Thanks for the heads-up Omaragha but this has too many doors (and not my choice of colour if I'm being picky) for me. Though not for me it does sound a belting car with great spec - what is the dealer offering you as a trade-in figure?? That's key to deciding whether a private sale is worth the hassle.

As a rule of thumb you'll end up getting more privately (as the dealer always has to allow for 'prep' costs before sale) however with a private sale you don't know how long it'll take, how many dickheads you'll get messing you around, etc, so that's what you need to weigh up - is the lower dealer trade-in figure worth it due to the convenience it'll bring??

edit - of course dependant upon the price maybe it could be the right colour/shape
