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.

Hi everyone,

I have a Saab 9-5 2004 which I need to sell. I was made redundant and it's just sitting on the driveway now, so it needs a good home.

I'm not 100% sure what type of Saab it is, it's a 9-5 2004 2.3, but I'm sure about the 'turbo ys3e' bit (from the search on ebay). It's dark grey, the bodywork isn't the best, but the inside, engine and gearbox are all excellent. There is some service history, (which I need to dig out). It's just done 100k.

Where can I find out exactly what model it is? And what might a valuation? I know there's not a lot of info, but I can answer any questions. Thanks.

Firstly this post should not be treated as a sales ad, the OP is looking for an idea on what should be his approximate asking price for advertising in the classifieds or elsewhere.
Any signs of it becoming a medium for the sale of the vehicle will result in the thread being removed.

For the OP the reg number might help in identifying the spec as would an interior photo.

With regards value anything from scrap value to just above a grand.

There is not much difference in prices with regards spec other than for Aero's which usually tend to fetch more than cars of a lower spec that are a similar age/condition.

You will get varying opinions on that though,depending on if a person is looking to buy, break or have one of their own and want to talk up prices.

Look in the UKS classified archives for previously advertised cars and asking prices and or completed eBay sales and current asking prices for similar cars.

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