Seized engine - what's it worth?
« on: April 16, 2019, 07:30:47 AM »
Unfortunately my engines seized on my GTI, its been a fun 5 years but now she can rest easy
I have no idea how much the car is worth but here are the specs:

- GTI MK5 Candy white, Cat D 130k miles, manual
- Recent new clutch, rear control arms + springs, rear caliper
- Rust on wheel arch + under boot badge
- Tartan interior, electric folding mirrors, parking sensors, arm rest, halogen lights, R32/eddy rear lights

Taking off the BBS CH alloys its currently on, would it be worth buying a set of gti alloys or would I be better off putting some random cheap alloys on? 

I dont know what price to list her for, so any ideas?

wouldn't have a clue on how much it'll be worth tbh.. being cat D too - probs not a lot. If you have the time and effort.. maybe break it for parts, you may get more back.
