    Clio 182 or Mk3 200? Both are loads of fun and easy enough to DIY mod. I sold a Megane 265 to keep the Clio 200 Megane's are silly fast for daily duties though. Mine gave me nostalgia of my old evo5.

      Speaking to a mate of mine who sold a mint E3 for huge money (to me who remembers these being a max $20k car LOL). New group of people buying imports is <30yo overseas student who has plenty of money to burn. Paying $50k for an old Lancer is nothing when your other car is a MacLaren.

            This is not really in the "daily driver" category, but I'm wondering about early Gallardos that are now 15 or so years old and are the cheapest Lamborghinis on the market these days. They seem to be at $130-150k now; is that likely to be the bottoming out of their depreciation curve?

              Yes, been noticing that with Gallardos myself for a long time. Think that's about the base of the market for them too.

              Easy to play this game for a weekender. Far harder to do it for a daily.

                  Gallardos have gone up. They were nudging $100k for early autos.
