Prices for 6 speeders hardening?

Just had a quick look on Autotrader and the prices being *asked* seem to be firming up - and looking more favourable to current owners.

M5saloon looks to have got a good price for his on ebay as well.

I know that what's being asked in terms of price doesn't necessarily reflect what's paid, but what do you guys think? Are prices getting a bit stronger?

Hi Rob

My eBay was a false bid as expected...

I've sold only one car on eBay in four different auctions - seems to me it only works if a genuine local buyer comes and deals outwith the auction - but obviously eBay is a good way to get the car seen, and i am kinda isolated way up here in Aberdeen so maybe eBay cars work better in more populated areas!

The highest bid for the M5 was £6k which is absolute nonsense, had several email offers of £7k+ but IMO still way too low - Munich Legends are advertising their two at £14k or thereabouts... I have a local guy trying to sort out finance at £8,500 so fingers crossed.

My view is that these cars would settle around £8k minimum for a decent, well-maintained one - just like the good older E28s make when they come up now and again.

Cheers,
David.

Will check you PM now. You can check any running or closed eBay auction to see what happened by clicking on the 'bid history' button i think it's called, near the top, certainly once the auction is over it shows what everyone bid. in this case the guy says he put in a wrong amount, way too high - ok he shouldn't have done that but no major drama as i didn't expect it to meet the reserve which was £9,250...

Cheers,
David.

What i like about eBay is the amount you can write - my listing took a couple hours to do but it avoided most stupid questions. Well if you don't count the ars*hole who offered to SELL me his Toyota 4runner that is... Some people... :rolleyes:

Cheers,
David.

Holy sh*t £15k!! ouich

Defo a one-in-a-million buyer there i'd say, i'd have thought anything over ten was hitting the jackpot regardless of low mileage or condition!! For me £8500 was good enough, the car wasn't perfect and it went to a good home (hey Jim if you're reading!). Car cost me just over £2k in 10 months, it was an impulse buy to get a taste of the M5 experience, unfortunately it was just too old to run as my main car!

As Arnie says "i'll be back"...

Cheers,
David.
