This 3-year-old 04/54 Honda Accord 2.2iCDTI Executive Tourer was the facelift model, but had done 124,000 so sold for just £5,700.

A very pretty metallic blue 04/54 Volvo V50 2.0D S with 102k miles came through close behind and sold for £6,100.

A pair of Hyundai Trajet 2.0GSI autos were separated only by their pedigree. The ex-Motability 67k mile 2001Ymade £2,350, while the 57k mile unwarranted 2001X reg in the General section sold for just £875.

Skoda Octavias were very strong. £9,800 for a 22k mile 1.9TD Ambiente DSG estate, £11,400 for a 5k mile 06 2.0TDI 140 Elegance and a strong £14,550 for a 2k mile 07 2.0TDI 120 Laurent & Klement DSG estate.

On the other hand I’ve never seen a running MGF sell for as little as £1,425. This one was a 96P with 51,000 warranted miles.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted.
