That probably applies to all brands too, doesn't it.  And houses too, come to think of it.  :doh:

Not really... a properly documented Major service on a Ferrari or Lambo by a reputable name will add value, maybe not the full spend, but certainly a large % of it.

Fixing faults doesn't add value. But servicing or replacing consumables such as clutch and brakes and tyres does.

You will find that this is the norm.

firstly > dont you guys ever work? haha
secondly, cost is not really any concern for me, i have the $20K and my current car an 06 VE Commodore - while i like it i dont love it, its time for it to go.
in the past my dad has had an 84 esprit and a 90 esprit. while i dont rememeber the first one the second one i have always had great memories of.
there are only 2 that i cant really find, one in VIC that looks alright for $19500 but the engine is in a million pieces and the one here in WA for $32000, i find it worrying that its been on the market for a while and at the same price as he bought it 4 years ago. IT HAS AN OIL LEAK!!!! i know what these things cost to repair

You're not making any sense. If cost isn't any concern for you - why are you looking for a $20K car?
C'mon, do it!

it's best to get a well sorted car in the first place, cos they don't cost much more than shit heaps.


Ah, but where do you get a well sorted S4s?????  They just don't come up for sale, so it's a matter of getting a shit heap and fixing it. Like I did.  :sadnana:

err, you're not making much sense.

Go buy the perth one if cost is of no concern and you know how much it is to fix. How easy do you want it?

+1


Any $20K Esprit is going to cost you at least another $20k to get it up to scratch, or maybe not even.


The $19k Esprit with the engine in bits will cost $10k just in labour to put the engine back together before you start on anything else.

well i'm thinking that i may have to, but my current plan is to just wait it out til something that grabs me a little more comes along and in the mean time i can keep saving
