    Advice Wanted: Car

    Hello all

    I have a 1997 Ford Fiesta, 91000 miles, 1.3 that I want to get rid of.

    It needs about £400 worth of work to suspension, exhaust, brakes and gears,
    which, quite frankly, I can't afford.

    Its MOT is due in a month, which I'm almost certain it won't pass.

    Any advice on how I get rid of this car?

    Preferably for a tiny bit of cash, but really don't know what my options are!

    Thanks a lot,

    David

    ebay, but make sure you get payment first (not winning the auction to just have a look...) Someone will have it off you. Make sure you put a very accurate description to ensure no timewasters.

    I've never used Ebay motors before, but sounds like a good option. Any particular hints?

    Wait for a free motors listing day or a 5p listing day, Because the final value fee and an insert fee will cost a fortune!

    Why not use the car as a full deposit :? May get more for your money then.... HTH

    EDIT - This would be useful if you was buying a new car at the same time :oops:

    david me old mucker!
    im doing this shortly with my punto which is a wreck

    to do this you need:
    some tools
    a drive and a garage
    and a understanding missus
    some tools

    i am going to put the car in the garage and get another and keep that on the drive

    i will advertise parts on fiat/punto forums and ebay and let people come and take what they need

    example
    bonnet - £20-50
    boot 50 with glass
    doors £15 each (4 door)
    wheels with tires - 10-15 each (5 wheels)
    clutch/gearbox what ever i can get
    mats - 5er
    seats £5-10
    engine - 50 quid

    give it a few months and the entire car will be gone

    get a couple of hundred easily - then phone someone from the local paper to take it away for free
    (the crucial bit is that the wheels go LAST

    The door mirrors, Headlight clusters, Rear light clusters etc, Should all be worth £10 each to

    i had a phone call to answer - so i had to stop typing - but yes - a 5er a wing mirror etc ect

    you DO need to make sure you can move it without dragging it though then you have done
