    I think most sell but I've seen a good few price reductions. I think that's advertised at almost double it should be.

    That Carina owner has it a long long time, also has or had a white GTI too. It really is in amazing shape.

    But no. I’d never pay that for it. Not even half of that.

    There was a caldina turbo sold for a fair bit less than the asking (4.5k asking price i think?) of that carina gti recently, hard to see the gti being worth more than the 4wd turbo wagon

    Gimp alloys and stretched tyres. WHY, oh WHY?

    Nice set of alloys and non stretched tyres and you have yourself a nice car. I still don't think it would be worth 6 grand though.

    Yea but Caldinas don't have much of a following in Ireland, wheras Carinas are sort of "cult".

    Oh I know the carina would be the one, was just poking at the idea that it's not the 3sge powered carina that has all the grá, the cult following is more based around the diesel & the lane burn.

    A mint example of a dandable 2.0 diesel would ignite flames of passion across the country, possibly more than the gti

    A great honour for Liam Byrne to have an engine named after him.

    This guy is known for optimistic pricing but usually backs it up with rare, unique stock.
    €24k for a 22 year old 4 cylinder, I know W124's have a following but I think this has another decade before it would be worth half that. Here's one for £8k (admittedly with double the mileage) and I still think that's crazy money

    If I was in the market for a Micra I'd love that but not for €2.2k!

    So much to love in that Ad:

    "There is no end to the amount of work done to this vehicle... Cloth seat upholstery with additional cloth... windscreen wipers."

    Those look like specs from Jato and not something that was manually filled in.

    At least that one is turbocharged.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,056 ✭✭✭Sexual Chocolate


    Never knew until recently that them Focus were at the higher end of the 2.5 tax bracket. Always assumed they were €1080 a year.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,309 ✭✭✭✭wotzgoingon


    And with 2 litre turbo performance.

    2588cc I think.

    2006 was a while ago man.


  • Registered Users Posts: 73,401 ✭✭✭✭colm_mcm


    We had turbos back then too to be fair.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,056 ✭✭✭Sexual Chocolate


    If I'm correct the s60 and v70 t5s of the time still produced more power ? +260bhp ?

    Yeah they're mad tax. There's a guy in my apartment block with one, but it's utterly battered. Not a single body panel without damage, wheels are shredded, and the turbos clearly blown on it by the sound of it. I wonder why he still drives the thing at that tax rate.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,910 ✭✭✭selectamatic



    Marked as sold on DD.

    If anyone knows the seller I'd be very interested to hear what he got for it.

    Nowhere near his asking price I'm sure. Someone must have talked some sense into him.
