Hey guys.

Might be selling the Imola Avant as I need to start saving the pennies for our house extension ; (

Might get something sensible such as a Golf R estate ; )

What kind of money is this thing worth do you reckon? Nearly 58k miles, FSH (dealer stamps). New clutch last 5k/ carbon clean last 5k/ new front discs and pads last 5k, 10 owners (however have heard this is common on these).

I've got around 3.5k in receipts since I got it back at the end of July 17, so just gone 10 months.

Just testing the waters ; )

10 owners! That's about one a year. How long have you had it?
No matter where you go, there you are.

Nearly a year!! ; )
From what I hear, that's not unheard of for these beasts!

Who have you heard that from? Besides, almost anything can be 'not unheard of', I'm not really sure what you're saying there?!
I'd say that's a high owner count, now I've said that, does that mean you're now going to start quoting me?

10 owners is silly high and will put many off

I'd also say it's a high owner count, but also not unheard of. Spoken to a few garages regarding this, and they've all mentioned it can be common.

People buy these things, then realise how expensive they are to run/maintain, then get rid.

The fact it's an imola will either help or hinder resale. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

There is a theory that the car gets treated well as soon as you purchase it, as you have done, detailed, brakes etc.

If this has happened ten times then bingo! It doesn't matter how many owners it's had.

Imola is stunning but an acquired taste, or so I've heard.
