Am looking to change mine in the spring, but if it gives you a guide, its a 30i manual, that i would consider to be in very good condition, and i will be happy to get £8000 for it.
The difficult part is finding the right buyer who understands the benefit of buying one of these thats had all the weak points addressed.
Your average punter that is not familiar with this model, tends to buy on mileage and condition, which unfortunately is not always the right approach.
I would favour buying from an enthusiast who has owned the car for a while, and addressed all the known issues.
IMO that seems a bit low for a 30i.
You may well be right Mike, will look at how the market is in the spring.

For £10k I'd want the wheels refurbished and the lights and parcel shelf fixing. And 20,000 miles wiped off the odometer. And a bigger engine or £2k cashback.

There are plenty of similar cars on Autotrader for a lot less. For example, a 23i highline on 66k miles for under £8k...

As discussed wrong time to off load a roadster…forum member 30i auto, fully loaded low miles went for £8k a few weeks ago..
We choose to go to on with this endeavour at this time and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard..

Hi all,

Thank you everybody for your feedback and comments!

First off - I wanted to apologise for this being my first post, I appreciate how this comes off. I have often reviewed the forum over the years I've owned the vehicle and often found the information posted by members to be useful and informative, and in hindsight I should have created an account and been active before posting an ad.

As for the price, I initially set this based on research a couple of months ago (I'm guessing the height of popularity in summer!) I have since taken a look around vehicles for sale from private sellers, and updated the price to reflect this.
