In the event the decision get's overturned to give the car back, how much would you say a 57 plate 159 Lusso with 46K on the clock is worth?

Bearing in mind most of the issues have now been resolved (May I say at my own cost), it still has trouble starting (unless you put your foot on the throttle to warm it a bit) due to wiring back to glow plug relay. But in all fairness shouldn't be overly drastic to fix.

Previous work done:

Injectors
Glow Plugs
Relay
MAF Sensor
MAP Sensor
EGR
CV Joints
Steering Fluids
Rear brake assembly

I know it needs a small amount of work so factoring in for that, but quotes so far have varied so wildly it's silly.

So far from what I got, trade in has been around 4.5K to 5.5K..

Mainly due to the mileage.. So based on that, it wouldn't be too bad to trade it in.

By the way I forgot to mention it's a 2.4 JTDM lusso spec.
Take care, you may find you could trade in for 5K against a car you've got down to 15K. But that you could pay 14K for outright. Dealers often have inflated trade-in values like this.

So here is the deal, 4.8K for my car on a 2010 plate hot hatch costing 13.5K with 11,000 miles on the clock. Equating to 200 a month over 36 Months..

In all fairness I'll probably settle it after the first year. But, that's the offer.

Misses needs a new car and I'm getting rid of my 159 anyway..

Just make sure you're not getting ripped on this hatch's "price". Browsing earlier today I was surprised how many more 159s are up for sale privately recently, and how much the price has gone down this year.
