Since buying my R a year and a few months ago Ive been keeping an eye on prices... like to make sure I got a good deal! Whilst the top price has come down slightly, the overall price seems to have almost stopped moving, whereas compared to two years ago when i started looking the price has moved quite a bit.

So... do you think the mk4 R has reached the point where the value will stop falling? It seems like £5k could be the lowest point for a straight one (not cat d or cat c etc)... Or so you think theyll continue to come down.

Its a bit like the B5 RS4s... the price of them has levelled out and is not moving, but then there is many more Rs compared to RS4s.

Looking through ads on ebay its also striking how many mk5 Rs are for sale compared to mk4 Rs, hopefully this will help keep the price up too!!

What are your thoughts?

I know what you mean. You get the odd dog at below 5k but I think bottom price for a straight car is 5.5k

I got mine cheaper than that anyway!

Seems like a good investment then! I've noticed prices seem to be staying put too which is nice to know, although wont be selling mine.

Prices will start to stabilise now I feel. The more used and abused ones are, the more it'll help keep the good ones staying a higher price.

But end of the day, it's a car so go and enjoy it

I still personally think you need to spend £7K+ to get a really good MK4 but it's the age old supply and demand thing. As the R was only made for 1 year, supply will become more and more limited as more of them get crashed or broken for spares.

The MK4 R has the same potential classic status as the MK1 GTI & Corrado VR6 imo. The only 3 cars that totally stood out from the rest of the range at the time.

In 5 years they should qualify for classic car insurance...roll on £150 insurance!
Some companies offer it this year! 10 year old!

If the government was still running their scrappage scheme, the Mk4 would now be eligible. Just sayin'

Prior to purchasing the R the only other alternative for me was the Focus ST and funnily enough I was looking last night at their values which are practically at Mk4 levels - just goes to show what the depreciation is on Fords.
