Six M3s in a Row at Auction Today

Mon, 09 Jan 2006
Six 15-month-old 54 reg BMW M3s came under the hammer one after the other today to provisional bids of £27,000 to £30,400, all well under book. An 11k mile 2003/52 SL55 AMG with Distronic radar sold for £54,000, a 13k mile 04 reg BMW 645i convertible sold for £41,850 and a 30k mile 04 reg Porsche Cayenne S with satnav sold for £34,500.

Downmarket a bit in the Motability section, a two-month-old 55 reg Focus II 1.6LX automatic sold for £9,950, a 7k mile 04 reg Mazda MX5 1.8 Sport 6-speed (curiously bearing the glue marks from a set of ‘L’ plates) sold for £9,850 and a 25k mile 2004/53 Renault Scenic 1.4 Expression was the cheapest new shape Scenic I’ve yet seen, selling for £6,200.

I didn’t have time to stay and see what a 820 mile 2005/55 new model Passat TDI 140 Sport made, so if anyone did, please e-mail me and I’ll include the price later.
