    anyone got access to parkers to make adjusted valuations? that way i can walk in there with a price on paper i should aim at.

    I'd start at 4800, it's worth a bit more because of mileage but not a huge amount more. To be honest the salesman will know full well what Parkers price is so it will be no surprise.

    No worries, make sure you get some warranty and a set of mats throw in :thumbsup:

    Though may be cheaper to arrange your own warranty - warrantydirect.co.uk/

    Don't forget to take Insurance & Tax costs into account.
    The car requires a new cambelt at 40,000 miles so shouldn't require an unexpected spend - haven't seen a time equivalent e.g. 40,000 miles or 2 years.

    Price seems reasonable mileage adjusted.

    Are you part exchanging? If not you will be able to negotiate a better deal - you should start under £5000 but be prepared to pay around £5k

    Bear in mind this car with such a low mileage will be very rare - so the garage will be mindful ot hold out for a decent price, knowing that they will not replace it easily.

    If you are part exchanging, concentrate solely on the price to change - ie the balance due. The price of their car and your PX value are irrelevant in this case as long as you can get the price to change as low as possible.
