    Default Putting my 3.2 Elite up for Sale. Will I get £8,000?

    I've just spent the last day and a half cleaning and polishing my car so I can take some nice photos and get it up for sale as we are emigrating.

    I would really like to get £8k for it but I'm not sure if this is realistic.

    It is a 2003 3.2V6 Elite saloon with 27,700 on the clock and full dealer service history. Comes with the usual Elite spec plus the following:

    5 month old 18" Toora T970's with 225/40/18 with about 7mm tread.
    Fully colour coded skirts, front & rear valance.
    Irmscher boot spoiler
    Irmscher pedals
    Irmscher door pins
    Smoked front & rear lights from a Gsi
    Very subtle window tints
    Luxury floor mats (same beige colour as seats etc)

    Photos:

    She is in really nice condition but there are a few very minor stone chips to the front but nothing OTT.

    So, will I get £8k for it or do i need to go lower?

    Also, what are your opinions on the best place to advertise. Was going to go down the Ebay route due the amount of info you can provide in your ad but don't know if this is better than auto-trader.

    Any opinions greatly appreciated.

    JKA.

    If it`s any guage in price I got 6.5k for my vec as a trade in a month ago, 2.2 SRi so i reckon you would get 8 for yours privately, it`s just a case of finding someone who hasn`t got a trade in and is looking for a luxury car ...It`s a beauty so advertise somewhere with a photo in the ad ...

    Vehicle : Saab 95

    Trim : Vector Sport

    Engine : 1.9 TiD

    Year : 2007

    Default

    It really is a fantastic looking car, i personally wouldn't let it go for less than 8k thats for sure I reckon it's quite rare as well, i've never seen many that colour on the road before, especially saloons with the V6 engine ! Plus, the mileage is low & it has a VERY high spec ! Its a pity i'm not looking for a new car
    When advertising privately, dont let folk know you are emigrating, as then they will know you NEED to sell it soon & only offer you silly money for it, & dont just put usual ELITE spec. (Us Vec/Sig buffs know the spec but others may not, try and list stuff it has !)

    Good luck with the sale matey

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'm sorry to be selling as I really do like it. Only thing I would do if I was keeping it would be to tighten the handling up but I'll leave that for the next owner to decide.

    We're not moving until next April so there is no huge rush to sell and I definatley wont be accepting any stupid offers.

    Think I'll try and sell through Ebay in the next couple of weeks and go for £8k reserve.

    If anyone here knows of anyone looking for one please let me know.

    Hi jka,

    That looks like a fantastic car and in an unusual colour too..........8k.........should do

    Can I ask have you had a look at the paint for swirls/ cobweb scratches?........it might be worth getting that sorted and then it truely will be "First to see will buy".........only a suggestion though

    You'll see what I mean in the pics: -

    From this



    To this



    And then there's the famous "reflection shots"





    And finally



    Bryan

    PS I did that and I'm in Dundee........woo hoo
