    I have a chance to buy a Murci for 200k. What do you guys think. Black/tan 2002 with 8k miles. What kind of maintenance am I looking at? How reliable are they? My 355 has run flawless. Can I expect the same?

    Murcis are rock solid machines. That is also a great price with the mileage. The 2002's were also in Km on the odometer for most, so make sure it's 8000 miles or 8000 km, and most importantly, at registration be VERY SURE you get it right otherwise it looks like odometer fraud. In 2003 they went back to Miles for good on Lambos.

    For maintenance, figure $300 ever 5000 miles for oil, and every 15,000 miles about $3000 for the 15k service. Beyond that, expect one or two sensors a year to be replaced, they are super cheap. That's about it!

    Please let me have the 411 on the deal in case you decide to pass on it.

    Murci is the only reasonably priced true blue supercar on the market today and I happen to be inloved with it, my couple cents for today.

    Last week I was going to sell my pearl yellow Murcie for $195,000 with only 1200 miles. I decided after a week to take it off the market and keep it.

    $200,000 with 8,000 miles is not the best deal around!!!

    I Agree, $200k is a good starting point for negotiation thou.

    That car on Ebay belonged to a guy who had so much trouble with it he has been posting the story on various boards. He took a real bath just to get rid of it. Do not go near that car!

    Wow am I glad I stumbled onto this thread before calling the dealership tomorrow. I saw that car on ebay and my father was VERY interested in purchasing it but I will warn him away from it now. Does anyone have any more information as to why the car was so problematic?

    If everyone can continue to talk down the worth of this car, it might become a good deal :) . At this rate I doubt the dealer will get much more than 160,000 for it , with the buyer insisting on a new clutch and that the existing problems are sorted.

    Even at $160K who really wants all the headaches? There may be other, yet unrecognized problems with that car yet to come. $160K is a lot of money just to inherit someone elses problems. Pass.

    I'm a buyer for that car at 160K. I usually don't spend over 100K, but that would be a steal, even with it's mechanical woes. Much better than a salvage title.
