Re: Valuation needed for probate - R8 200 one owner from new

Sounds reasonable - been amazed now at the other scrap prices, couple of places at £200, any condition, and one at £223 but must be complete.

Will think about how best to proceed next year.

Thanks for the replies folks!

Re: Valuation needed for probate - R8 200 one owner from new

Thanks folks - ideally I'd like to sell it as a parts car, to be stripped an used for spares (save bits going to waste). What would folks think it would be fetch as such? I did one quick scrap car quote which came out at £191! That assumes the steering works though (plus I need to swap the spare on,...

Re: Valuation needed for probate - R8 200 one owner from new

Thanks, think I have fixed the photos now?

I'm assuming scrap/parts car price - you'd either be extremely brave or rather mad to restore it. It served it's purpose very well though.

Valuation needed for probate - R8 200 one owner from new

Hi folks, sadly I need a probate valuation for my late father's 1994 R8 218SD Turbo, which he owned from new. Before you get too excited, the car has done 185,000 miles, hasn't moved since 2011, has a very serious water ingress issue so the interior is damp and mouldy and the ignition key barrel is ...

Re: 'Classics For Carers' charity stay-at-home event 7th June 2020

OK so my 218 is still in a 'project' state but here is my contribution to the event. Look carefully to see the back of an R8 :wink3 https://scontent.flhr1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/102298626_10158743762284260_2599512109392754084_o.jpg?_nc_cat=110&_nc_sid=07e735&_nc_ohc=crLdTF1b33gAX-qI0yz&...

If you are intending to take part and would like to display a rally plate or sticker on the day, then I suggest you order ASAP to ensure delivery before Sunday - in some places Royal Mail deliveries are still a bit slower than usual. Rally plates and stickers can be purchased here: https://shop.drag...

Re: Valuation help requested for legal purposes

Yes I think you have, many thanks - although when it comes to justifying any valuation, having as many different opinion as possible will make that much easier. If they all come up with similar values then even better (although I am not trying to influence what folks might reply here - if opinion ar...

Re: Valuation help requested for legal purposes

Thank you very much folks - great to have some replies so quickly :clapping I should also have mentioned that the interior has a light covering of mould but it appears it will all clean off fairly easily (apart from the above mentioned headlining). Some of the interior is also dismantled at the mome...

Valuation help requested for legal purposes

Hello all I need to obtain a valuation for one of my Dad's R8 218s for legal purposes and would be very grateful for help with this (the car is not for sale on the open market). So essentially just tell me what you think it would be worth on the open market, or what you would be willing to pay. 1994...
