yeah it looks great. What make the others not so great at times is the seats. They needed to make the option of black with red or red with black more readily avail for the FK2 and 8 as a lot of colours would look better with the black and some red over the red and some black (if that makes sense)
It’s down to how many are currently for sale and that people aren’t buying them at the inflated prices ..I know I shouldn't keep looking but I received an updated WBAC quote for my now sold FK8, the price has softened (reduced by 3k in value) - I wonder if this in part due to the new CTR being formally announced, or maybe the fuel crisis has a slight trend away from ICE cars in favour of EVs?
Exactly this, I cant see many people thinking paying 40K+ for a Civic Type R is value no matter what edition it is, let alone circa 28-35K for a 17 plate on low miles or an 18 plate on anything up to 30k miles etc.It’s down to how many are currently for sale and that people aren’t buying them at the inflated prices ..
Decent result. I was on for £6500 profit in 10 months and I turned it down (paid £27,500 last November, the valuation I booked the appointment on was £34,000). I literally let my heart rule over my money-grabbing head! Also, my Integra DC5 plan might still be on the cards if some stars align.
As has been said by adymi16, I have been in the market for a few cars since April but am not willing to overpay for one (especially an FK8) as their prices are silly now. Literally less than a handful have moved/sold in the past month and I am watching the market and many examples daily, wont be long until the prices drop further (they have already started too) and I will be more than happy to start buying my next few cars once the prices for them are right.Hello lads, this is my first post on the forum.
I'm returning to type r's in the next few days - been maybe 3 years since I had my second fn2.
The wife's crv is making way for an fk8 and I hadn't looked at the market until last weekend. Prices are pretty steep but they remain much of a muchness with other hot hatches we were looking at.
Here in the central belt of Scotland theres 3 or 4 fk8's in dealership's and the pricing is super consistent across them all - between £29k and £32k depending on year and mileage.
I've been to test one and contacted a couple other places asking about wiggle room on prices and I've been shut down, lol.
The salesman at Redgate Lodge in particular didn't waste any words with me telling me there was absolutely no negotiating to be had on stock prices.
Nope most of the FK8's and I30N's (which are my two fav choices as an everyday car) that I have been watching have either remained on sale and not moved or dropped in price over the past few weeks slightly. The drop on the I30N in the last month has been nearly 2k so I am waiting a little longer. The FK8 dropped 1K this week but I am still not hsappy paying the price they want for it. I guess I am in a good place not needing a car and so not having to buy in a time they are clearly overpriced :-(Good advice guys but I'm afraid there's not much chance of waiting happening.
Our four year old car is being rushed through the gears of war this week to be sound as a pound for its imminent trade in!
We've had the car 4 years and it's all paid off. The last few months it's been kinda one issue after another with it and just had enough of it all to be honest.
I'll probably go and test one or two more cars but feel good about the one I tested at the weekend and it seems to be well priced in the current market at least.
Have cars really not been moving?
I confess I haven't been monitoring the market until just last week so I'm a bit behind. I was actually getting worried that a £30k car might go up between now and next Spring.
I don't suppose you know how long the 2018 at motorpoint in Glasgow has been on the market for?Nope most of the FK8's and I30N's (which are my two fav choices as an everyday car) that I have been watching have either remained on sale and not moved or dropped in price over the past few weeks slightly.

I have been watching them like a hawk daily since the end of April
Even in the current market £33k is over priced, by maybe £2k-£3k.33k for that 2018 car is insane. The only way that could be a viable purchase is if the new 2022 type r is a total turd (my moneys on it being excellent) and the used markets staying as strong as it is now.
That's a 25 to 26k car imo.
Don't get me wrong strong used values are great, I bought a new 21 plate one in june and I'd love prices to stay so high (free motoring).
But I can't see them holding money at the current inflated values especially 3+ year old cars.
