High Milers Cheap, Low Milers Getting Dearer at Auction

Fri, 27 Nov 2009

This Friday, despite slightly mixed messages (a 12k mile
2008/58 Fiesta Style Climate selling for just £5,200), there was no real change
from last week. The better cars are getting dearer, and if the fleets can’t get
the right money today they simply hang on until tomorrow.


A 37k mile 2006/56 Audi A3 1.6FSI Sportback S Line went for
exactly trade book at £10,850, yet a 97k mile 2005/55 Audi A3 2.0FSI Sportback
SE, reserved at £6,000 stayed unsold at £5,200.


Current shape Mondeos continue to fetch strong money; not as
much as book predictions, but still better than previous Mondeos and Sierras
ever did at 18 months old.


Five 2005/55 Golf GT TDIs showed the effect of mileage on
price, The 52k miler made £6,800, but the other four with mileage between 107k
and 123k were all around £5,000.


A second W204 Mercedes C220CDI confirmed their price level:
2007/57, 54k miles £17,500; 08, 42k miles £18,400.


R50 MINIs are still strong.


Yet a 49k mile 2006/56 Focus 1.6i LX, estate auto with air
looked cheap to me at £3,750s.


Bargain of the day was a 72k mile Mercedes CLS 320CDI, sold for £16,500, £1,250 under trade book.


Here’s the list. *To try to give a bigger picture I’ve
included last Friday’s results, all starred*.


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.
