    Pearlescent paint is like a pearl in that ir slightly changes colour. ie my car is cactus green pearl, and it is a green with a gold coloured metalic flake in it. Civic Type-Rs in black are a pearl paint as you look closely in a cars headlight you will see that the flake in the paint os blue.

    Whats my S3 Worth these days??

    Probably will from a dealer, but the point I was making is that as an independant, we could not work on those figures. Based on the valuation you have we would be able to put the car up for £19995.

    Whats my S3 Worth these days??

    We would not be able to sell the car for the full retail price as noted by cap. That is why we have a Ferrari 360 Spyder at £100k which is almost the scrap value. I understand what you are saying but the car he is buying will need work or has had work, so there will be £1500 in that one to...

    Whats my S3 Worth these days??

    Trade prices are as follows £17350 clean, £16350 Average, £15350 below, and retail will be £19850. However as a garage we would look to buy that in at 16-16500 and sell it at £17500 - £18000. Hope this helps without upsetting you too much
