Buy the producers for 10k more and avoid putting 15k into a 6k one.

The dents, falling off front bumper, etc are perfect
Just missing a 2" drop, and some XXRs

The mini would be a better buy than the coradddo. I'm still trying to figure out if minis are good. Never driven one. The sc ones seem pretty cool but everything sounds like it's an engine out?

I had an 06 S, the car was a riot to drive. Would highly recommend. Especially at 2500$.....

2016 Porsche (981) Cayman
74k km
$59k

https://vancouver.craigslist.org/pml...658756491.html



This one is not as good a deal as the Grandma 981 Boxster I posted earlier, but it is showing prices for these cars are dropping a bit now. It seems like Kia West (in Coquitlam) is the dealership selling the car, and it was initially listed for $64k. After sitting for 3 weeks though, perhaps the dealership is more eager to move it out of their inventory.

From what I can tell, the car has:

- 2.7L NA flat 6 engine
- PDK
- Sports Design steering wheel
- Sport Chrono
- 2-way manual / powered seat
- 20" Carrera S wheels

My 04 MCS has 325,000KM......what maintenance issues?

1. Leaking hydraulic steering system - factory feature. Pending class action lawsuit
2. Blown shocks - replaced
3. Burns a quart of oil every 1000km - just age, right?
4. Alternator and starter went out the very same day - old car problems
5. Front wheel bearings went - they were original. No big deal, right?
6. Original exhaust broke/rusted - replaced
7. New battery - Interstate
8. New pulleys, accessory belt, water pump, radiator, all sorts of BMW related features
9. New oxygen sensors - wear and tear?
10. New header

List is so long

But fun to drive. Someone please get the MCS posted.

You guys think he'd let the MCS go for $2500...? He's asking $6000.

Better driving car yes, but if you have eyes that you use, the corrado is one of the best cars out there for the price.

The R53 (first gen) had better handling than the R56 (2nd gen).

Regarding the Mini:

If you want a first gen, get a 2005. They sorted out a ton of issues (QOL as much as anything else) for that year.

I wouldn't touch the second gen unless is was a JCW.. and even then...

The third is engineered and built to a higher standard.

Read my Mini experience in donk's review thread lol

built to a better standard maybe because it was no longer co-engineered with Renault, but damn they built mine on a Friday OT shift or something.

This is as good as it gets for E91 Wagons. Full of regret since I had just picked one up without the ultra rare M sport package lol.

Yeah, the Renault engine was a real turd.

I'm sorry you ended up with a lemon. I only had mine for a year but I ragged on it quite a bit and had zero issues. I haven't heard too many stories about the F55 etc. but I do admit I haven't gone looking lately.

I'd never buy one new though. That depreciation is savage.
