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.

On a 9-5?

I am Si G! Go 9-5?

I admit you might need some imagination to see the "go" bit..

My number I reckon is near to priceless.

what is it worth?

I will scrap alletsE before I sell me number.

I will probably scrap mesen before I sell me number... I would like a clue though!


Mister in the wrong place!

It's all down to there being someone out there that wants that plate. Ideally more than one if it's in an auction. I have a plate registered with some Number Plate Seller and they agreed with my suggestion that it could be worth £800 or thereabouts. Not a sniff in the last year or so. But I reckon they don't have to be proactive sellers so it's just a matter of waiting. And I've seen some plates on that kind of site at a premium to the price the DVLA are asking.

I'd have a look at the DVLC site to see what they are selling similar plates for, if they do NI plates.

Similar plates SIG **** are being sold for between £100 & £200. ... eyword=sig

When you think you know it all, it's a sure sign you don't.
