Seems a lot of cars about quite cheap at the moment. Or not so cheap and not selling. I paid 2k a few months ago for mine, seemed cheap for the high spec but maybe not considering I have spent 1k so far on s/s exhausts, timing belts, waterpump, clutch slave, a/c recharge, thermostat,and a good service. It does seem its like putting double glazing in your house. It doesn't really affect the sale price greatly just affects the saleability.
That said I guess For 3K I have a good car that should be good for the next few years at least, apart from oil changes.
