This 25k mile 2003/53 MG ZT 4.6 V8 260SE+ was up on 6 months ago at £10,250. A 114k mile 2002/52 Mercedes SLK with 114k miles made a massive £10,450. A 71k BMW 520i 2.2 SE manual was £1,000 more than late last year at £6,400. Even a batch of 6k – 9k mile 2005/55 reg FIAT Panda 1.1 Actives that sell for £5,000 new made £3,650 to £3,700.
