Advertised prices mean very little though if you ask me.

People try their luck, then get more realistic when they see what folk are prepared to pay.

We were the second people to see the Impreza we bought and paid below the ticket price and got above book value for our trade in!

Salesman just want sales, so there are good deals to be had. This then has a knock on effect on the private seller, assuming a buyer is savvy!

No Mando, that one is a JDM FSTI currently pushing 465 horses. This one may be on the market for a while as very few folks over here have that kind of money to buy a s/h car. The sort of people who are replacing their cars are buying new ones and yes, there is a perverse logic in that but there you are. We have the cheapest cars in Europe here but after the excessive duty (called VRT - vehicle registration tax) plus 25%VAT (yes, another tax, we are loaded down with taxes in this country, seriously), the forecourt prices make them amongst the most expensive in the EU. Road tax and insurance over here remain prohibitive on older cars (because of the newer emission based road tax, older cars are really getting hammered now, approx 10% increase per annum) so used cars with 2.5 liter engines are not so easy to move. Also, a lot of the insurance companies won't even quote me (51 YO, no claims, no minus points at all except the 2 liter turbo car) and younger drivers, under 30, are paying crazy premiums on very ordinary cars. Rant over.

Along with property prices, BS has nailed it. The asking prices for s/h goods over here is unrealistic, particularly on houses but also on "not so common" cars. At the lower end of the scale though, it's amazing what you can pick up for under 2k at the moment. It will take a Subaru enthusiast to understand what that Forester is and in a country with around 4M population (larger families too), there aren't maybe so many of those around. Having said that, there is a healthy "hot car" population here.

Nice car though but I reckon 12k'ish will be the final selling price. There is a fella here on one of the forums who has a mint Hawkeye WRX wagon for sale for over a year starting at 10.5K and currently around 8K. The problem is it's a 2.5 and while many have looked, once they phone the insurance company and look up the road tax rate (1k per annum), they mostly walk away.
