Yep the economics of crash damaged cars have never made much sense to me either.

 

They all seem to be the price of an undamaged one minus exactly the cost of repair, so why bother? :question:

Didn't hear that he'd pranged it.

Not been active on the forum for a very long time though.

I'd like to know where these damaged cars come from, there must only be a small number of auction houses that the insurance companies use.

I thought mangels was Medina Green?

 

Yes the plate looks familiar, although there were a few registered "PRA" - S4simon's red one from Australia for example

Hi - this one caught my eye on ebay.

 

Is it really a bit pricey?

 

How much do you think it would cost to repair and how much would a repaired one be worth?

 

just wondering?

No idea on cost to fix until it's been inspected

Mid teens for it fixed up but will have the CatD that will put a fair few off. That may knock it down to very early teens.

Prices online vary massively, prices actually paid appear more realistic.

The S4 is a lovely car though. It's in your favourite colour too! :D Cost to full colour change will be a few thousand to do it properly, along with the repairs you'd be better off hanging out for one you really like IMHO

I've just noticed the gear shift in it! :hrhr: holy crap, please tell me somone didn't think that looked good?

Thanks - I'm not known for patience !!!

 

Interestingly I noted I actually registered on the forum in 2008 - that must have n]been when I had thought of an Esprit - eventually chickened out and bought the Boxster.  But I'm back...
