Introducing .. the weekly car sale challenge!

Fancy scrolling through car sale sites and bagging yourself 250 tribe coins for the best find?

29w ago

We've all been there, flicking endlessly through Autotrader, or a similar site, and stumbling across some brilliant finds, and dreaming (or planning) on how to financially make it happen. I myself am guilty of doing that all too often, and as of late, it's almost become a nightly routine to set a few custom searches up to see what's out there.

So, I decided to make a challenge of it for all you wonderful DriveTribe users to display your creativity and knowledge in searching for some real bargains, with the reward of 250 tribe coins every week for the participant who manages to find the best deal. The criteria will change on a weekly basis - but just remember, the more unique, the better!

I'm looking for that ''wow'' factor, and something that will certainly give myself and everyone else on DriveTribe the ''fizz''. You're welcome to use any website out there! Apart from that, knock yourself out and post a few screenshots of the best deal you can find down below in the comments section!

The first weekly challenge is going to be a relatively easy one, just so we can get into it a little:

''What's the best sports coupe you can find for under £15,000 (or

equivalent foreign currency) that was made between 2000 and 2010?''

There's going to be plenty to choose from, so details like mileage, number of owners, concourse standard and so on, will all be factored in. Slightly more secondary things, such as insurance cost, or fuel efficiency, will be considered in some challenges, and I will mention it on weeks that they are - this week, they will not be considered, so just worry about finding the best coupe you can for under £15,000! Here's what I managed to find:

A folding metal roof, just 76,000 miles on the odometer, and with it being one of the later iterations, this E46 BM3 M3 represents a fantastic weekend car, and also a brilliant long-term investment. Their prices are slowly starting to climb as they age, and you'd be hard pressed to find something better for the money.

Now, over to you guys! The top three will be posted next Monday, along with the next challenge. If there are any duplicates that are posted, I will unfortunately have to reward it to the person who found it first. I must also mention that there's no rule in posting another example of a car that has already been entered - who says you won't find a better E46 M3 than the one I did? I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing what everyone else manages to find. Good luck!

Post your screenshots below, and let's see what you guys can find!

The winner will be announced during next week's challenge, good luck!

  • How about a mint condition Porsche 928 S4 ?

  • I’m in my element here - this is a 1993 TVR Chimera. It’s light, small, loud, and produces around 250 horsepower from a 4.0L V8 that barely fits under the bonnet. All for only £14,000. Here’s a link to the sell page: www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1302182

    • Or, if that doesn’t take your fancy, you can have a 4,2L, 385 horsepower Jaaaaaaag XK, for a mere £12,000.

  • 2003 Corvette Z06, over 400hp in an amazing car for only 16,500 dollars, has minor paint chips here and there but other than that, in great condition

    • I think this is an absolute steal at $20,000 AUD. These are incredibly sought after, and the fact that it’s so cheap, is a testament to Japanese-Australian relations when it comes to automotive imports.
