    Default Buy your car

    Just put the wifes Fiesta through that 'we buy your car' web site. I want £3500 for it (which is a pretty good price for a new shape Fiesta). Well blow me down if they didn't offer £3495.

    I tried to describe it accurately, but what's the betting they find numerous reasons to drop the price when they 'inspect' it. I did it when I was selling the Vectra and they upped the price a few times (although they still offered a silly price). I'm putting it in Autotrader next week, so I'll wait and see.

    Nope. They just come up with a valuation. I just have a feeling they'd look at every mark and scratch another £100 off each time

    Slightly OT but my bro-in-law was offered £4500 for his 53 plate Type R Civic (83k on the clock) last week against an F1 Motorsport Megane which is retailing near the 20 grand mark (special edition mica gold paint and decals a £1200 option!!)
    I thought that was ****, must be worth at least £7000.

    Don't know which exact site it is you guys were using, but I did a Google search based on what Paul said and got www.wewillbuyyourcar.com and entered all my details, saying it has no visible defects, and got my valuation.

    Signum 2.0T ELite

    I haven't laughed so much for a while. They said they'd buy it off me instantly for.........

    I'm sure they would D.

    I somehow don't think you'd be quite as quick to sell it though!

    Just did the other site that came up as a possibility given Paul's original post - www.webuyanycar.com

    They came up with a better valuation I must say.....









    £1,460


    They're all having a giraffe!!!

    Who the would sell that car for that price? They must think we're all on drugs - either that or they all are!!
