    The rapid escalation in asking prices for car which are unusual and over 10 years old can't be sustainable

    Depends on the car and the buyers I guess. This one being an estate in black is at least more realistic the some of the ones posted recently.

    Fair point but it's by far the lowest mileage estate I've seen.

    It is not super low miles and is not super high spec either. No keyless go or distronic that I can see for starters. My car is not as good nick but higher spec and drives spot on. Not sure I could say this was worth double mine. Maybe this one is worth £15-£16k maybe £17k at a push from a dealer....but £20k?

    No keyless or distronic will be a plus for many people.

    Not sure how not having keyless go or distronic can be a plus. Reduces resale audience and if you don't want or use it then you don't have to. Better to have it than not IMHO.

    I agree it is more to go wrong. However I would rather have it come resale than not.

    Once you've owned a car with Keyless and Distronic, everything else feels like a backward step.

    I see what you mean. I think perhaps it's me that's in the minority when it comes to these options.

    I have Keyless, but I wouldn't pay extra for it and wouldn't miss it if I did not have it. I can't say for Distronic; I've never had it.

    I've never had either and prefer mine without Keyless and Distronic as there is indeed less to go wrong.

    I bought my car for the engine, sound and performance - not for a load of options which you need on other cars to make them more interesting.
