Hey everyone.

Long time lurker, abandoning the commodore world to move into a brand new triton (work/play)

I've got a VXII Berlina, 220k clicks and been offered $500 from the dealer to take it off my hands with no rego.

Now as with any 10+ year old car it has its issues and blemishes, nothing major but no doubt wouldn't pass a roadworthy 1st go. Never caused me any real problems in the 4 years I've had it.

Do I take the cash? Or try sell it privately? And if so, worth spending the time and money to get a Rwc?

VX's still go for 3-5k. hama got 5k for his VS.

id take it to get cut and polished professionally, go on ebay and look for some cheap tidy rims, throw em on and advertise as a great first car to learn in.

Thanks for the replies, didn't really want to part with it for $500, they offered that sight unseen..

Will have a think about it, didn't mean to make this a for sale thread but will send you a message CHAMRA1

sell private, they only offered $500 so your not really going to miss that on a new triton, even if it takes you a few weeks to sell for $3-4k after a detail its only $500 more you have to pay on the ute. I'd buy it for a $1000 just to put the berlina parts on my wagon

I got offered $500 for my VT exec about 3 years ago, I just gave the car to someone rather than go through the effort of selling.
