Mate there is a great VT wagon for sale up here on the Sunny Coast. Brisbane Dealers are a bit harsh. It was at Pelican Motors I think.

VX S2 Berlina Wagon with Phreddied bits.
Wagons have always been more expensive to purchase than Sedans.....

New or secondhand.....;)

Even if you wanted to trade it in on another sedan the same as yours, the car yards would still want you to pay money as well. That's how they make a living.

I agree ....

You will only get wholesale or under on your trade in and you will be paying RRP or above at the car yard (including the cost of the warranty).

Some good points there guys, but not always true. Having worked in the car industry a long time ago, I would trade a car that I know would sell compared to a common looking one. If he spots a car that is coming to the end of its safety certificate period or the dealer has had it for a few months with no one being interested you might be suprised with what they will do.

Sorry but your sound system may have *COST* you thousands but it's worth very little in the context of selling your car. Very few people will pay much extra for it and at best it might sway their decision your way if all else was equal.
