Default Do mods add value when selling?

Reluctantly my 07 platinum edition has to go to pay medical bills, and I am wondering if the usual performance mods add value.I installed the SRT8 ECU, the mandrel bent TFE coated pipes, modified air intake, urethane bushings, new Cooper tires and Wolf brake pads. The exterior is like new, with chrome wheels etc, interior has sliding sunroof etc.etc.The platinum edition is not listed in Kelly BB, $5000 is the top value given.Should I expert more? Every dollar counts at this point.

better off selling it hands-on to someone else than trading into to a local dealer.
They raise the offer on yours to make it sound good, blah blah crap.

Usually no. In fact can hurt value. Especially performance mods. Tells me someone ran the crap out of it. Condition and clean mean the most. It will come down to weather you or buyer are in the most want or need. You will be lucky to get list price. Really depends on how popular they are in your area.
