Unfortunately Steve the coupe market in the UK is crap,
I know that car it belongs to a forum member, it's even better in the flesh.
But everyone in the UK want's to pay peanuts.
I know I sold my two in August.
The other problem is it's a 2.0ltr not a V6.

That's pretty general though, I always bought old cars for peanuts while I lived in the UK but in Croatia cars are far more expensive, only reaching bangernomics prices after 15-20 years. And then that's only briefly as they then become "old timers" and the value starts increasing again :roll:

Also, while most depreciation happens in the first 3 years in the UK, here vehicles start out more expensive and gradually go down in value, so at around 3 years the value drops down to what a new car costs in the UK :frown:

Cars are cheaper in Germany and it's possible to import them if they're not too old but, after you've paid the import duty and jumped through all the stupid hoops, it's hardly worth the effort.

No pictures with this one ( :roll: ) but a 2 door 406? What could that possibly be? It seems to have dropped a couple of horsepower...

The all important cam belt was done at 43000 miles too so it isn’t due one for quite a while yet.
How long ago was that tho? :?
