No Change to Auction Buying Patterns

Wed, 21 Feb 2001
German ex-fleet cars are still top of the pile at auction, but a couple of interesting sections added interest to the sale at BCA Blackbushe today. On the one hand we saw £11,000 paid for a 28,000 mile 98S Golf Mk IV GT TDI 110 and £10,550 for an 18,000 mile Golf Mk IV TDI S 90 which lacked even air conditioning. Fords stayed level with £7,925 bid for a 30,000 mile Focus 1.8iLX and £9,300 to £9,375 bid for a threesome of 12,000 mile 2000W Mondeo 2.0 Ghia X automatics with leather. A section of very saleable ex-bodyshop courtesy car 99T Micra Profile 3-doors with power steering sold for between £3,600 and £4,325, depending on mileage which ranged from 10,000 to 30,000 and colours which were either red, white of silver. A silver 13,000 miler was the car sold to a private bidder for £4,325, which was well above trade money. Following this and the street fighting outside the South Korean factory came a section of 90 Daewoos. The first were simply run against the wall be the auctioneer to try and establish a playing field, and it was hard to believe that anyone bid £3,800 for a 62,000 mile 98R Leganza 2.0CDX. But find the right level and everything will sell, so seven lots later a very clean 28,000 mile Silver 98R Leganza 2.0SX sold for £4,200, a 54,000 mile 98R Nubira 2.0CDX estate sold for £3,650, a 13,000 mile 98R Lanos 1.6SX 3-door automatic with a/c sold for £3,775, and a 32,000 mile 98R Lanos 1.6SX 4-door with a/c sold for £3,300.
