I was wondering how much you all think I will be able to get for my red X reg (2000) 146 2 litre TI. I have attached a photo of it for you to look at. I wanted ask before I put up an ad on here and elsewhere.
It has a FSH, all the stamps etc and I have spent a lot of money keeping her up and running. The engine is fine and has done 137k miles.
She isn't perfect and there are a couple of things wrong, the main problem being a steering issue. She pulls to the left so I have to hold the steering wheel to the right. I know its not a tracking problem and I am having it investigated but I am not willing to spend the money to get it fixed unless doing so will give me a decent price for her. So far I am thinking it is a problem with the strut top mounts but not sure yet. She also has a couple of dents and chips but she is 10 years old so thats to be expected.
As I said I have had a lot of work carried out and I will be happy to put up a comprehensive list if required but the most recent things are new wishbones, 4 new tyres, new rear discs and pads, new uprated front discs and pads and a new crankshaft sensor.
I know that having all this work done won't add to the value of the car and I am not expecting much. I would like £1000 but I really don't think I will get that, especially with the issues describred. If I can get £700 then I will be happy with that I just don't want to see her go for peanuts.
Also the tax runs out at the end of march but I may be willing to get 6 months if I can get a decent price as it will cost me £104.
Lastly, would anyone be interested in taking her off my hands, I am asking here because I would like her to go to someone that will look after her as it is a great car IMO, would certainly suit a tinkerer that knows about cars (I don't have a clue unfortunately lol). PM me with questions or offers. I might even consider a PX
P.S. I am located in Somerset.
