In my opinion, car is worth around 10k being an early car (pre-facelift) and only the spec gives it that price. Unfortunately it will only achieve that price for someone who knows about these cars and is looking for a good one, although the lack of flap removal is a negative as the new owner will have to budget for it soon.

Prices seem to be a bit stable at the moment (looking on AT), maybe even up slightly. The dilemma is that letting it go for <10k is throwing it away as it is worth more to you. Plus, you can't really replace it with anything for the same money. I would put it up for something like 10,750 and see if you get any bites

Good luck with the sale.

One thing I would comment on is to me the aftermarket wheels may restrict the potential market.

For the odd buyer they will be perfect, but the majority of buyers would want original if possible.

It may sell better with them on.

I agree with this. The guy that wants to pay a premium for a low mileage example of a classic, doesn't necessarily want the wrong wheels, modified exhaust, aftermarket rear seat entertainment and probably not the flat bottom wheel either....

You're looking for a very niche buyer with this sale imo, which means it will need to be cheap or you will need to be very patient.

I have the original wheels and steering wheel if thats a deal breaker, Id happily put it back to standard and the exhaust is as factory as I could get it to look without the restrictiveness of factory

It would definitely make it a more attractive proposition to anyone whose contemplating buying one as the "original look" is what makes them so appealing, alongside the V10 of course. You would get some return on the wheels and steering wheel by selling them separately as they'd fit multiple cars and you won't be left with S8 wheels and the standard steering wheel that will have limited appeal.

That's the way I'd see it, good luck with the sale
