Forum rules


We tend to get quite a few 'what's it worth?' threads, now we have somewhere to put them!

Those starting a thread on here should do so expecting the answers to vary.
You are likely to get people attempting to grab a bargain (a 5dr 99 Turbo you say? Probably worth about a hundred quid scrap value - I will bring the cash round and take it off your hands).
You will also get optimistic opinions (there is only 9-3 Sport left in the whole world - I would take it off your hands for £1,000,000 right now but my wife would kill me/your too far away/I've got nowhere to put it).
Also be prepared to be offended because you know what you would like for it/what it owes you (why are you posting here) and no one has said its worth that.

You would probably be better off putting an ad in the Classifieds section with a price that you think is about right...if no-one buys it, lower the price. If the car sells within minutes you might have been able to get a bit more but hey, you have got what you wanted!

People replying to requests should be polite, respectful, and honest please. If you cannot do that, please don't post.
No need to say 'stick it on eBay with a good listing, a 99p start and no reserve' because we have just said it right here...
Any posts found to be breaking these simple rules will be removed.

Some of the classic magazines (Classic Cars and Practical Classics for example) have price guides in the back...it is worth having a look in there if you have got a classic SAAB. Or look in the UKS classified archives for previously advertised cars and asking prices.

The time has come to renew the insurance on my daily driven 9k Aero, I know that prices have shot up recently so how much should I insure it for? Quick spec of the car: 1996 silver manual Aero with 144k miles nice clean Rocky black Aero leather seats, clean bodywork, few marks, no rust, recent timing chain kit, genuine clutch, rebuilt gearbox with Quaife ATB (lsd), Jules remap (T7 boost control) full 3" stainless exhaust system with sports cat, poly bushed suspension arms/engine mounts, Bilstein dampers, new brake disks with EBC Yellowstuff pads, braided brake and clutch lines. Unfortunately no history other than MOT history as the previous keeper didn't forward it as promised :( .
Anyway what do you think she's worth?

I have mine '95 Aero with many extras insured for £2,500 on a agreed value policy as a cherished vehicle. 180,000 miles.

You'd probably have to pay between £3.5k & £5k for a similar replacement.

So I'd say the £5 - £6k as an agreed value for insurance purposes is about right.

The underwriters will knock it back if they think its too high, they may also increase it if they think its too low.

That's what happened with the agreed value on my 99T, the agreed value came back at more than I had valued it at.

If your not paying extra for an agreed value they will obviously only pay out what the market value is at the time, never mind what you have said its worth when taking out the insurance.

I may be under insured then :( but the agreed value was to cover the costs of all the extras i had added over and above market value if it ever got written off.

Values have risen dramatically in the last year or so which is why I posted as had an idea of value but wasn't 100% sure
