PostSubject: Advice on car    Mon 27 Jul - 20:17

Basically weighing things up I think it might be time to sell the car and run something a bit cheaper. With doing more miles now and wanting to get a house next year I'm looking to put my money towards that. Something I dont really want to do it but probably the best thing to do as realistically at 23 having both probably isnt going to happen. Looking around im struggling to come up with a price to put the car up for they seem all over the place. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas or suggestions what might be realistic. Most people will know the car its jonny gavs hawkeye the car is a real credit to him all I've done is carry on looking after it like he has changed the wheels and the spoiler. Heres the spec

the market is all over the shop at the minute fella. If you advertise it for what you paid for it I would imagine it would sell straight away!!

Yeah cheers looking on eBay a 50k mileage standard ones are up for 6.5k. I'd rather it be sold through here so the car is going to get looked after. Just working it out what I'm looking at I'll be saving £30 a week on fuel

Chris

As already said by Maca and yourself, prices are all over the shop at the minute. Problem with selling on here is that exposure will be very limited, as the forum is pretty dead these days. What I would advise you to do is to get a really good advert written up using the specs above with plenty of pics and a detailed list of the service history and at what miles and then bang it on Scoobynet for £8000-8500 and see what happens. That car was pampered to bits and the only thing that is a negative for a potential buyer is that it still has the standard rods and the 5 speed box, so not fully forged and at the maximum limits of the gearbox. So any potential buyer would have to be happy with the power it has and the 5 speed.

Other than that it is a bullet proof engine build and a hell of a comfortable, powerful, very low mileage, daily driver for someone. It also is a gorgeous looking vehicle and we all know on here how much was invested in it.

What sort of price would you be happy with getting out of it. Whatever that number is then aim a bit higher as it can only come down from there and take a sensible offer on it. I am happy to help you write an ad for it. Just to show you the type of ad I am talking about here is the one I did when I sold my car and it sold in the first 24 hours it was listed to the first person to view.

Cheers for the advice Mario. Pretty much what I was looking to hear. Like from your advert I want to make sure the car gets sold to the right person not just to end up abused as since the day Jonny bought it it's been pampered since. I'm not going to rush and let it go just to put it up and wait for the right buyer to come along and if that doesn't happen I'll not be disappointed, just with wanting to sort a house in the next year focus needs to go on that plus the car isn't getting enjoyed as it should more just from A to B at the moment. But definetly be back in an Impreza when the time comes again.

No problem mate - when you have a car like that you end up thinking of it like that - is this new person the righ owner for my car lol!!! I almost told the person who bought my car that I wasn't going to sell it in the end. It was such a hard thing to do. But you are just ayoung lad and it's nice to see you have your head screwed on and have got your priorities right. Get yourself sorted with a house first and there is plenty of time for Subarus later. Wish I was as sensible at 23....I was feckin' mental at your age and my only worry was living for the day I woke up to!

Good luck with whatever you do mate and if you need any help at all with the advert, etc then let me know. If you aren't a member of Scoobynet then I am happy to put it up for sale on there for you too as I am a full member.

Lucky!
