I can only imagine he doesn't want to sell it!
Can't be many CAT D W12's out there so rarity value maybe.

Probably as rare as people prepared to pay that sort of money!

Seriously, like most things, it's worth what someone is prepared to pay and it only will get bought once. I guess if it is just what someone is looking for then it will go.

However, even for a newbie like me, for that money I could have that lush S8 on here and that's where my fifteen grand would go.

My thoughts exactly...."Mmmm, let me see, a near perfect D3 S8 or a Cat D W12?"

Why thanks! I can sell her to you for less than fifteen grand (not that much less) and save you some money

I'd love to mate! However it seems like getting an S8 as my first ever A8 would just be showing off!

Do you do finance?!
