I don't, I sold it for a £1000 last year and it failed to sell when it was last put up for sale at £2000 shortly afterwards. I think it would need to be totally fault free before fetching record money for TZD. They haven't gone up in value in reality with many still failing to sell.
Some interesting points made on this and previous threads. It seems we'd all like BX values to increase, yet every time one comes up for sale there are those rightly or wrongly insist that they are overvalued. Perhaps we all think our cars are worth more than they really are because we have some emotional attachment or want some return for all the money spent on them.
Should I ever need to sell my GTi I'd be concerned about being slated on here for what I'd want, although I should add I do not have a value in mind! From my perspective I've owned the car for 13 years, it runs well, doesn't get thrashed, doesn't have much rust, has a good interior, it's only failed the MOT 2 or 3 times and has been very well (i.e. expensively!) looked after. Indeed just this morning when it was in Medway Citroen one of the mechanics said "he looks after this better than his missus!" However from from everyone else's perspective it is a car in pretty much original condition but with 24 years of knocks and scrapes in desperate need of a paint job largely due to the failing lacquer. i.e. not worth much. Possibly the basis of a good car for someone who can do the bodywork themselves or cheaply. In part I haven't done that work because the car is always parked on the street at risk of damage but mainly because of the cost, which could be in the region of £2000 and not something I can currently justify. Bearing that in mind and on the assumption that that white TZD is in at least as good mechanical condition and is excellent body and paint wise then it becomes good value compared to restoring my car. In the end it's whatever the market will stand and what people will pay on the day , but I think we should all err on the side of promoting the value of the BX as a great car to help strengthen values. And yes if I had the resources to restore my GTi you'll all be queuing at the door for it!
Coming back to the TZD being the last registered there is always this kudos for firsts and lasts, it's the same in railway preservation, although perhaps last made rather than last registered would interest me more.
