What's It Worth? (Sorry)

Recommended Posts

So, I have got my car back from paint, and would like some advice on value please.

 

205-1.jpg

205-2.jpg

 

Non-sunroof 1.6 shell.

 

Full leather, in great condition and solid bolsters, not crazed, split or cracked.

GTI-6 conversion

 

Speedline refurbished wheels, unmarked, wrapped in NS2-R 100 compound tyres

 

EBC brakes all round, yellowstuff pads (gti-6 brakes all round)

 

Full respray in red as pictured.

 

10 months MOT

 

Free of rust, generally very tidy

 

On the 'to do' list to make it 100% would be:

 

Replace or fix split in dashboard near the cluster, on the underside.

 

Fix heater controls, currently the heater fan is activated by a switch.

Mileage, owners, history, other notable mods beyond the GTi-6 swap, leathers and brakes?

 

Does look very nice though - assume that the paint job is as good up close as it appears in the picture?

Paint job is great, not a 5 yard finish happily :)

 

141k miles.

 

Owners I am not sure, will check out the V5, but it's single figures I am fairly certian.

No other notable mods, other than being freshly serviced and bushes changed for MOT, and decent alignment done, but that's more servicing.

I'd guess around £5-6k then if you're selling, add a bit on if it's for an agreed insurance valuation.

 

Always hard to value stuff as so many of the asking prices out there are frankly laughably optimistic and modifications tend to narrow down the pool of would-be buyers.

 

My general viewpoint is that it's difficult to get anything MOT'd and usable for sub-£2k now, £3-4k for an immediately usable car in reasonable condition, tidy average mileage cars are £4-6k and anything low mileage (<80k) and very tidy seems to be knocking on £10k nowadays.

I personally value my 1600 ph1 93k 3 owner car freshly painted at 7/10 quality, no rust, perfect interior and good history in graphite at 5k

Paint job wasn't engine out - it wasn't needed in there as it was red still, unlike the rest of the car which was orange, like they tend to be.

 

It's been converted for a while, with power steering still working. It's a really neat and tidy job for a change, I will snap some pictures when I get a moment :-)

Maybe this will sound picky but for top money it needs a few niggles sorted out for me.

Just from those pics, rear bumper red insert, front driving lamps, and front bumper alignment need addressing. I'm sure looking at the car in the metal there could be other bits. If you want top money for it then a prospective (picky) buyer needs to be able to walk round without pulling it on anything obvious.

Thanks for the thoughts and feedback, I was more thinking for insurance as I haven't been the most lucky of late (somebody stole my project MX5 turbo with a freshly build forged engine, and the wife wrote off my daily 123d) so I am thinking that going belt and braces is probably a good plan.

Should selling be a thing, for sure I'll get it looking 100%. This is as it came back to me on Tuesday night from a while away having the paint done - so it does need some fettling.

 

Good to have it back though :D

A bumper dye and some cherry red paint on the inserts will transform the look of it
