  Whichever has fuel
Sadly cars like these tend to have lots of owners.

People buy them and move on after a year so its not something i'd worry about. Just buy it based on condition and service history. And please please buy a proper HPI/Experian check for it.

8k would be about right for glittery gold.

have a nose round AT for similar specced 197's.
 
  Fiesta ST-3
Ok so its service intervals are not right.... FSH but 6k to the next service?

36K which its on is the next big service including spark plugs.

I'm looking at a used 200 Which has had 4 owners on a 59 plate. One owner was a dealership but anyhow.
Tbh I'd rather 4 careful owners than 1 who just ragged the arse out of it and knocked lumps out of it.

I am going to give him a call to check the service history should all the belts be stopped etc at 36 thousand the most I want to pay for it is 7500 tbh

Ano yeah it's miles away from me as well but I can't find a ly anywhere
noing my luck I will drive all that way and be disappointed as I am very picky when it come to cars
 
  Evo 8 & 182
I just paid 8k for a F1 in Black full Renault history running 220 bhp cam belt done etc and its had 2 owners done 46k. So i would say 8k ish is about right

Just rung the owner and it haven't got the belts done and only taxed till August pluss it's a four hour drive I really love ly but I'm not sure if it's worth 8k and don't want to drive all that way and come home without it
 
As you say, if 8000 is the lowest he will come down to, your really paying 8600 once you've done the cambelt.

Another will come up closer to home.

And you can get a 200 for abit more, the 197s are quite hard to come across in ly with recros and f1 body kit etc we will see what happens lol

Please don't pay 8k for one that needs the belts doing. Either get them done in the price or you want £500 knocking off. I won't tell you how much I paid for my car but I could have bought my R27 AND a 1*2 for the price that is advertised for.

There is a 59 plate 200 on Auto Trader with 11K on the clock in LY. Sounds cheap at 8 and a half K too! Black wheels and Recaros, looks very nice. Does sound a bit cheap to me though!
