Arrow Modified 3.0 TDI. whats it worth?

Hi guys.
I may need to change my car soon and im just wondering how much people think my 57 plate 3.0 TDI may be worth?

Sounds lovely and not like any other diesel ive heard. RS5 style front grill. Standard grill supplied. Fly eye/ tinted rear lights. Facelift LED rear lights also supplied. Tinted side and rear windows. Front strut brace. 113k miles. Major service carried out recently. Full professional detail carried out recently by jw autoshine. Thousands spent. Comes with a full MOT. Heated seats. DRL. Cruise control.
i dont know how i can add photos to this post?

Always difficult to gauge, but from what i've seen modified cars dont go for more than the standard equivalent, and if anything can be much harder to sell...

That being said, it depends on your audience and where you advertise it. I would try on here and places like pistonheads first, then probably eBay.

Get a quote from WBAC and add 2k + what ever you think he mods are worth. That would be where I would start.

Another option is to revert the car back to standard and sell on a more general market like AutoTrader, and then sell the mods separately. Might see a better return that way?

Current: Audi S5 3.0 TFSI Black Ed. (65) - Sepang Blue

Sold: Audi A5 2.0 TFSI Sport (09) - Phantom Black

Agreed with all the above comments when buying a car Alot of people are put off modified cars just because they think they have been ragged about. The car alone at that many miles on a 57 plate I would price around the 7k mark if it had the sat nav spec then you would be looking at 8. People will never pay any extras for Mods I know a mate spent 14k on a car modified it to the brim lost 10k coming to sell it... Crazy

It's not always the case that people won't pay more for modified, but it depends just how tasteful it's all been done.

When I sold my old dog mover (Octavia Vrs) I saw one that was pretty much the same model/spec/miles and even in the same area go for around 800 more and the only difference was it was mapped.

Anyway, what I was going to say was, have a good look on ebay.
If you use the advanced search function, you can look at completed/sold listings and get a good gauge at what people are willing to bid too and also what kind of description seems to attract more views/interest.
