    Default GTi6. Worth anything these days?

    A friend has a 1998 GTI-6 with about 185,000kms for sale in Melbourne (SE suburbs).

    He hasn't listed it yet, but is wondering what sort of value to put on it as he got it for nothing from a relative and has been paying for it ever since. I don't know what exactly has been done, but it definitely has a new radiator, tyres and new coil pack.

    Current issue is starter motor occasionally shrugs its shoulders and decides not to work today. He has been quoted $600 to fix.

    I haven't seen the car for a good few months and last time the gear knob looked dodgy, seats quite worn. Seem to remember lower suspension was about due for new wishbones. It got a roadworthy just over a year ago.

    So, question is, should he take out the good radiator, tyres and coil pack, then scrap the rest or is the car worth something? If so, what is the going price for a GTI-6.

    At $350, worth far more in bits than as a going concern.

    Kms isn't bad, but as an early N5 model it will be missing some of the cosmetic changes that came in later, as well as side airbags.

    I'd say to expect sub $5k for anything but a near-perfect specimen these days.

    Dunno what they are worth, but mine was my favourite car of all time, by a country mile. Absolutely loved the thing, and would still be driving it if I had not pranged it. And I drive a 406 Coupe now.

    Tell your mate if it costs him $500 on average every month it's still cheaper than paying payments on a late model car. Of course, that only makes sense for somebody who grasps the nature of the beast...

    Cheers,
    John.

    Yes find a good mechanic, spend the coin on it now and have it sorted for the next 20yrs.

    He is not interested in spending more on the car, which is just a basic daily transport. Also, he wants to buy my 206GTi, which is in good condition. All I need is to find someone that will do a roadworthy without ripping me off for a new windscreen (unnecessary according to vicroads guidelines).

    It does seem these are now becoming sought after, so he may be able to pass on the GTi6 to someone that will love it and not end up out of pocket by taking over my 206.
