    thinking of selling my car, but need a price!

    right people my car is a 54 reg coupe turbo. it has 18k miles on the clock, has been well looked aftered, inc the turbo etc.
    its time to sell up now as i dont really need a performance car for about a year. this is when i will be looking into getting Merc CL55 AMG.
    only problem is the car has been listed as category D. it has not had any body panels replaced, apart from the GSI front. The car is finished in Sardinia blue (from factory), which is a very rare colour (not seen another). Also it has half leather which is also rare.

    what would i realistically be looking for the car?
    Mods: 18" alloys with new avon tyres
    GSI front bumper
    Irmscher new style grille
    Irmscher mirrors caps (chrome)
    Irmscher armrest
    lexmaul rears
    stainless cone filter
    boost gauge

    pics are in my sig.

    Check out the likes of Parkers and WhatCar or AutoTrader for a price mate. As long as the repair is a quality job it shouldnt knock the price too much.
    Id return it to standard as best I could if I were you too. Itll put people off to see a modded car thats a CatD, give the impression its bin thrashed about...

    you could never tell the damage was there (had a new subframe). and the paint quality on the bumper is 100% factory standards.
    i was thinking of returning to standard, but i think nothing looks boyracerish at all, and i really wont make much of a return on bits.

    That is some change in car.

    I would say for your coupe £7K mainly because of the cat D thing.

    £7k ish sounds about right tbh, plenty of clean low mileage non CatD cars about for not much more.

    I remember watching som program on Sky with Vicki Butler Henderson and that Dominic somebody bloke where they got old Cat C/D write off's and did them up for some people - They did this to allegedly make a profit - If I remember right, they valued a car that had been Cat C/D written off at approximately 75% of the value of a non Cat C/D car. Hope that (sketchy) info helps
