Change of Job = Change of Car

Thanks to the bankers and general economic climate means I have lost my job with the NHS. Thankfully I have managed to secure a new job starting in January. However instead of an 11 mile daily commute I have a 100 mile round trip to endure. That means my beloved HGT has to go to finance a cheap boring diesel. I have it for sale on Pistonheads:-

http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/2477060.htm

I would rather it go to an enthusiast however I cannot go much lower in price due to tight finances otherwise I will sadly have to drive it into the ground. So please no silly offers as it's a good car all round.

Kind regards,

Simon

Re: Change of Job = Change of Car

Thanks mate - spread the word!!! I've got to say it's been my most surprising car to date and great fun. But she deserves better than to commute that sort of distance every day.

Re: Change of Job = Change of Car

Wow! Someone bought a factory fit cd player off the extras list. I think it was a 120 extra..... Very low millage considering you use it everyday.

Thinking of waiting till spring to sell mine, I fear big engined cars will become harder and harder to sell.....

Saying that, if you own one it will be a rare car!


Good luck!

Re: Change of Job = Change of Car

Wasn't fussed about the leather when I bought the car - tried other ones with leather but this one came out head & shoulders over them on more important things i.e. Condition, performance, history etc. As for the price - depends whether you want a car for 1350 with no major issues or a cheaper one that you'll end up paying more. Thought is was a fair price for a genuine car.

Re: Change of Job = Change of Car

they may be dropping in price, but in my opinion low mileage is worth much more than average prices. but still he can always drop the price or accept a offer if nothing comes along.

I paid 1350 or so for my 1.8 4 or 5 years ago with 38k on the clock, and would pay not much less for another with the same mileage now. Its just a case of waiting for the right buyer to come along for this car, and trust me eventually someone will take this.

bravos are always going to have a strange charm, you either love them or hate them. I know a few lads who have had bravo's, and they all say they would go back to one if a minter came along.

Re: Change of Job = Change of Car

have to say, thats a nice example and if i was in teh market for a HGT then you would be getting a handful of pound notes, not that bothereed by leather either (even though i have it, think i prefer the cloth) but a car is worth what someone is willing to pay for it, i was just offered a 52 plate vw caddy van tdi as a swap for my wagon, but i was not interested and th caddy is worth alot more in cash value.

cheers

Re: Change of Job = Change of Car

C'mon chaps - there must be someone out there in the club who knows a mate after a decent Mk2 155 HGT? I'll take 1000 cash with no haggling - otherwise it's not worth getting rid of it to be honest......
