    Zaf GSI - 9k in 08, 4.5k in 09!

    Was expectin it really. Dealer offered me 4500 for the Zaf! 04 plate 51k mileage. Bought in Jan 08 for 9k! I was only enquring but it did shock me. I'd prob get over 5k if i pushed. Went looking for a VXR, but my arm has been twisted towards the SRI with Exterior Pack, or the Elite! Both 150hp models but Elite is well, more Elite! LOL, better interior!

    I never have luck with Cars! Always sell at a mega loss!

    If you sell it privately you should get more, about 6-6.5K I would expect looking at what others are selling for at the moment. I spoke to a couple of dealers a couple of weeks ago and second hand car prices dropped a lot a while back, but are starting to go back up a bit because a lot of people are holding onto them.

    Also now the VXR Zafs will be coming down in price, its inevitable that the GSi will take a more sudden drop.

    Its a mainstream car from a mainstream manufacturer so depreciation is going to be huge, especially given the 'current economic climate'.

    I wouldn't be surprised if I end up running mine into the ground.

    The problem with both the Zafira And Astra GSi;s were that they were holding their value too high for too long & because VXR;s have taken a fair hit in the last year or so they have now came into the price bracket that the GSi;s were occupying so a fairly high tumble in values was inevitable.
    However when it comes to GSi;s Id always say to sell them privately. The right car shouldnt be too hard to sell if priced correctly.
