paid 12 from a main dealer. throwing in 2 new front tyres, years tax, 1 years warranty (from honda dealer) full tank fuel. was going to pay 10,200 for a 59 plate with 24k but would rather buy from a main dealer. prob paid a bit over the price but at least ill have peace of mind.

that's not bad for a low mileage 60 reg, with the extras thrown in worth over £500 too, the good news is you will have an LSD fitted as std for improved handling.

I paid £8990 for my 10 reg but it had done 63k miles ex lease

That's about what I paid. Picked mine up last weekend.
2011 plate with 20000 on the clock.
I was surprised when looking how the prices vary so much.

I paid £10,800 for a 10plate with 17,500 mile, is yours a 60plate because some of them didn't come with lsd's.

yeah sounds like prices do vary. some amazing deals on privately advertised ones around 2007-8 cars. i just wanted peace of mind. it is a 60 plate, pretty sure it has LSD but will double check. so even people with later 2010+ models have the roof issue?

Congrats mate.

What tyres are the dealer putting on for you?
I got 2 new tyres thrown in with mine when I got it last year. Needless to say, they are absolutely atrocious. More hazardous than anything else. But guess it's the dealers saving money while making it.

But congrats on the new car and hope it gives you many happy years of motoring.

My 60 plate doesn't have an LSD so check. PS I paid about the same 12K for a saphire blue with 17,000 miles too. 6m tax and new front tyres.

Prices do seem to vary considerably.
I put a deposit down on my new car last Sunday at a Honda dealer. Its a Type R 2011 model on a 60 plate (its got LSD fitted), Milano, Red 2 years Honda warranty, 1 years tax and having it sealed for £12775.00.
Happy with the price, its had only 1 owner, done 18500 miles and has got almost 4 new Potenza tyres fitter.
