Im on autotrader, ebay, gumtree, preloved, every day of the week haha

Good luck!

But yeah, the 5-door D4D is still going for silly money - They were only made for about 2 years so they are not as many floating around as the other models.

The 3-door is a lot less rare, but is basically a 2-seater car unless your passengers are really keen at yoga or something :lol: (One thing I do kinda miss going to a 5-door is the hilarity of my 2 friends (One who's nearly 6ft and the other who is a dead ringer for one of the hairy bikers...) getting into the back seats :lol2:)

If you don't need the distance driving, the 1.0 is fine TBH - It's almost as cheap to run as the D4D and can be bought for a lot less as there're loads of them. Another plus is they don't have any of the EGR/soot problems of the D4D, and is surprisingly peppy if you're not averse to revving it up a bit (Very typical japanese obsessed-with-revs engine )

The 1.3 is okay but doesn't really do anything better than the 1.0 or D4D and is all round more expensive.

I do think the D4D is the best of the three and is worth the extra effort to obtain (I may be slightly biased ), but only if there is a regular motorway, hilly or fast A-road component of its regular use or it will need extra maintenance to keep it running well.

without a doubt the 1.4 d4d is the best version. but still soo expensive. another thing the car is only going to be used for school runs and weekly shopping, maybe once a month a 50 mile trip.

with the first time driver the insurance is going to quite high. I don't mind if its the 1.0 or the 1.3. advantage in both 1.0 cheaper insurance,tax, 1.3 a bit more umpff!.

To get a 5 door round here is hard. there are plenty of 3 doors, but hardly no one shows any interest. one V reg did pop up. 1.0 130k. he wanted £850. was very rusty underneath, he sold it for 740 on ebay and is now being exported to south africa.

I missed out on in the local paper 1.0 02 reg 5 door 40k was on for £1500 sold for £1300, only rang the day after the advert was put on, Nevermind hey!

The one on auction was taken off...

just got to keep looking. :bookworm:
