I've done it again!

Really regretted my grey 2011 going to Blade last week, but not until after I sold it.

Am glad he is happy with it, but to me it's lost!

Down but not out, I've just bought an identical one which will be registered new on 1/3/12. Another 2011.

Feel much better now!

Only thing is that I am coming to realise that I have a problem.

Roll on number 4.

I let the last one go with a view to buying a 2010 and tinkering with it, but by the time I got it to the base 2011 position, it was going to be only about 8k short of the price difference between the two, and I'd always have that niggling feeling of dissapointment of maknig it look like something it wasn't (was going for 2011 bumpers for example).

So, I put the 11 up for sale and bought an exige.

I managed to sell the exige for a decent little profit and after combining the sale price of the gtr with the profit from the Exige, I managed to walk into a brand new 2011, a year newer than the old one, with new tax and new service pack.

The strange bit is the deciding to go back on my decision, but as a result of selling then changing my mind, I got to tinker with an exige for 4 months, and walk back into a newer like for like car.

The best situation, would have been to stop the sale of the old 2011, before it went through and just keep it and the profit, but it's too late for that now and at least Blade also got a great car for a great price at the same time.

?

I had the last one for 7 months. Longer than the other two put together. It's been a journey to help me realise exactly what I want from these things.

Fair play, longer than I've owned one that's for sure. Hmmm, maybe I should have put a smiley at the end of my last post, it was meant in the nicest of ways and not in a *sarcastic* " hope you keep this one longer, Rolleyes *sarcastic* way. I'll get the hang of English one day lol

I'm not offended - I'm really happy!

It's my first new gtr. In fact the first car I've ever bought new for myself.

Just need to wait for the new Q5 now to let the wife have the same enjoyment.

Top stuff. Where did you get it from, if you don't mind me asking?

What did you think of the Elise?

I almost chopped my GT-R in last year but before it was too late I realised what a great car I actually had and looking back now I would have had major regrets. Mine has been off the road for Winter but in that time I have been pawing over all the choice of mods for it and saving to treat it to a few this year. It's a great car and one I cannot see letting go...ever

You are a certified mentalist. Even the same colour!

Tell the truth; was the ashtray full on your old one, or had it simply run out of fuel? You do know there is a filler cap where you can put more fuel in you know?

Anyway, glad you agreed with me in the end and bought another MY11.
Had no idea you were contemplating putting a MY11 bumper on a MY10. That would definitely have had us calling the men in white coats!

It was an exige, not an elise and it was awesome!!

I have much respect for those cars now. They are more extreme than I could cope with but as a track weapon, they are a much more sensible choice than the gtr. They also cost bugger all to run and don't seem to depreciate. In my case it went up in value by 33% but then I bought well!

David, yes I was contemplating the bumper but that's because I find the 2010 looks a little dated now that I am used to the 2011. There are some great private sales of blue 2011s around. One with 2000 miles you could get for sub 60.

I was expecting the prices to have come down, but now having sold two 59 plates over the past year, the values are just rock solid. Incredible for a car of its type.

I'd been hunting for a few weeks hoping to get an my10 to mod, and everyone I had called about had sold.

March may change that, but I'm less concerned now. I had to get to the point of wanting the car not seeing it as a dent in my bank balance. It's been a good year so why not?

Who am I kidding? The passenger seat had dust in the leather perforations, so I bought a new one!

ps. re servicing, it will be Mill Hill probably, though I'd prefer Litchfields.

Never mind, Iain will still get a chance to sell me plenty of bits.
