Auction Bargains For Anyone With Cash

Fri, 10 Oct 2008
With credit in very short supply it’s hard to work out where cars are actually going these days. But they are still selling, albeit at much lower prices then a couple of months ago.

This respectable W211 E270CDI looked a nice enough car, in a good colour, with leather, service history and a not too leggy 80k miles. It went for just £6,850.

As you would expect, 4x4s are on the floor with a 3-year-old XC90 D5 auto selling for £12,900 and an ML279CDI for £10,400.

But here and there proper money was still being paid for anything with a market, such as £12,250 for a year old Honda Civic Hybrid and a high £8,100 for 3-year-old Golf TDI DSG.

Monday is going to be very interesting, with some heavy metal going under the hammer, including a nearly new Audi RS6 Avant, a BMW 330D coupe convertible and several Bentleys, Nobles and Ferraris.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘pc’ means provisional, but close. ‘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. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘sat’ are specified when they are not standard.
