honestly, they aren't going to give you jack shit for your mods unless they are dealer options like TRD kit, wing, window tint, rims, etc.

I'd take off all your mods and trade it in as stock (then sell your mods), because you'll make the most money that way.

The absolute best thing to do is part out your car, and then sell it privately with it's stock parts put back on. The only benefit with a trade in is you can trade in your vehicle and that amount will bring down the price of the vehicle you are trading for and then what is left over on the new vehicle you will be taxed on that remainder.. so thus you save on taxes. But you may do better or equal if you sell the vehicle privately because that way you'll get more cash.

Best of luck though, don't make any hastey decision, a $5000 or so lesson I learnt the hard way.

i dont know how to take the header off and put the stock one on properly, i dont even wanna fuck with my ur pullies. and um the exhaust is TRD the rims are new and are 17's 5zigens not stock ones. im using them more as collateral for lowering the gts price then money value i guess. the car does look hot.

Unless the car dealership is in da Hood, they aren't gonna lower the price on the GTS because of your rims.

Just take them off and sell them, and replace them with the stock rims, if you have them.
