Mileage and Status Separate Best Auction Prices From the Rest.

Audis still seem to command a considerable premium for status. So £11,600 paid for a 49k mile 3 year old is to be expected.

But £16,900 for a 41k mile 3 year old A4 B8 2.0FSI quattro wasn’t. It obviously had to be an order from someone wanting to prepare for winter. So, lucky for them the car needed a new set of tyres. They could switch to a set of winters on straight away.

That said, big mileage Audis weren’t attracting high bids. And a 41k mile 3 year old A5 3.0V6 TDI quattro coupe was bang on trade book at £17,400.

Jaguars don’t carry the same premium, and bargain of the day to my mind was a 28k mile 10 reg XF 3.0 240 diesel Luxury, gone for £20,000, at least £1,000 under trade book.

DPF avoidance helps the last of the Honda CR-V 2.2iCDTI fetch big money, though a 16k mile 2009/59 EX didn’t quite reach its reserve.

Even so, £18,100 bid was a lot of money for a two year old.

Fords were more sensible money, yet there was still a big divide between petrol and diesel. A 46k mile 2008/58 Focus 1.6TDCI 110 Zetec estate sold for £7,000, while a 50k mile 2009/58 1.6 petrol Style estate sold for just £4,600 – with no DPF, DMF, EGR or turbo to worry about over the next 50k miles.

(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. ‘H/T’ means hardtop. ‘imp’ means unofficial import. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘sat’ are specified when they are not standard.)
