It's a conundrum for sure tigertownI wager with the alloys being at least 300-500 quid leather at 200-300 quid let alone the rest. someone got a bargain. And a headgasketvif you know what your doing is 300-500 quid?? 1k is a bargain.
Oh totally, i'm the same, i hate spanners and i hate proper work so fixing cars is well off my agenda. And breaking cars is not as easy as i can sound either. But i mean from new buyers perspective if they have the time and inclanation, this is a good buy even at 1.5k maybe even 2k for the bits alone. Sadly if running ones can be had for couple of bags of sand, then non runners have to be priced accordingly.It's a conundrum for sure tigertown
Headgasket if you/your mate knows what you're doing will be cheap and fairly easy. Unfortunately not having the tools, skill nor mates I'd be left taking it to a garage where I've been quoted £1000-2000.
Glasses Guide is quoting £500 - 700 trade in value.
It gets to a point where some GTV's are uneconomically viable for non-mechanics; figured I could bag a grand and spend what I would have spent fixing the head gasket on another GTV. Thou still considering just keeping it as spares for my next GTV!
Higher offers welcomed...
Yeh, i know!! Didn't get a chance to change my mind, although the money's not in my hand just yet...somehow my planned replacement, a clapped out mondeo diesel seems crap, might keep a lookout for a dogwagon like tigertowns...That was quick!
£1150, double the book part-ex price! Then again it'll be for sale in 2012 for £4k+.... I may even end up buying it back!Did you get what you wanted for it?
Even with the work done to it youd struggle to get 2k for it in this market.The buyer must be planning on keeping it i reckon.£1150, double the book part-ex price! Then again it'll be for sale in 2012 for £4k+.... I may even end up buying it back!
ahhh don't tell me its rare!! If I ever get another GTV I'll want the same colour, grey/tan leather. Just ran out to check the paint code, but the stickers faded...I think itsIS that Meteor Grey? Don;t see them in that colour often
I'm sure he knows what he's doing, he's an independent london alfa dealer, I guess he'll have it all shipshape for a grand (including tyres and Q2) then sure it'd easily get snapped up by a city boy for £4kNice colour but the buyer is brave at £1150 if he thinks there is alot of profit in it. As a keeper it might make more sense.
