Honda Coupe 3.0 for sale 😭😭😭

Unfortunately I am going to have to let my Coupe go due to family circumstances . I have decided to keep the Elysion so V6 power is still available!!

My Coupe is a 2001 model, Y reg, with just over 93k on the clock. Might increase slightly. Everything works including the aircon which was "blown up" last year. Original Bose radio system, unmolested. 

Green, ivory leather interior, original floor mats and carpets, with very little rust, none on the arches,  standard wheels and good tyres. It is a two owner car including myself, I have had it about six years. It is MOT for a couple of months but I will put it through its ticket when sold.

Got all the usual stuff like heated seats, electric driver seat adjustment, aircon, steering wheel radio and cruise controls.

I have done the maintenance on the car, including gearbox flushes , over the years...New brakes/ disks etc, all filters changed a short while ago.

There are a few spares to go with it . 

Pictures can be seen in the appropriate threads, haven't anything recent but I will put something up here if any interest.

Not sure what it's worth but if anyone on here,  or their friends, want it then £1750 I think would be fair.

Bad points

The paint on the rear bumper, small area, wants blowing in plus there are a few scrapes on bumper corners ( not mine !), odd couple of small dents commensurate with its age !!

The cambelt was changed in 2017, now has about 30k on it so the new owner may want to change it on a time basis.

Tempting, especially at that price!

Indeed! If I could shift the newest Aerodeck quickly i'd consider the swap for this, but I doubt I can get anything like what i've spent back and get it sold in time ☹️

A real shame you've got to sell it mate, hopefully it goes to somebody who will continue to take good care and keep it going 🤞

Wrong colour, engine and transmission for me sadly. Had a vague embryo of an idea but it won't work with that combo for me.

I could live with that 😍

Are you actually wanting another car to replace it though 🤔 Is it just down to the coupe not being the most practical that you're letting it go?

I wouldn't be opposed to negotiating a swap at all, although without trying to sound like a tyre kicker i'm quite picky with what I want from a coupe, just because of having wanted a v6 forever i've got an extensive list of hopes and dreams now 😂 

I don't want you to think im being difficult about it and messing you about if I didnt go through with it ☹️

I hadn't really thought I would need to let the Coupe go but I needed an estate again..hence Volvo V60 but I am not sure that will be a solution to my requirements and I may just push that on,  once I have finished it to my satisfaction....so an Aerodeck or Tourer is a possibility. 

Regarding the V6, well yes, I could do a negotated swap......as to your "requirements " as a "tyre kicker " read picky ?? 🤣🤣🤣  ( me too !! ) you just need to ask !!!! What is it you need to know ?

Having done (and also NOT done) some swaps in my time, one thing i can say for certain is that both parties will need to be happy before the swap (whether that includes a cash adjustment either way or not) happens. If one party isn't happy with the swap being offered, it ain't gonna happen!

I know this sounds like common sense and i'm pretty sure both of you realise this as well but it's always nice to double-check before you get too deeply involved/invested - ultimately if you get to the viewing with potential to do the swap that will be the final crunch time. If it doesn't live up to expectations on either side, walk (or should i say drive) away.

Without wishing to put words in Petes mouth, i'm fairly sure he'd say the same or at least, similar. ;) :D

I just don't want their to be hard feelings at the end of it, money can be that way for leaving people feeling sour :( End of the day i'm not out to make money from the Aerodeck and at that price I know Pete's not out to make money out of the v6, I paid over the odds for that Aerodeck so i'll be losing money regardless on the car 🤷‍♂️
I have spent a considerable amount on a great many upgrades and service items though, to the point where there's very little left needs doing - all of which I can talk you through completely 😁

Best way to do it would probably to just meet up with the cars? I don't mind the trip in the 'deck, the downside being that it's in dry storage until march 1st

Mostly i'm picky about MOT history, could even say superstitious. I have a rule not to buy cars with incomplete or messy MOT histories, mostly out of preference more than worry as you can usually figure out what happened to make the inconsistencies - also it's a good deterrent for me wanting to buy every nice car I see 😂 The only car i've bought with an incomplete MOT history was the car that threw its timing belt after 300 miles, KOV. Went against my own personal rule to buy that car and that happened, which since then has just had me double down on that rule.
I've seen several v6's among other cars that i've been tempted by since but I always take that as my sign not to go for one, call it crazy but its seemed to be the case that all of them have had gaps or inconsistencies in the history so I made the call not to go for them 🤷‍♂️

Last year my Civic had an MOT cock up as well, which at the time really upset me and still bothers me today even though most people wouldn't care less - it had a double MOT in 2023, passed both times but they were within a month of eachother because one shouldn't have been done. Same with my crown vic, because of me being slow getting around to doing stuff it will now show a failed MOT in 2023 and no subsequent pass until 2024, something which will now forever bother me about it :(

My Coupe has a complete mot history....

Only failed once, with a rear fog light in 2017...which I am sure was working when it went in...I think it was discussed on here at the time !!

When it got a rear brake pad thin advisory it got new disks and pads 😄😄
