Glasses guide is exactly that. A guide. I work in the motor trade, and in the current economic climate, Glasses is so out of touch with what traders are really valuing cars at, that I wouldn't take any valuation as accurate.

CAP or the Black Book is far more accuarate.

Sorry to rain on Cyrus' parade. Good find, but useless informattion.

Well, with the current economic climate, surely Glass's should have valued the car I am interested in as higher than on the market ? But it valued it much lower than the sellers are pricing it at. Yes, that does mean its not the most accurate but the current economic climate has nothing to do with it it seems.

Do you have links for CAP or Black book .... and are they free ?

OR, you could say that the seller is OVERCHARGING ???????

The others are TRADE only, so I don't think there are any links.

Seller is not overcharging at all. I have researched the prices and those are the kinds of prices everyone is charging for similar spec'd cars.

So, this is not bad AS A FREEBIE. Obviously not a profesional source of information but then you are not paying professional prices

Agree. Prices seem to be changing very rapidly. Am still looking for a car. Went to see a Primera last week. Despite me asking if all paperwork was in order before I made the 50mile trip, paperwork was not complete "was with DVLC". As if....

Garages seem to be at least £1,000 on top of private prices. Too much to pay IMO. Am considering finding a mechanic to come with me to a car auction, anyone know someone in North West who could do this?

OK. Well enjoy the BMW. Obviously my 19 years in the trade means nothing when I'm having a discussion like this with you.

Why are there so many V Vectras for sale, market seems flooded with them?

Your advice and help is taken on board. There is no reason to be rude about it ... I am, obviously, new to this so am just voicing my opinions.

I wouldnt be on a discussion board if I would not listen and soak in what others have to say.

Welcome if you are new. Take a little time to appreciate that there are lots of people here who willingly provide a lot of help. If you don't like the repsonse, don't take it peronally.

Clearly there must have been something in what Cyrus said, or you would not now be asking him for help......I admire your style
