This car seems to be popping up time & again in threads!

If it is the same car, the member on here had it up for £32,995 IIRC for ages & was a discussion about it on here, so if RSD are selling it for £30k, they obviously paid less than that, so the original owner didn't get quite the gains they were looking for keeping the mileage down to a mere 500 miles & no enjoyment! :whistle:

I seem to remember saying at the time, it's worth about £28k tops & not really worth any more than a car with 3k miles, only a delivery mileage car could really be worth near the original £33k asking price in my opinion. :yep:

Car is worth whatever people would pay for it.
If it will sell at that price, then Yes, if after some time they would be no takers , than No.
I wonder how much did the owner got for it from Rs Direct, 24-25k?
28 from what I hear , is it worth it? I would say it's worth 28 what they gave for it , look around and the 9k miles etc are up at 26 grand rsd just sold a couple at 26k so there is still serious worth to the mk2 , the ug car is stunning but a/ you would be frightened to drive it and b/ it will depreciate fast with extra miles so what do you do with it ??? Mothball it is only outcome for this car like it has been since new , I'm a garage queen but would like to drive my car on the odd occasion it's red hot outside :)
Beautiful car tbh

Totally get that, but whats your own opinion.. is it worth it? (especially as the Mk3 is 30k off the line)
Taking mk3 out of the equation , it does not for me.
This particular car would be worth 26-27k tops in My opion.
in order to achieve its price tag it would need to be a dilvery milage car ( no more than. 30 miles) and fully loaded, again in My opion.
But some memebers may disagree, even though they would never actuallly buy this car.

My old one PB 2700miles Lux1 10 plate no seat upgrade , obviously mint car sold for 27k that is absolutely guaranteed , only 2/3 weeks ago so I think it's 28k the 500 mile car but as you say would I buy it ? No as I think something with about 7/10k miles you can enjoy it a wee bit and it will cost you 3/4 grand less . Still a lovely lovely car the ug and I would imagine it will sell , fergusons just put a FW Lux1 9200 miles iirc for 26k , only worth what someone is going to pay but they seem to be selling them ?

As i said in my earlier post & you have pretty much confirmed my theory, a 500 mile really isn't worth any more than a car with 3k miles on it. :nice:

It's a difficult one, I have been thinking about buying this myself, my current car is a mint 11k miler in exactly the same spec and colour,
To be fair I prefer the green seats so no problem there, it's just justifying the extra money for basically the same thing, I have done less than 100 miles in the last year in my current car, and before anyone starts ranting it's a waste I am in the lucky position were I have other RS s
At my work to drive on a daily basis, it's interesting to see how opinions differ on cars like this, for me personally I think it would be the ultimate garage queen but I understand for most folks it would be a waste unless it's driven which then defeats the object as it would ruin its value.
Is it worth 30k ? In my professional opinion yes it is,let's be honest were are you going to find another one,and if you want a car for showing or concours what a great starting point this would be, think I better go now as I feel I am talking myself into buying it.
