To break or to sell, that is the question!

Well, My 4x4 is back on the road so i've decided to get rid of the Marea.

I don't know whether to sell it as a whole, or break it.

I think i'd prefer to sell it as a whole... maybe i'll take the 17" alloys off it and put the steels back on.. i dunno.

What's everyones thoughts?

Re: To break or to sell, that is the question!

I am thinking 150 quid on steels, 250 with the 17" alloys. maybe less on the steels.. i can see me getting fed up and shoving it on "scrap my car"

As I have discovered with my Bravo not many people want parts or they want to pay nothing for them.

Better of selling the car whole I reckon.

Re: To break or to sell, that is the question!

The Marea was NEVER popular..

So you want a tradesman: window cleaner
In need of a cheap runabout.

Think mine is just fit for scrap tbh..
Runs ok..but too many daft niggles.

But 300 over 3 years is fine by me..

If I hadn't got my Alfa 145 I would be tempted to use the old girl as a tow car for my Cinquecento to get to track days.

Mine is doing 250 miles every weekend.

Cost 290 as a project in feb 2015..
Think its earnt its keep..

If it was a tidy low mile 20v...then it might be worth saving.. but its basically a diesel van...

Re: To break or to sell, that is the question!

Sell it whole,they are useful cars and its still running. I agree there cant be much demand for parts, you just never see them on the road now.
Ours is still in great shape, but then I have owned it since it was a year old.

There is a tidy red ELX jtd on ebay..350

Nicest trim in my opinion..the raised dimple fabric.
