GTV Cup

Just been offered a 02 Cup for £7000 (not 100% sure of the deal yet but he's gonna see what he can do). He wasn't sure of the mileage but thinks it's around 90k. Has fsh, new brake discs and pads all round, MAF has been replaced etc etc. Does it sound a good deal? Do you reckon it will hold it's value well?

Cup owners tell me all about them please

GTV Cup No.72

Re: GTV Cup

Seems pretty high mileage. When were the belts last done?

Price seems roughly right though. I payed 8k a year ago for a 52 plate with 53k on the clock.

Tell you about them? Drop dead gorgeous, sounds like heaven, goes like stink, drinks like a fish. Don't buy if you don't like being stared at

Re: GTV Cup

Cambelt done recently?

Remember being an 02 plate its value may be likely to fall given the astronomical cost of road tax next year

Re: GTV Cup

I think the main reason for getting a cup is that they hold their value well as mentioned, but I wouldn't think this is true for one with that many miles.
Personally I'd spend 6k on a decent standard V6 with 40k, then you can stick a cup kit on it if it takes your fancy - and you get to choose the colour!

No no no. The cup is something special, you can't just buy a V6 and whack a Cup kit on it, that would be like cutting out a picture of Cameron Diaz from a magazine and slapping it on your girlfriend's face before you go to bed... it's just not the same.

If everything else is equal, the mileage does seem quite high.

Obviously check that it's all been stamped and had the belts done.

Forget about the tax increase, it's 200 extra for god's sake, over the course of a year it's not that much. For the opporuntity to own one of these, it's definitely worth it.

You're asking the question, which means you've probably already sold yourself, and just looking to justify your decision

Do it

Re: GTV Cup

Sorry my original e-mail said 60k (before the edit) as that's what I was told hence the excitement but I got a call later on that day saying they got it wrong and it's 90k (mainly motorway miles). I'm not getting it now. Too many miles for me. Definitely getting a GTV V6 though as soon as though be it a Cup or not (just waiting for my 147 to sell)

ah yes, I forgot about the Cup's superior suspension set up and massive power advantage !!

ok, i admit, adding a Cup kit is not the same - you have to live with full leather seats.

I appreciate the Cup is essentially the same as a regular GTV V6, but as a package it's something else. If you have a 3.0 V6 with a kit, it'll still only be a GTV with a kit. A Cup is a Cup and there's only 155 of them.
