Thanks Limerick man, we had the AA out a while ago and he advised we should sell it privately as ,"some black guy might buy it as a taxi".

WTF??


Too old for a taxi.

Throw it up on donedeal and it'll go!

What do you think of this one? It ticks all the boxes for me spec wise. I'd like a slighter lesser mileage but it's not much for an 07.

I'm specifically looking at 07's as I feel that there is less demand because of the tax reduction in 08.

What price would you offer? Anyone have any experience of the dealer?

I do. I don't have a commute to work so mileage will be low.

Seems grand, did you get a warranty?

They seem to be doing their best to hide the towbar in the pictures.

Best of luck with it

if it came for under 11,000 it wouldn't be bad i suppose, looks a nice, genuine well minded car. Just remember you would want to be keeping it for a number of years to balance out the the depriciation.

Hi,

Would appreciate any views on how much I should be looking to pay for one of these http://www.carzone.ie/search/Renault/Megane/III-Iris/201145205495049/advert?channel=CARS (same car and spec just not this exact one) I'm looking to trade in (a 08 lancer with 110k km on the clock) so they've said the Megane can be mine for 13,250 with the trade in. Got the lancer by default more or less so this is my first time dealing with this sort of thing.

There are 90 bhp versions out there for around 2k less, how much heed will they take of this as a reason to reduce the asking price? How much is that extra 20bhp worth?

Also, there's a newer version of this GT line model coming later in 2012 with a slightly better spec and limited external changes, would this affect the price of a 2011 model?

Any feedback on what i should pay would be really welcome. 13,000 is my absolute limit. Is there anything like road tax/extended warranty whatever else that I could look for them to through in to sweeten the deal?

Cheers for any ideas.

Hi all,.
Have read through most of this thread, and its extremely helpful! I'm looking to buy my first car in order to learn, and want it asap, just wondering what you think of this one
http://cars.donedeal.ie/for-sale/cars/3061757
Any opinions appreciated, thanks, Laura.

Looks fine, i wouldn't personally touch it at €1,400 as it's a bit dear. if you got it for €1,100 or €1,200 maybe.

it's a vauxhall too, ie. an import.

Jesus i'm shocked it sold that quick, normally Corsa's are a fairly bad seller!

I'm selling my car at the moment, has anyone any comment to make on my ad - see sig - am I asking too much? Anything else I could do to help it sell?

Things are slow at the mo, looks a genuine car and the ad is flawless. You're just gonna have to hold out.
