Re: 2005 GT Diesel for parts or repair in Donegal

sorry to hear about the car, but at least you got sorted with a replacement.

Might be better off selling it off in sections rather than all in one piece which is a bit of a nightmare.

I'm sure some of the guys here with non leather GT's would be interested in the seats....a few pics would be helpful especially of the wheels

Re: 2005 GT Diesel for parts or repair in Donegal

in order to calculate VRT is it a 2, 3 or 4 door.

Is it Saloon, liftback, hatch back?

www.ros.ie sucks

Also what mileage?

Re: 2005 GT Diesel for parts or repair in Donegal

In regards to the VRT on this, it could be worth trying to pay this before repairing it, as VRT is calculated on the market value of the car, and obvoiusly a written off car must be worth a fair bit less than market value.
Wasnt there a thread on here a while ago about a guy who brought a GT in from the UK and proved that the market value was wrong and saved himself a few bob?

Re: 2005 GT Diesel for parts or repair in Donegal

to be honest, this car is only worth selling off as spare parts....what category has it been written off as?

Is the car actually yours? The skeptic in me has shown its head...hmmm????

Alfa GT

Re: 2005 GT Diesel for parts or repair in Donegal

To calculate the vrt use these values
Make:Alfa romeo
Model:GT
Fuel: Diesel
Body Type:Sports Coupe - Non convertable
No. of doors: 2
Milage:92000
Choose the 1.9JTD M-Jet 16V(Standard diesel engine fo GT)

The car belongs to me. It is registered to me at my address in UK. Was insured in Ireland at my Irish address. The insurance decided to write the car off as they deemed the estimate to high to fix. I then purchased the car back off the insurance with the intentions of fixing it. On my search for parts I came across a newer GT at a good price. Coupling that with the fact that the vrt's opinion of the open market selling price had been severly reduced since January therefore bringing down the actual re-registering price, I decided to but the '06.
The insurance got three opinions of what caused the fire which was agreed to be a loose diesel return pipe. This was fortunate for me because if it had have been an electrical fault, they would not have paid out and I would have to take it up with alfa.
I would probably get more for this car if I sold the interior, rims and spares seperately but I had to save long and hard to afford this car and can appreciate that someone out there might want one as much as i did, and this could be thier opportunity to have that GT.

Re: 2005 GT Diesel for parts or repair in Donegal

The garage which was going to carry out the repairs reckoned it would cost about 900 stg for a brand new loom and about €250 per injector. Then you have to price any hoses and the labour. There's a breaker in UK. I think they're call Mitchell Dismantlers or similar, who specialise in Alfas. Maybe some parts from another model which is also a 1.9JTD 16V (150) like a 156 sportwagon might be suitable?

It's amazing how quickly things change in rip off Ireland. In November the VRT website quoted the open market selling price of that car to be €21,500 or there abouts, and the cost of VRT to be €5,500. Thank god I didn't clear it. My girlfriend's ****ed because she cleared her hyundai coupe in Feb for €3500 and now its down to €2600! I shouldn't whinge, its a wonder it didn't go up instead.

Re: 2005 GT Diesel for parts or repair in Donegal

Going to be tough to sell as a whole I gotta agree, hope the best for ya as it would be easier instead of dismantling, but you'd make more cash for sure i reckon by selling in parts. Not nice though I know seeing a car you liked getting stripped down! A dangerous thing getting attached to a car!! On the matter of VRT, i doubt the open market selling price of a cat D written off not running car is over 10k. I reckon a phone call to them would get an estimate. It's still an expensive gamble I reckon, unless you have a lot of time to go to breakers the whole time ( I definitely dont). Would still like one part (well i suppose they are 4 parts! )

I'll be in Donegal this weekend and would be interested in the wheels (and possibly other bits and pieces) if you are interested in selling them separately.

Na Pat, my new GT came today so I'm broke. Also my other half is at the end of her tether as far as me and alfa are concerned so I don't think she'd approve!
