Hi,

I've recently sold my mint honda crx vtec & i'm looking to replace it with maybe a clean williams.

pic of my crx:-

I have a budget of about 3k, will i get a clean williams for 3k? I could stretch the budget for a mint example! I have a heated garage so the car would be well looked after (use a Focus for everyday stuff).

Other cars i'm considering are:-

Golf gti 16v
Corrado vr6
205 gti
325i sport (nearer 4k for a clean one!)
Fiesta rs turbo / rs1800

Cheers,

Mike

Nice CRX 8)

You'll get a nice Williams for 3k mate. Just don't get the first one you see (unless it's mint), as they vary massively in the way they drive and also condition-wise.

All those other cars would be a good shout as well. Just make your way through the list and you won't have to miss out on any of them :D

Yeah I would hold on and wait for the right one, I looked a 4 or 5 before I bought mine at the end of Nov and to be honest it's genuinely the best example I've seen. No. 2 with 60K 2 lady owners and meticulus SH, not even a parking ding for 3K.

The ones I looked at ranged from a 1 with 100,000K for 2.5K, two no.3 with 45kish at 4,000 - one of these was reduced to 3,200 before it sold.

They are out there....again though depends on demand and the sellers urgency to sell.

P.S. Pictures of mine to follow once I get a dry day...

I'm in no rush to buy & would rather wait for the right car, but i don't want the money sitting in my bank account for too long! I'm a spender not a saver!!
