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.

Welcome to our five used dream machines of 2020, leading with this, the first-generation Porsche Panamera. There are stacks of diesels around and terrific value they are, too, but as oil-burners continue to get the cold shoulder, how about a petrol one? A rare GTS caught our eye. Based on the naturally aspirated 4.8 S but with more power and torque (424bhp and 383lb ft) for 0-62mph in 4.5sec, sharper steering and tweaked suspension, it’s possibly the best Panamera in the old-model line-up and slots between the 4S and Turbo.

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.

Buying tips include checking the PDK gearbox sump for oil leaks and, on air-suspended cars such as our find, that the car rises to the correct height on start-up. A coffee spill can disable the central switch control, so check everything works. If you’re at all uncertain, a Porsche dealer will, for around £200

Citroen C6 is a shapely thing with a perky V6, but be sure to check for safety before you buy . 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

Our find is a 2012/12-reg with just 46,000 miles, and ‘one lady owner’. (Surely, that’s sexist. I mean, are we saying ladies don’t know how to give a car a proper workout?) Anyway, it sounds like a good ’un, especially since it has full Porsche service history and is stacked to the roof with options. It’s £32,950 compared with an original new price of £91,000, so not a bad saving.

It’s a pre-facelift model but more important, being a post-2011 4.8, it’s likely to be free of the bore wear issues that afflicted earlier engines.

Used first-generation Panameras like this are tempting old things but very specification and colour sensitive. Our example, in white with upgraded 20in alloy wheels and full leather interior, ticks all the boxes.

  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.

Aston Martin Vantage 4.3 V8, £23,995: With the new Bond film slated for release this April, why not play the part with this cheap-as-(gambling) chips Vantage? It’s a 2006-reg with a highish 82,000 miles but also a full service history courtesy of main dealers and reputable specialists.

Jaguar F-Type V8 Supercharged R, £31,980: The SVR is faster but try finding one, which is why we’ve settled for this R. It’s a 2014-reg with 80,000 miles, one owner and full Jaguar service history. It looks mint, in fact almost as good as it did the day it drove out of the showroom as a £92,000 car.

  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.

Volkswagen Golf R, £13,995: One of the best hot hatches ever for less than £14,000. That’s the price of this 2015/15-reg R manual with 60,000 miles. It has full service history but, as always, we’d scrutinise the service book and workshop receipts to check exactly how full.

Bentley Continental GT V8 S, £59,950: The best Continental yet, we declared at the model’s launch. Our find is a 2014-reg with 35,000 miles, for sale by a top dealer at around half what it cost new. The 2300kg coupé does 0-62mph in just 4.5sec. If you have to ask what the economy is…

Mercedes-Benz S600: Old luxo barges always look mouth-watering until you pause to consider their running costs. But be brave: this 2003-reg S-Class had done just 71,000 miles when it went under the hammer, and although there’s no mention of it having a full service history, it appears to have had a fettle of some sort most years. Equipment included heated and cooling front and rear leather seats, a TV, a fridge and sat-nav. It made £3816.

  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.

The S600 was powered by a 5.5-litre bi-turbo V12 producing 490bhp and today is a collector’s item of sorts. Whatever, this one looks like it was a bargain.

Future classic

Alpina Z4 Roadster S, £13,500: Before BMW launched the Z4 M, Alpina snuck in with its Roadster S. It’s powered by the hand-built 3.4-litre straight six from the Alpina B3 S, producing 300bhp for 0-62mph in 5.1sec. It’s fitted with an uprated six-speed gearbox and suspension. Our find, a 2004-reg with 84,000 miles but little mention of service history, has the desirable Lux pack comprising leather, xenon lights and 19in wheels. We’d check for leaky dampers, the battery warning light (the alternator is exclusive and a replacement is hard to find) and a failed head gasket.

Clash of the classifieds

Brief: Find me a great slice of American pie for no more than £8000.

Chevrolet Corvette, £6900

Ford Thunderbird, £7995

Max Adams: Ford’s premier personal luxury car was quite a thing when it came out, although I’ll admit my example doesn’t quite have the shine it once had back in ’65.

Mark Pearson: Everyone’s idea of the all-American muscle car, my wonderfully proportioned ’78 Corvette drips style. It’s a drive-in diner on wheels and worth the entrance fee for its 5.7-litre V8 burble alone. To be honest, you could plant one in your front room and just stare at it: it’s so long and narrow and the driver sits somewhere back there over the rear wheels. And will you look at those wheels!

Buy them before we do: Second-hand picks for 29 November

  Buy them before we do: Second-hand picks for 29 November Honda's CR-Z has plenty of head-turning ability with a nifty look. Cover the usual bases if you want a good oneOf course, this would be forgiven were the CR-Z an economy champ but the fact is that in Autocar’s hands it returned no more than 43mpg. But never mind. What the CR-Z lacks in outright pace and economy it makes up for with engaging handling characterised by strong grip and minimal body roll. Just don’t imagine you can let the whole family experience it: it’s a four-seat coupé but the rear cabin is a real squeeze.

They fold down, too, but so arranged there’s space for only a couple of largish bags. It also has full service history but has done 110,000 miles so we ’d be dipping the oil every other day. Like the regular Zetec S, it sits 10 mm lower on stiffer springs and has meatier steering. It’s fun and economical

11 January 2019. If you’ve got around £15,000 to £20,000 and a yen to spend it on a Cayman, go for a second -generation 987-series one (2009-12) – the standard model with the 2 .9-litre flat six (Gen 1 cars had a 2 .7) producing 265bhp. It’s a great improvement over the Gen 1 and better, even, than a Gen 1

MA: The Corvette is a sports car in the loosest of terms, whereas mine is a supreme barge in every sense. It even has a Cruise-O-Matic automatic gearbox and an even bigger 6.4-litre engine.

MP: Your Thunderbird looks a little, er, raw, Max. My car you could use every day, so long as you had access to an oil well and weren’t going far. Its shapely curves are glassfibre, too, and my handsome brute even has independent rear suspension.

MA: Mine has sophistication. You think Audi was first with sweeping tail-lights? Think again. The Thunderbird had sequential rear lights back in ’65.

MP: Hmm, Thunderbirds are go although, looking at yours, not going very far, I should think...

Verdict: Cor, what a ’Vette. I’ll take it.
