    Part Ex doesn't give you what a car is worth mate, that's the point of it. It provides you with an easy way out of getting rid of your old car and leaving the hassle of selling it or moving it on with the garage you've bought your new one from. If they gave you the market value they'd never make any money, and at the end of the day that's what the car business is all about - money.

    If you want 9 grand for your car then sell it privately as the valuation sites will never gie you what they offer online for it...

    You shouldn't buy cars with the idea of selling them again any time soon - mine's paid off this month after buying it september and I accept that if I sold it any time soon I'd lose several grand at the very least...

    Quite a few more years of motoring ahead in my V6...

    I have to agree that I wouldn't have paid 12 grand for a Vectra after seeing the Insignia - my 07 Signum 3.0 Elite with every optional extra and the Irmscher kit was 7500 but it's the only one of it's kind that I've ever seen so I was happy to pay for it. A bog standard Vectra SRi is worth peanuts in the current market though...
