    Default Help/advice needed

    Hi - I'm after some advice on a price I should put on my car.

    Unfortunately due to me falling ill I need to sell the car to raise funds to pay for my wife to take driving lessons and get a small car for her to drive as I am reducing my driving significantly.

    I've got a Blue (pearlescent type colour Blue) 2004 (July) Vec Sri 2.0 Turbo with the 2013 4 CD changer and Sat nav.

    The cars just passed 40k miles and has a full service history with all the pads and discs replaced within the last 3k miles. MOT is due in July.

    Bad points on it are:

    The back bumper has an approx 2.5inch scratch that has taken the paint off to the white of the bumper.

    It has a low sounding grinding noise coming from the back when I brake at low speed - I've had the front and back discs and pads changed and a new wheel bearing in an attempt to fix this noise but I cant get rid of it and neither can Vx, Kwikfit or Nationwide Autos.

    Can anyone recommend what I should advertise the car at? I was thinking at about £5800 but wasn't sure if that would be too high (or low). Any help would be appreciated.

    Mark

    grinding noise is more than likely a binding brake... regardless of new pads or not... had the same thing, new pads made no diff, an hour in the garage to strip the caliper and it was sorted...

    have you checked the usual places, e.g. www.theaa.com for prices ?

    Thanks for the help guys - I'd love to keep the car but my health isn't the best and although I'm managing at the minute I think I'm going to have to reduce my hours at work.

    With less income the first luxary to go is the petrol guzzler in favour of a smaller diesel.

    Thanks again
