part exchange value

Wondering if anyone knows what sort of trade-in price my GP would fetch?

the specs are:

Red,
'56,
Taxed until Aug,
MOT until Sept,
1.9M-Jet
45,000 Miles,
lowered on coilovers,
Subtle interior modifications like wrapping trim etc.

cheers

Re: part exchange value

Asking at a selection of local garages/dealerships would be better than asking here as trade in values vary on where and what you are thinking of buying next.

Re: part exchange value

Fords of Winsford has a free valuation which tallies with what I got offered at other garages so will give you an idea. Better selling private with your mods anyway as most garages will just send it to the auctions.

Yeah; I've just not had a chance to get to any dealerships lately because of work. Either new Astra or maybe upgrade to an Abarth GP.

Re: part exchange value

Problem you've got is you miss out the first-car-buyers with the coilies as they couldn't get insured. If it's not too expensive to get them off I'd fully recommend it then sell them separately, you should get a lot more for each separately. Without those, I'd say 3000 with no service history, 3500 with.

webuyanycar.com offered me 2500 for mine. Obviously would never actually use them but wanted to check anyway.

Re: part exchange value

As stated, you have some varying prices which will vary even more depending on what you want to part exchange against.

Re: part exchange value

It all seems very retarded to me to be honest, my girlfriend just traded her 07 plate corsa sxi with 54000 miles on the clock in for 3200.

My GP looks about 1000x better and is a diesel 1.9 and has done less miles, and yet i'm going to be getting less.

Can someone explain?

They're two completly different cars, throw a identicle Toyota Yaris in and you'd have got 1500 over the Corsa

You can't compare an apple against a Banana

The corsa is a more popular car therefore its secondhand value is higher, i'd rather have the GP 1.9 anyday.

Keep the GP and be a bit different from the rest of the herd

but I wouldn't expect to pay 32p for a banana and 25p for an apple. I'd say 'hoi, merchant! Explain your radical pricing system!?' yaddyaddyadda...

lol. Yeah, to be honest the car has been a liability since I bought it. Just one problem after another, I had a 1.2 gp b4 this one tho and I never had a single problem with it, beyond its slow and steady wins the race attitude. So im not writing gp's off by any means
