I bet Bernie Ecclestone or Mosley was approached to see if they would pay silly money for it.

I agree its not a lot of money for Kahn, i just think the whole private reg market is overinflated thats all. And even if i had the above figure in the bank, I still wouldn't buy a plate for £400k+

Why did you buy a 335d when a 320 is just as good surely,is the car market not over inflated somewhat it boils down to personal taste and choice,you would choose not to spend you cash on a P Plate - I like them,and they are a proven investment

Its not a proven investment, its a purely speculative investment. Not even property, gold or shares are "proven" investments. The top end of private reg markets is a complete waste of money. In my view, a lot of these people have an obsession with self-identity and a P plate adds to that. Its also part of a doctrinal mentality to impress others for no apparent reason.

In terms of 320 vs 335d? Well I dont think that question really needs answering, I would have got an M3 if it already had the M-DCT. But even with cars, there's a point beyond which i would never spend more money as you begin to pay increasingly for brand/prestige/exclusivity. Without a doubt even with a 40k car a percentage of its price is for the brand/image, but that percentage is disproptionately greater with more expensive cars. And that is the reason i would not cross about 70k for a car.

I could comfortably buy any car (with cash) i want within 150k price tag immediately and if i i was 10x richer, i still would never spend more than about 70k on any single car. For instance, I would never buy a brand new Ferrari, ever.

I agree that is about choice/taste, but the question of waste also comes into it. I suppose my socialist credentials are just shining through.
