So are you going to go without a car then? You won't find one cheaper to run than the Cinq.

The basic car minus mods is worth up to about 1800, depends what people want to pay for the extras. Not wanting to depress anyone but you rarely get back much of the modding expense when you sell on.

i think the only things on the car that will add alot of value to the overall price are the alloys and maybe the novalty of the paint job. It may be your pride and joy but to someone else its just a car with some fancy bits.

I personaly wouldnt want to pay more than 1500 for a cinq anyway and i may budge to 2000 for yours with your mods.

No..i know id never get back the full amount ive paid for the mods, which is why i wanted your opinions.. i think bushboy has summed it up, in that people rarely want to pay that much for a cinq, and when one has been modified they then have the choice of getting either a modded cinq, or a modded corsa.. which, most people who are interested in modifying would go for the corsa.
I want to make sure if i put it up for sale i put it up for a reasonable price, so i do get some interest.. (hopefully) but at the same time i cant afford to let it go for 2 grand!!

[xx(] Corsas are horrible

I think with the sale of the car you will get loads of interest from first time drivers. between 17-21 but older people (if they want a modded car) can usualy afford to do it themselves and so will buy a standard car and do it exactly how they want etc. However with the younger people the insurance will be high and 2000 will probably be too much for them and so the interest will drop. Obviously there are older people that can afford it that will want an already modded car but i must admit, before i found this site ide never seen or heard of modding a cinq. If i think of modded cars i think of a Nova, Renult 5, Escort, pug 205 and golfs. If people are looking for modded cars in magazines etc to buy then most of the time they wont even look at fiats.

I recon with the right interest you will get atleast 2000 (although it looks like its worth a ton more) but put something like 2500 ono and then set your limits

Stick it in the Modded section of Autotrader for 3k and see what interest you get...can't hurt! With the car advertised to the right buyers you'l be surprised what yuo can sell! Also try the classifieds in various modding mags... especially the ones you've been featured in! Pretty car.... pretty car :) *strokes screen*
