+1 doesnt take much effort either.

altho with my corsa i put it up for 3000 ambitiously and got that for it haha it was an 02 standard model with 40k on it.

lots of mods tho, but was pleased with the money i got for it

I am glad my car wasnt valued using this when I had someone crash into it recently. This thinks my car is worth 1885, but i just had 2600 worth of work on it and it wasnt written off!!

Ritchy has a spectacular aura aboutRitchy has a spectacular aura about
wont give me a price for my zs, and says in the reliability bit
Coolant levels critical to engine health. Suspension wears rapidly - look for uneven tyre wear. Cambelt renewal after 40k miles/4 years essential

never seen a broken spring on a zs, infact all the suspension components are well above average
cambelt is 90,000 6 years for either kv6 or k4

also says it get 50mpg, i dont think so

I thought it over valued my price tbh. MK1 160 3DR (Insurance group 30??), 55,000 - 2,440.

Take it what car. It's yours.
