Looks about the right price compared to others for sale on ebay/autotrader ect. If I was hunting for a new daily at the mo, i would have been in touch already its worth pointing out that is has the 16v (150? BHP) engine in it (same as the 318is coupes) and prob put it up on some of the drift sites.
only real eay to find out if its over priced is a 99p start, no reserve. With all the pic's and details you've posted you should get a good price for it
I think its a bit high tbh I own 2 compacts one lower milage then that with a dent in the boot ows £300 and I got my red one with a imboliser fault for £175 both had mot and tax both off ebay I would give 6 for yours if I was looking for one ebay is the place tho there has been some on there that shock me what the bidding has gone up to have a look on compleated listings and get a idear they do pull more money now then last year
front bumper £50~75 back lights £30 wheels £100~£150 lock set ecu ews stuff £50~90 seats don't really sell unless lucky if the windows both work the mecs might sell as comon cheap compact fsult they don't lol
Thanks mate, windows are all good as I had to replace the drivers side lol. Theres exhaust, K&N, steering wheel, rear bumper, interior is mint with no holes so should fetch decent money, engine & gearbox, front & rear brakes then weigh the shell in.
But it has such a complete history with it that would be last resort.
Just adjusted the price on the advert to £850, was shocked to see someone asking £2700 for an identical one on ebay lol.
If I did break it, I'm tempted with sticking the engine in the hilux lol.

The trouble with eBay is it's mostly rubbish for prices. A car one day might make a grand and the next week only £600. Checking listings that have ended (as suggested above) is a great idea but don't forget anything in red type didnt find a buyer and a few of the green font ones are re-lists. Also the amount of private listings and schill bidding seems to be increasing at the moment.
Personally I'd suggest a reserve of about £560 and once it's met (if it's met) it should encourage further bidding if people think they can score a bargain.
if you put the inside up for sale i would leave it in the car untill its sold seen a few on there sell under £10 as people have made the mistake of removing it all then getting stuck with it shame your not close if you did brake it i would be intrested in some bits lol
the back wipper unit sells off them to sume times (why mine has a coke lid stuck to the boot)

I find agreeing a time that suits you both is best but explain that after a certain time you have to go out. I never wait in for people now if I have something on. If they say they'll be there for 6.00pm and I haven't heard from or seen them by say 6.30pm I just go and do whatever it was I was going to do anyhow. If they haven't the manners to contact you it's their loss.
