    Well, it was fun while it lasted but the wife says the Supra has to go...just felt like I bit off a little more than I can chew car payment wise and have a third kid on the way so there’s really no justification at least in the wife’s eyes for me to keep it. This might be the first realistic “for sale” Supra that isn’t asking double what I paid. I get I will never make my money back with my markup, taxes, titling etc so the price is $59,950. Car was ceramic coated day one, paint corrected and then sealed. 700 miles on the dash. Car is in Destin, FL

    Let her drive it once. That should solve the problem :)
    Sorry to hear that! I feel your pain! Your wife does seem to have a point there though regarding finances.
    I know lease terms aren't great, but perhaps you can still lease it with cheaper monthly payments..

    Wtf.... I'd always choose the car.

    A wife and a kid can't go 4 seconds 0-60.

    If I would live in the USA I'd take it.

    You’re best bet to get more of your money back may be Ebay. I haven’t seen one on BAT yet so you could break ground there.

    If my Supra does not arrive this week I’ll be in touch. Great looking car!
    The black paint job on this car is just magnetic to look at.
    Congrats on the little one on the way!!!

    No rock chips, the car is filthy despite how good it looks in photos and will snap new photos once washing is complete to verify. I foam gun/pressure wash and dry with a leaf blower. Nothing touches the paint.

    Sucks about having to sell it so soon. I usually go into every deal knowing my numbers, even then things happen in life that we don’t see. I will say are sure the loss is worth it vs trying to see if you can make it work.
