When Gary put it up for sale last March I was told about it. All fixed, all sorted now.

Gary sold it for 48k so not a bad 18 months depreciation.

I know of only one that sort of matches your description... and if it's the same one, then they're Cargraphic splits! Wink

Do any of the GT3s on the market come with a straight forward no nonsense history? Were I in the market for one, think I'd have to save up and go for a new one rather than second hand.

Your probably right, I'll blame it on Sundeep as he said they are BBS's. Wink

It looks stunning!

In awnser to your question Richard, it would appear from my experience not!

getting quite frustratrated by it all tbh,

and prices from indies are on the same button as OPC's, when the car is of the same standard

Gary's old car is an excellent example. Talk to Parr and they'll tell you that, it's being extremely fettled though!

I'd rather start with a good clean example and slowly 'upgrade' it..........or say bollox to it and track the sucker immediately :)

The main dilemma is buying blind, not knowing who the previous owner is and what kind of care the car has had. On a GT3, I would be far more concerned to know about what kind of work/care/attention the car has had rather than not knowing at all apart from the stamps in the service book. The RS that recently sold for a song through one of the OPCs for about 63k (I think?) was a mint example previously owned by a well known Titanicer. There were threads on PH about the car because it was being sold by an OPC, but that car was very well maintained irrespective of cost by the very best in the biz (an Indie!).

Best thing to do when looking for a GT3 is to ask around... ask those who use them as intended and look after them properly.

there are problems though Ade,

eg,

for someone such as myself buying a three, if i was wealthier, then a moded one wouldnt present a problem, as any work it might require would be affordable,

however purchasing on a budget means being aware of potential problems, and many of those can be overcome with an OPC wtty. You cant put a wtty on a heavily modded car, nothing will be covered.

No matter how well looked after, a heavily tracked car will have had wear on internals in the transmission and engine, and that is likley to start showing itself around the 40k miles mark,, and potentially very expensive to put right if no wtty.

So do i think modded car good value, only if you have the money to upkeep it, though if you did you would probably buy a new one, so hence Catch 22,

and why finding an unabused one so important to me.

Chris TBH,

TT is just a faster version of mine,

and will probably not handle quite as well cos it will be heavier,

its not the power, more the handling as well, the balance which you can only get with RWD.

So stick untill right one that I am happy with presents itself.

Also made the mistake when buying mine of getting the best colour combo, and the best kit PCM2, Bose, Sunroof, and interior trim etc etc, that everytime i get in it I love it

It's horses for courses mate - I'm not so much of a track day man as you, so I think the TT will suit me really well (especially for those touring holidays around Europe!).

I see your point completely, if you're happy with a car then stick with it.
