Hi all,


I am now selling my Anni GTI 1.8T and am wondering how much to sell it for?


I have it up for £8,750 due to it being very low mileage at 45,000 and in perfect condition inside and out, but would listen to offers around £8,400 (especially forum members!)


For pictures and full spec its in the For Sale section of the forum and on Pistonheads and ebay - Click Here to view Pistonheads Ad


Its obviously a bit of a hard time to sell a car at the moment but don't want to price it under its value just to sell it, as it truely is in excellent condition and low mileage!


Any advice on pricing would be helpful!


Lee

Insanely overpriced. Have never understood the absurd price tags attached to Anni's. Limited or not (a few thousand isn't exactly exclusive anyway), for what is essentially a tarted up 1.8T or a 1.9 diesel to be bordering on R32 money is silly.

 It is rather overpriced for an Anni, however saying that they do fetch a premium. Id say more around the 7k mark and it would be a seller.

I agree that they are a tarted up GTI but as Dan and Mikie said they do fetch more than standard GTI's. I have already had some interest so am confident of selling it for nearer £8400 than £7000!

Yeah, i do understand peoples points of view and they are a tarted up GTI, but people pay the price for what they want and many of times people of pointed out that if you wanted to make a standard GTI into and Anni then it would cost you the same if not more to do so.

^^^Thats very helpful isnt it??

 

It's only worth what someone is prepared to give for it. People will tell you your mad to be looking for that amount of money when you could have a newer car for the same amount. Thats rubbish.

If someone wants an Anni they arent going to compare the price to a Mark V, it'll be another Mark IV. If people think it's to dear you wont be hearing much but there is always people looking for Anni's regardless of cost. It's the quality of the car your paying for. Just my two pence worth....

Cheers JKay. I agree, and as ive said i have had some interest and will listen to sensible offers. No matter what people say they'll always be limited and desired!

I think you'll fetch 7 - 7.5K for it. Looks a tidy car, i do think that prices for the 25th Anni are mental at times but as someone has said, they are only worth what people are willing to pay and luckily for Anni owners they still fetch more than a 'normal' GTI because people want them. However if it was me in the market for a 7 year old petrol motor.. I'd sink it into an Audi S3 225 without a second thought, the Golf Anni maybe a limited model but you don't see many mint S3 8L's on the road neither.

 The S3 is a great car but you have to remember you'll be paying a few extra pound on servicing with the Haldex and tyres will need to be kept in stock if you've got a heavy left foot [;)]


Best of luck with your sale[Y]

The Anniversary is a far better looking car than the standard GTI, so I think they are worth the extra £££, same with the MK V and the edition 30.


People buy standard GTI's then spend hundreds even thousands on bodykits, 18" alloys, lowering kits, smoked headlights, silver interior trim etc to make their cars look better, i.e. like or similar to the Anni.

But even when they've spent that extra money it'll never be an anni!

Absolutley correct my friend. Spend all that money modding and when they come to sell it they'll only get the same as a standard GTI, maybe a few hundred more [:)]

I think you should set the bottom limit at £8000 and dont accept anything less than that.


If someone comes in and offers £8000 for it cash i would snap their hand off as i think that would be a good price to get as average mileage Annis are going for about £6500 on ebay.

I like it, with cars like this you just have to wait for the right buyer. Or sell it to someone that isn't fussy for an Anni for much less. Anythings only worth what people will pay for it, and people pay 15k plus for Escort Cosworths that are 15 years old and silly money for mk1 golfs. I've a funny feeling that golf Annis could be worth more in the future.

Bit of a tough one mate.


Ive seen your car for sale for sometime (on here and other forums) and i must admit when i saw the price i thought you were being abit optomistic mate @ £8.75k. Nice example i know but other than a hit kit, remap, dv and dogbone mount the car is standard. There are so many Anni's for sale now you its hard to make your car stand out. If youre keen to sell you need to be open to reduce the price in my opinion.


If i was looking to sell my anni if be looking between 7.5-8k with my mods as if im selling my car i will price it to sell.....and mines done 54k.


If you take a look at Matt's car- http://www.pistonhea...les/1008378.htm. He is looking at £8.5k and you also get coilovers, refurb rims, miltek system, Forge FMIC.... the list goes on. His car is still in keeping with the Anni OEM theme. Granted the mileage is 66k but for the extra you get, id be happy to pay that considering the mods would have cost an arm and a leg. Saying that... when you mod your car you will never get back what youve spent.


Its just my opinion but i say this as constructive feedback. Personally id wouldnt expect you to get over 8k for the car which i think is still a good price considering.


Good luck with the sale

According to the AA 2nd hand guide, £7800ish is about right. [y].

An Escort cosworth is a true classic though and completely different to an RS2000, unlike the anni which is basically wheels, trim and valances from a gti. I agree they might be worth a bit in 10-15 years when mk4s aren't like dog turds. Same with mk1 golfs they're appreciating because they're rare and again a true classic. imho vw made a mistake with the anni it should have been the flagship R32 that was limited edition and supplied with the numbered details.

The wheels, trim and valances are only found on the Anni. A standard GTI doesnt have these extras.[:)]
