    That looks unmarked! It should be worth more than 50 really, hopefully it'll attract the right buyer. I see one of those horrible new Micras has managed to sneak into the corner of the picture... how car design has progressed!

      I thought it was one of those Citroen Picasso ugly-mobiles? Either way, you would have to pay alot of money me to even go near a Micra!

      *Back to the original Topic* That Maestro looks absolutely superb. You dont seem to see many early models in that condition!

        Maestro 1.3L

        That is a very nice example of an early Maestro. I hope it goes to an enthusiast, and be taken care of. I understand how few of these there are left now.

          Picasso

          You're right, Richard. That is a Citroen Picasso. I wondered why the car was not in proportion to the Maestro. If you look carefully, you can just see the Picasso sticker on the front wing. :laugh:

              I would sell the Xsara Picasso and keep the Maestro!

                I wouldn't buy a Picasso in the first place, I would buy another Maestro instead. :laugh:

                  Who needs a Picasso when there's 7 seater Montego estates! Ebay never ceases to amaze me with the amount of Maestro/Montego stuff on offer. There must be more unmolested original condition Maestro/Montego's about languishing forgotton in OAP's garages.

                    Its 100 now. I was doing some bidding but it has no MOT. Looks nice though.

                      Looks a bit "too" nice to me!

                      Could the paintwork be new? IE, accident damage?

                        Accident Damage...

                        Hows this for a Maestro that has been rear/front ended?...

                          No rust on the tailgate bottom either! I'd flood the inside with lots of waxoyl while it's still nice ditto with doors.

                            More than likely it's genuine. Seriously, you'd be surprised how many examples sit around in a garage for years doing hardly any work at all with their elderly owners, then when they give up driving there's a low mileage car in A1 condition surplus to requirements and because it's a Maestro, that's not enough to boost its value by much. The lack of an MOT will just be the fact it hasn't been used for months, although as I've discovered this in itself can potentially lead to all sorts of problems.

                            There are bargains to be had, but you're right to be careful.

                              We had a beautiful car with a genuine 9k on it turn up to the BL Rally last year - they are out there!
