Sold my car this afternoon, without even advertising :D



  Chocolate Bar™
unbelieviably i sold my car this afternoon, got 4150 for it with the V6 spoiler (as i've decided it would wrong to take it off the car as it suits the back end). Lad off heres bought it (clio_sport) left me a 100 quid deposit for collection in 3 weeks! Hopefully she'll stay in the club and be well looked after, as i've spent thousands modifying her and keeping her as mint as possible. Will be sad to see her go, but its time to move on better and faster things! As such i'm in a position to buy a ph 1 172, got 4500 to spend on the right car so if anyones considering selling let me know :)

Sorry to everyone who were hoping i would split it :rasp:

Shame to see you sell it... you've obviously treated it like a king. All the best in the 172 search like you say onto faster things now, good move ;)

yeah indeed! could prob get a ph2 for a similar price but to be honest really want a ph1 as i actually love the look of them. Already went to look at a flame red one today with 27k on it but the guy at the garage was a c**t and wanted 6k for it. Also had 17s on it so told him to take them off and put me some steelies on as it wouldnt sell with those on... needless to say he wasnt impressed and was wuick to tell me he'd been in the business for 30 years and that he knew best. Also needed new brake pads, steering wheel was shot as were the door pockets (silver bits), all of which he refused to sort. Also had a saxo 16v badge on it and a bmw M power badge :| On the plus side bodywork was mint as were the seats. Doubt i'll be going to buy that one though lol

Sure, take your time dude! I remeber the weeks I spent looking for one, brought the second one i saw :D

looks like a stunner mate, got a few options though at the mo. I've requested a few details on your thread ;)

clio-sport your pug was very nicely done! what colour are you thinking for the car? I nearly had her fully resprayed in a dark aprillia rosso red, but decided to sell instead :)

I may be forced to sell mine over the new couple of months, but depends how finances are after my mortgage is sorted.

As for the steering wheels and silver door pockets: get used to seeing a lot of wrecked ones because they're almost all like that!

Nice one for the quick sale though. :)
 
  Mini Cooper
yeah think it was a fair price for the car, so snapped it up!!

mark, im probs gonna go for a blue colour as long as I can find one that warrants spending £1000+ on it!!
 
  Chocolate Bar™
good stuff look forward to seeing pics of it! you'll have to keep me updated with her progress ;)

so was this a good deal we both got!!? £4000 sound about right!?

a car of my spec and milage sells for 4k without any mods so i'd say so lol

Pretty good price, most modified cars sell for less than the standard equivalent, but obviously this car has a lot of history and is really well cared for, so standard spec price is about right.

i agree with that mate, so all in all, think it was just about right!! but i get the added bonus of knowing its been properly looked after and all the work has been done properly, and using high quality parts!! :approve:
