60 plate is good. Get yourself a stage 5+ car and then spend the money you have saved, detuning it to stock which will increase residual value. That's where the clever money would be spent.
Evogoef has been looking at MY12's so I think it must be a open budget, not that it's any of my business... I guess he's looking for the right car and I suppose you got to if it's for a show car....Its just when a mint car is posted up at £40-43k you don't go and view it but when theres one around £36/7k you say its not mint enough hence my opinion above.
