No doubt some cars with higher miles are in better condition than some with lower miles. Again its just a personal thing. Regardless its a lovely motor
what aload of tosh ,no matter what you do adding 40k miles to any cars going to affect its value ,,just buy th ebest you can ,which this car is ,and drive it ,if youve got a nudge under £30k to spend on an evo are you going to use it as a daily ,you could own it for another 10 years and only just see 100k miles

Hows it a load of tosh? If this car had 30k on the clock do you seriosuly reckon it would still be for sale??? Lower mile examples will always be more desirable but as i said it dosent mean they are a better car. Its just a personal choice

Being a sports car aswell mileage is quite important. Ive owner many vw audi cars with well over 200k on the clock and they have driven better than a car with half the miles but cant compare a run of the mill car with a sports car. No doubt some cars with higher miles are in better condition than some with lower miles. Again its just a personal thing. Regardless its a lovely motor
Just to let you all know that the car will not be driven as it is in a new storage place so the mileage will not go up ! if anything it will do about 100 miles in the summer if i still have it !
But just to let everyone know i will not be given it away for peanuts as i know its not going to go down in value over the years.

Hi mate i am in no big rush to sell it now as the car is is safe where it is.
i only want genuine buyers who want to buy the car not just time wasters !!!

Those commenting on the price need not apply...This is one of very few sold in this spec, even with that aside if the price is too high, it simply won't sell or it will eventually...If the car isn't getting in the way and there's no urgency for MSP to shift it, then it's only going to go up in value.

Going up in value??? But you can't sell it for the advertised price so how can it be worth more. Im struggling to understand your justification, I keep reading this "only going up in value" ****** a lot and the cars ain't moving so how's that work?

Ok. What do you base your earlier comment upon? Are you basing it upon all the other white evo 9 mr 360 by hks advertisements we see on a daily basis?

The fact it hasn't sold

It's only worth what someone is willing to pay, not what other cars are advertise for.
