    Did you take the photos on a airfield.
    Price is subjective as mainly what one willing to pay. Would you buy at the price.have you tried the trade companies and if so what did they offer.
    I would keep hold and look after till near autumn or winter. If someone willing enough this would be the best time.

    I really like 110s, have done since I was a kid, but I couldn't dream of paying 33 grand for one.

    Asking prices don't always reflect achieved prices. Or even if the vehicles sell at all. Sometimes you see them advertised for years.
    You don't say how old the vehicle is, or what engine it has?
    But I wouldn't pay anything like that for any Defender.

    Fair enough, now edited it. Still think it is stupid money. You could buy a pretty decent brand new car for that.

    As above, you can't go by asking prices when you're trying to sell somthing.

    If my brother has an apple advertised for £20, doesn't mean I'll be able to sell one for a tenner.

    Look at eBay's completed (sold) listings to get an idea of what things actually sell for.

    You mentioned you had recently purchased it. I'm not going to ask what you paid, but my feeling is that it wasn't close to £33k...

    Dont forget the big prices will be dealers with warranties/premises/employees etc etc.
    Plus once you get into serious money people are rightly nervous about handing over that sort of dough with no potential comeback.
    Iirc dealers have to offer a 6 mth warranty by law, ie fit for purpose.

    WBAC offer a free valuation quick as you like to your email address, and to be fair to them they dont keep sending annoying emails day after day, week after week, few days and you will be forgotten.

    Definitely look at eBay, autotrader and LRO classifieds for an idea of what similar vehicles will make. For a private sale, reduce what you ask in comparison to traders. And be prepared to be messed around, have hagglers and chancers and the like. You will also have to be prepared to take less than you expect in order to sell it. And whilst you’ve got it, keep it secure. Tdci landies in particular are very popular with thieves.

    There's a lot of stuff on eBay with silly prices that never sell. I'm sure it's to make 'real' listings look cheap

    33 grand is same price for a same age same milage disco 4. I'd give you 16 pounds and at least two packs of doritios of a flavor that you quite like but isn't your favorite but you deliver. Others here will offer you half a curly wurly but they are just chances.

    I'm a member of a couple of LR groups and many, many people are putting their vehicles up for sale now due to fuel prices. I think the market has already peaked and historically 110s have always been cheaper than 90s second hand anyway as there's not so much demand. I think you are way over priced. Ebay is not a reliable indicator as so many of the ads on there are fake. Have a look on LRO to see what current asking prices are like and as others have said remember they are just asking prices.

    I think I would be taking their hand off at that price, lets be honest theres always haggle room, and 33k minus say 10 percent aint far of the wbac price, even if they tweak you down a bit thats still money in your bank.
    History is not main issue with defenders like say other expensive cars, it is all about condition.
