    FK8 Fk8 current values

    The market has shifted, and to me at least, a new FK8 is easily worth £40k. Not sure second hand FK8s are worth the current asking prices, but I guess supply and demand rules are in play at the moment. I wouldn't be surprised if the new 2022/23 CTR is over £40k, so that might also adversely...

    FK8 Fk8 current values

    I don't reckon second hand prices will go down too much anytime soon. I just sold my 6k mile 2 year old A45S that I paid the discount price of £55k when it was brand new, for £51k back to the main dealer. They sold it for £57k in about a week, which I think is still around list price. Make of...

    FK8 FK8 Facelift - does it still have issues?

    I had an early pre-facelift from new in 2017, did around 10k miles in it over 2.5 years, and had no issues whatsoever. I've got a 2021 facelift now, and have had no issues with that either. Chris.

    The shiney black plastic near the badge below the shift boot is covered with plastic film when it is delivered to the dealer. If it has a scratch on it, it's almost certainly been done post PDI at the dealer's. Chris.

    EP3 Civic Type R Limited Edition - Register - UK-000

    You have no idea, this car is more than just the paint. It's the closest any modern Type R has got to the original concept in my opinion. Comfort feels more hardcore to me than +R did in my old FK8. Chris.

    Thanks Matt. I bought it to drive, I never considered it as an investment/quick flip. I might sell it in a few years, when something else comes along and if I don't loose as much money as usual, it'll be a bonus.

    I think that's the dealer talking bobbins I'm afraid However, it will be at its brightest when brand new NH0 can change colour over time and become more cream, especially if not looked after, which is why it can be hard to paint match Chris.

    That is correct dweezle If a dealer places an order for a new CTR, Honda UK take £3,000 off them at the end of the month the order was placed If a dealer is accepting a lower amount for an order, then they are footing the shortfall at the end of the month Chris.
