All my searching it just came to nothingness...... wife just informed me she isn't keen on the car, so I ask why?

Well I like the car and how it drives and the spec, but it's rather old mannish isn't it?

Well why do you think I have been saying I want to get a coupe? But oh no you keep telling me you want 4 doors!

Out of interest which is better the coupe or the saloon?

Think I swayed her over to the dark side with the coupe by telling her the seats fold down on that as opposed to the saloon where they are fixed!

Lol yeah..... well guess I am off back to searching the classifieds and looking at what else is out there once again. Will check out the coupe and see if she is ok with that if not will be another mark or maybe the qx as she liked that at the dealers.

The most sensible coupe is the GTR
It has a decent size boot which is ideal for all day shopping at Bicester outlet centre or trips to golf club.
obviously a blast round Silverstone or the ring to destroy everything there on the way home is a given.
With prices going up on the 09 to 11 cars they are an excellent investment with bomb proof reliability
I suggest you launch one with the wife in it and then see what she says.

Gtr bit beyond us at the moment although we have looked and love it. It's one to aim for. Plan is to buy and trade up over a few years so maybe in 2/5 years we could be getting one depending on prices, but by then kids may well have come to the party so who knows?

For now we don't want to spend more than 20 and ideally 10/15 would be best as like to keep some rainy day money back.

So you haven't got kids - why not get a 370Z? Unmodified 2010 cars, with GT pack, are being advertised for as little as 12k (and sometimes less). They're an absolute bargain. Who needs 4 seats anyway?

Got nieces and we will be doing a trip around europe so think we kind of do need rear seats especially as this would be only car. 370z all day though if I were gonna run 2 cars I would agree at those prices.

Nah she wants the rear seats in case her family come to visit..... so "no we can't have a 2 seater" (unless it's a 2nd car)....

Anyway I found this... called up but it's gone would have been a no brained at that price... still might get one instead.

I think the biggest issue with the saloon in my mind at least is resale..... it seems to have been at the dealers since September... that means they can't have had much interest, so stands to reason that the saloon doesn't appeal to the masses much (as much as the coupe and other models) and so will be an acquired taste and much harder to resell.

Ideally I want something that will sell easily and will hold its price either because of already having depreciated heavily or just being that popular.

Anyway think we will take the weekend to look around and see what else is out there and then maybe think about making a decision either way.
