Wow. I’ve not heard of many owners making a profit after so long.
6 - 8 years ago price were at the bottom.
I would expect to make at least a £4k - £5k profit on mine if I sold now.
I originally bought new at £25k 19 years ago, and part exchanged after I put 130k miles on it after 12 years for a mint one, and another 70k miles later.
Am I one of the few who have done over 200k in these plastic sh*t boxes, and its still worth around 70% of its original cost.
The investment is not losing depreciation, but keeping their value stable, if I had bought an MX5, MR2, MGTF etc at the time they would all be worthless
