5's for Sale
« on: 17:20, Thu 04 July 2013 »
I've been on having a look at what's for sale and noticed just how little 5's are coming up for sale and the silly asking prices for them  :-\
Does anyone know if they are getting these prices?
I wouldn't have thought you would have to pay any more than 3k for a real minter but they are advertised @4-5k+

i totally agree i dont understand why they are so so much money it is crazy for an old car like that. I would have thought that a mint 5 would cost about 3 grand but like you say not even a mint one is looking like 4-5 crazy. I had a look at the starlet turbos as i used to have one and they are going for nothing now so cheap compared to what i paid for mine a few years back.

I don't think they're over priced, just look at all the 80's hot hatches now, especially anything with an RS or XR badge. Why shouldn't 5's command a premium too. Unfortunately a vast majority of people absolutely ruined many, many 5 turbo's by fitting ridiculous bodykits, silly front ends from Renault 19's etc. So that left the nice, looked after standard cars commanding a premium.
