I keep on hearing about these nice spec cars, but have not seen that much variety in what is on the market, only distinguishing factors I found are elite paint, carbon brakes, MSO parts. Likewise 9/10 cars I looked at were in what I would consider excellent condition. Maybe I have not been picky enough, so what am I missing?
If you must have a certain set of options (I'm guilty), and want IRIS2, HVAC screens replaced, perfect service history and no track use, then it's tough. Condition wise, you could be picky about stone chips, chin scrapes, kerb rash, tyre age, seat bolster wear etc. If you want a white car, or don't care about interior and exterior colours, it's a lot easier.
What you're missing is that some sellers think that:
1. High mileage (compared to average) car is 'special' and worth 40% more than the market says;
2. Car owes them a certain amount, either because of what they've spent on it, or how much debt they have secured on it;
3. Spouse will be happy if the car is for sale, but can't sell.
There is the odd buyer that will pay more than a car is worth to those that have done their research - people sometimes buy on impulse. A seller may get lucky, but likely won't.
I seem to have exhausted the cars currently for sale, so am waiting for new ones to come on the market. I've only seen one that was ideal (for what I want), but that failed inspection.
