Its nice when you can spend a bit of money on a car knowing its not money down the drain though, the way prices are i could sell my activa now for less than i paid for it last year with no tax or ticket and a suspect dead turbo and many other big issues.

I've now done so twice in the past and again, in view of the foregoing, I may do some more...

As you say Chris, between us all, we have them pretty well sussed now...

Shame the accumulated knowledge wasn't available a few years back. many lost their lives simply because of weepy rams and the cost of their replacements :cry:

According to that site, there are many more V6's still on the road...


We would be quite lost without you Jim :lol:

Indeed, its why our first Activa was traded in due to a leaky rear ram. It doesnt seem to have seen the road much since, not going by the DVLA site anyhow - which suggests its still resting on SORN somewhere.

Do you know how many V6s were sent to the UK Jim?

Looking back at the figures, the Activa was in considerably higher numbers than the V6 until fairly recent years.

What is odd is that despite other information proving over 1000 Activas were UK bound, the numbers from that site never exceeded 800 ...

Wow! That is low! :shock:

I hope that prices do rise as at present they do seem to be at rock bottom. I've spent a fair amount on my Activa since buying it to keep it on the road - at present I wouldn't get anywhere near that amount back! Shame really, as this would put many people off of them.

They're not economical, they're not overly 'WOW' fast, they're complicated to Joe Public and can be expensive to fix. For some more money, you could buy a V6 that is more user friendly, economical and faster. Has the V6 noise too! :D BUT, you obviously don't get the suspension! Unfortunately this puts many off and it's us 'enthusiasts' that end up buying them! Hopefully as time goes on, the the public and also the classic car world will recognise them and then prices can escalate.

Meanwhile, keep Activa'ing! :D

...I believe that there were just 440 V6s sold in the UK, Chris.

Yes, that is what I was getting at either, many will be put off spending on them as the money won't be seen again. Its the same with most cars though really, putting in a new clutch or a cambelt doesn't increase their value, might make them more desirable but not necessarily more valuable.

I think we have all spent on our Activas to keep them going and get them to how they should be or somewhere near. I will certainly be spending a lot more on mine as the time goes on.

Franklin, it would seem the V6 is the town car and the Activa is the motorway mile muncher - MPG wise that is how they are suited :lol:

These low numbers have certainly got me thinking, we will all have to cherish our Activas that bit more now 8-)

Ah, a very misleading site! Why does it need so many names for the same car?!

So thats plus 66 then, we are doing well :lol:

215 UK Activas registered then, with 65 of those being on SORN, still low but closer to what I originally thought. Andrew must have about 8-10 of those :lol:

...just spotted a near sister Activa to Jim's and I's (all bar a slight colour difference)!
Red (Crimson colour?) , leather, and winter pack. :shock: 8-)

eBay Link

Beautiful mileage too at 65,000 miles...just a shame about that back bumper with the fire damage! :shock: :o

Shame it's a Cat C though. :cry:

It's only down the road (well, not too far!).

Someone will be getting a bargain and a half if they can get it for £200! :D

It looks like it could be a lovely example once it's been done, and that mileage is lovely too.

I hope someone buys it and it doesn't get puggerised. :(
