    Arrow Poll: to sell or not to sell....the 888.

    Ok - so most of you know that I am moving to China in a couple of weeks.

    So far, I had thought that I wouldn't sell the 888, but as it's getting nearer (the '8 is due do go into long term storage next Sat) - I've started to think otherwise - what do you guys (& girls) think? sell or not sell?

    You know my answer to this and I think you'll be mad to sell...but understand your circumstances. She's a beautiful car

    As you know I have been having thoughts about getting rid of my 888 but what you have to do is look at, take a moment and honestly ask yourself.....Can I let her go?

    i suppose it depends on how long you are going for, if its over 2 years you might aswell get rid depending on how much you can get for it, as it might not be worth getting rid given what you've spent on it and how long you had the car after doing the mods.

    what about shipping to china its only a matter of hundreds to import a car have you considered this?

    Driving in China? Are you mad? lol.

    Three Options...

    1) Sell it now - One of, if not, the most modified and powerful '8 out there. Good selling point you have, so youll get a good price

    2) Keep it for when you get home. Then use it, finish moding it and whatev then.

    3) Store it, then sell it when your home. Not only the most modded and powerful T8 on UK roads, but also the one with the lowest miles on the clock, or so you would imagine after not being driven for 2 years. So it will be worth more than all the other T8s in 2 years.

    Depends how much storage will cost though.

    First of all that is one nice looking speed machine!! If you don't need to sell it then keep it, It would be better to have it then come back and decide to sell it in the future, than to sell it too soon and regret not keeping it.
