    Default 20k(ish) on a 348 = Dumb Idea ?

    Just wanted to know how bad it would be to get a 348 (LHD or RHD doesn't matter) but is the thing likely to be a fast looking money pit ?

    Not at all, but the car you buy will probably need some cosmetic work. Generally if a car has a full service history and has been maintained properly, they are pretty safe in terms of reliability.

    At 20K ish, you would have to expect to pay something to get the car up to scratch, less if it's a LHD.

    Also depends on what you can live with in terms of Body work, Interior & engine.

    Well, not having had a look at any yet, just trawling through PH looking at potential toys, and boy can I spend hours just dreaming and what not.

    This week Im off to try out my good friends 935Bhp Supra, heh.

    I guess Im just not 100% sure on what I want because I haven't driven any of the potentials...Im sure by the end of the week I'll have a mini list.

    it wasn't that cheap ;) , it was up for 25k, but I guess it would have looked like more of a 20k to me.
    They seem to stop around the 21k, there are 3 I think of at the moment which are about that, 1 being a blue tb (there is a thread about it on here somewhere). and a red ts on ebay which on the face of it looks very nice, but needs a cambelt, hence the price.

    You guys missed out on Ville's LHD 348. Looked in great condition and he sold it for 19K ish.

    So really, its a case of taking an owner of a 348 with me to see what they think if I find one in a couple of months ?

    I'm currently looking around, and I think if you can at least hook up with an owner, see an example of a 'good one' you can then manage your expectations around that.

    the one I viewed was IMO, a little tatty and left me thinking "sh*t, I hope they're not all like this". I had a look last night at Siban's car(cheers mate ) , what a lovely example!!, really restored my faith, but he also gave me some good pointers on what too look for, over an above the shed I've viewed already.

    Build up your own opinion, view a few cars and get a feel for them. This is the advice I've generally been given here, and am working my way through this process!!
