Bargain Time at Auction

Fri, 06 Jun 2008
If you’ve got the money and don’t have to borrow, now’s the time to buy. Glass’s Guide wiped £400 - £750 off the value of many larger cars May to June and predicted, “It’s very difficult to see where any improvement in retail demand is likely to come from.”

Highlights (or low lights) included an 04 BMW 320D Touring, sold for £6,100, an 04 Mercedes E220CDI estate, sold for £9,600, an 05 Volvo XC90 D5, sold for £13,700, an 06 Mazda RX-8 231 sold for £8,200 and an 05 Peugeot 407 2.0HDI 136 Executive SW sold for £6,600.

The auction compounds are stuffed with cars and fleet managers are going to have to bite the bullet and let them go because hanging on now makes no sense at all.

And anyone with money in their bank can benefit.

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. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage. ‘dmg’ means damaged. ‘fl’ means facelift. ‘s/r’ means sunroof.
