revised price.

I've sold two cars like this and was amazed at how many times I had to replace the fact sheet. In addition, keep the car clean at all times, and do not let tire kickers take it for a test drive. Go ahead and start it up to let them hear how it sounds but let everyone know that test drives are only being given before payment occurs. Sounds harsh but it helps determine who the tire kickers are from who the buyers are. Regardless, be honest, be fair, and be respectful to everyone indicating interest. Good luck.

I understand the rules, and did not violate them. Maybe the seller violated them by asking for advice in a for sale post. He asked for opinions so I as well as others gave them. Please don't single me out for responding to a request for advice.
