2016 Golf R low mileage what is a fair sell price?

Hello redflaggers,

So I finally decided to sell my 2016 Golf R DSG Tech in Lapiz blue

The car is a garage queen and does not get driven often, hence why it only has around 15k km. I am the only owner since new. The car is in like new condition. Rarely driven in winter, eventhough I have full set of winter wheels/tires. Fully tinted and has vw all weather mats and trunk liner. No mods since day one, as stock as it gets.

Wondering what would you RFD experts think is a fair price for me and the buyer? Already searched for similar condition, but few to none with this kind of mileage/condition. Not in a rush to sell, but would like to sell before winter so I can give garage space to my other car.

Is autotrader, kijjiji, vw forums best bets to sell?

$34,500.

you can sell the winter set on your own. If included in the deal, then you can ask $$36,000

LOL. I wouldn't even sell a gti for that, let alone R. Car is 50k+ new. Nice try)

Thanks. I was thinking 37,500. Based on what I say on autotrader that seems fair.

You can go with that and see how it goes. post it over at different vw forums and get more wider audience there.

I'd compare it to the resale of the sti. I'd ask for $39k in that condition, but that's just me.

That would be ideal. Thanks for the tip

Once the MY2019 landed, then some potential buyers will consider your car as 3 years old.

I think 37k list would be fair. Actual selling price, I would have no clue. That's a lot of cash to drop at once.

IMO, the difficulty with non-CPO used cars is the lack of access to cheap financing for the buyer -- hence, CPO's garnering a premium.

Banks typically would have a better rate than most used car lots. HELOC, or even just personal loans. Many banks also offer auto loads starting around 2.99%. OP shouldn't have any issues getting top dollar for the car. Beautiful colour, clean, no mods and low mileage. There's lot of sti that are in 3 year, 60000kms and still looking for $38000. The car is just limited to the group of people that want or desire this car. That's the only draw back. You're not getting some teenager or mid 20s folk looking for this type of car unless they have money already so that demographic is already subtracted from the general populace. If I'm searching for these cars, I have cash to burn.
