Default What Kind of Value?

I recently purchased a used RS4 from a friend of mine. I am positive it was an excellent deal. I only paid $150 for the car and everything he had to match it. I was just curious about the price I could get out of this car if I decided to sell it. I have also included some pictures to help explain what the car has.

HPI RS4 Upgrade Parts

Full Anodized Aluminum Chassis
Foam Racing Tires
O.S. Max .15 Engine (Excellent Compression)
Full MIP CVDs
Aluminum Shock Towers
Sway Bar Kit
Anodized Aluminum Heatsink
HPI CVEC Tuned Pipe
Full Turnbuckles
Aluminum Wheel Lugs
-and anything else I've missed

Sorry about the poor picture quality. They were taken with my phone's camera.

Its a good looking ride, but unfortunately, the value goes down as soon as it becomes yours.

I'd say high 100's to low-mid 200's. I mean a new RS4 costs 310 on tower and this one just has a couple hop ups on it, but you have to think that an online buyer will expect the engine to be shot so they won't pay nearly as much.

The main reason the car was so cheap was because the owner is an adult who just had a baby. He used to race the car and had wona couple with it. I got such a good price because he knew he would probably never run it anymore... I just posted a list of a couple of upgrades the car has. I don't even know everything the car has on it. The engine is in great condition. The compression is so good, the flywheel won't hardly spin at TDC. It also came with a case filled with parts like spare CVDs. I think it was a pretty sweet find since I'm only 15. Its kind of sad how low the resale value on cars is. I used to have a MT-2 that I put well over 1,000 dollars in over the course of a few years and only resold it for like 100 bucks. We need JUSTICE!
