doesnt really matter what you've replaced on it mate, there are literally thousands of these cars going for anywhere between $500-$5000.

I'd say about $3500 and thats pretty optimistic. The Odo doesnt help ya, and nor do any of the bad points. To get a good price it would have to be mint, with nothing wrong.

the bad points always stand out. i dont go look at a car to buy and think to myself, gee this car must be good, all the lights work.

the paint issue will drag it down pretty bad.

2K in my money it's sad to say. The work that has been done doesn't matter at all. Might get to $2500 with the long rego. Trade-in will be much worse. If it's still nice to drive then keep it.

Price is relative to demand, people will pay what it is worth. I would pay next to nothing for a basic VS. I paid/would pay more for an S, because it is rarer, more appealing to me etc etc etc.
