Thinking of selling my GTI

2014 GTI. 19,000 miles. How much do you think I could get selling myself?

Kbb said like $19,000. Does that sound right?

I would put it back to stock besides the H&R Springs.

Looking at getting an Audi Allroad. Found one not through a dealer that I have interest in.

going from a mid level unreliable car to the least reliable car in history is always a good choice

As long as it's a newer one with the 3.0T it'll be fine. The old Allroads with the POS 2.7TT were awful. The newer supercharged 3.0 is probably one of the most reliable motors the VAG group has ever produced.

The price you listed seems about right. Selling a modded car is tougher. Even if you remove your mods the lowering springs will turn some folks away. When I was shopping for my GTI I saw several nice cars that were lowered so I kept on looking. I'm not saying you won't be able to sell your car just that you are narrowing the field of potential buyer.

It's your call, but I would stay away from an Audrey Allroad. Good luck with your sale.

A 2014 Wolf with only 19,000 on the clock? I'd buy it between $17-$20k, if I were looking.

Unless you sold your stock springs, I would also highly suggest putting them back on... Modifications could turn off potential buyers.

$19k seems on the high side, even with the low mileage

That is (and is creeping into) MK7 pricing territory

The only mods I find acceptable (for the most part) are non-performance things like really well done stereo equipment or minor things like the blue "euro" blind spot mirrors. I almost didn't contact the owner of the car before me to look at it because it has an APR s1 reflash.

I hope you do very well with your possible sale and purchase.

Price sounds OK but as the last year of the MK6, most buyers would move up to a MK7 with a little more miles for the same money. You have low miles but your factory warranty is almost done so MK6 buyers can get low mileage 2010-12 cars for much less money.

If you want to make the move, do it. I have a 2010, never been in the rain, 9800 miles on it, no mods, other than you can drive and the DVD RNS 510 will play. Car is like new, love the car, couldn't/wouldn't possibly sell it for what any book says it is worth.

Even the exhaust chrome tips look like new, lol.

Three cars, a truck and a motorcycle, can't drive them all everyday.

That's almost as crazy as the 2013 with 578 miles in the classifieds. When I bought my MK6 it was 18 months old and already had 89,000 miles on it!
