Fierce Fit competition

Of course, now that my Fit is tidied up and ready to sell, suddenly there are TWO other Fits for sale in my area! Last time I saw another available here was a couple of years ago!

And they're both the more desirable Sport trim, with working AC...

I actually know where that blue one lives - walk past it almost every day. I've been eyeing it for years. A little old lady with 2 big dogs owns it.

So I may sit on mine for a week and wait for these to clear out. Mine will be a tougher sell with non-functional AC.

(Though I just verified this AM that part of the AC problem may simply been a blown AC clutch relay ... I swapped it with a known good relay and it's now activating, but the air coming out is still barely cooler than ambient, if at all.)

The car had its photoshoot last evening - I always shoot and show vehicles in my folks' driveway because it's a much nicer neighbourhood than mine. Location, location...

Thinking of asking $2400 as is or 2700 with the provincial inspection.
