Get Your Car in Order
Before you do anything else, make sure that your car is in good condition. This means cleaning it inside and out. You can do this yourself or take it to a valet and have them do it for you.
You should also have any mechanical issues fixed. Neither the classic or modern NSX have any very common issues, but there are still a few things that you need to look for. The classic’s aluminum bodywork, for instance, can be difficult to get repaired or resprayed, as a lot of shops don’t want to deal with the different requirements of aluminum. The ABS control unit has been known to cause issues on the classic, too.
There was also a recall of the modern NSX a few years back to fix leaky fuel pipes. If your Acura NSX hasn’t had this fixed, see if you need to get it fixed.
You should also get a folder full of any documents that you need to give the buyer, such as the logbook and manuals.
Next up, you need to take some pictures of your car. The key to taking good pictures is taking them at the right time of day. For the best lighting conditions, take pictures a few minutes before sunrise or a few minutes after sunset. You can also take photos at night if you want some more showy shots but avoid streetlights or a full moon, which can ruin lighting.
Be on the lookout for reflections too: nothing ruins photos of your car like distracting reflections on the bodywork or windows.
Pick Your Price and Write Your Ad
Now that your car is ready to be sold and you’ve taken pictures, it’s time to write your ad! The first thing you’ll need to do is set your price: we’d recommend looking at the average price that cars in similar condition and with a similar age and mileage sell for. If you want to sell it faster, you can price it below the market average. If you’re willing to write, you can list it for a higher price.
When you’re writing up your ad, be honest and explain any issues that the car has, but don’t focus on these. Treat it as a disclosure.
Focus on the car’s positive points. These could include:
- Low mileage
- Good interior and exterior condition
Let your mind run wild and let your awesome car sell itself.
