Question 2005 6MT, 94K miles, Brembos - should I sell or hold on to it?

Hi, I love this car, but with kids now I am thinking about the utility of having a car my wife can't drive, lol. Without getting into all that...

It's in good condition, brand new Brembo brakes, tires, belts, and fluids, as of this week. In fact, the service guy fawning over it at the Honda dealer is what got me thinking about this. On KBB it says I'd only get like $3,500 for it, which really surprised me. I saw some private listings that seemed in the $5-8K range. It seems like my car has pretty low miles, and there were no 6MT for sale within 200 miles of me... what should I expect to get if I try to sell it? What would you pay for it?

Or, should I keep it?!

I think mileage or not the fact that it's a base will get you closer to 5K...
that is assuming maintenance is done...I'd guess 105K coming up and costly is a deciding factor.
If you're trading in don't be shocked to get 2500...carmax maybe 3000...maybe...then on here, 5 to 6 TOPS.
That's what I'd count on to make your decision on selling or keeping and next car feasibility.
