As there's no "What's it Worth?" section any more, I thought I'd post in General. I'm tentatively thinking of selling my Ph.1 gti6 on 67k miles, which I have owned since 2013. The only reason is not really having the time to use it much what with my other vehicle projects and renovating a house- I'd be very sad to see it go.

It does unfortunately have lacquer peel as do all diablos, but the interior is in good condition. The interior also has an OMP steering wheel with matching red stripe, and red seatbelts from a Roland Garros to also match the exterior colour. The Exterior has small modifications like a rallye stripe on the grille, high quality pressed plates and rare Cibie fog lamp covers. I've also got a genuine Peugeot roof rack and I believe also headlamp covers somewhere.

What really makes this car stand out is the mechanical condition. Suspension-wise, everything is has been replaced with new in my ownership except the front wheel bearings, including Koni Yellows all round with Eibach springs (new top mounts, spring cups, bump stops etc. when building them), genuine wishbones with genuine partner P-bushes, Jord/Andy rebuilt rear axle with genuine parts and VTS torsion bars on new beam mounts, Wilwood calipers up front with braided lines, custom-made exhaust centre with no silencer all mandrel bent and a choice of backboxes.

It's currently on TD Pro Race 3s with Yokohama AD08r tyres, these along with the very well-sorted suspension make it a pleasure to drive.

It does need a couple of bits sorting, but I plan to do this before the sale (service, cambelt change, new thermostat housing elbow and gasket, manifold or cat slightly blowing etc.) and these are all on my list to sort soonish to keep enjoying the vehicle if I'm keeping it.

Hopefully the images below work. I'd only really want to sell for the right money but I'm unsure how to value this as it is relatively rare & low miles, and very well sorted but the paint does let it down. I've got a MASSIVE folder of receipts etc. that are all me and I dare not add it all up! Any thoughts on value, or anyone potentially interested?

No rust on the roof, it's a sunroof model and the 23 year old sunroof works just fine. There is lacquer peel on the roof though.

Honestly not sure how to value it.

I did think about that, but surely lacquer peel sorting will cost quite a bit. Maybe it's worth getting some quotes from a bodyshop.

I've still got OEM interior parts like the original seatbelts, I suppose I could get it back on cyclones and sell off some of the modified parts like the strut brace, wheels & tyres (or use them on my track car), seatbelts, flocked dash parts, extra backbox etc. and even without lacquer peel sorted it's at least close to OEM spec. Maybe even buy some calipers and put standard brakes back on.

Thanks for the input. Anyone else have any thoughts?

This went through an MOT today and is now for sale.

The only advisory was some wear on the inner edge of a rear tyre- I fit a set of cyclones and put Uniroyal RS3s on the front and hadn't gotten around to putting them on the rear. I could do so as part of a deal if required.

It also has had a cambelt change with a Dayco kit and Valeo waterpump, along with a Valeo thermostat and new from Peugeot thermostat plastic elbow and seal, then refilled with fresh coolant. It has also had an oil change with Total Quartz 9000 and a genuine filter.

The red seatbelts have also been removed, as have the fog lamp covers and wilwood brakes.

I'll happily have a reasonable discussion about price with an interested party but I'll ask for £4,250 at this stage and see what interest comes my way.
