More Opportunities At Auction Today

Mon, 04 Feb 2008
There are still a surprisingly large number of part-exchanges at auction, possibly as dealers clear the decks for the 08 influx. £180 bought three: an 86D Golf 1.6CL auto, a 90H Audi 90 and an 89F FIAT Uno 45. While an extra £85 took away a 95N Citroen ZX 1.4 in the ‘no reserve’ section.

But as always when the public arrive in numbers there were variations in the bidding. Two 93K Renault 19 1.4s came up in different sections in similar condition, one 83k miles, the other 90k. The shiny one in the photo went for £230; the other for £150. Only £80 difference to you and me, but in percentage terms the dearer car was 53% more expensive. And someone went stark, staring mad over an 86k mile 7 year old Previa D-4D, paying a crazy £6,200 to drive it home.

The fleets seemed to be easing back on reserves. First time I’ve seen a current shape SLK under £20k, and this one was a 350 that went for £18,400. Barcelona box, though (Manuel).

But buy of the day had to be a 2004/54 Mercedes C180 Classic estate, again ‘Lever Espana’, and 98k miles, but for £5,950?

They’re going to have to find a new status symbol in Southall.

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.
