Big Stuff Behind Book at Auction

Mon, 30 Jul 2007
It’s not just big 4x4s that are on the slide now. It’s anything big, even diesels.

A 75k mile 04 Range Rover TDV6 was about right at £17,500. A 38k mile 04 XC90 SE D5 auto was about £825 behind at £19,000. A 39k mile 04 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 Limited was about £500 behind an already low estimate at £8,250.

But a top bid of £33,750 was £2,000 under for a 49k mile 04 reg SL500, and selling at just £25,900 a 35k mile 2005/55 BMW 730d Sport was £3,000 less than trade book.

The trade is now very wary of anything with a reputation. Shortages of some parts for Rover 75s put them off a 61k mile 04 reg CDTI Connoisseur Touring that sold for £5,400. While £5,350 was all anyone could really expect for a 99k mile Audi A4 1.8T 163 with the dreaded Multitronic box.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means provisional bid. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘dmg’ means damaged. ‘d/r’ means damaged/repaired.

Audi A4 1.8T 163 Multitronic, 2002/52, 99k miles £5,350s
