A garage lost our fully stamped service book, what difference does this make to the value of the car?

My son's 2012 Volkswagen Scirocco was recently serviced by our local autocentre, which lost the fully stamped service book. We are dealing with it through the head office. But we're wondering what difference the loss is likely to make to the value of the car?

Give them the choice of buying the car from you for the full trade value or compensating your son £1000 which is the value of the lost service history. For the latest Volkswagen Scirocco pricing, see: www.honestjohn.co.uk/used-prices/Volkswagen/Sciroc...2
