He he he, welcome to Turkey Kevin.

Used cars are expensive because new cars are expensive, import duties and the like are pretty ghastly. From new, they do tend to hold value a bit better than UK as demand is higher for second hand. Do what I did, buy the car you want new and do it in the knowledge that you will drive it for the next 15 years then chuck it in a skip  ;)

Only 15 years Keith, you must be mistreating it, there's a lot of Mk2 Cortinas (rust buckets in the UK) still around out here, let alone the Renault 20's. Cars must be good here for at least 40 years ;).

Mind you they are probably like Triggers brush (only fools and horses), he had the same brush for 15 years, only had 3 new handles and 5 new heads.:D:D:D

I like the story On Mike A's blog about the scam he was involved in out in Istanbul involving new/used cars. He doesn't look like a criminal does he?:D

Charlie in the nil bar is selling a 1978 Renault 15 or 17 £650 would have been binned over here years ago.the main reason so im told is they hold there price is tax so much cheaper.
