Used Car Prices Still High at Auction Today

Fri, 21 Aug 2009
I thought perhaps there might have been an opportunity in a
7k mile 08 Ford Street Ka SE, but it still made trade book.

 

Mileage adjusted, the 63k mile 07/57 Chrysler 300C in the
photo was about £2,000 over trade book.

 

R56 MINI Coopers were making bonkers money (but not no crazy
if there was still a profit in them).

 

Even a 30k mile 2003/53 Daihatsu Terios made £700 over trade
book.

 

But then, the attractive black 43k mile 07 BMW 320d SE coupe
that went for £14,500 was £1,000 under trade book. And the 29k mile 05/55 630Ci
convertible at £20,700 was nearly £2,500 under trade book.

 

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.
D/R means damaged and repaired. ‘fl’ means facelift. Extras like ‘lthr’ and
‘sat’ are specified when they are not standard.
