£4,550 at auction today

Fri, 10 Nov 2006
Clean 2001/51 BMW 525iSE manual on 15” wheels with 225/60 comfort tyres, leather, 95k miles and 8 BMW stamps. Bidding started at £3,500 and ended with someone driving it home for £4,550. Lot of car for the money.

A 2004/54 LandRover Discovery 3 TDV6 7-seater auto with leather and satnav confounded its critics by clocking up 113k miles, some of it with some sort of trailer behind, yet still raised a solid £20,200. (New base spec 5-seat manuals now start at £25k via brokers.)

A 79k mile 02 reg Mercedes W210 E320CDI A/G reserved at £7,500 sold for £9,525. One of the worst Yaris I’ve seen, an 80k 99V GS in matt white with a damaged and rusted door sold for £1,525.

72k mile 02 Mitsubishi Carisma 1.9D-ID Mirage with leather £2,250.

So, while the 525iSE and the Carisma were cheap, not much else was.

Here’s the list. ‘s’ means sold. ‘n/w’ means unwarranted mileage. ‘p’ means top provisional bid. ‘n/s’ means not sold, ‘D/R’ means damaged and repaired.
