    Can anyone give me an idea what my car is really worth?

    Hi there, i am looking to sell my astra to get something a bit bigger and am not really sure what to sell it for £ wise.

    Its a 51 reg '01 5dr 1.8 sxi. It is a 2002 MY car.

    It has the sports seats with the pull out thigh support which seemed to change on later ones. It has the grey seats rather than the older black and red pattern. It has PAS air con etc. Drive by wire and factory fit cruise control, disks all round etc.

    What do you guys and girls think it is really worth privately. It has an irmscher grill and a Cat 1 aftermarket alarm.

    If you can give me an idea that would be great, and i'll consider changing its value on auto trader if it will help sell it.

    mileage will play a factor in the price as well - have a look on www.parkers.co.uk

    Oops i forgot that. Its done just over 36,000.

    Parkers say private good £5,160 as standard, no grill or alarm, i dont expect the grill to change the price but you'd of though a £600 alarm would add £50 or something to the price.

    I have it up for £5,250 and there are people with them up for more in the area. I would expect people to try and knock some money off the price and was after perhaps £5,000 but at this rate i'll end up with it advertised for £4,750 and sell at £4,500 . I might change the price friday lunch time after the next edition of auto trader has been out for a day or so.

    Just got to see if i can get insured on a soarer for the next 6 months before im 25.

    have a look at dealer prices and then subtract £500 or so. Parkers can be quite inaccurate.

    Sometimes it makes more sense to take things like the grill and alarm off of the car before you sell it, and sell the items seperatley, as these dont really contribute to the cars value.

    I think it would cost more getting the clifford taken out than it would be worth.

    My old grill with the chrome V has been in the garage since the car was new and has gone a bit funny. It might clean up ok though .

    I think i just want to sell the car now as i have decided on its replacement i think.
