I doubt it wil make any difference. When it comes to Extras when buying, the Dealers go on about how much they are worth. Selling time, they are totally ignored
When I have sold my vehicles in the last few years it has been Bank Transfer using the "Faster Payment" system. It always seems to work within minutes and you can just check on line or call the bank to confirm receipt. The only thing to watch for is if payment goes over a certain figure it reverts to the old slow system so you may need to take two payments if total over that figure to avoid it happening. (with me, it was over £10,000 a couple of years ago)
If you do end up part exchanging, remove any 'extras' like the additional wheel, side steps etc and sell separately. As Hoovie says, you will get no consideration from a dealer for anything you have added.
I think selling private would be better. I helped sell my sisters car last week privately and my first time too. The lady did a bank transfer money was there straightaway and she got just under a grand more than what she was quoted at Toyota

Is it too limited a catchment of people to advertise on here ? Feel safer among fellow enthusiasts. Might give it a bash over the next few days.
Thanks for all the advice .
Although the forum may not appear wildly busy in terms of postings, we do get a lot of guests just browsing and reading posts and checking info (around 50,000 views a month) so you may be surprised. As an example, I use a VW Forum for my Campervan stuff. When I sold two camper conversions on there, one in 2016, one in 2017, both went to people who had no posts and were on the forum looking for campers.
Also, the forum is 'crawled' by the search engines so anyone doing a search for a RAV4 to buy will find it here as well (so if you post a For Sale here, use some terms and phrases that people are likely to search for).
