Default Is this civic worth it?

Hey everyone, long time lurker, first time poster.

My buddy is selling his 98 Civic Hatchback. Granted it has some pretty nice mods and an awesome sound system with low kilometers, but is it worth $7,500?

Here is a link to his post on Kijiji:

He also sent me this list of mods he had done to the car:

It's a nice car, but not $7,500CAN nice. I don't know exactly what the conversion to USD would be, but I know it's more than I'd spend on an EK (even with that low of km on the odometer).

Honestly, with the mods done to it I'm surprised it doesn't have an Si cluster. I don't know how people can drive without a tachometer

Yeah I'd have to say not worth it, its a '98 stock under the hood. You can pick these up in good shape for under 4 grand with the same km's and do your own mods. The only thing I see on that car that is worth some money are the rims. Nice car, looks clean..just not worth that much
