Is this a decent price for a Type R?

I've been looking around for a Type R a lot lately and came across a good example. Its on a 10 plate with 30,000 miles. The dealer has an asking price of 11,300. Would you say this is fair price?

Thanks

Wouldn't say that's a bad price really for a 2 year old car. Haggle and you might get it under 11k

Theres a few 59 plates on autotrader with 23,000 miles odd, private sale for 9995, but I suppose it depends on what spec, colour etc your looking for.

Am preferably looking for a silver R. Would a 10 plate likely have the LSD?

Depends when it was built. Think anything built from April 2010 has LSD so best check.

For my 09 CW for 11600 from dealer with 29000 on the clock! So for that price you could possible get a lower mileage one

It isn't a bad price from a dealer...
But i've seen others on a 10 plate with less miles for the same money!

From what i've seen and i have scoured the market a lot lately. most dealer prices are based on year!
The mileage isn't a problem as the engines are bomb proof if looked after...
But as a potential buyer i would always look for a lower mileage car within a specific price range.

It doesn't sound overpriced, but there will always be a cheaper one out there. I looked at a number of cars and the difference in condition was quite condsiderable between them.

I found at around the 10k price there was a very wide discrepancy between age mileage and condition as dealers tried to hit the sweet spot of the price. Paying an extra 500-1000 I found a post 09 facelift car with half the mileage and the condition was immaculate.

Some of the dealer cars are shockingly prepared and quite tatty. Rattles, broken seat mechanisms and clueless salesmen spring to mind. One wouldn't let me take it over 5000 rpm as it was wet!

Be a little bit flexible with your budget, be prepared to look at a few and choose one in good condition that's been cared for.

On the plus side there is loads of choice as Type R's feature below average mpg and a relatively high VED band which makes them unpopular for the cost conscious motorist. Worth it when you discover VTEC though.
