Just put a deposit down on an '03 TF 160 VVC, trading in my 105+ ZR against it too.

Had a dilemma of choosing between the ZR 160 and the TF, but the good thing is that my job location is moving so it'll be easier to get the train to work and I can enjoy a less practical car on the weekends!

Waiting to hear back when I can go collect it. Can't wait!!!

If you don't mind me asking what did they give you for your 105 ?cheer's.
7k..

egad. Seems bad at first thought, but I did get a fairly sizable discount off the TF. Plus my ZR having 20k on the clock on a year old makes a bit harder to haggle.

just traded my o3 zr+ atomix se in with 27,000 for a old shape but 54 plated zr 160 in black....got 7500 for old one and 160 was 8995.........not bad methinks....
A 54 plate ZR160 for £8995 :blink2: :blink2:

Shows how much its depreciated as only 5 months ago it was worth £14-15000 new

Surely this can't be right, can it?? £5-6000 loss in 5 months???

Did you buy it from a dealer or private?? Has it got mega mileage or is it an insurance category car??

Are you sure its a 160.......LOL

Also, the garage only made £1495 for swapping a 03 plate 27000miles ZR105 for a 54 plate ZR160??

How does that work out? If you had gone for a 54 plate 105 or even 120 the figure would be even lower.

Also if they bought it off you for £7500, that means they'll at least have to sell it for £8500 to make decent profit on it.

Very good deal, don't make sense though.

I think the garage have made a mistake.....LOL

Although you may be right with the mk 1 depreciation as opposed to mk2

they had an o3+ on forcourt for 7995.... mine had just had its 2ndyr service had 4 new tyres on and was mint plus its the atomix which has a small premium over the norm 105+ (according to glass anyway) so ion reality they have nothing to do with the car to resell it other than clean it basically so if it was up for 8g they still make 500 squiddlys......
