    i wouldnt mate - ill bet they would want at least a grand from you for the swap and you could buy that estate for about half the price privately.

    Nice car - I used to own that model,
    and going by parkers it's around the right sort of price for a dealer

    Cost New ('96) £ 15320
    Dealer Retail £ 2255
    Private Good £ 1535
    Private Poor £ 695
    Part Exchange £ 1005

    I traded my sport estate in 18 months ago and got £700 for it - so don't expect a straight swap.

    Finally for a sport estate it's the wrong colour, it should be.........

    Yeah, but your engine wasn't bolloxed, so I was glad to offload at any price really. Had been in good nick I have gone elsewhere. Luckily the guy never checked
