Yes,but again no one is really going to offer Me that amount for My car.
It’s possible.Popped into my local stealers and was told they would buy back my UP GTi for what I pair £14.5k mine is a fully loaded white 3 door.
Go on VW and cars now fetching £17.5k at the end of the day its supply and demand and if people are willing to pay then the price will creep up.
I will be keeping mine another 14mths and then it will be chopped in
The market IS buoyant due to a lack of supply and strong demand. It's always the way when dealer stocks have dried up and lease/PCP returns haven't started yet. Next year could be interesting as we hit 2 years as around May/June some PCP cars will be on market and if there is a new model then that might have an influence (though I suspect price will be higher maintaining a significant gap (even at today's prices) used vs new. They were too cheap initially thanks to dealers chasing sales targets but now that's past us, natural supply and demand are keeping prices firm.How can Volkswizzard, a small non franchised dealer ask and receive simply daft prices for a second hand car, unless the market for that car is very buoyant.
I am not affiliated with Andrew / Volkswizard, but once I decided to sell firstly I contacted the selling dealer who said that he would buy the car back at a trade price of £8/9000 (19 plate, 6 months old and 1700 miles) obviously this was a cheeky bid but on the off chance I then contacted Volkswizard, agreed a price and the deal was done, as stated no offers or haggling. I am happy with the price given and he's moved the car on relatively quickly, so everyone is a winnerThe market IS buoyant due to a lack of supply and strong demand.

When it sold that car was advertised at £14489 (not £14989) which was in line with others for sale with that spec and mileage. Condition couldn't have been better thanks to a fussy owner (thanks Chris) and it sold to an equally fussy buyer from Cornwall. He told me what I need to pay and I paid it in full (no offers or haggling) so he clearly though this was a fair trade price which it just about was (incidentally I believe I paid £5k more than the VW dealer he bought it from and can't see them asking less than £14500 for it....).
So these prices for good spec cars in as new condition with a handful of miles are not daft at all. These prices do not apply to basic spec cars which should be significantly less or cars with over 5k miles or any modifications. For example I don't buy basic cars at any price (unless they come in px).
WBAC never increase their offer when you arrive at their place. I have sold a few cars to them, and I am always pleased with offered price. I did once try to haggle the price up as the guy agreed that my car was in perfect condition, but as it was as I stated on the valuation information, there was no room for manoeuvre. I did not sell that car to them that day, but went back later as I was fed up with the usual tyre kickers when attempting to sell privately.That's nearly £1300 over their last offer, and no doubt if they had cast their peepers over my car, that £10,500 could be £11,000
You will possibly get an email from them in a week or so advising you that your car value has increased. Happens to me now and again. I check WBAC every month or so for valuations of our cars, and occasionally I get the email with an increase in value.Just put My car’s details in and comes up with £9165,thats for a car in pristine condition,just under 12 months old with 1500 miles on the clock.
I live in Liverpool,seventy odd miles away from you but your GTI is worth £1335 more than mine?.Sorry,that does not make sense.All i can say about your valuation, is that the market must be different in which ever part of the country you live.
Week last Thursday i put in my details, and up came £9125, which even if i was thinking of selling the car, i would never accept.
This morning, another email, with an offer of £10,500.
Either there must be a very keen customer desperate to obtain a mint low mileage Gti, or they know the market has warmed up considerably.
They would not offer that kind of money unless someone was desperate for my car.
Thankfully my car is staying put, but we all know an Up Gti is not a standard Vw Up.
