Both Cheap and Dear at Auction Today

Cheap by my reckoning were the 69k mile 07 Honda CR-V 2.2i CDTI ES in the photo at £9,500, a repossessed 73k mile 04 BMW 745CI cabrio ay £14,400, a 73k mile 06 BMW E90 320iES at £6,500, a 45k mile 2007/57 W204 Mercedes C180K SE Classic at £11,000, a 52k mile 06 Honda Civic 1.8i-VTEC SE at £5,600 and a 57k mile 06 Toyota Prius T-Spirit at £6,050.


Not cheap at all was a 17k mile 06 R50 MINI Cooper Park Lane at £8,550, which is good news for a friend of mine as these are probably the most desirable R50s.


I also thought a fairly lowly spec 26k mile 2007/57 Qashqai 1.6 Acenta looked dear at £9,600.


While a 56k mile 07 reg CR-V 2.0i EX was definitely a bit on the stiff side at £11,500 - £2,000 more than the lower spec but similar mileage diesel.
