Wanted V6 Convertible 30k

Post by WillowFType » Thu Jun 10, 2021 8:48 pm

Hi all,

Been looking at an f type for a while, was considering an Aston V8Vantage but for a budget of £30k ish the examples around are quite old! I see the f type as comparable in terms of what it offers as a weekend car but with newer technology and without a clutch made of play dough.

The ask is for a v6,v6s or even v8 (bit more cash possible), decent spec, ideally not a very early model and full service history (main dealer or indie is fine), mileage sub 40k, must be convertible! Colour-wise I would consider anything apart from black or very dark.

There are some ok examples on auto trader but most seem to have 4/5+ owners which worries me a bit.
Looking to buy and collect next week - anyone thinking of selling and it fits this criteria please let me know!
Cheers.

Thank you, yes so I’ve seen! Been waiting to pull the trigger for a while and it seems they’ve gone up a good few thousand over the last 6 months. The time is right for me to buy and perhaps for someone else to sell !!

Good luck, did a quick search on motors.co.uk and only found older coupes at that price

Oh that red one looks lovely, got the performance seats too which don’t seem very common.
What’s people views on 4 or 5 owners on a car that is approaching 7 or 8 years old? Is that 4 or 5 honeymoon periods or loads of problems so it’s been off loaded?

I think someone on here might be able to do a history search on the car if you have the VIN

i wouldn't worry about the number of owners unless it was a hire car. A lot of owners buy a car as a weekend toy then realise that they rarely get the chance to use it due to poor weather and having to do other things on a weekend.

If someone is able to do a search on this VIN that would be awesome!

Surely a hire car would only have one owner (the hire company). Probably plenty of careless drivers, though.

Lots of leather and toys, and loads of noise!
