well at work the other day the finance finally came through for the guy to sell his 850R 5spd. this means i am alligble to buy it!he only wants $19,950(around$8,000US)
the car is as clean as the day it was brought, except the run up the bum it had! the damage is not bad, but it does need to b pulled out and the bumper and boot lid need to b replaced. now this is pretty easy to repair for me considring i have all the equipment(and more) to do the job.but there is the one problem...MONEY!. do you guys reckon its worth takeing out a loan to buy it? it will take 5 years to pay it off.. the car is a 97 model, by the time i own it it will be 10 years old.the 850r's go for $32,000 here so i am getting a bargin. your ideas will be very greatful to me.all i can say is i am in love with the car, but if im going to into dept i would rather by a porche 911(wouldt be as nice as the 850)

specs:
5cyl turbo 185kw
5 speed manuel
68,000klm
red,volans
tinted windows
flawless leather interior.
comes with regerstration.
been servesed regulary.

Especially a 5spd R. That's a great find. I know they're probably not as rare over there, but still. Nice find, and nice price too....even if it is damaged.

you guys just want to see me go broke! lol. but still a sure nice car to go broke over thow...it is a nice find, there arnt too many 5 spd's here but they are here. the car looks the same as the one at the top of of the 800 page except it has black volans and tinted windows. i will take some pics of it and post them. im going to talk to the bank on monday to see what the go is with getting the finance. i have to be quick other wise someone eles will snap it up. now when a customer asks about it i say " hmmm its pretty badly damaged"usally works..
just the thought of being only 18 and owning a 97' 850R 5 spd and showing it off to my freinds at school is enuf to buy it...
