    A tricky one, i'm not sure if the auto box would make it worth more or less, it certainly reduces the prospective market.

    It also has damage to the bumper which wont help matters.

    To give you an idea we baught a '96 1.8T avant 2 years ago for 1200quid. It was a good price at the time, however the car had a dented front wing and was on 150k

    Given your car has similarish damage and is in effect a year older than when we baught ours i'd say its going to be worth less than that. Its also not an estate meaning again its worth less.

    I'd take a guess at around 800-1000quid as a top end price.

    Well the lower edge of the bumper seems bent at the same corner as the scuff? As though its been driven into something and the bumpers popped back into shape?

    Maybe its just the photo though.

    Lower edge of the bumper indeed looks bent, also appears to be missing the tow eye cover grill and it might be the photo but the panel gap on the leading edge of the front o/s wing doesn't look quite right.

    Did you buy it at auction? The ignition key looks as though it has an auction lot number on it - unless you have a very weird taste in key fobs! Looks nice though.

    And I see the number 184 on the keyfob matches the ticket on the windscreen. Not being funny, just wondering why it there and how much it cost you at auction - actually just being nosey because I'm looking for a 1.8 TQS
