I was in the same situation as u G13NVL, I waited for over a year until the right one came about. ended up with a PPP coupe for 30k. I put my deposit down for it the day it was advertised and was told by the dealer, someone had just test drove it and was going home to ok it with his misses and I rang up and bought it before he managed to get back to the showroom!
Carbon spoiler is also a nice touch that u get with PPP cars.

I'm 28 and have no kids! Maybe get into mountain biking so you have an excuse?

It never made sense to me that that Coupe is longer than the wagon..

I'm in no rush to sell it so would be happy to hold for a loving buyer.

Where are you based?

Haha I'm also 28! Funny you should say that as iv been looking at getting a new bike as used to do a lot but not had the time or other hobbies last few years.

I'm based in Chorley, Lancashire would much rather buy off an enthusiast than a random garage with unknown previous owners as I here the c63 engine is faily bullet proof if it has a nice full service history and sensible(ish) owner!

Email Richard.glenville@blueyonder.co.uk

Got my Hawkeye Impreza to sell yet with only 35k on clock.

Appreciate all the replies on here seems a decent forum people happy to help!

No worries.

As I said, the car is in no rush to move so if you wanted to consider it for later in the year I can wait. I have the option to stick it in storage once my Alfa comes next month.

Facelift PPP has carbon boot lip, alcantara half wheel, red calipers w composite discs, 30bhp power hike courtesy of SLS internals and that's about it. Locking diff is a rare extra..

Personally I'd try to get a PPP with locking diff, otherwise I'd get a nice spec 457 car, diff it, map it and get secondary cats removed.

19" wheels look good too, PPP car discs are extortionate to replace, forgot to mention PPP cars have Firmer dampers but stock 457 dampers are really firm enough for road use.

Ideal spec would be IMO,

Saloon w red interior
Button start
Harmon Kardon
Reverse camera
Locking diff / perf pack
19" wheels
Carbon interior trim + carbon Mirrors and privacy glass

I was adament I wanted a PPP car when I bought mine but sadly missed out on one with nearly all the options I wanted. Few months later got my current car which is really nice, quaife diff, map, cats removed 19'' forged 507 wheels with all the driving packs. Sadly black interior with aluminium trim.
