    Wow, thanks for all the heads up I didn't realize they weren't the best. I've seen one of their cars in person and it looked immaculate and I've seen another on youtube. Their FB page makes them look really good too with all the GTR's they fix. I'm glad I mentioned it to you lot lol. I'll either find a car myself or more likely bottle it and go JM imports as that's up north.

    Just a small update on this. It looks like I'll need a budget of 35K to get a very good Type RS which is what I want. I've got a bit more saving up to do.

    Do you really, really want an RX7? Because for that amount of money (granted they would depreciate) but you could net yourself some pretty rad cars. 718 Caymen would top my list there.

    Or is it like an investment toy?

    I really want one lol. I could get one cheaper in UK with mods that's a bit tatty but normally I'm a sensible person, I'm on property ladder already and want to spend inheritance on something I really like.

    I think it's an ace idea and, realistically, if you buy right, you won't lose anything.

    Just to be clear, I didn't think it wasn't a cool as heck idea. It's just I didn't know if it was more important to get an RX7 over getting anything else in that range that might be fun. The Rex won't depreciate though, I'm sure.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to make it sound like you were framing it that way

    The only advice I'd offer, Danielle, is not to be drawn into paying so much for the RX-7 that you later realise you could have had something else for the money.

    I've done it myself. I started after one car at 15K and ended up looking at them at 65K before I realised I could get a different make of car for 35K that I'd not really imagined I could ever justify.

    Its just an idea but if you put search criteria into Autotrader/Car Classics with no make and model and a price range of say 30-35K and RWD and petrol (or whatever will meet your needs) you might be surprised at what comes up. I know I was. You can then go hunting for the right car with a more relaxed price range.

    This, very much this. The 35K RX7 drives and looks exactly the same as the 8K RX7 you didnt buy 10 years ago but everything else is 10 years better, and in the case of newer cars 10 years further through its depreciation.

    And both these points are exactly why I sold my R32 GTR. Because it was chunky money compared to 10 years ago and it was a weapon, but it wasn't anywhere near as good as cars around for the same money.

    So I bought a non-running S14 to make my own on the side, and when that's done I'll buy something modern to go with it.

    All valid points, I will definitely regret not buying one though. I have thought about the fact I could get an S15 for a lot less which is tempting as they are rocketing but I feel it's an itch I need to scratch. I also regret giving the ex so much money and not buying one years ago but hey ho that's life.

    Since someone had the minerals to stick a 15 they'd bought 3 weeks earlier up for 27,500 on Facebook this week, I don't think 35k for a decent RX7 sounds like bad value at all.

    Bought 3 weeks earlier for 19k might I add lol. That's the controversy.

    Near thirty big for a car with an SR in it. I'd have kittens at the thought.

    It’s not even the most expensive one. There’s a silver one on eBay at the moment for 29,999.

    The thing is, they won’t sell. They’re not selling. But the notion that they might inflates the market as with everything.

    Yeah RX7's were a lot cheaper just a few years ago. I don't know if they shot up because Americans can buy them? I wouldn't say they are in short supply in Japan.
