Hello,
Just wondering if we had any original owners on here or people that were lucky enough to still have the retail purchase sticker for their GVR4.
I was curious on the price of the car new plus the price of the options that were offered which I think was just the moon roof. I wonder also if there was much difference between 91 and 92 price wise. Anyway I know someone on here has the information, thanks!!
BEN

If someone can, scan it and put it under the "Read Me First" heading in the Tecnnical Questions area section. Then we all can see it when we want, and it's usefull.......

I got my window sticker in the glove box of the car. I'll look for a scanner today.

Here's a picture of one from my 1991 VR-4. Owner paid full price back in Dec of 1990.

I just wish the VR-4 I'm keeping had all this paperwork.

Oh, I just remembered that the other options for both years were different radio options such as CD players.

The third option was "premium audio system" or something to that affect. I'll try to scan my window sticker in tonight and post it. That's the only option my car had. NO CD, and no sun-roof.

The window sticker on my dad's 92 GVR4 had the sticker price of $24,865. It did have the sunroof and CD player, but who in their right mind would pay almost $25G for a GVR4? Not me. We got his car when it was 1 year old with 20K on it for $15K, in flawless condition.

Reminds me of all the Evo 8 discussions floating around... Does anyone know how to do a "1991 dollars" calculation? What would the Evo 8 sell for in 1991, or what would a GVR-4 sell for today?

To answer my own question... if this is the right way to do it... The average rate of inflation from 1996 onwards is 4.6%. I applied this back to 1991. If the GalantVR4 was $21,000 in 1991, the same vehicle would cost $35,61.35 in "2003 dollars".

I thought that some publication did the write-up and the sticekr for an ordinary galant was about $14k.

Typically cars go up at about 4% per year if you believe the Mits dealer. I think the cause is primarily inflation but there are likely other factors.

I would gladly pay $35k for a 2003 Galant VR-4 (left hand drive of course). If we ever get these again, I will pay sticker.

I was talking about the value of the dollar (inflation), not the value of the car (appreciation or depreciation). Yeah if there was a never-driven 1991 VR-4 sitting on a lot it would probably have a lower than $21,000 sticker.

If we were talking about the value of a particular 1991 or 1992 VR-4 it would likely be negative numbers. My VR-4 is worth about $-200 right now. I keep throwing money at it to get that number up but it just keeps slipping. [Smile]

Wow, I'll have to try and scan mine when I go home this weekend, but I believe mine was stickered at around $26,000 [Eek!]

Too bad our stupid belts weren't an option. Would save me a lot of conversion trouble.

no shit... i hate automatic seatbelts. at least ours are in a little better position than the tel ones. if only i had a dollar for every time i've been whacked in the head by the ones on my brothers tsi... unfortunately i'm too lazy/broke to do the conversion.

anyway, to keep this on topic, i found my original window sticker when i was goin through the documentation the previous owner had a few weeks ago. i was so pumped, i love stuff like that. kinda spooked me when i saw theymightbegalants'. mine looked almost identical to that one, except mine was originally sold in kansas city and i'm pretty sure it came into the country on the pacific coast (washington?, i think). colors, options, price numbers, etc. all match up exactly.

That windowsticker isn't mine (or the one to my car). I just happened to have it in my vast archive of car crap. I don't know whose (or which car's) it is.

Here is my window sticker for my 1992, #334/1000

 -

I found some other papers stuffed in the owners manual, the car only had 18 miles on it when I signed the papers and I think I put 10 or so of those one during the test drive.

I got the car out the door in California, including sales tax and registration for just over what is listed as the sticker price. At the time I bought the car, the dealer had 4 or 5 '91's still on the lot and another 4 or 5 '92's. I liked the looks of the wheels and the monochrome/lack of chrome on the '92 better than the '91. I still can't believe I paid an extra $500 for a CD player...

The car now has around 130,000 miles.

btw, if anyone's interested... to get X year's cost and compare it with Y years cost, you need to use the consumer price index. its not 100%, but close enough for the economists to use...
http://woodrow.mpls.frb.fed.us/research/data/us/calc/

Galant in 1991= approx. 25k
Galant in 2003= $33,733

for that much money, i'd have to get into an STI.

Well hey, they save like 3% in your ins [Smile] At least they are good for something. I don't mind them so much in the Galant. My last 3 cars have had them. I guess I am just getting used to them being normal.

I finally got my sticker out and looked up the price. I'll have to post a pic of it later when I can get it sent to this computer, but... My car had a 10% dealer markup on it. The final price on the sticker was just under $26000 [Eek!] So apparently Mitsu dealers have marked up prices in the past too, not just on the EVO.
