You'd be better putting this is the GTA lounge.

Great colour combination and mileage. New budget Yoko tyres - it wouldn't have been much more dosh to put MPS or RE050 or other top of the line tyres on.

The ad is long on listing the standard and optional features that most GTAs have but short on the actual condition of the car as well as maintenance.

Exact condition of wheels not known - should be ok at 9k miles but then again..
Need pic of driver's seat where the leather wears - lard ar5sed drivers especially bad for these seats.
Check for finger nail scratches on the driver's seat leather from grabbing the handbrake - female drivers a problem here. Ditto the driver's door card at the grab handle and both external door handles.

What about cam belt/idlers/tensioners? No mention but many would now argue it's overdue even if not scheduled yet.

No Q2. It's only a matter of time IMO before it takes the gearbox with it.

This is way too much money for this car, despite it's apparent lack of miles and use. You'll spend around 1500 for Q2 and belts at Autolusso, so all other things being equal and good, not a penny over 10k should be on the table, I reckon

I wonder is the mileage genuine? You really need to have invoices from the main dealers to prove the mileage, prior to its first MOT.

I wouldn't pay any more for this one than I would for one in similar condition with 40k miles, not being used very often does them no favours whatsoever.

Ok, cheers guys!

I actually know the chap selling it, a local businessmans son, so it'll be tip top and no expense spared, thought the price was over the odds though.

I like the colour

The market will decide if it too expensive, if it sells then it not too expensive
