    Which way is better to sell a D4?

    Gday groovers .. thinking about offloading my 2016 D4 TDV6

    Hereís the question - should I sell as-is with all the kit it has installed (eg rhino platform and awning, LED spots, full APT underbody bash plates & rock sliders, UHF, LLAMS, Traxide DBMS with Optima Aux battery, and Redarc brake controller) or remove the lot before selling

    What would be more appealing to a prospective buyer?

    (Noting Iíll need to find some sill trim to fill the gap when the rock sliders get removed and plug a couple of holes in the dash with trim plugs /grommets)

    Opinions please

    It has a new battery and brakes so it kinda pains me to sell, but SWMBO said we need to downsize ...

    I'd go with a detailed and very well written ad on carsales and gumtree to appeal to the right buyer. they are out there. Include detailed maintenance.

    My D2 was fully kitted our. I probably didnít get what it was fully worth when it sold, but it got lots of attention. When we bought the d4 we were after pretty much what youíre selling. Iíd sell it complete personally.

    No selling is allowed in the main forum areas.
    Please don't cross that line or the whole thread will have to go.
    Stick to opinions on selling with/without accessories for D4s

    Is the downsize going to be a smaller/less expensive 4WD or you getting out of the game completely? Reason I ask is that if you plan another build now or later, retuning the vehicle to near standard and keeping the bits for another build might make sense.

    Or selling the bits to those of us who are building their car would also make sense. When I sold my d2 I made the decision to sell it complete. I donít know if the price would have changed with less accessories or not. The list of stuff youíd like to take off is pretty much what Iím looking at putting on tho!

    Personally Iíd be very put off by a vehicle with plugs covering holes from previous modifications. For the same price Iíd definitely find one without that.
    Would much rather the additional accessory was still there. The fact itís missing makes me wonder why - is the owner trying to pretend the vehicle never did any work meanwhile the evidence of it (such as a trailer brake controller) having been there indicates otherwise.

    At the end of the day modifications rarely add much value to a vehicle. You likely knew that going in, so why be concerned about it now?

    Theres also the time factor - removing them, covering it up, seperate sales to sell them, etc.

    Agree with selling as is and making a feature of it being "expedition ready" or however you want to phrase it. Perhaps price it a little higher than comparatively aged/mileage vehicles to give you some wriggle room.
