Bargains Harder at Auction Today

Fri, 06 Jan 2006
This 66k mile 02 reg Astra 1.6 16v would not normally have merited a glance. Except a glance showed it had a plug in the back wing with the initials ‘L.P.G.’ stencilled above it. So someone who knows their market should see a fair profit on their £2,550 paid.

The 185k mile 93L Lexus LS400 knocked down for £1,200 before Christmas sold again today for just £925. Can’t tell you why it was back, maybe a knocker, but apparently there’s money to be made in breaking old LS400s.

Rovers are cheap. £8,650 really wasn’t a lot for a Wedgwood blue 3k mile 2004/54 75 1.8 Connoisseur SE Tourer. Nor was £6,000 for a ridiculously bespoilered 10k mile 2004/54 MG ZR 120+ Stepspeed.

£4,700 was pretty good for a 9k mile 05 Yaris 1.0 T3 3-dr, and £4,800 for an 11k mile 2004.54 Fiesta 1.2LX 3-dr.

But VWs all looked dear to me. Especially a 45k mile 2003/52 Golf TDI PD 130 that sold for a jaw dropping £9,050.
