Prices Strong At Auction Today

Wed, 05 Mar 2008
Part-exchanges have not come through in any numbers yet and the market is starved of the right used cars. So for every car with a queue of buyers there was a bidding battle. Part-exchanges will be slower than usual coming through this year anyway because new cars aren’t getting to the dealers in time. So we won’t see the usual Tsunami this year. More likely about 6 weeks of high tides.

All the decent stuff was book or more. The 2007/57 Honda Civic Type-R in the photo made £15,400, about what the dealer who originally sold it paid Honda for the car. Another shining example of the money paid today was no less than £5,225 for an admittedly spotless 34k mile 2004/53 Mondeo 2.5V6 Ghia X auto. Audi A4 B7s were very strong. While Octavia diesels hung on to their values as grimly as they always do.

But the big stuff is dropping. Lowlights today were a 34k mile 3-year-old Audi TT 3.2DSG sold for £15,500, so that’s 50% depreciation in 3 years. While £23,400 drove home a 36k mile 2004/54 Porsche Cayenne S possibly due to doubts that Porsche will succeed in its judicial review of the £25 a day London CO2 tax on high emitters.

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.
