  • The DoneDeal Thread 2021

    So can this be the new DoneDeal thread?? I assume the last one got too big.

    So it caused havoc on Octane but if people use what cop-on they can afford it should work.
    No bad mouthing cars for sale. PM anyone who looks like they are about to spend cash on a known lemon.
    Slagging stupid or funny ads is a must.
    But most of all this thread is for sharing cars that someone on here should own for all our sakes.

    Hard to believe that thread was running for nearly 8 years and in November 2022 this site will have been up and running for 10 years.

        I do like this V8 but suspect that it might be too refined - is there any way to make it burble? https://www.donedeal.ie/cars-for-sal...06-22/27148890 NDhiNjk2OTZmZTA3ODVhZDc1OTRmZjg5NzcwMDFkNmVcvXYyak GbQRbqFcDgFXuQaHR0cDovL3MzLWV1LXdlc3QtMS5hbWF6b25h d3MuY29tL2RvbmVkZWFsLmllLXBob3Rvcy9waG90b18xNjk5Mj EyODV8fHwxM by peter mitchell, on Flickr

            Whenever I click the link for Merc CLs I am way off the price - sometimes way too high, other times way too low!

              Any V8 with a little exhaust fettling will sound nice.

              I drove a 2007 or 2008 CL500 with the older 5.5 motor for a few weeks around 4 or 5 years ago and it was a beautiful GT car. That one with the newer turbocharged engine should be a great balance of power and economy.

                Sounds like a good solution. Yes, I'm tempted alright, just have to man-math the road tax into my excel - if I assume €2,400 less depreciation each year, it all works

                  Was this higher or lower than you anticipated?

                            I'd say the reason it's not sold at that price is lack of V5 and the issues around Brexit, otherwise the price is very good in my opinion.

                              Yeah I'd imagine the missing V5 form will put people off.

                              It can be hard enough at the best of times to get stuff from the DVLA in Wales,
                              wouldn't fancy trying to get paperwork from them now though.
