Yes service history documentation including old MOT certs showing mileage etc. will be needed to get so much money for it so the new buyer will to be able to prove the mileage when he sells it on in the future.

Im sorry but wether its done 39,000 or 239,000 miles , its still a 20 year old car so will need to br checked over thoroughly, not using a car much can do as much damage as using it a lot.
A 2,000 mile average sounds great but its not the be all and end all.
Having said that it looks lovely and hope it sells

It looks lovely to me - although I'm not a fan of estates really. 2.5k is 'mint' money and seeing as it'll need quite a bit of bodywork to sort the door and the wing I think 1995 is probably more like it. Should've been more careful down Asda's Granny! :)

I would have had it in blink, bought the Xantia now though... thats got 11k on it now :) soon going to have to service it. Good luck with the sale, bang it on ebay as a classified ad and that gives you a while to find the right buyer

I'm in 2 minds on this one. My first Athena bought in 04 with 53k on clock threw a rod with no warning inside 1K miles. Full service history garaged etc etc.
Equally its still agood basic car. Trouble is it needs IMHO full engine flush, full coolant flush and replacement, full LHM change. Then all coolant hoses, front brake flexys, sphere check (min),
rear trailing arm bearing strip and regrease/change etc etc It's the rubber bits that rot and you can't avoid certain things like front suspension return pipes/Octopus etc etc. However if the car is basically sound I'm with Tim probably worth around 2K.

Hmm I think if you wait around deciding on a price too long it will be snapped up. I've never seen a TZD with that mileage in over 8 years of BX club membership so if its as good as it looks don't hang about.

Another one like it just doesn't exist, it is 20 years old and has been used so will have some marks.

Does it really need all of those things? I'd give it a service and just use it. If it's had gentle use over the years, that's fine. It's when you start leaving these cars parked up for years that things can get problematic - though even then they seem to cope better than some Citroens. I would find out when the timing belt was last replaced mind - not yet due in mileage terms! (as per original manufacturer gap of 72k miles).

It's so interesting reading all the posts! My nan is finding it quite amusing that its attracting a fair bit of attention!
I can see the price is causing quite a stir too... It's a tough one for us as its pretty unique & so finding comparables is impossible. There's loads of life left in the old girl yet (that's the car as well as my Nan :D ) and so we didn't want to give it away.
Anyway it's on car & classic & I asked for offers but no one seems to want to do that... Argh!!!!!!

When it eventually goes I'll be sure to keep you all posted so that'll give you something else to chew the phat over!!!!

Price always seems to bring plenty of debate on this forum ;) but all the best with the sale & fingers crossed you get a decent price. Now if you'd been selling it about 7 years ago we would all have been agog if it made more than £750, how times have changed :)

It does look very nice but still £1500 tops IMHO, did the TZD estates not have spliter and spots then?

That is probably the best place for it to get the most for it Vicki , they usually have very high and quick sales results.

No they didn't mate, only the hatch was a GTi lookalike, £1500 is what a nice 80-90000 miler fetches now, bearing in mind what WTF sold for recently with a less desirable engine and more miles!
