For the 05 plated typhoon with tints, FPV steering wheel and FPV floor mats I was quoted over $60K(on road), but I have decided to buy a showroom stock car, made Dec 04, unfortunately with the inherit clutch fiasco.....
I got the same options as above, plus decals all thrown in for the total price of $54K - a saving of $6k plus dollars !!!!!!
Before delivery of the vehicle the new clutch assembly will be installed, computer remapped and car will be as per the current 05 models.....
Is this a good price??????
Please forward your comments and let me know what you think???
Also I am over 35 yrs old, what can I expect to pay for insurrance and who is the best insurrer for these type of vehicles????
Mate that sounds like a pretty fair price to me, and with the new clutch and remap they are a fantastic car, and I think if your going to keep it more than 3 years you have to come out in front at both ends as I don't think that an 04 registered in 05 will be any cheaper than an 05 as long as its looked after. I have a second one coming and it was a lot cheaper than 013 and has Brembos etc. Mate you did well, enjoy the ride.
