    Default approx 4000

    right guys, young lad at work had his car pinched and totalled, it was his pride and joy, (even if it was a rover coupe), but long shot is he is hoping to get about 3-4k from his insurance, and he says he fancies a veccy, a 1.9cdti, hopefully sri. i think he is setting his sights too high but anyone tell me what sort of year, condition, mileage he could get for his dough?
    many cheers,

    is this rover coupe gold plated ? even the newest one would not make that kind of money ! but if he did get that kind of money he should be able to pick a deisel but i would think it would have high miles and probably not a cdti !

    I think he might be just a bit short there. He might be able to pick up a special edition one for very little. (not mine)

    Thinking about it, he wouldn't be able to get anything from the stealers that cheap. They wouldn't keep anything with that low a value. He would have to look for a damaged one at the auctions or a brakers.

    i thought about telling him to go independant or even the free papers, the only reason he hopes to get that amount of cash is he declared every mod known to man, i think his premium was more than the car was worth

    personally, i think he has more chance of getting a b, and he may even have a choice of models for that price

    Network Q have 2.2 DTI pre-facelifts for under £6K so he could definatly get a DTI privately for £4k.

    As above, auctions
    That's the only realistic way of getting one dirt cheap, because good pre-facelift cars at dealers are still 7 grand and above as far as I know.
    Take someone who knows about cars along to auction and you could grab a great one for a steal
    Can be risky though.
    edit: oops, didn't know the 2.2's were that cheap now.... hmmm....
