***How Much Is My Car Worth?***

Discussion in 'Megane Discussion' started by Naith, Jul 15, 2013.

  1. I've been told by loads of people to hang on to my R26 and not sell as they will go up in price especially Average /low miles and good condition in right colour(Liquid yellow or white) and not to far from original spec or easy to put back to standard if wanted.
    I think we will see R26 prices rocket over the next 5 years .Autocar article eluded to this as the one to buy along with its track brother the R26R .
    £8k for a mint R26 will seem cheap in 5 years .
  2. R26


    I'm not sure about rocket, good ones will always command a premium, the more that are written off the better your prospects. One thing that would cause me to question your theory is we have a plethora of hot hatches around, very good ones that have moved on from the R26, these will soon become very cheap. The R26r's prospects will be helped by the limited numbers, the R26 although numbered, were never limited. Obviously it's your money your car, if I were to keep a car mint in the hope it will appreciate, it would be something that is limited or mental, ie the V6.

    Can't see it, based on my experience of virtually zero interest when trying to sell mine. Folk have moved onto the newer models, and whilst a mint one with the right mods might get a good price if right buyer's in place, for the majority I don't think there's hope of getting much more than trade-in value for these cars.

  4. I'd echo the above. I've been looking for a couple of months for an R26 and very few cars have sold. It's not helped by there not being many on sale so often good ones are a long long way away. The R26R will hold and increase its value but only R26 models with low miles and perfect history are likely to see any meaningful gains. Even then they will be smallish.
  5. I have a Megane 225 cup 55plate , red,immaculate condition, full service history, 58k miles, cambelt and clutch changed less than a 1000 miles.whats it worth?
  6. I recently (6 weeks ago) purchased a stock 225 f1 with 89k on the clock. Good condition with a years ticket and I paid £2500. Sadly, mods don't add a great deal of value to the car, but I would think 3k would be reasonable with a fair wind behind you. Let's be honest, what else can you buy with that performance for such little money. I used to own an 8v Delta Integralle, 4 wheel drive but similar performance etc. 1989 good nick with history....it's now up for £16k !!!

  9. Sounds a great spec. As for pricing, I'm just a novice but from experience , you get a minimal return on non stock items that are added to a car, unless, the buyer is specifically after your spec. For me, it's an r26 with highish mileage. Granted, its probably pretty rapid, but who under 35 can get insured on it if they declare all the mods. Im 57 and my standard ( at present) 225 f1 costs me £295 fully comp protected ncd per annum.
  10. Hi all. After a bit of help. Hunting for a 250/265, and I’m struggling to work out what’s overpriced and what is fair etc.

    What would the following be worth? white 265 on 62 plate, cup pack, leather recaros, sat nav, 60k miles, RST map to 310/340, 18 inch alloys, recent cambelt, pro alloy IC, decat..

  11. 11k maybe
  12. Hi, just trying to work out what my megane is worth. 2011 RS 250, remapped to around 300bhp, powerflow cat back exhaust, the rest is standard, new discs and pads all round 10k miles ago, Black, 19" Steev's in good condition (not perfect), Black leather recaros, full service history, new Michelin Ps4's all round, belts done in 2018. Overall great condition, no scratches/dents, brand new RS mats, upgraded sony bluetooth stereo..

  15. CUP chassis?
  16. Yep cup chassis
  17. I would say realistically £10k-£11k.
  18. Was going to say around 10
  19. Hi all!,

    Unfortunately my beloved R26 has started puffing blue smoke. After 148k miles and 10 years of ownership. Suppose I've had my moneys worth!.

    I don't think getting the engine repaired is an option for me. I pulled the spark plugs, cylinder 4 has a nice oily spark plug so I suspect rings or valve oil seals. Smokes when accelerating after going down long hills on overrun.

    Just wondering what it might be worth to someone who wants a project.

    Its a 2007 Liquid Yellow Megane R26.

    Mileage 148k
    MOT until November
    Stage 1 RStuner mapped
    Ktec 3" exhaust and decat
    Forge Recirc Valve
    Forge hard pipe kit
    Recently had two new rear calipers
    Masses of receipts for oil changes etc.

    Overall in excellent condition for the age. Paintwork/bodywork is excellent. Small tears in drivers side Recaro.

    This car is too good to scrap in my eyes.

    Whats it worth?
