Re: Buying 166. Question 5 speed or 6 speed
I only have a budget of up to £2500. I have just got back from looking at a 51 TS with 101,000 miles on the clock and they want £2495 for it and that i think is too much, it is in Sheffield though. It has a complete history but was registered after march 01, so it makes it seem expensive compared to the 01 TS in Glasgow with 73K at £1500 and that was registered Jan 01. That is why the tax is important. If it was the right car I would be happy to pay it. I notice on Autotrader there is an 04 pre facelift at £2600 but has 110k. So im not sure what to do. My Ti was of course superior to my first 166 and yes I will notice a difference, but Im extremely excited to be getting a 166 again. I dont mean that a cheaper, older 166 is as good as FL, but it's stil a 166 and if I can get a silver car with black leather I will be well happy and I can wave my mondeo goodbye. May miss the sixth gear though.
