Hi guys, just wondering how much my car would be roughly worth? Its a 96 bubble shape 3 door 214si 16v it has just below 95k on the clock, had cam belts done about 20k ago. Engine is spot on. Never fails to start runs brilliantly.
Only problem is




Been quoted 500 to fix. But still runs perfect and drives spot on. No problem to back wheel or back anything. Door opens and closes as it should.

Oh and its MOT'd until feb 07

Cheers

depends what its worth to you as a runner ? if its rust free id be inclined to go for it as if its got 4 or 6 years left in it thats gonna be worth it

I personally think its next to worthless, no one is going to want to take it on with what is, quite obvious and very expensive to correct damage.
If you want any sort of return on it its going to need to become parts.
Sorry mate.

Were you only 3rd party? you would get a good deal back off your insurer possibly.

Yeah only third party mate. Would have probably cost as much as the repair in the insurance hike after a claim anyway!

But been through the insurance thing on here once before! :D

Assuming it costs 500 to fix would it be worth 800 after its repaired? Anyone?

Cheers

was going to say no chance but if its got good service history and good condition you just may get close to this figure....

you would get maybe £100 for the alloys.

found this on ebay, bear in mind if your car is properly fixed you may get the full £800 on autotrader

i know the above is £220 less but no alloys and its ebay
Darn it, probably would have bought that had i seen it! Ah well. The service history on mine isn't all that and not all the panels are perfect. Only thing its got going for it are the alloys and ZR seats.

But would probably move these to another car if i got one, assuming its a rover!

I was watching that too out of interest and that car went for a ridiculous price. In fact it annoyed me a fair bit, to think not long ago that car would have fetched well in excess of a grande.

It's worth bugger all. Run it until it won't move then split for parts as others have said.

If it was lower mileage then I would have said get it fixed.
