My Elise is up for sale, and while originally planning to buy another Lotus, I've decided to push the budget slightly and try and get into a 4C.
However, I'm on a pretty strict £35k max. There are a few cars at dealers for this price, but they seem to be all over the place. I'm struggling to match up age/mileage/spec against price...especially as spec wise there isn't a great deal of difference. For example, on AT there are various cars for £35k, with mileage ranging from 1,700 right upto 20,000 for the same year...but why?
I'm assuming the LE has the greatest premium. Past that, I'm guessing Tri-Coat Rosso Red carries a premium, followed by Flat Red, then white, with grey/black being the least desirable? Again, the classic 5-hole 18/19's being the most desired, over the smaller 17/18's.
Otherwise, I can't see anything else there that would dramatically affect pricing, except for the ones that don't have parking sensors which I'll be avoiding completely.
Anyone car to offer any tips as I'll be essentially buying at the bottom of the market? As an aside, I do prefer to buy privately, so if anyone is selling soon (i'll hopefully be looking to purchase in the next 4 weeks) or knows of anyone looking to sell, let me know!
