Inconsistent Bidding At Auction Today

Fri, 08 Feb 2008
Private bidders getting confused between similar looking Fiestas with a year’s difference between them made mayhem today. So congratulations to the trader who secured his slightly more mileagy car for £675 less than the others.

And look at the two Yaris on the list. One, high spec with 55k miles, the other, mid spec and younger with 19k miles. Someone must have wanted high spec awfully badly to pay £1,050 more.

But the fact that a year old Jazz 1.2S went for £5,700, and another, older one, for £4,850 tells me that there’s less money at this end of the market.

Not at the top, though. A 10k mile 07 Audi Allroad 3.0TDI auto with satnav made a resounding £32,800s.

And there was a fair old fight for a 2004/54 BMW X5 3.0D Sport in full WAG spec of black with beige leather and satnav plus traffic light TV. Despite a small matter of 96,000 miles, bidding was brisk and it sold for £18,800. A mere £31,200 less then they were going for in the overs market when it was new and a justifiable 32.5p a mile.

Car of the day, though, was the 28k mile 2005/54 Vauxhall VX220 2.0T, with satnav. The Book said £13,200 trade, £15,900 retail. It sold for £11,800.

Here’s the full list in order of the sale. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage. ‘dmg’ means damaged. ‘fl’ means facelift. ‘s/r’ means sunroof.
