I have had this car for just over a couple of years. Bought totally standard and replaced a lot of parts to make it a nice quick mile muncher (just passed 135K miles). I find I just spend too much time fiddling with it constantly and I really want to focus on fixing up my house. Don't have anywhere to store the car sadly and I really don't know what to price this at.
Below are the parts I've fitted that I can remember:
300HK chipped ECU 16T angled flange turbo Ferrita 3" down pipe with 100 cel cat Ferrita 2.5" cat back exhaust 850R clutch TTV "lite" flywheel Quaife ATB differential DO88 large intercooler D088 hoses Radiator 5x 16" steels with Pilot Sports (less than a month old) 2x new driveshafts new tie rods new drop links All new standard suspension components apart from Eibach springs 4x new wheel bearings Timing kit Brakes PCV system Coil GROM BT unit
Passed it's MOT yesterday with one advisory relating to a distorted light pattern from a headlight.
There's a post on VOC forum at the moment where a couple of the lads who've been around 850s a while talk about the value of a standard manual T5 on a for sale post. It's here if you want to have a look:
Beyond that, it's about whether you can find someone who wants your mods. Generally - as you know - mods will lower the market value but its a semi specialist car and you seem to have addressed a few of the obvious T5 concerns (clutch and flywheel/ pcv system etc) so that's all good.

Thanks for the link Jem45, it confirms what I was thinking, so £2k-£4k.
The modifications hopefully won't put people off as there is nothing too crazy about it, although most people probably wan't something with a higher spec from factory. Leather, A/C and all that business.
A more heavily modified one has just popped up on ebay for £6k.
