I used to think like this too but it's worth seeing what book price they will give you. I part-ex'd my Golf GTI which had a lot of negatives like broken aircon (600 quoted to fix), damaged boot, scratches, internal damage, and I would struggle to even say it was near "good condition" - it was also imported (saving 4,500 off list). Parkers price for "excellent" condition private sale was 8,500, BMW offered 7,500 and I nearly bit their hand off. Webuyanycar (always a total rip off) quoted 5,500! They don't spend any time looking at it and just pass it on to an auction. Good way to bury an old car with lots of issues
