    What makes you grin

    Leeds Rhinos first and foremost but yes a big fan of Union too. Don’t miss many England games but don’t support a club side. Quins v Bears yesterday was one of the greatest games of all time.

    Not exactly rock ‘n roll but it will be comfy. I recall my father wanting one as they were Euro car of the year, but he made do with his 190BX.

    It could but he mentioned everything bar running costs. The Camaro is probably the worst option, the Yanks aren’t known for their city cars.

    Depends on budget. And how tolerant you are of early autos or shite crunchy gearboxes.

    Ps. Love a classic Renault. A 4 would do nicely.

    Someone go and get him back, he’s spent too long in France. He’ll be buying Citroens next for the ride quality ;)

    Autotrader is easily the best, biggest audience, reassuringly expensive.

    Apologies, my mistake, I didn’t think you could get a late engine with early AC controls, I incorrectly understood that being the way to tell them apart from pics. Rest still stands though re spec, colour etc. I know pretty well, as @outrun we’ve owned 7 of them as Lucy’s car over the years.

    A few things that’ll affect it. Laser blue along with red is the weakest colour. Low spec car, no leather. Cars like this with fewer miles, Works kit, at a dealer in a better colour are a far more attractive purchase: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202106073574632 The main thing is...

    How much percentage wise should you pay more from a dealer than private...

    I just took off 25% for being Cat D. Few dealers would sell a Cat D car so I didn’t adjust 10% for private also.

    Yes 25% off, so it’s priced perfectly. It’s not really a car than can be comparatively valued, so it’s worth what someone is prepared to pay, bearing in mind there will be few buyers about.

    You just posted as I was typing, there is unlikely to be a comparable car. In my opinion; thankfully so. A white Cat D DB9 with a red interior for sale in Bradford!!

    How much percentage wise should you pay more from a dealer than private...

    Incredibly difficult to quantify. In order for this to be measurable you’d need 2 identical cars to be for sale. They would have to be the same spec, mileage, condition and similar location. It would also depend on the age of the cars as to whether warranty came into play. You have to decide if...
