Thats a lot of car for little money but yes it must be the mileage thats made the price drop. Maybe worth a look if your Mrs is a low mileage driver mate?

wrong colour tbh... although very cheap...

too many miles also for us, for this type of car imo

Premium Edition. Didn't come with SatNav. Probably pre ordered, so it was £54k new. Mileage is high.

Dare I say, It might not be straight where it should be, and curved where it should be. :)

So it isn't cheap at all. You always get what you don't pay for. :D

Maybe they did, but when I bought mine in September 2009, the choice I was given was premium no nav, black edition no nav, or black edition with nav.

No matter, the point is if it's one of the £54k cars, it's priced about right.

They did......and the original price has little bearing on its price now.

The price is dictated by the cars around it, and it condition and mileage. The reason 09 cars are holding there value is because of the price of the new ones is increasing.

From the advert it looks like a really nice car. I would guess it's been well looked after with no expense spared, as all bar one service was by an expensive NHPC, still has expensive runflat tyres by the look of it, and still has expensive OEM brake discs. Ultimate silver too, nice.

Sorry Flynn, but that isn't the case. The original price has everything to do with the resale value. For example:

Sale price = original price - depreciation

et voila.

I wouldn't pay more for a mk4 Escort, simply because the mk5 was more expensive.
I'd pay even less for the mk4, coz it's an out of date piece of smiling brown poo. :)

(This is a joke)

I agree with Flynn. (and not just because he's got a very nice MY14) :chuckle:
If the new ones were still £54,000 people just wouldn't be paying £30,000+ for early high milage cars that are five years old and around £40,000 for four year old ones in good condiion with sensible miles.
Not to mention around £50,000 for a three year old one out of warranty...

The increase in list price has clearly effected the prices that older ones command.

Looks like a good car, possibly a cheap starting point for a forged engine and turbo upgrade if you were so inclined.
