Personally I don't really know but I do know that for a 2001 AUII xr6, with low km's, you get anywhere between 27000-29000 according to my mate at ford...Maybe you should see if you could get maybe 1 or 2 more grand?

The success of the BA has pushed demand for them right up, and consequently most dealers are being flooded with trade-ins. If you reckon trade-in values were bad before, then prepare yourself to be downright insulted by the current values.

Finding a good trade-in (especially in the Newcastle area), is like looking for supermodels at a hippy protest (unless your name is XLR8).

As far as I'm concerned, dealers can go and "have sexual relations" with themselves, when it comes to trading in.

I got offered 18k for mine...can you believe it? 99 AU XR8 with 200kw. See this link www4.tpg.com.au/users/weare for pics and you realise my dissapointment.

Anyway if you can get 24k take it!

I didn't take the offer. I sold it private for 25k, and the guy resold it for 27k 3 weeks later (and didn't have to pay change over)

Just goes to show how greedy the dealers are. When you pay close to 50k for a car from a company, and then 3 years later they only offer you 18k, it really makes you think twice about buying their product again.

Anyway, at saying that, I own an XR6T now, and plan to keep it for quite a few years.. hopefully the resale value will be better this time

i went to finialise my finance for my new turbo the other day and the guy who was there b4 me traded in his xr6 ute for an xr8 ute... they gave him the same price he payed for his xr6 when he bought it new and he only paid the difference between the xr6 and xr8, so basically a free trade in, which is very nice!

so anyone out there with a ba that they've had for a little bit, try and trade in and get a price and keep updating!

was in talking to the local dealer on the weekend tyre kicking around the 2nd hand yard, while talking to the sales person he said that the wholesale price of au2 & 3 has started to move up recently. He thinks that the good publicity from the BA is helping.
