    Wanted - low mileage Hawkeye spec c

    As above up to 20k available for the right car. Probably source one in Japan otherwise.

    thanks

    It’s going to be hard to get one from Japan and have it VRT’d for 20k

    don't go bursting my bubble. Agree that from japan might be a bit more than 20k required based on current prices

    I'd rather have a 204 but I get what you're saying in years to come it'll be worth huge money and you won't lose

    I recon the prices are peaking at the moment. Even if l had the money l would wait until the next recession. If there is anything for sure is that there is going to be another one

    ROS updated the VRT calculator the other week. An awful lot of JDM cars have been removed and even a lot of performance cars accessible through the UK are now gone.

    You're literally playing Russian Roulette with them now.

    But **** it, it's only money. We can't take it with us and if you've funds there to get something you want and to enjoy then go for it.

    The catch 22 is that when you buy car for big money on the speculation that’s it’s going to go up in value.. you are less likely to use and enjoy it, for fear of de valueing it

    Your right Tommy there will be another recession in 7/10 years time , But s203/204 and ra-r And spec c cars are starting from a low base , there the cheapest there every going to be . So in that regard there's not going to go down or drop so will only go up .

    At what price there going to reach it's anyone's guess but over 50k is a guarantee. Ra-r prices are over rated at the moment for what they are , yes there a good car but have Same engine as the s204 same suspension 6pot front brembos and the spec c lighter shell no carbon fibre recaro seats / and No yamaha/sti damper bars .

    My view is Map a spec c with a few choose mods and you would have a car just as good as an ra-r with half the price tag

    Only way to settle this is on Tsukuba. Ra-R v SpecC v Evo v FD2 v NSX.

    RA-R is big money. Hurst seem to source some absolute crackers.

    Agree 100%. Gives an argument for buying something worth less and thrash it

    With Vrt, vat and duty from Japan beginning to wonder about getting something low mileage

    I don’t think it’s a great time to buy, cheap money, good economy and trend in collecting cars are all making cars more expensive. But who knows when they’ll be cheaper
