Jon Gosselin -- Failed Used Car Salesman

12/22/2009 2:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The same day Jon Gosselin's divorce was finalized -- and he was hit with huge child support payments -- we've learned he tried (and failed) to pad his wallet by trading in his beloved BMW for a profit.


TMZ spoke to an employee at Auto Exchange USA in Lancaster, PA, who told us Jon showed up at the car lot on Friday and wanted to trade his 2005 BMW M3 for a 2008 Subaru STI (pictured above) PLUS around $4,000 in cash.

We're told Jon's car wasn't worth nearly as much as he thought it was -- so he ended up leaving the lot without ever making a trade.

You are the coo coo, loonie, zombie and all the other stupid names you come up with. Use any name you want. You don't fool us with your illiterate postings...they give you away. I can use pevans because it is my real name.

Lets do the math:

2005 BMW M3 is worth about $23k tops
2008 Subaru STi is $30k

That comes out to -7k short Jonny boy.

Id offer him a deal.

2003 Subaru STi with 100k miles, and $4k for the 2005 BMW M3, if it had low miles, under 30k on the clock.

Kate's hot after she got that tummy tuck. I'd hit it. Don't understand why doing the tummy tuck after sextuplets wasn't part of the whole post birthing procedure.

Don't know why you all think Kate's a crazy bitch. Someone had to man up in the family and Jon sure wasn't doing that. He should have put Kate in her place from day one. That would have set the tone for the rest of the show. He didn't establish himself as a parental enforcer early on, so Kate basically had to deal with 9 kids, not 8.
