Alfa Sale Help

Hi All,

I am new to this site and I am looking for some advice. I have owned my beloved blackline for 15 months now and having found out im expecting twins recently I now need to sell it to buy a new family car.........devestated is not the word.

In the last year I have spent over a 1000 on it ensuring that the car is lovingly maintained. However, now I am to sell it I am not sure what price I should be advertising it for. One garage offered me a part x for 4500........I nearly slapped him for both me and the car

I have seen these cars advertised for prices ranging from 5500 - 8k so thats a little confusing as well.

Can someone help me out?

Its a Blackline, 57 plate, 53000, full service history & fab condition I have had the following work carried out on it:
4 brand new tyres (Jan 2014)
Cambelt Changed at 39k (By Alfa)
New Clutch (Jan 2014)
Bulbs replaced in all lights(Jan 2014)

All replies are greatly appriciated.

Not a good time of year sadly to sell a car privately and by the looks of things you've just spend a small fortune on it could advertise it in the classified section in here , potential buyers will appreciate costs involved , sound like a very nice car , I'm thinking 5900 if it's petrol , 6500 at a push if it's diesel but make sure the recent spend is highlighted.
