    Question What would you do ?

    I have a bit of a dilemma,im buying a new car next week (a 7 seater) and i dont know what to do with my Astra.

    The Astra is a MK3 1.4 auto 3door in good condition and has 6 months MOT ,Tax till the end of the month ...only mod is 15" alloy wheels.

    so my option are....

    1: my mate who is a scrap dealer in London will give me £220 cash for the car

    2: i could sell the car privately for roughly the same money maybe a little more ?

    The thing im wondering,is anyone gonna be interested in buying it it would be a shame to scrap it as its only done 82000 miles,i was also thinking that maybe someone might want it as a project car....stick a z20let in it

    so what would you do with it ???

    Firstly I wouldn't buy a 7 seater, i would get a big estate or a van with seat, but thats just me lol.

    As for your car if you think you could get more than why not stick it on ebay starting at £240 and if it sells it sells, if it doesn't you only loose the insertion fee and you can scrap it?

    I have to get a seater im afraid,as i have 4 kids and 2 grandchildren to run around lol

    yea i suppose ebay is another option but you just get so many time wasters on there and with the tax up at the end of the month it has to go before then cos i dont want to pay to tax it again just to sell it

    Hi Joe,

    For me it's a no brainer. In my opinion you have answered your own question in your last post.

    Sell it to your mate for £220. As you know the scrap dealer at least he knows you and what his buying. No more worrying about time wasters or the purchaser who, after buying it, comes knocking on your door demanding his money back etc etc.

    Good luck with your new purchase.

    I would go along with the above Joe,

    So much stress selling a car, and it seems a fair price,

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    LOCKO has the right idea. stick some steels on it if you can. and then chuck the alloys on here may be able to get an extra bit of cash.
    All is good then

    Thanks for your input guys

    i think i will go down the scrap it route ......Although i have the original steels sadly the wheels will have to be scrapped as well cos 1 wheel has a slight V in it due to a snow slidding curb incident which im quite gutted about cos the other 3 are in good nick
