Selling my 58 reg Pirelli manual - value?
« on: August 13, 2017, 11:13:48 AM »
I have decided to go down the lease route again, my last lease was an R, this time I have gone for a GTD (digital dash etc) and it is arriving on Wednesday.

So, I have decided that the Pirelli has to go  :sad1:

It is a lovely silver 3 door, manual, 58K, new MOT, new Pirelli tyres, correctly refurbished silver wheels, cam follower, DV+, R32 brakes and discs all round (refurbished in yellow by Bigg Red), full VW dealer service history, both front wings and driver sill treated and re-painted by VW under warranty with a perfect paint match, so no worries there  :smiley:

I intend to advertise it on this site and probably Autotrader, but don't know what it is worth??

I paid £9.5K around 9 months ago and have spent quite a bit making it look nice, but don't know what it is likely to sell for, please help??

Sounds like a great car- as it's a Pirelli, you can probably hold out for the price you'd like, but it may take a while!

I've noticed the prices for ED30's have reduced massively in recent months. I paid £12,495 for mine in 2012 on 47k from a main dealer - I see cars are now going for about £6k for 120k examples.
Given the low mileage of yours, and the rarity - you might be able to get back what you paid?

I'd say don't tell people what you paid for it and put it up for the same price as it's a rare motor GLWTS

Thanks for the advice guys, I'll put her on at £9995 ovno and hope to get back what I paid.

I will of course have still lost money because of what I have spent, but think that this is always the case anyway!

I've spent near enough £7500 on a basic gti so not going to even get as near as the 7k I paid for it that's £14,000 total :doh:

84k Miles now on cat d due to the bump I had last year.

Good luck  :happy2:
