La Centrale has "la Cote de L'Occasion" whereas ArgusAuto has "La Cote Officielle".  You'll find La Centrale will quote 10%-15% higher than Argus because Argus is typically trade (professionel), whereas La Centrale is private (particulier).  La Centrale quotes are free, Argus is more reliable and is a pay service.  If you are using Argus, profit from the fact that 3 quotes cost no more than one - so if you are a buyer, "bracket your quotes" to give you some idea of priice flexibility - e.g. change the age, add options, etc. for 2 of the quotes.

Good links, Legend, thanks.

Is there a French equivalent of the Glass's and What Car pricing guides?  In England you can use something like


to get the Glass's valuation for a car.  Is there an equivalent in France?  I've looked through your links quickly and can't find anything similar, but maybe I've missed it.

I presume that you mean in French or France?  Here, from my personal shortcuts... some are much more reliable than others.  Some are free, others must be paid for to receive premium service...
