208K Miles 09 Si keep or sell

Decided to make my own post so I did not have to hi-jack someone else thread with my issues.

Looking for guidance as I am at odds whether I should hold onto my 09 FA5 with 208k miles. Poor girl is looking rough with paint spots, no front bumper, warped wing/back end, scratches and dings . The main saving grace is that the engine seems to be running smooth. Should I put money in and fix her up or let her go to a dealer or personal buyer? ughh I cant decide.

Personally, I say keep it. I don't imagine you will get much for it in its current condition.

Same time I am not sure it's worth putting money into it.

Post some pics and see it's condition

I think about the same thing, man. My 09 si is my baby, and just like yours the engine is in top shape, has never had issues, all original parts... and I had paint correction and ceramic coating done on the exterior a while back so the paint only looks a few years old tbh.

I think about selling to put down money for a newer car, but I feel like the mileage just by itself, even though i personally know the car is in amazing shape (as you can tell by looking at it and driving it) will make it so it could only fetch a few thousand bucks at that. Haven't checked KBB for 09 si with 230k but I'm sure it's not great.
