SE and SXT owners modding then upgrading to an RT
Is is just me...but why does it seem that SE and SXT owners want to mod the crap out of their car to make it look like an RT or SRT8? Then, after they spend $100's to $1000's of dollars on new exhausts, catch cans, tinted windows, stripes and badges, bigger tires, etc., they then want to trade it in on an RT.
Someone recently went on an endless rant about a dealer who didn't want to buy his 2010 SE at the Blue Book price (dealers work off of Kelley Black Book, I believe) and sell him a 2012 RT at a low ball price. The car was, of course, over modded and seriously, who would want an SE (even in perfect condition) when there are a lot of better options unless the selling price was very low.
I don't know. It seems that some people are pissing their money away (which is their perrogative) on buying a lesser car and modding it only to have second thoughts later on an RT or SRT8. I say...buy the car you want the first time...even if you have to wait and save up the $$$...so you won't lose your shirt on the trade in later on.
