The value of any car is determined by what someone is willing to pay for it. First thing I suggest is you ring around a few insurance companies and get a quote on insurance and how much they are willing to insure for at agreed value. That will give you an indication of it's value. I'd try to haggle a thousand off the price.

Redbook says $7,700 - $9,800 for one sold privately...and $4,900 - $7,000 for trade-in so the one on the net is asking top dollar. The photo is also almost 6 months old?....but it sure looks nice.

Redbook always seems to under value things a little in my opinion. There's only 7 of this model listed on carsales. One asking $14000. Providing this one is in great condition I think $10500 - $11000 is a fair price. Would be even better if it has a logbook service history to go with it.

Just a tip, don't try talking the price down over the phone or by email. Check out the car first, do all the usual checks and then make your offer. Set yourself a limit. If he refuses the offer then there's no harm in walking away but make sure you leave a card with your contact details in case he changes his mind. I'd start the offer at $10,500. If not then say 'ok I'll think about it'. Leave it a few days and if you still want it call back and offer $11,000. Just don't insult the person by offering $5000 :whistling. If the owner really wants it gone they will take $11,000.
