    Default Sell or part ex? Question!

    Hi guys

    I bought my July 03 Vectra GSI in September - it had 19000 on the clock, and i paid £9200 for it. Probably not adding value i know, it has 18" Irmscher Signa's, irmy grille, door trim etc.

    Well me and the wife are having a baby in late summer, and i really need to save some pennies - so i'm gonna be getting something slower and less expensive in the first place. I need some advice however - should I try and part ex somewhere (if i do this i need some money back - at least a couple of grand), or go for a private sale? I'm in no mad rush to sell and don't want to see her go so i won't be making any rash decisions, but would like some ideas as to how to proceed.

    Thanks for any help guys - pics below

    Nice car m8. i would go for the private sale with the extras on as you have the time. If you were to px, the value falls significantly. Congrats on the baby.


    Dealer £8,255 Private £7,405 Part Ex £7,105 Cost New £21,900

    Thanks for the advice - but do dealers generally give money back

    For example, if I buy a 5k car and part ex mine, will they be willing to give 2k back (according to those figures). Sorry for my naivety - i've only ever part ex'd 'up' if you know what i mean.

    Thanks for the congrats by the way guys, we're chuffed

    Private, it's the only way mate, dealer will offer about 7k if you're lucky and buying from him, can't advise on a price cos it's a car that will only sell to someone who really wants one due to the cost of gas.

    Might wanna try auctioning it, and hope that someone in the crowd really wants one.
