Buy a used one on an 09/59 plate, will depreciate the least and should be easier to shift after you're done as there are more people who can afford a £35k car than a £75k car...

But you won't want to sell it, so probably best planning to ditch the Mrs in a years time, will be easier :thumbsup:

He probably won't be the first one to ditch the Mrs for the GTR. :)

Already mentioned to the Mrs in 6 months time we may have a relationship problem lol

I've seen some 09 plates for the mid 30k mark, prefer it modded and is there anything I need to look for specifically i.e. stay away from or be attracted to (low amount of previous owners/mileage)

Thanks for the offer 'pulsarboby' but as soon as you mentioned the haribos the deal was a no go :)

If I was you verma I would buy an 09/59 as Webber said, as standard as possible, then mod it yourself. I've never been comfortable with buyng an already modded car, to me it's a sign that it's had a harder life than a stock car. Bizzarely some people seem to have the opposite view though, but the simple fact is that creating 50% more boost from a pair of turbos doesn't come free in terms of mechanical longevity.

thought that would be a deal breaker lol



as said you would be better off buying one on the never never if you've not got the cash for an outright purchase.
as long as you can afford the monthly instalments and running costs whilst you own it.
if things get a bit tight money wise you can always flog it on if you buy at the right price
but youll ditch the mrs before the car once you've experienced driving one of these cars
