    It's on Pistonheads. Silver with black, 2005 facelift model, 45k miles, £19.9k. Looks a good buy to me, with a PDI, service and warranty from a respected specialist. If it was May it would fly out, but in December it might be snapped up for even less.

    It's old and its going to give problems cash wise, but if your ok with that and you like the car go for it!

    If it's the silver one on PH from Shiltech it is a 2002 model and they have swapped the front nose for a face-lift, you can tell also by the rear end, it doesn't have the face-lift bumper. It may of had a front end shunt and they decided to update it at the time of the repair or maybe they just wanted to update it...............Still; looks very nice though.

    In that case I stand corrected. I'd not realised it was an older car just with a new nose cone. If I were looking for a Spyder it would have to be an original updated facelift version, built in 2005 or later. I've had two of the earlier ones (2002/3) and personally wouldn't go back to that version as the lack of chassis rigidity was an issue for me on those.

    Sounds like my old Spyder, early model but with the facelift front bumper which I think is a good combination.
