we are part ex'ing the golf for the new car and I am wondering what dealers expect?
Obviously it will be clean inside and out, with all the history.
I am concerned about the condition of the car though, as it was modified I have taken the wheels off, spoiler off and rear lights off. Whats left is the badgeless grill (can not take this off due to the bonnet mod), colour coded parts, springs and shocks (no point taking them off) and the wiring is all in for the amps etc (but now hidden).
The problem I have is there are some bad chips in the paint work, the front and rear valances look very tired. However the car is a V reg and has covered 101k miles, so where do you draw the line in tidying it up? There are no dents in the car at all, and it looks good for its age IMHO. I am considering putting standard black valances on it though to make it look a bit tidier.....or as its only going to go to auction is it worth the money and the time?
any thoughts would be great
