    stunning

    want to swap it for my 2 1994 coupes?

    i bet that beast sound slike hell on toast when in a hurry

    £150k new

    just think if the original owner had bought a car for £5k an then spent £145 on a house he/she would still have something worth £145k ish

    i love the car though

    I suspect the original owner already has a house and didn't want to drive a £5K car. You can't take it with you...

    True, but without these nutters, lesser mortals like me could not have what I have now...

    Beautiful car, but only 3 months MOT would have me a bit puzzled. Also no detail of service history? Specialised market and all that.

    Life doesn't revolve around MOTs.

    If you have decided to sell, why wait two and a half months to then get an MOT?

    I sold my last car with less than 2 months less but to the best of my knowledge it would sail it (like it did for the previous 4 under my ownership).

    What does it matter if it only has 3 months?

    Because on an expensive car, £40 for a new MOT is a reassurance for many buyers.

    Cats, tyres, brakes, steering/suspension bits etc.

    I probably wouldn't bother if it had say 6-9 months remaining, but with 2 and a bit months remaining it makes sense to put another ticket on a £20k+ 7 year old car :)

    Says the owner hasn't the confidence (at least to me) to get a year, its only £50 on a £150k car. I'm not saying you are wrong, just it would introduce doubts to me, an MOT failure could be costly.

    I'd certainly not sell a car as nice as yours, without, if I wanted top money.

    We'll differ on this but I would put it up right away.

    I agree it is more attractive with an MOT but I would be getting the car inspected at that level of money (which I duly did with mine).

    That would obviously be to a much greater detail than an MOT - which only serves to check how roadworthy it is and is only valid that day - a lot of which you can see for yourself when you look at it.

    A buyer might get a bargain turning up at this stage due to others being put off by it having that much time left until it expires...

    If it gives people piece of mind having a long MOT, that's their business.

    As long as they realise that if you know the right people, you can get a guaranteed pass for £50.

    Short MOT might possibly suggest to potential buyers "What else has owner been skimping on?"
    If i was selling - i would put fresh MOT on it
    Considering only 36 sold in UK surprised how many turn up for sale

    Much harder than it was:)

    And to be honest, it does give peace of mind. If you want top money for for a pricey car you need to al least say 'it will come with 12 months MOT once you've paid the deposit.

    3 months and I know it will pass another, trust me I'm selling?

    Yes, my business if I'm picky, but also my money. It may be a ringer MOT but at least I've 12 months to sort it.
