    Maybe is a tad pricey. But it is a high spec and the mileage is low, and it is a retail sale from a garage and it looks to have been serviced regularly (for what that's worth). So a good buy for someone probably. I guess if you can afford to feed it, a few shillings more on the purchase price won't bother you too much.

    You'd have to be daft to pay that for that

    Why??? :confused::confused::confused:

    Better to pay that much for one as highly specced as that than one cheaper with a lower spec and higher mileage.

    Suppose it depends on how you see it, why buy a TD5 with 150,000 and lower spec when you can have the V8 with all the toys for a bit more, and ok spend another £1400 ~ £1600 for a good sequential LPG installation and you can run cheaper than a diesel and enjoy the power.

    Think you need to stop thinking cheap and start looking at the quality of what you are buying, all too easy to get stuck in that mind set of thinking diesel is cheaper to run and lower spec is cheaper to buy, but you only need think like that when you are a fleet buyer and owner, better to have more comfort in your daily drive than wish you had the luxury of heated leather and electric everything.

    Think I might put in a bid for it, should be an easy import :cool:

    +1 better to pay that amount or at least make a near offer and have a trouble free vehicle with a 12month warranty than a cheaper one that been around and bodged to sell, the forums a full with D2s with major problems.

    If it was a TD5 then it might be worth a tad under £7k, but a v8 petrol no chance.

    It's a very good example, of course still would need a chassis check. One of my friends has a td5 in very good condition with some extras and that's worth. 6-7
    If say this is slightly high but only dealer high

    You pay for what you get
