hey it would be interesting to seewhat they offered you in compared to what you paid for it,,
mine has a factory fitted rear opening window and i love it!!!!
They didn't offer anything because we're not interested in selling it. Its far too useful and we'd only have to go out and get something else instead. When you consider the alternatives, nothing comes close in terms of value.
At the time we bought it, for similar money we could have had a 3-year old S-Max or Grand Picasso type thing. No contest! Then again, for a bit more than half the money we could have had a new Berlingo First. I think at the time the total price was about £13k, plus they gave us an excellent deal on our knackered Subaru - almost twice what we'd paid for it in the first place. Obviously, once we've paid it off, we'll end up paying more. But that's how these things work.
Looking at auto trader, without the extra seats it looks like we'd be able to get around £9k now. If there is the demand implied, then I'd guess that £10k shouldn't be out of the question. £3-4k depreciation in 2 years isn't too bad. Especially considering the final value in a years time is about £4.5k.
We love the opening window too. Do you find if you've not opened it for a while it tends to stick to the seals? I can see that being a problem as the rubber gets older. Maybe a bit of silicon spray might help?
