    As much as somebody is prepared to pay for it! That's a serious reply BTW, not being funny.

    I guess all you can do is find the value of it if it was standard (from the Vx site, Parkers etc.) and then add a bit for all the mods. As you probably appreciate, you'll never get back anywhere near what you've paid out for the mods.

    It's always tricky selling a heavily modded car as Joe Public won't appreciate it and be willing to pay the extra, and an enthusiast may want something to work on themselves, rather than have a car all done with nothing (or not much) else to do to it - youmay be lucky though and find somebody who wants a car ready finished.

    Which makes me think to replace it back to a standard car and sell of all the parts first.... but that may take a while...

    Sorry to bear bad news Steve, but all that yummy kit has about the same value as a Magic Tree in the dealers eyes when it comes to PX time, privately I'd hazzard a guess at somewhere around 10k.

    Once again I'm sorry, but you did ask.

    Guys, like I say, I'm prepared for heavy losses. Seriously its not a problem, so dont feel sorry I've never viewed this car as an investment.

    I'm just trying to get a 'realistic' value on the car..... either as a whole, or in sperate bits !!

    If I could recover half the value back by selling off the parts.... and the car might be worth £8k on its own... that would be £12k

    Or... sell it to VV for £10k ??

    Well I'd say all you can do is get a figure for what it's worth as standard, add a proportion of what you paid for the mods and see if it sells.

    If not, then back to standard, or almost standard, and price it accordingly - or p/x it. Then sell the bits separately at a suitable price.

    Can't really band figures around as I don't know what your car is worth as standard (I haven't looked at the Vx site)
