    We buy any car result...

    Whilst idling my time working away from home I submitted details of my Jag to the above site: not selling, just curious. Sov spec remember. Now , I'm a realist: though she's in absolutely lovely nick (details on my sig below) with FSH.... at least until I bought her August last year, but have kept all receipts for parts self-fitted, it's an unpopular model thanks to Twatemy Clarkson et al, is high miles but not for age at 131k, has recently had new DMF etc fitted at 100k. Refurbed wheels, absolutely solid sills, 11 months MoT etc etc.

    So, mes Jaguarè bon amis, and without cheating by putting your own Jag details in (you'd maybe weep..) guess their valuation of my X400.

    The first correct spot-on guess wins a five quid donation by me to Cancer Research UK in your name.

    Have some fun and do some good!

    PS: I entered details of my Wife's Mini Cooper (new BMW Mini design ) out of increasing curiosity: absolutely immaculate unmarked condition, top spec, low miles, dealer trade in book price £8750.... £4000 offered from WBAC.

    At least burglars don't make you look at their own scummy reality as they rob you blind. I hope their Mums are proud of them. Mine wouldn't be if it were me. Thieving c***s. Of the highest order. Owned by BCA last time I looked: probably now owned by that lanky condescending cockwhisker off of Dragons Den. With the right-on patterned socks. Yeah, him. That w****r. Maybe I made that up. But he's still a c**t. A proper rich one. Sorry, had to get that rant out. Deborah Meaden: same category.

    2.2D X Type Sovereign. 57 reg, Indigo blue metallic. 118k when bought mid August, now at 130k. Everything works! (So far....) Niggly jobs and servicing sorted, but always something to do for a tinkerer! New MoT with no advisories.

    Not sure that WBAC.com take account of colour do they? All I remember from years ago is that their algorithmic styled response is so notoriously stingy that the value given will be nowhere near realistic ... especially in the eyes of Forum dwellers!
    So my stab is absolutely no reflection on your otherwise lovely car JohnW ... no offence meant at all!

    £180 just because, like insurance, the valuations are rubbish.
    And it is not their valuation that counts for us.

    They’re always perplexingly low (yes they want to turn a profit, but come on!!) so £450?
