Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 6 December

  Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 6 December If you're searching for a classic prancing horse at a (relatively) knock-down price, the Ferrari F355 Berlinetta F1 could be for youIt’s hard to say why the remaining three failed to sell but the pair that did had been refurbished and were finished in bright colours. Both were also manuals and had low mileage.

"It’s worth spending more for a well-cared-for C6 to avoid coming to grief.” Not our words but those of the top techs at Wolsey House Motors, a Citroën specialist and purveyor of fine examples of the sumptuous C6 of 2006-12.

  Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 13 December For just £4750 you could be riding high and spraying dirt in a mighty Toyota LandcruiserSo it’s worth a look, along with the other five or so 4x4s that experts say you should also check out. The thing is they know an old ’cruiser can be trouble, but to misty-eyed enthusiasts, the model can do no wrong.

The two that did were a 1997 Spider manual with 25,000 miles that made £72,000 and a 1996 Berlinetta manual with 16,000 miles and some sought-after options that fetched £92,000. It’s hard to say why the remaining three failed to sell but the pair that did had been refurbished and were finished in

So with their advice ringing in our ears, we’ve ignored the 90,000-mile 2006-reg 2.7 HDi V6 Exclusive we found offered at £2750, passed quickly by the gaggle of similar motors huddled around £3500 and instead stopped for a closer look at this £5995 example.

It’s a 2009 car, so a little younger than the rest, with a reasonable 80,000 miles. Better still, the trade seller has gone to the trouble of listing every service, including mileage, date carried out and type (major or minor). ‘First to see will buy!’ is the confident claim.

Looking at those services, the car’s black leather interior, immaculate (at least in the pictures) black bodywork and gleaming 18in alloys, and imagining the near-silence of its double-glazed cabin, we can believe it.

Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 17 January

  Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 17 January It doesn't like wet weather, but for an icy £9995, a 2012-reg BMW M135i is a no-brains buySo it’s all looking good, and in case you’ve forgotten, its 3.0-litre straight six produces 315bhp and 332lb ft, enough to launch it from rest to 62mph in 4.6sec. Those rear tyres take a hammering, so the first thing to check is how much tread is left. In the wet, you might wish you were at the wheel of a four-wheel-drive Volkswagen Golf R. Otherwise, the rear-drive M135i is the car to have.

Citroen C6 is a shapely thing with a perky V6, but be sure to check for safety before you buy . Need I remind you that my Kitten does , in fact, have four wheels – one in each corner! Your Jaguar with extra chrome is a far cry from Daimlers like the SP 250, so I think you’ll find that mine’s more interesting.

But safety first, so best we recall WHM’s tips for checking over these old French fancies. First off is the coolant system whose thermostat housing can crack and steel pipes corrode and leak. The automatic gearbox is another of those so-called ‘sealed-for-life’ affairs that should actually have had the occasional fluid change. The C6’s trick suspension can store up all sorts of trouble, including corroded pipes and pipe ends. We’ll check it sits level, too.

The body is a combination of steel and aluminium, so galvanic corrosion will be on our radar. Fingers crossed that the C6’s party trick, its dynamic rear spoiler, rises and falls. And then it’s just a question of checking that all the interior bells and whistles work.

Datsun Stanza 1.8 5dr auto, £6000: Anything that survived the great 2009 scrappage massacre is worth our attention. Even this 1982 Datsun Stanza, with T-shaped auto shift lever and rich velour upholstery. The spacious, two-owner hatch has done only 28,000 miles and is immaculate.

  Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 28 February Quirky cars that won't break the bank is the theme for this week's picks. First on the list? A £3000 Audi A2The UK got very few of the economy-busting 1.2-litre diesel versions. Instead, buyers could choose from 1.4 and 1.6-litre petrols, and a 1.4-litre diesel in two outputs. Today, it’s the 1.4 petrol and lower-powered 1.4 diesel (they each produce 74bhp) that appear to have weathered best. The direct-injection system in the 1.6 petrol can be troublesome, ditto the dual-mass flywheel in the 89bhp 1.4 diesel. This engine’s turbo suffers carbon build-up, too.

Ford S-Max 2.5T Titanium, £4500: Before SUVs arrived, families used to travel in things called people carriers. Here’s one that’s even more unusual for being powered by the 2.5-litre five-cylinder petrol engine from the Focus ST, enabling it to accelerate from rest to 62mph in just 7.4sec.

