Bongo Body Kit Value??

Post by martinc » Thu Jan 24, 2019 9:34 pm

Hi all ,

I sadly had to make a tough decision to sell my body kit, due to the fact that i didnt do my research and find out it wouldnt fit my year of bongo ( 1999 onwards) :(

However i really dont know what the set is worth ? i was hoping that you guys could help me :)

The set includes :

Front Bumper splitter
Side skirts for both sides
Rear Bumper extensions

These parts were freshly painted in silver roughly 6 months ago , and currently in very good condition.

As always any help is appreiated

Problem is any item is worth what someone will pay for it on the day.

An auction site might be your best bet.

Thats what I was thinking, but again I have no idea where to start price wise. It took me a long time to find the set and there can't be many left out but I would rather someone else use it than sat in my garage

You could try it on facebook Bongo groups, subject to their rules on selling. Or maybe try ebay and with a suitable reserve so you dont let it go below a reasonable price. Those kits have been very sought after in the past and are quite rare so i'd hold out for a fair price (i.e. what you paid + something for the paint job work)

I didn't realise there was a Facebook group, I will try there.

What would be a fair price?

Very hard to say but surely it has to be somewhere north of £100?

What did you pay? That would be a ball park figure good place to start. You have a nice classified advert right here. As the chaps said whatever someone is willing to pay, stick it on eBay you may make even more than the last one you saw for sale on there.
