    Default What could you hope to get a late VXR for?

    Guys,

    Anybody got a clue what is the expected price you could get a late VXR for? I see that the ones on autotrader vary massively and you could still reasonably expect it to be only worth about £5k in 2-3 years time, losing maybe £10k in that time .

    How much 'fat' do you recon is in the sticker price of, say, the Network Q 57/08 platers?

    I appreciate that the benefit of getting a much newer model (as opposed to the other option of an 05 GSi) is that it can be warrantied to the remainder of 5 years so avoiding some nasty potential bills.

    Cheers.

    Most dealers work on a £1500 - £2000 gross profit margin from the original buy price to the sticker price. But they have certian costs to come out of the gross margin. All cars regardless of age have to have the NQ 114 check and warranty.

    Sounds daft, but although a car under 3 years old /60000 miles still has the manufactures warranty on it, policy dictates that a Network Q car has to have a Network Q warranty. My Signum has both.

    They say on average a car has about £400 costs associated with it to be added onto the buy price. So if you base a dealers net prift being between £1100 to £1600 you won't be far wrong.

    However, if a dealer is stuck with a car for a while, it is not uncommon for them to seel at a loss to move it on.
