Looks like Meridien have got a CS for £200k as ad has been removed.

So come on who sold their CS? :-)

Maybe just removed because it was a Wanted ad in the For Sale section....

Meridien are about to re-advertise the silver CS they recently sold but now for £159,995 (long story why they have it back but was just offered first refusal on it).

So they buy for £200,000, and sell for £159,995. :-)

Mileage has gone up from 8k to 16k and price has gone up by £20k.
Wheels have also gone back to silver finish, perhaps it cost £20k for the wheel refurbish :-)

Oh no not yet another CS example with a massive overhaul and refurbishment to get it in a saleable condition. At this rate genuine unmolestered cars have got to be worth £300k ?

Sod buying anymore houses I'm going to buy every CS that comes on to the market and dictate the price

Two silver cars together, now that is a rare sight.

Is it just Meridien selling CS ? No other dealer seems to get a look in or sell them.

Bob services a silver one. They now service '5' cars, yet not one of the owners wants to sell

I know a dealer in Kent that's sold 4 360CS this year.

Said he wants mine back as he has someone that wants to buy it.

There's 4 Stad's for sale.

Needs new disc's x4 and it was a track day gift car. So had a hard life and who wants to buy a car and then spend 12K plus the vat on discs ?

60K more than I paid for a LHD car and silver.


http://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/f...

Dick Lovett car is 105k for a LHD car with 35000 miles. looks a lot IMO.

I think the time of sub 100K low mileage Strad's has gone.

Keeps me happy not blowing money every month and having fun at the same time.

I don't think 360CS prices in the UK are sustainable, europe seems to be perpetually littered with good value CSs:

http://www.autoscout24.com/ListGN.aspx?vis=1&s...

At the risk of making a sweeping judgement, I think it's got to the point that if you're buying a UK car you have rather a lot more money than sense. Pretty much any way you cut it, the fact that it would be LHD makes no significant difference difference: buying it to cosset and look at? No difference. Buying it to drive properly on track? No difference. Buying it to drive to Le Mans etc every year? Actually better in LHD. Buying it for Sunday blasts on empty roads? No difference.

I potentially see a CS in my future at some stage, and it would def come from Europe if I went for it. Hell, at the way prices are going, I could have a LHD CS AND keep my 550 for 'mundane' drviving for the price of one UK CS.

Totally agree with all of above. Madness and the bubble has got to burst. Just make sure you don't miss the boat or conversely get your fingers burnt
