I recently payed $7,900 US for my e28 M5 that has 165K, but is in nice overall condition. I have seen lower miles cars selling for signifcantly more on ebay. I'm not sure how much insight this gives you, considering you are in a completely different market.

I suggest that condition and originality is everything. Restoration costs can be high and will exceed the worth of even a good car.

In the UK there are few really good ones left and many cars have covered big mileages - as they were designed to. There were numerous UK cars even nine or ten years ago that had done 100,000 miles or more.

This is a specialised car and the best ones will not be a cheap smoke either to buy or maintain. Many will have had lots of owners and have descended into bangerdom - you know, "one careful owner [and a dozen or so criminally negligent ones we don't know about]"!

The person that really wants one will (or should) wait to buy the best they can find and be prepared for a long wait with plenty of blind alleys. Good UK cars are advertised at around £12k but must be excellent for that with sensible mileage and, crucially, fully auditable history with no gaps, as these were (and are) prime clocking material. A big sheaf of papers and all the original books is a good start.

There are a very few cars in the UK that are in near-new condition: for these, the price is anybody's guess.

As always - a car is only worth what someone will pay for it. It's a case of finding the right person: there are genuine buyers out there, but not many!
