Tezza sale prices

Postby G-TECroscommon » Sat Jan 22, 2011 4:46 am

As above I know alot of members including myself are sick of rough altezzas for sale for about 3k, If tezzaworld has enough members who have altezzas for sale then surely we can set up a highly illegal monopoly for tezzas, if there's none for sale for extremely cheap then it wil make every owner happy including the new owners who will have faith in the cars value a few months down the line... It's just an idea I had while bored and figured it wouldnt hurt to see peoples reaction

Good idea. You need alot of owners though even the ones that wouldnt be selling to talk the cars up. You'd also need some IS200 owners to be in the group as well tp balance things out . . I like your plan though, It's evil :twisted: :twisted:

Completly agree with everything you say and being the Altezza is very rare could be done over a period of time, trouble comes when people need rid quickly to pay a bill of raise some cash for an emergency, the car is then let go for a small amount :(

The same thing happened with the GT-Fours, you can pick up a nice ST205 for £3k now which is mad as they are worth in good condtion £5-6k, this also allowed very young drivers access to the hi-powered car and resulted in insurance premiums to rise uncontroblaby affecting even old folk like me :( . Cheap car benefit only the buyer really, we all know our cars are worth more but I see it as I dont want to sell at the the mo but if I ever do I will price high (My car is worth £5,000.00 in my eyes) and do my best to present the car to justify the amount its advertised for. Saying that if there are a sudden influx of imports then like the GT-Fours we will all be in the sugar as this will knock prices overnight :(

These are great and very rare sports saloon cars and are hidden away currently, but as soon as the tuning companys start work on them the public domain become aware and then everyone wants one, this then becomes a double edged sword as demand rises and importers send over more to meet demand.

Dont know the answer to that one I'm afraid.

Kind regards

I'm all GT-Foured out now, Had 6 to date, "Beams" engined Altezza is all I need to keep me JDM, slammed of course ;-)

It was just a mad thought... But I reckon it's possible... The altezzas are just rare enough to pull it off...

not a bad idea but it will be hard to get everyone on board especially for people who need to get rid of their cars quick.

why do ye think altezzas should be worth so much. There common, mostly less than 200bhp, and there relatively small. Look at these cars, 400bhp, pure luxury and just savage in every way compared to a altezza and look at their prices. I think there over 100k new.

I dont regret buying my altezza but if I knew as much that time as now ................

I paid £5995 for my car last year from torque gt in devon ....... living in Scotland there are not many tezza's going around ..... never mind ones with the full kit and legana front bumper. Ive only seen 1 other tezza in my local area. So if i was to put my car up for sale Id be looking for more than what i paid for it and pretty sure i could get £6500 :D

I think you guys in Ireland are a bit more unlucky cos there seems to be alot of tezza's over there.

For instance if i search on auto trader there is only one altezza for sale in a 200 mile radius from me .................

If i search national ... as in the whole of Britain there are only 6 and 5 of them are auto's.

As was said, it's a double edged sword. Rare means it's a lot harder to get parts from scrapped cars. At least with it's increased popularity (and more boy racers planting them in trees) it's easier to access used parts.
I know the value of mine, and it's many multiples what I could possibly achieve selling it. Then again I'm not selling it, so I don't give a rats.. ;)

X2 :D it's just that we could make it rare again very simply... I don't really care about the price but I have noticed members complaining and thought I'd share my evilness :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I'm with moomoo on this one, they're nothing special at the end of the day - just a saloon car that looks nice really

I bought mine for around 3k cheaper than the going rate at the time for a similar spec'd car because i bought it from a lad i know, i still managed to lose around 11k in just over 2.5years.

Jap cars aren't the big thing in ireland anymore, thats why is no longer just jap fest, it's euro style as well, diesel audis & vws have taken over. Why pay big money for a 10-12yr old car thats got big mileage and high insurance and fuel costs when it's now acceptable to drive a diesel, especially when on top of the 20mpg more, you have fuel costing between 10-15cent less per litre

Only way to make big money on them now is to part them up in a dry shed for 15-20years until they become the must have modern classic, just like the ae86's, mk1 & mk2 escorts, etc
