    A bit expensive
    It seems to be one of the last Silvias made.
    And very low mileage. A car in this condition would be very expensive in Japan.

    But not that expensive

    Its a good example, but they can't seriously expect to get more than about ?18k for it....

    The last ones were made in 2001, though sales continued in Oz until 2002.

    Ok. Thought the last was -02 and this one was sold -03.
    Then this must have been made -01 and sold -03

    When I was searching for a car in Japan, I saw that the very low mileage, high-grade (5) and late-model S15s was sheit-expensive.
    They are pretty rare, especially if it's not pewter or white.

    I think ?18k seems about right for this one.
    They could probobly get away with ?20k being a Nissan dealer and all

    That was more than I knew
    But you have to think about that the S15 has held it's value very good.
    And not to mention freight, VAT, ESVA and so on. So I still think around ?18-?20k would be a fair price for this S15 pending if you're a Nissan dealer or not

    Have to agree with Yako here. That car would have been absolutely stupid money at auction. When I was bidding for mine late platers were going straight through my ceiling of getting the car into UK and on the road of 15k on a regular basis. So for them to get it and then bring it in and want to make main dealer profit 18-20 would seem about right. Mad but about right.
