Sorry OP but around the lines but did anyone else see the private 1.5 turbo cab for sale in green on autotrader a few months back, it had pccb's if that jogs anyone's memories? I'd really like to hear some thoughts on what its value is, as a coupe it could of been up there as colour and spec were rare but as a cab with 50k I couldn't put my finger on it.

I would be taking a close look at the Dovehouse car. Nice spec, service history and dealer gets good rep. Looks decent value too.

That old chestnut again. Normally spouted by the sellers of high mileage cars!

I've never had any 'standing' issues with any of my 'low miles' cars over the last 30 years or so.

You should read Mezgerite's posts. Seems to know what he's on about.

Dovehouse have just got a black one back in stock. They sold it earlier in the year so it looks like that buyer only had it for the summer months. Its a very early 2006 one, but a good spec.


Cheers for that - I've spotted that one and is a contender. Thumb


I saw this one advertised over the weekend and it caught my eye. Its almost identical spec & millage to mine (except mine has the PCCB's and a few other irrelevant bits) when I bought it from a local INDY 2 years ago.

I paid £10k less than this one is now advertised at Dove House! If I had parked mine in the garage I could have made a few quid. Thankfully I didn't, I've changed the suspension and the exhaust along with a few other bits and spend a fantastic 18k miles behind the wheel on high days and holidays. If I'm lucky its still worth what I paid for it as it stands, which I think is a real result.

I can vouch for Dove House, they have maintained my car for the last 12 months and they are honest, knowledgeable and efficient. They have earned their accolades. If I was you, I would get over to Dove House ASAP and get a deposit on that car before its sold.

For clarity, I have absolutely no affiliation with Dove House.

Agree, I think the Dove house car is fairly priced, I don't like the carbon but it can be changed easy but I do love the red stitching!!! thumbsup

Sorry about all the photo's but I really like it!

I'm not a fan of either, mine had carbon bits and pieces and although I still have them, I changed them for my liking. The hard Carbon door pockets where the worst where you rested your elbow, might as well be resting on concrete.

What is the appeal with the stitching? once you shut the door, its just odd colored stitching in a black interior?

I do get thats its different though, and some love that, so just ignore me Thumb

Thanks for all the info Gents, really useful. I've had some good PMs but nothing firm yet. The Dove House car at £56,800 is a close call - just a tad above my budget and ideally I'm looking @45k mls.
As you all know it's a big purchase and I want it to be right (don't we all!!) so I'll be patient for a little while longer

Hopefully this should be the right time of year for cars coming to the market. Ill keep you posted



Thumb

Cheers

Door pockets in mine are leather so very comfy.

I find the black interiors of most German cars quite austere, the yellow in the stitching, instrument cluster and seat belts complimented with the carbon seems to add a bit of fun. Like what they have done in the 918.

Each to their own I suppose.

Depends on how long you are prepared to wait I found. I spent 9 months waiting/looking and watching cars being snapped up within days of being advertised. All the time the prices went up & up before I finally decided enough was enough and snapped mine up within hours of it being advertised. It wasnt the exact spec I wanted, and had higher miles than I wanted, but had I not bought it I would probably have still been looking now. As it turned out ive had 18 months & 20k miles of fun in mine and its probably near enough kept its value.
