Is NADA generally better for car values or is KBB more accurate?

NADA values are way higher from what I'm seeing.

Do your own research. See what cars are going for. Compare and make your own conclusion.

To be honest, I've found that people use which ever book best suits their position.  If buying they use the one with the lowest numbers, if selling they use the one with the highest.  Do some research and go on dedicated car forums to get a sense of what the cars are actually selling for.  Wishing you luck!

I looked up your home track on youtube. It has similar traits to my home track, (small, lined with barriers that make you cringe). That's why I don't drive there anymore. lol! I drive 400 miles to a little slice of heaven in Oregon called Oregon Raceway Park. I don't know what other tracks you have near your place, but if you ever find yourself near a great track, see if you can find a way to drive it.

This particular track is fairly low speed, (I only hit about 120mph), but it's extremely technical. It's like driving your own rollercoaster! The suspension demands and being aware of what your car is doing with all these crests, off-camber turns, dips, etc is quite simply, extremely challenging and insanely fun! 

 

Videos never do a track justice, but this video taken from my friend's bumper, helps to show the elevation changes and what this track is all about. I'm driving the black car in front of this 3-car train. Speed is tough to convey in videos too, but for reference, the first left hand turn you see (~0:16 mark, turning left over a blind crest), I'm doing 100mph (160kph).

@ridethecliche - I've never a Miata, have ridden one, and cracks me to see some old guy a Miata lap Mustang GTs in a 20 minute session. I don't see anything wrong with it if you don't need the space.

NADA and KBB a decent starting point, but accounting for things like the father/son work. You won't have that taken into account. Also, if you really want a particular combo - like an interlagos Blue E46 M with ZCP, you might have to play the piper a bit.

For the love of God, Porsche, just release the fucking Panamera Sport Turismo already...

Aw man, they canceled the Viper. Sad to see it go, but not real surprised with how badly they butchered the marketing on the Gen 5. It solved the liveability issues of the previous gens but couldnt escape the reputation. Gen 5 is one of the best looking cars ever made in Detroit.

I love the roll Porsche has been on models wise, then they win LeMans at Toyota's expense (and showed humility about it). I'm guessing the guys at Stuttgart will be hungover for at least 2 weeks straight if Germany wins Euro 2016.

The camber changes are awesome. That track looks really fun. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

It is!

The track can be run in both directions. In the other direction, you get crazy G's in the half-pipe. I have a data logger and I've pulled 1.42g's in there. :)

 

 

Here's one lap at a decent pace in that direction. I need to keep working on the nut behind the wheel. That's the weakest part of the car :)
