    My folks are selling their X reg 1.8S :(

    Now how much do you reckon they should put it up for, 54k miles, only done around 1500 in the last 2 years though, always serviced etc?

    They've already put it in the trader and wonderig if they chose a decent enough price :)

    Paid 9k for it just over 2 years ago :(

    I'd say about £7-8000. Hard to judge with summer coming up. Depends whether they want a quick sale or sell it for the most possible.

    It's up for the lower end of that scale, although I reckon with the right weather 7k would be achievable, maybe :) But they have it up for less than 7k.

    Also want a quick-ish sale, they've never really cared for drawing thigns out for a long time (houses, cars etc), they prefer the solution that offers the least hassle without getting ripped off! Not selling it for months for the sake of a hundred or two is not something they'd do.

    Ta!

    The only thing it really has against it is the fact that it's not an iS or special edition. I think I've found it on autotrader and at that price it should go pretty quick, it's a decent enough colour too, not Bronze or Red etc.

    sorry forgot to say it's an iS, i.e. the one with the lsd etc :) (although I've posted on another forum as they don't actually know all the extras/differences the S had!)

    Does autotrader say it's an iS?

    Shame I've just got something, would have been interested myself :o

    Always wondered what canvassers were? Do they come round and cover cars for sale in canvas?
