Wanted to do an MOT Check. V100 FOK?

The govt site is saying it's not correct.

That's what I'd say it was as well.

If the number plate has been put back on retention, so that the car had reverted to its original plate (which you'd want to do before you sell the car), I imagine that might give you the error you get on the MOT checker site?

Wondered that. I guess the only option would be to message the seller. Just trying to work out why the price is set as such. Maybe the mileage is quite "high" (I think it's just right as it means it's been used).

8 years ago now, when I bought my GT-R, I looked at a Gallardo. A 2004 car, about 35k miles, was 55k.

So no real change in 8 years.

Prices seem to be falling on these early Gallardo's since i sold mine almost three years ago ,

Mine was a manual with 48,000 miles , the usual black with back ,

Paid a tad under £60K and owned it for around six years and sold it for the same as i paid for it

to the trade so probably sold retail for nearer £70K,

I would have thought they would have appreciated by now but that doesn't seem to be the case .

There's also another one from memory also RHD on "Car & Classic for £49,950 in purple,

Would link it but haven't a clue how to, probably a colour change or maybe a rap who knows ,.

As already been said they could be high mileage average cars for that sort of money but not much more will buy something much better.

Well - "something much better" being a lower mileage example? I'd rather not have a Gallardo with 15k on it. wink

Or if you mean a Huracan, I can't make the man maths work for me this time. biggrin

I do ideally want an older Gallardo as I prefer the engine.

Due 23 April 2025 ,tested at 67622 miles.

Suomething that seems a bit unusual, lowish use for several years, then 2011/12 an 11k between mots and then a 26k between mots! Could just be someone whos bought it and used it well. Then back down to minimum use over the years.

Also aound that time not mot'd for a few 6month gaps?

Thanks, appreciate the info.

I would guess the same. Dunno about the 6 month gaps. SORNed because expensive to run?

Probably would take me a year to sort myself out, anyway. I'm still really, really attached to my Porsche. (No, I'm not sitting in it right now but you know what I mean.)
