The only place for a coil spring is up Zebedee's arse

I'm going to be selling one of my 2002 Alveston Red Vogue SE's but am unsure of the value or what to ask for the car. I see late cars advertised for a lot of money but don't know if it's realistic pricing of if they're selling for that sort of money.

Mechanically, this car is superb. It runs beautifully, doesn't use a drop of water or oil, and runs beautifully on LPG after Simon set it up properly. For a 19 year old car with 119k on the clock, the bodywork is in great shape and has an amazing shine bar a few marks here and there. I'm likely going to get the bulge on the rear bumper sorted out before I advertise it properly too.

Anyway, mechanically she's had a ton of work done in the 4 years I've had her, the list as far as I can remember (probably a few things missed) is below:

4 Air springs
Compressor Refurb
Valve Block Refurb
Air Suspension Relay
PAS Pipe
Full service kit x 3
LPG Reducer
Plug Leads (Magnecor KV85)
Aux Belt
Both Aux Belt Idlers & Tensioner
Coolant Pipes for throttle body and radiator return
Heater Matrix O Rings
Tailgate Struts
Bonnet Struts
ABS Accumulator
HEVAC Repair Ribbon & Bulbs
Wipers
Headlight Wipers
Air Con Condenser
Air Con Drier
Air Con Recharge
Radius arm bushes
Panhard rod bushes front and rear
Steering Damper
Drop Links
Anti Roll Bar bushes
Exhaust - Cats, Centre section and back boxes
Rear axle oil seals
Rear pads due to oil contamination
Rear callipers cleaned and painted
Front and Rear diff oil
New Rubber Mats
Transfer Box Oil
Both gearbox oil cooler pipes
Gearbox Oil Cooler
Genuine LR gearbox filter
Both air con pipes that run along the bulkhead
Plenum Foam on scuttle panel
3 Air Con Pipes under bonnet
Scuttle Panel Plenum Foam
Steering Box Input Shaft
Steering Box
BECM Repair to resolve central locking issues
Track Rod
Drag Link
2 Lambda Sensors (Bosch)
Replacement Amplifier
2 New Subwoofer Speakers fitted to original Enclosure
Grill and headlight trims painted
Tow bar removed, blasted and repainted
4 new Dunlop EAS height sensors
2 new front height sensor heat shields
Tow bar converted to full 13 pin electrics inc split charge
Tracking
Air Con Recharge
Half Leather/Half Wood Steering Wheel
4 new Michelin Cross Climate SUV tyres (done less then 2000 miles)

Pictures of her are here:

Would appreciate any thoughts on value too as I'm not really sure where to place her.

Thanks,
David.

I intend putting the 2001 Vogue that I bought a half share of with a mate on up for sale on Car & Classic which seems to be the place for anything decent. There's a couple of ones on at the moment to give you a clue https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1316847 which is nothing special and https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1309255. Or put it in one of their auctions and give the full history and loads of pictures like this https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/auctions/1976-mercedes-benz-2304-ZgOxpn with a sensible reserve.

Decent late Vogue and VSE models are going for £5000 and up.

There was a VSE the exact same as yours that sold for 8k I believe, so yeah..

values aren't what they once were!

Go top price (and be willing to negotiate). The condition warrants it!
Is easy to under-sale or give away the fruit of your efforts and you'll never get that back ... don't make a present to the next guy! Make it worth!

If you're not in a rush, ask 9 and get 6-8. Nice looking car...

Trouble is with Vogue's ---- which ones are real ---- 2000 onwards chrome badge ---- buy on eBay for few quid ----- my 99 Vogue' se badge is made from greyish colour letters ----- so unless you really now what to look for 🙄

It’s easy enough to check the logbook to see which ones are real.

There’s apps on your phone that will show you what model they are after entering the registration number. Both of mine show as “Vogue SE” when looking them up.

Right, I’m getting some serious grief about the number of cars I have sat around at the moment so this needs to go. I’m going to be washing it and trying to get some pictures of it at the weekend. I’m not going to have time to get the rear bumper sorted so will be prepared to negotiate on that accordingly.

If anyone wants a cracking, sorted P38, give me a shout :) I’d love it to go to an enthusiast home.

When you look at p38s for sale some are roughly £1300 average yet some are advertised at £8000 ---- can't understand why as they're going up slowly in value but people only keep on about air suspension or overheating on V8s so can't see them going up silly like classic has ---- Original Discovery 1 going up faster

If you P38 experts can't tell the difference between a real Vogue etc and a normal P38, why would anyone pay so much more for a real one? Why wouldn't a buyer rather save maybe 50%(?) on the buy price and stick a Vogue badge on the back? Even if they buy a real one, if they come to sell it other buyers might think it a potential fake?

A Disco 1 rots so quickly soon they will be completely extinct so the few that remain will go up in value purely on rarity (although having used one from brand new in 1993 until it was pensioned off at 10 years old, I can't understand why anyone would want one).

It isn't so much the Vogue that fetches good money, it's cars that have been looked after. A Vogue is not much higher specced than an HSE, just it came with everything as standard rather than almost everything and many buyers added the bits it didn't have as options. The only one that is really different is the Vogue SE which came with everything.

There's dogs of P38s about that have been abused and neglected (the only reason a V8 will overheat) and then there's ones that have been looked after and are worth good money. This one, a Jap import, on coil springs (and sitting too high so will likely handle like a blancmange), the book showing on the HEVAC, peeling aftermarket stick on plastic wood and nothing really special, didn't reach the reserve https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/auctions/2000-p38-range-rover-46-hse-w8evOg? but still reached a good price.
