sell or trade: 89 Civic Si 168k new tires/full exhaust/headers

Car is stock with 4-2-1 headers/resonated test pipe/resonator/straight through cross mounted large oval exhaust with 4.5" tip and silencer all stainless, only been on a week and quiet under 4k. Also just put in HID's last month for the low beams and have yet to get flashed by anyone. Brand new Falken tires for the front a couple weeks ago, others are same tires with 6k or so on them a year old, brand new tie rods in and out with alignment. Getting an AEM CAI for it. Timing belt replaced around 130k, just put new cap/rotor/plugs and short shifter with energy bushings. Brand new radiator a few weeks ago, passanger axle last year. Moonroof does not leak at all.
I'm the second owner, the interior needs cleaned and the seats have tears in the front on the sides. I've been running Mobil 1 synthetic for a year. It runs great, gets great mileage, will have to see what I get with new exhaust and 15lb wheels. It has some rust bubbling on the rear quarters, it was repaired and painted Porsche red 2 years ago, rail underneath the passanger side is rotting but I'll try and get a plate welded on that soon.
I really like the car but my dad wants me to get something newer that doesn't have any rust. Going to try and find another hatchback and don't care what motor is in it, the 105hp is enough for me for daily driving.
I hate to part with it and will miss it but he may be right and it's best used as a hobby car not a daily driver, maybe no more winter driving. Dunno what to ask $2.5k? I've probably put $1k into it this year for tires/exhaust/misc replacements. And I do my own work so no labor. The a/c was working great but a raccoon took out the condensor and discharge line, in the process of getting a new line and I could get a condensor for $75 not sure if I should fix before selling or if it's not worth it. It was leakign at the connection. Also the hood is dinged up but have a lime green one that could go with it in great shape just needs painted to match. The windshield is new.

I do have the original catalytic converter as well, just needs to be cut apart from the pipes as the flanges kinda welded themselves together with rust, still flows fine. I was thinking of just getting a high flow cat in a bit.
