Considering selling the automobile

Right.

I've got a new job, I can walk/cycle there in 10-25 minutes.
Now, I'm considering getting rid, and saving up for say, 6-12 months for something I want more. I don't do a lot of commuting, only usually for car parts...but that wouldnt be needed.
I'd save money on;

Petrol
Insurance
Mods
Car Washes (dont comment on this haha)

So, give me your honest opinions on what you would do or what other info you would like.
Also what do you reckon the value is:

Car - 20,000 miles, 56 reg, FSH, 1.4 sporting, Gloss black roof
Abarth Replica Headlights -
Rear LED lights -
Linea Front Splitter -
Linea Rear Diffuser -

Help/Opinions needed.

Re: Considering selling the automobile

if you think that you wont need it then could be worth it

give it a dry run and try not use your car for a good week or more
Thanks Booth thanked for this post

Re: Considering selling the automobile

But yeah personally I'd love to do that, with the money saved on insurance I could afford to do loads to my car over that year, or even upgrade to something better!

Re: Considering selling the automobile

Depends if that's all you use your car for or if needed do you have access to another car.

Re: Considering selling the automobile

The only thing stopping me I think, is it would be taking away my independence to an extent and my main hobby really. But if if I save up for 6-12 months, I could save for a better car and insurance.


Still no opinions on price?

If you sell it and sometimes you need a car, do you have an other option ( dads car)?
If you do, then don't even think about it. Go for it...
I'm now thinking on selling mine and get stuck with my girlfriends polo
but only for a good cause ( motorbike...).

Re: Considering selling the automobile

Check Autotrader, see what similar spec cars are going for.

Be aware that as it is modified it will put most buyers off.

Getting rid of your car if you don't need it is the most sensible thing you can do. There is little else in the world that is such a waste of money as cars...hookers and cars.
