    I Haven't said anything...? 🤔 A quick check tells a story. Got the reg from the tax reminder in the last picture.

    It's there, I was on the laptop when I zoomed in. It's a better looking car than the last one that just sold.

    I can't see anything bad, mileage checks out, just the usual ABS light on, corroded brake lines, rear wheel bearings etc?

    Maybe it's just me being fussy and looking for an excuse not to get too enthusiastic about buying another corrado. Lol

    Watching this one just now on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152582237432

    Car was on gumtree for 7900 until the owner had a lot of interest and so decided it was best to put in on eBay.

    Considering how rare the storm is (according to how many left website) it would seem half of them have been for sale just recently.

    I think that demonstrates that How Many Left can't be taken as Gospel. At least not for specific variants. It says there's about 10 Storms left. For a rare, special edition to lose 98% of the cars in just over 20 years is pretty unlikely.

    Most are SORN or have been in winter months... or not registered as a storm.

    If i remember correctly it was never stated on the logbook that they were Storm's, if it does state Storm someone would of updated the logbook at some point.

    So how many left would be incorrect if it's using this method.

    Yeah, sorry... It didn't come across well but I was having a dig at how many storms are sold as being rare. I believe everything on the internet... LOL

    How many left is a great guide if you look at overall numbers for most of the model range - the V5s never had 'Storm' or 'Automatic' information that just someone changing the V5 info.

    In fact the number of 'Storm' models has increased from 5 in the last year they were sold to 17 if you include the SORN'd one by 2017!

    What's more interesting is the number of cars that are SORN'd, around 66% of G60s are in that state and that's a fairly consistent value over the last 3 years. Valvers sit at the 66% mark for SORN but that includes both 1.8 and 2.0 cars so it's impossible to work out the early/late split.

    The VR6 on the other hand is far more common as around 50% are SORN'd.

    Total number of cars SORN'd has risen by 1000 over the last 8 years at the same time the number of on the road cars has dropped by 2400 and 1400 of those have been scrapped.
