Should I make the trade?

Im considering selling my 2008 white hot v6 with 53,000 miles and upgrading to one a PBM G8 GT with 75,000 miles. The pbm g8 is one of the first 888, and comes with two tone red/black leather. Its in very good condition and has a clean title. The car's 100,000 mile power train warranty is still in tact. His car is listed for 17,000 and i already have two offers on my car for 17,000 so the only thing i would have to pay is tax and license.

So.. should i give up my first car and pride-n-joy for a suped up twin with 23k more miles?

And.. just for clarity's sake..
MY CAR:
-white
-v6
-53,000 miles
-bone stock/base level interior (cloth, manual seats etc..)

THE G8 GT:
-black
-v8
-75,000 miles
-red/black leather
-first 888
-warranty

For sale: 2008 White Hot G8 base sedan. Asking $17,000

No chance that the car has is a gm certified car with an.extended warranty is there? I would say if there is some.sort of warranty that protects you from the normal defects that it might be worth it .

So long as it comes with maintenance records and its title is clean with no accidents I'd go for it if I were you.

depends where you are, california is generally more expensive. I'd say its probably worth anything from 17.9-23k. id sell it for 22 or 21.5. a quick sale would be around 18-19 probably, but thats just me id still look up a kbb or blue book value.

cargurus.com seems to have the most G8's of any site that ive seen. they have like 500 for sale or something like that.. i would check them out first and see what the cars are going for