Mazda CX-5 2.2TD SE-L AWD, £5495: The CX-5 was a minor revelation at launch. Here was an SUV that could ride and handle as well as it looked. Most were front drive but here’s a rare 4x4 example: a one-owner 2013 car with 109,000 miles and full history. Handy if winter sets in.

Seat Leon Cupra 280 Sub8, £14,395: Sub8 references the model’s sub-eight-minute dash around the Nürburgring in 2014. Seat created three Sub8 performance packs, but it’s not clear which one this 51,000- mile 2015-reg five-door comes with. Either way, it’ll do 0-62mph in 5.9sec.

Auction watch

Range Rover 4.0 HSE auto: The P38 Rangie of 1994-2002 still looks reasonably fresh, and to think it was the successor to the original launched back in 1970. Here’s one we saw pass through auction recently: a 2001-reg 4.0 HSE with 74,500 miles. It made £3282. Good Mk1s make much more but we’d have been happy with this P38 with its 4.0-litre V8, leather trim and electric sunroof. This engine is a safer bet than the 4.6 (it has cylinder liner problems), although both can suffer with dodgy cooling systems. We’d have checked that this example was sitting nice and level, too.

Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 3 January

  Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 3 January Hot hatches rule the roost in this week's picks, exemplified by the racy, 200bhp Renault Clio RSThe racier Cup version has 15% stiffer dampers than its predecessor and much stiffer springs than the standard 200. It’s 36kg lighter, too, and has a quicker steering rack. We found a 2010-reg with 62,000 miles and full service history for £4000.

Max Adams: I, on the other hand , don’t have a family, but I think I’ve gone for the far more grounded choice. The Leon is the best buy at this price level because you get MP: Think of their little faces as you introduce them to their first roundabout in the Civic Type R.

Future classic

Toyota Yaris 1.8 GRMN, £17,995: Never mind hybrid this and EV that, we’ll look back on this period as the age of forced induction, which is why the Yaris GRMN is so interesting. It takes a slightly different route, eschewing a turbo for a supercharger – which means it thrives on revs and sounds fantastic. It looks good, too, with its race-inspired styling. Sadly, engine and bodykit can’t disguise its slightly off-the-pace handling, but 10 years from now that small detail may not trouble enthusiasts keen to bag the few remaining examples of the 80 GRMNs that landed here.

Max Adams: The 1970s was a good time for Reliant. Some may not believe it, but it was actually the second-biggest British-owned car maker at the time. It had bought out its closest rival and was making all sorts of interesting models to appeal to new customers, including three-wheelers, vans, sports coupés and even this little Kitten, from 1976.

Mark Pearson: I think you’ll find the 1970s was also a good time for Woolworths, and look at how things turned out for them. Well, I’m sorry but your pathetic plastic contraption is no match for my Jag…er, Daimler. It’s a thing of beauty, for one, with a thumping V8. It’s got power and performance and it’s wonderfully luxurious. And you can add to that unmatched ride and refinement. Only 86,000 miles on this 1998 one and years younger than your jumped-up Robin.

  Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 14 February At a shade under 80,000 miles, this Mk2 Ford Focus RS looks a bargain for £15,500. Just be sure to check for hidden wear on the inside of the tyresIt so happens that a colleague has been considering selling his Mk2 Focus ST that he bought 12 months ago. Not a chance. Prices have nosedived and his plan to come out with his shirt on is in tatters.

You can pick up one of the first R8s for under £40,000, but make sure it's not going to cost more down the line. While you’re poking about, check the outer radiators for leaky seams. The clutch lasts around 20 ,000 miles so we ’d pay Were they allowed to start the engine, it would have been wise to

MA: Now look here, Pearson. Need I remind you that my Kitten does, in fact, have four wheels – one in each corner! Your Jaguar with extra chrome is a far cry from Daimlers like the SP 250, so I think you’ll find that mine’s more interesting.

MP: I know which one of these two I’d rather take on a long journey. Or a short one, come to that. Your Kitten is nothing but a sour puss.

MA: Très drôle.

Verdict: The Daimler’s chrome wing spats could be hiding rust, so I’ll take the glassfibre Kitten.

Tastefully conservative looks and a toasty interior are two reasons to plumb for a second-hand Volvo S60 R. A £5750 asking price is anotherAn unyielding ride and an outright shortfall in performance blunted the S60 R’s appeal when new. However, performance enthusiasts regard the model more fondly today, delighting in its rarity, charismatic engine note and comfortable, feature-rich cabin.
