Might have to sell my 159!!!

Relocation for work might mean I have to sell my much loved 159.
Will have to put the other car into storage and doubt I will be able to afford to do the same for the alfa.
The car is a 2008 2.4 jtdm 159 saloon in Stromboli grey with beige leather and kenwood satnav/iPod/hands free etc. 92k on clock with cam belt done 1000 miles ago and10 months MOT.
It's had new injectors, welded swirl flaps, alfa tune remap, egr delete, custom exhaust, eibach springs, permformance friction brake pads, Brera alloys, glow plugs, glow plug relay, maf sensor, clutch, fly wheel, slave cylinder, uprated larger FMIC and performance air filter all in last 3 years. All in all a smart example that runs beautifully, pulls like a train with no smoke on startup or when driving. Full service history etc etc.
So million dollar question: what's it worth?? Have seen similar modified motors asking between 6 and 8 grand in the past however I'm thinking around 5 might be more realistic?
Interested in your thoughts and opinions?
Cheers

I'd be pretty surprised (unfortunately as mine is identical) if it was even worth 5k. I'd say between 4-5k.

Mines a similar spec but a year older. Paid closer to 3k.

This is the only car that I have had that doesn't seem to have any logical pattern to resale. Cars that are similar mileages and years are vastly different in advertised price and it doesn't even seem to be area related. I suppose you never know if the expensive ones actually sell and if they do it may not be anywhere near the asking price.
Suppose it boils down to how desperate you are to sell and what you can afford to let it go for.
Thanks for all your responses.

Brera

For me, those Brera alloys look much better on your 159 than on any Brera I've seen. In fact, I really like the paint, interior and wheel combination. Hope it sells easily.
