to sell or trade ?

G'day all,

Please excuse me if this post is in the wrong spot, I haven't been here for a while.

I have to update my xr8 as I have for the last 3 years only my contact at the dealer where I change them each year has left and they seem to be screwing me on trade in price.
I usually have neither the time or the patience to sell privately but this time I am thinking otherwise so my question is what do you think it's worth?

220kw au
Venom red
18" chrome wheels (yeah I know, a bit ricey but I like shinny stuff)
near new tyres
just re registered
3" cat back exhaust into 2 X 2 1/4 outlet
Full dealer service history.
this car is in excellent condition but has high K's @ 75000
The distance this car has done is as with all my cars the reason for the 12 month changeovers. But as I live in the southern highlands NSW and work between my Sydney and Canberra offices does not reflect the true condition of the car.
I can attach a picture if it helps but I don't think the pub is the right spot.

Any input would be appreciated

thanks
Ed

Re: to sell or trade ?

How patient are you?

Trading the car in is the fast and easiest way to dispose of the car.
Selling privately, generally will get you better dollars, but may take a lot longer.....

Stick it in the AU For Sale Section. Pics are also warmly appreciated. Have you sussed out the red book values??

Re: to sell or trade ?

Redbook values are as follows:

2002 FORD FALCON
AU III Sedan XR8 4dr Man 5sp 5.0i
average kms 18,000 - 22,000
trade in price guide* $30,000 - $33,700
national average price - private sale* $33,000 - $37,600
(Add $500 for auto)

Based on your Kms being 3 times the average, I would say you could expect around the $30k - $31k mark.
