Hi – all you car anoraks. Just after some advice really. 2 sons need to change cars (with my help) with one a little urgent to fit a 'baby seat' in. I've / we've chosen to sell them and then haggle on next cars with no part-exchange involved.
Son 1 (baby) has a 106 Van XAD 1997 120K MOT late May and it sailed through with a few 'perished' and 'bulbs' etc
. Very reliable
but being an old diesel a bit loud (probably like someone's missus).
My suggestion of buying a large size dog cage and placing it in the back of the van did not meet approval.
Do I sell as is with 9 months MOT (£600 ??) or
do I MOT again and sell with 12 months MOT and up the price a little (£700) How saleable is this van ??
Son 2 is similar situation but not linked to a baby and is slightly more debatable and not quite so urgent but needs to be done as soon as we can find a suitable replacement.
He has a 1998 Megane 1.4E Liberte 46K on clock (full service history) MOT due Jan and it passed the last MOT with nothing wrong.
Do I sell as is with 5 months MOT (£750 ??) or do I MOT again now and sell with 12 months MOT and up the price a little (£850) Is this price about right considering the mileage ??
