The 4 cats off a V6 alone are worth double that if original and good  ::)
on-line scrap car buying sites would better 200
have you offered it for sale on OOF ? or parts ?
that's also assuming it's beyond repair  :-\

No doubt giving the wrong post code was sensible thing to do, as some guy keeps messaging me asking for more details, at 206,000k not sure cats would be any good, mot expired, lot of tin worm, have been tempted by offer of mot certificate as still fully insured, and carry out works in stages but I think Im being sentimental rather than realistic.
and my eyes are steering towards Insignia estate Sri Vx Line nav. Shame about sump engine killing oil pick up seal though.

I got mine done by a guy in Bradford for around 400.
