    I'm trying to do a comparison between the price offered by "we (insert "want", "need", "buy") any car" sites and an accurate private sale price for my Honda......I've done the Parkers guide thing, but it wont give me a figure for the actual mileage for my car. The price I'm getting is based on 70k, my car has done 49k.

    Can anyone help?

    Mileage wont really effect value too much as its only 20k. Price it the same as cars with higher mileage if you want to sell it quicker :) all I can suggest is look at sold car prices not unsold for a true indication of value.. I work in the bike trade but we have 5 or 6 car branches too.

    Morning Ged.........Seemingly it's worth 4.5k with 70k miles on it, I don't really want it hanging around (I have 2 weeks temp insurance cover on it) so was going to try selling at £4200 and it only has 49k miles.

    Need to get it MOT'ed first though.

    49k on that Honda diesel is nothing, its hardly run it. My dad has the same model with the same engine & hes had it from brand new (08) plate & has never had a problem with it. Good cars the Honda & the 2.2 engine is quite nippy whilst returning good mpg

    Picked up the Roadster.........crap it's quick.

    I found some paperwork, apparently it's got a Reddot remap, Stealth exhaust, venom induction kit, Streetune suspension and Stainless Steel intercooler pipes.

    Big Thumbs Up

    [MENTION=16113]Mayo[/MENTION]...........err what details?

    55 plate 2.2 CDTI Civic Sport in Metalic Silver (from memory "Sport" gives you 17" alloys, HID lights, Fancy metal pedals and I think stiffer suspension).

    Interior is Black and as good as perfect.

    Very good condition except for a scuff right at the bottom of the front off side valance?/wing? (dunno what it's called)
    Very small supermarket ding in passenger door.
    Usual stone chips for a 48k mile car.

    Part service record (Honda to start with and since a mobile guy we have used for years) last serviced about 5k ago.

    Passed MOT today, with 2 new front tires......no advisories.

    Enough info?
