Got this www.pistonheads.com/sales/3823486.htm for sale on PH, Here, Gumtree all for £1095 plus on ebay with £1000 reserve and £1095 BIN. Ebay is up to £720 and I have turned down an offer of £800. Was I daft?
looking at it objectively, it needs a seat (which sell for very strong money, easily £100 for a good replacement for a mk2), plus 4-500 quid of bodywork to make it look presentable again, in a colour thats going to be an absolute curse word to match well. its not bringing much to the table in terms of 'goodies' either. mx5s are a competitive market, theres just so many to choose from, and most have expensive aftermarket parts that add value to a customer, but yours is largely stock.
id have been very happy with the 800 quid tbh, id value it at 600-700.
Have you got it up on NX5 NUTZ or the owners club? The fact ist the lower powered 1.6 and a UK car is a + and a -, its a cheaper insurance (so better for younger drivers) but isn't a good to drive as the earlier 1.6's. I would also lose the comment about how it was dented, that makes it sound like you've been trashing round sideways everywere and that there could be more damage underneath
Cheers for the advice guys, may have another look at the price. I get what you mean about the dent comment but it was a simple lack of concentration when reversing at work ( the missus wasnt happy what with it being her car)
