    Make sure he has insurance if you let them take a spin in it. Have a price you want and stick to it, don't bow to pressure

    Sold the Astra with little work involved.

    Just open up the bonnet and boot and let them look round and tell them to ask any questions they have.

    Oh, and point out all the mods you`ve done.

    Good luck.

    just keep it cool, dont make any bad points clear, make sure you say the good points, the usual. Start off with price higher than what you are wanting so got more to work with.

    Currently have an Impreza WRX STI in secure storage as I cannot get it on my drive or over the curb into the place where I work.

    Didn`t sell on ebay but have just had some more offers by email.

    I`m seriously thinking about buying a standard impreza as I really enjoyed driving the one I have. If not a Seat Cupra /Cupra is on the cards.

    Thanks anyway Danny.

    The S60 is a really nice car. Same with the S40, infact most modern volvos are sexy. Is it wrong for me to think that?

    Owh and tips on selling.

    Give it a was, but make sure its not wet still when he comes around. Give it a good polishing to hide any small scratches then take it for a quick blast so you get some dirt on it, this way it looks like your not deliberatly trying to hide any marks from him by washing it jus tbefore he gets there.

    Empty out the boot so they can see the boot space and remove any crap you have.
