Selling my below Alfa 156 - Tips on price/where to put ad
I'm going to sell my Alfa 156 and I was wondering if you could give me a rough idea of what price I should be looking for while I'm going to provide as much details as possible to give some hints.
It's a late 2001 Silver 156 Petrol - Lusso, with cloth interiors, air conditioning, abs, airbags, alloys. I bought this Alfa in 2010, off a friend that moved abroad(and He was the only owner).
He never had any problems, always looked very well after it and I did the same.
Mileage as per the last MOTs :
2010 - 83000
2011 - 88000
2012 - 93000
2013 - 97000
It saled through this year MOT this morning with not a single problem/warning.
Cam belt was replaced at 80000 miles, it has all its own original parts/etc so grey cloth interior and new original mats bought in 2010 together with a new original battery.
Discs, calipers, pads and tyres all replaced 4000 miles ago and therefore almost new.
It drives superbly and never let me down at all, so engine, electrics, etc all perfect.
Mileage is pretty low and only ever driven around 4000/year (10 miles a day to get from the office and back).
Now selling the car as no longer needed and know that I'm selling a very reliable car.
No dents but some scratches on the front bumper.....the driver sun visor is a bit dodgy so I'm going to replace it.
I've got all the MOT's/receipts and original log books but only one key.
I was hoping to get around £1400...do you think I could aim to this? Is it about right? Would you sell to more? Less ?
Also, I'm in Norwich, where do you think I could/should put the advert ? Ebay might reach a larger audience but I'm always a bit concerned that it would attract all sorts of timewasters and also take a chunk of the sale away....never actually sold anything of this sort of value, only small things.
I suppose this could potentially be a good place as well ? I know it's silly but I like the idea of selling to someone that loves Alfas instead of at a random bloke off ebay/etc.
Also, TAX runs out at the end of March....would you suggest to renew it for the next 6 months? And/or get the 2nd key back?
Any tips will be much appreciated.
PS I'm attaching a pic...I need to take some more maybe but I would like to clean it well first so the attached is just to get an idea
