We used to be a two-car household, but COVID has changed that as we both now are working from home. We’ve come to the point where we’re satisfied we could easily get along with just the one car and we’ve made a decision to sell our second car privately.
But how do we do that? We tried selling a car 10 years ago by placing an ad, but all we got was two replies, one really abusive and the other we quickly realised was a scammer. So what options for privately selling are there?

I have a 171 BMW X1 18d xLine manual, with about 90k on the clock. It’s in good condition, no known faults/issues, full main dealer BMW service history, sunroof and metallic paint. If I was to trade in with the same dealer I bought it from and service it with, against a BMW i4, what trade in value should I be aiming for?

I want to sell my 2013 Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 TSI GT DSG with 48,000 miles on the clock. Volkswagen offered me €10,500, but obviously it’s worth more than that to a private seller. Imported from UK and I need to sell for best price as the money will go towards my next car. I’m looking to find out how much it’s worth so I’m not under-selling - I’d rather overprice it. Ideally wouldn’t sell private as I’ve had a nightmare in the past with idiots trying to rip me off.

My 2006 Audi A3 petrol has failed its NCT on emissions and my mechanic said it will need a new engine to fix the problem. Will I be able to trade it in anywhere? It's a great car in good condition; would be a shame to scrap it.

Want to get rid of a 99 Mitsubishi Colt 1.3 (bit of cosmetic damage on the side but driving really well). Any idea how much I should ask for it?

I have been looking at buying a 2011 model Ford Focus Zetec S 1.6 TDCi. The mileage on it is sitting quite high I think at 90,000. What questions should I ask the dealership before I decide if I'm to buy it or not? The price is €4,000; is this ok?
