It's up for 14 but getting it for 13650, got some knocked off as wheels need refurbed

Expensive but one of a kind and very rare, as yet I've never see one

Just one concern really, do yous think they will hold value very well?

Don't wanna pay all this then for them to have big drop but they've held value well up to now

Planning on keeping it 2-3 year

I knew as soon as I get one theres going to be a few more about, even worse in the north east grrr.

It's the same with all cars really the value will drop as soon as you sit in it. FDs tend to hold the value pretty well as they are rare in the UK. But difficult to say in a few years time though as we may see more FDs in the UK pushing down prices and rise in fuel etc. I got mine mainly because I really wanted to own a type r before I head down over the jazz route lol.

I think value on imports all boils down to the importers not flooding the market, they then keep the values high which in turn helps keep the independent/private ads around the same,
A good way of finding there true value is there part ex value. I usually use the wewantanycar.com type sites to find values, the closer to there under valuation you can get the better the deal you've got
But they don't do imports

I wouldn't be surprised if you could buy one from Japan and import it for around£10k or less, £14k is a lot of money for a 7 yr old car .as much as I admire them that's a 10/60 plate rs megane with 30k

Depending on age and condition obviously, try around £16-£17k at least from Japan

I may have got the wrong end of the stick, but I found a 2010 55k km for under £18k
Honda Civic ABA-FD2(2010) / TYPE R / US$27,916 / 55,000 km / Hearte International Japan Co., Ltd. - Japanese Used Car [ tradecarview ]

2 min google search

The importers must be making a good profit selling them at £14k other wise they would nt do it,
They kept the Nissan pulsar gti-r prices high for years till the market was flooded with cheaper and cheaper examples now there worth more in parts

That's what I meant mate, on the road price from Japan. The car will be less than £18k but you still have to get it here. Also just noticed the grade sheet for that car, it's damage repaired - the R in the top corner.
Anyway, good luck tomorrow hope it works out.

Going by how DC5's have held their value, I don't think you'll lose much if you had it for 3 years tbh.

Depends what u want tho mate, it's actually 6 yr old and it isn't a dodgey renault, had 10 plate clio 200, load of crap only had 3 month

Honda quality cars I've had 3 civic type r, there different quality to the likes of renaults, had fn2 obviously by pic but this easy best out of 3 had that's why went for it

If it holds value quite well then all the better

Price, age, make etc reflects the price, rather have this older fd2 than megane rs any day IMO of course
