    The best advice I've ever had about car pricing was from an insurance assessor, following a write-off.

    #1 Goto one of the car sales websites (Autotrader or eBay, rather than gumtree)

    #2 Punch in the details for YOUR CAR (Make/age/mileage/engine size/fuel type/number of doors - ALL the important stuff - ignore colour !)

    #3 Create a list of the cars you find. IF you can't find enough, adjust the mileage UP by a minimum of 10K miles & if there's a selection facility for a lower mileage, use that & go -10K miles too.

    #4 Once you have a list of AT LEAST x10 cars, KNOCK off the HIGHEST & LOWEST values, then add all the rest together, then divide the total by by the number of cars used (so if u got x10 & ditched the highest & lowest, it's x

    THAT maths will give you an AVERAGE price for your car.

    You have to remember that a car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it & just because you spend 3k on a super paint job, 2k on super-super wheels n tyres & 1.5k on audio upgrades, a 10 year old golf is a 10 year old golf & the money you've spent will not make the car worth the total sum of the price of the parts...
