    Hey all,

    Due to starting my own business I fear I'm going to have to sell my zed :(( in order to get something with ridiculous fuel economy and no passion. I also need a fair bit more space for transporting computers and all my equipment.

    For those that don't know the history of the car it started out its life as a 2.0 but after a piston failed I had the engine replaced with a 2.2.

    I was curious, what I would be looking at if I were to sell it?

    Thanks in advance,

    Dave

    Wow Dave, that will be like cutting your right arm off :-o

    I'm not really up to date on Z3 prices, but the best you can do is leave it a couple of months if you can. Prices are always lower this time of year, plus less demand.

    That said, you wont double your money if you do wait...

    Good luck mate!

    Sorry to hear that Dave, :( I wondered why your name wasn't on the Silverstone Zedfest list.

    Maybe we will see you back in the Zed world in the future. :coolsteer)

    Good luck with your business venture. :-bd

    Best of luck with your new venture Dave.
    I recently P/X my 2000, 2 Ltr. and the prices i was getting offered was anything beween
    a low of £2500 up to £4500, i think if i had sold it private i would have asked for £4500
    trouble is there's very few buyers out there especialy this time of year!! Saying that though, the one i traded in sold from the garage within 2 weeks!!! Only thing you can do is check out prices on auto trader for something similar spec.

    Sorry to hear this. As you are aware prices are really down at the moment, pity you can't just hang on a few months to get a bit more. Good luck with your business :-bd
