New model TT makes list at auction today

Fri, 12 Oct 2007
Audi dealers will tell you TTs are in short supply. There’s a long waiting list. Which explains why this repossessed 11k mile 07 2.0TFSI (with leather) made very nearly what you’d pay for a new one. Now, of course, it could have been run to £24,700 by a trader working for an Audi dealer, just to make sure none slipped through the net too cheaply. But it’s the first new model TT I’ve seen at open auction so we have to take that £24,700 as the money.

It wasn’t the only 07 today. A 19k mile BMW 630CI bid to £37,750, which is more than £10k short of list, but explained by the fact that BMW has just announced a refurbished Efficient Dynamics range. While over in the Motability section 708 mile Citroen C4 Picasso 1.6HDI EGS 7-seater sold for £14,500. You can forget the list price of £18,000 in this case because Citroens are always price to be discounted. But £14,500 at least means that C4 Picasso diesels are holding up for the time being.

So where were the bargains?

A 28k mile 2005/54 Polo 1.4TDI Twist certainly wasn’t at £5,950. Nor was a real peach of a MINI One, 32k miles, 2004/54, with alloys and in that lovely light metallic blue MINI colour. It sold for £8,300.

In contrast, an 85k mile 04 MINI Cooper with a/c didn’t go crazy and sold for a much more sensible £6,200. A 37k mile 2004/54 Honda Jazz 1.4SE with dings all over it sold for £4,800. A 95k mile X-Trail 2.2 diesel SVE was probably a good buy at £4,950. While a 66k mile 20003/53 1.3 overhead cam KA definitely was at just £1,725.

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.
