For example, this 89k mile 85B Volvo 360 GLS complete with shed tugging hitch was just £30. A later, 136k mile 93L Volvo 440 1.8Xi was £70. A 40k mile 1997R Rover 420i was £600. A 110k-mile 1998R SAAB 9-5 2.3T was £1,000. A 122k-mile 1997R BMW 318i was £1,500.

Some of the newer cars looked good value too. Like a 79k mile Peugeot 306 1.9LXD at £2,050, a 93k mile 1999V Volvo C70 170PS coupe £3,800, at a 5,000 mile 03 reg metallic blue Nissan Micra 1,2S at £3,900, an 80k mile 02 reg Jaguar X-Type 2.1 V6 at £5,900 and a 98k mile 2003/52 SEAT Leon 20VT Cupra at £5,050.

Even some of the expensive stuff was comparatively inexpensive. Including a 5,000 mile 2004/54 Mazda RX8 231 with satnav, sunroof and leather at £16,400. And an 8k mile 2004/54 Mercedes E320CDI at £21,999.

But just like there’s no such thing as a free lunch, there’s still no such thing as a cheap MINI. A 46k mile 2001/51 Cooper started promisingly in the low fives, yet still went on to sell for £7,400.
