Hey all.

So it looks like I'm getting a 2012 265 Cup. Spec is:

Cup chassis
Recaros
RS monitor
Visibility pack
70k miles
FSH
Belts and dephaser pulley replaced April 2018
CGR 200 cell cat
Forge Dump valve (this will end up being replaced for a recirc)
Bilstein B14 coilovers
Wagner intercooler
All important yellow seatbelts

I've agreed a price of £10,400 from a private seller. Does this seem reasonable? It's a gorgeous looking car, and I'm pretty set on it. Just looking for an element of reassurance it's a decent price if nothing else!

Cheers smile

It’s a great spec car, everything I would personally have on one for sure.

Which wheels? What colour?

Thanks for this. I did have a look at it. Unfortunately the reason I didn't go for it was purely the colour. Otherwise it looks like a lovely car.

That sounds like a decent price. The only thing I’d be weary of if it’s had the swivel bearings done as they’ll definitely need replaced at that mileage if they’ve not been done already. Listen for gearbox whine too.

Well, I went for it. So pleased I did. Lovely car. Can't wait to get out and try it around some of our local roads! For now, it's sitting on the drive covered in Frost.

Looks great. Black wouldn’t be my first choice but that looks spot on.

Yeah black wasn't really my first choice either, in person it looks absolutely stunning. So glad I did in the end.

My biggest challenge right now will be keeping it clean!

Looks lovely that and sitting quite well. I went the opposite way and bought a yellow one but the black ones do look very menacing in the flesh.
The Tibor wheels are the best looking OEM ones too.

They do look good on 25mm lowering springs/coilovers
