    how much should i ask for my rover metro

    I have a rover metro that i brought 3 years ago to learn to drive and for cheap insurance.

    It has less then 19,000 miles on the clock (and have all mot and paperwork) starts every time and for a 1993 car i think it is in great condition.

    The only thing wrong is there is a bit of lacquer peeling from the top.

    anyone no how much i should ask for it???

    about £250-£400 dependant on tax/mot.....should be an easy sell to someone looking for a cheap runaround

    Sorry mucky but I don't think it's fair people giving people false hope. The prices boothy were talking about were completely unrealistic. The plain truth is that Metros are lurking waaayyy down at the bottom of the desirability list, new, old, expensive, cheap or anywhere in between.
    You really shouldn't build your hopes up too much. Unless you sell it with a long mot and tax I honestly think you'd be lucky to sell it at all, and even with a long mot/tax I'd say £200 would be an absolute top price.
    My comments were more a dig at others mis-advising than they were aimed at you or your car.
    Sorry about your predicament and would really like to be wrong and for you to get a good price for it. :thumbsup:

    Oh, and you're an authority now on Metro prices? It was only a few days ago you were asking the same stuff.

    BG1, you are missing something. Seriously.

    Yeah but you would be helping out a friend as well, you know the one who has a test coming up soon;-)

    OP, the car is probably worth about £250 at best imo, what are the arches like?

    If it's really clean ebay with some good pics may be worth a shot.
