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 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.

I have a Prins auto gas system for a SAAB 9-3 with a doughnut tank, everything there but the gas pipe. Don't know how to price this or even if its worth anything complete or split.... Any ideas?

Not a great deal of value, the expensive bit of an LPG kit is the labour, a good installation takes a couple of days. If you are paying the labour you will want to buy new. Most insurance companies insist on it being certified by an approved installer, and very few will put their name to someone elses installation. I recently gave away a donut tank which was full of gas and it took several years to find someone who wanted it.

Thanks for that info, It makes complete sense now that you have explained it. I may try the injectors on ebay but looks like the rest is for the bin.... :D

Thanks once again for taking the time to reply.

all the beat Gary
