Glad you still loving the gt mate. Brakes look good. I had new discs and pads on mine a while back just stock ones but my mate runs a car spares shop so got at mates rates
We have been planning a new car since February. Estate or SUV, 180 PS approx and auto. The Corolla 2 litre Hybrid estate looked to fit the bill perfectly so we borrowed one back in July. Brilliant in town, very good on the motorway but in the Peak District on hills it was pretty uncouth when you asked for a burst of speed, not for us. I got out of the car with an aching right ankle but said nothing thinking it was me not adjusting the seat quite right but when the wife had driven it she said exactly the same thing. Then I found references to this issue on the web.Hi Klippie, did you keep your gt. mine has gone now. Gave it to my step son. He is loving it.Took delivery of Toyota Corolla 2 litre hybrid in March. Lovely car, economical and pretty quick when needed. wanted auto so am enjoying that as well.
Sad to see one sold, I still love mine. What are you moving on to? I had a similar experience recently trying to get rid of a standard fiesta. Priced below others, I had watchers but nothing solid. Wbac has gone up another £500 since then and might now be the easiest option. We're in no rush so might see where prices get too.On and off for the past year I've been looking to sell my GT I got zero interest in it..WBAC offered less than £10K at one point for a low miles 17plate GT but recently with all this nonsense going on the prices have firmed up quite a bit the last quote was £12K...just a few weeks ago I had it on Autotrader for £12.5K just one tyre kicker called about it.
So this got me thinking...I went to one of the bigger Kia dealers and asked if they were looking for stock, the sales manager was interested and bettered WBAC's price by £500...happy days and its now gone.
I've enjoyed my time with the GT its been a great car but it would seem they are not sought after on the used market, a Focus ST and the likes are much more desirable cars.
I feel I've been very lucky to get £12.5k for my car this time next year may be very different for used car prices.
Anyway goodbye to everyone...keep enjoying your GT's..!!!
Oh I have a K&N panel filter if anyone is interested.
Seconded!...I still love mine....
I can't believe how used prices have gone bonkers. I was considering an Audi A5 convertible this time last year - typically £19k - now £26k+! Wished I bought 10 - what an return on an investment!Seconded!
Took me a little while to progress from 'like' to 'love', but yes I find it difficult now to think of parting from it. One of the advantages (judging by 76 posts elsewhere) is it is not blighted with UVO (or a DCT, or an EPB...)!
Prices are good just now...but remember this will all come crashing down big style...then it will be the time to buy.I can't believe how used prices have gone bonkers.

Fortunately lock down enabled me to pay off the finance and I bought a two year service package and I'll still have another year of warranty after that so sticking with my GT for a few more years. I don't necessarily love it, but what else is out there - sporty with three doors at sensible money?
Don't even get me on SUV/Gretamobiles
