    Modded cars do put a hell of a lot of people off - You reduce your potential target buyer massively with a modded car.
    Get the right person and they'll appreciate what you've done but it's a bit of a needle in a haystack.
    Could you "quieten" down the body mods a bit?
    Market is also quiet - I seriously struggled to move my Golf R32 on at a very low price and had to sell it (non p/x) to a dealer in the end.

    What car are you looking for next? You may have to resort t p/xing for a quick sale.

    not 2 badder price with the mods m8...Think things are just moving slow at the mo.
    Also its S reg and has done 82k will be putting alot of people off?

    Think whats the lowest you can go for it and maybe drop it a bit.

    Just a though: maybe think off selling bit off it and chaging it bk 2 standard?
    (Then sell it 4 a bit less and you'll make the extra on the parts sold)

    Matt - I'd demod it a bit and p/x it at a dealers.
    Anything over 80k miles is tricky to shift but it looks like it's in A1 nick.

    Just to depress you, I only got £2500 for my R reg (1997), 82k mile, VW Golf GTi 16V (unmodded)about a year and a half ago when I p/xed it for my R32.
    Ouch.
