valueing your ride

Post  jonny54 on Mon Apr 18, 2011 7:20 pm

i think my topic title is spelt wrong, and also possibly in the wrong place? so appologies

basicly im having trouble deciding what to sell my car for. i have put so much effort into it recently (spent 2k on it to save it from the scrappy) and now ive decided to sell up and start a new project.
i will miss the car alot. im in a fair bit of debt and selling the car will pay off my parents at least as well as allowing me some money to get another Vw to get around in, which i will probably project.

the above link will take you to my for sale thread. could you please give me your honest opinions on the car and its worth as i dont want to rip myself off but neither do i want to rip anyone else off!
i have a dude coming to check it out tomorrow offering me the asking price to take it away and another dude that wants to come at the weekend. im starting to regret putting it up for sale, but it makes sense to sell up as im cannot afford to keep getting this car repaired

im looking at going down the mk3 polo route but am mesmorised by the caddy style with the flipped rear axel.

Cars like yours are really hard to value. It's not as simple as make, model, mileage, general condition, bang.

Yours has had a lot of love and the ad reads really well. You're not asking silly money but its only really an enthusiast who'll pay a premium for the extras that the general car buyer won't. That usually means waiting for the right buyer.

Myimmediate thought is that that sort of money gets you into gt tdi territory but then what do i know!

thanks for the above comment.
your right, about the gt tdi thing. i did some research before i put it up. a lad came round today with 2600 in his fist and that was that.

im looking at polo gti's at the moment, might be going to get one tonight. how exiting! Smile
