Autopilot, Next Gen Seats.

Body work had no major dents but loads of chips, scrapes, interior looked perfect.

I went to see the auction yesterday, anyone wanna guess what it fetched?

£35950 top (total cost with fees not hammer price) if sold in the trade, back out on the forecourt would be about £42499.

If the EV trade specialists were not interested then somebody might have got a great deal.

Cheapest in the UK is 41k but they're Tesla cars and they have a fair few of them, probably ones bought 3 years ago with the buy back guarantee. I can easily believe at auction it would be 30k or less, It would also be interesting to see if its a Tesla sale and they've nobbled unlimited supercharging.

I’ve been to 3 auctions, each time I’m completely shocked how much cars sell for, in my experience they go for nearly the same as they are listed on Autotrader.

There’s pretty much the same car on Tesla.com 4 year warranty for just over £41k

I would be surprised if the buyer was a registered dealer. At those prices it looks like an individual who will keep the car if it will not sell at a premium price to justify the margin on the purchase price. Dealer would put it out at £44.950 k not £45 k.

It’s J D Cleve Ltd, defo a dealership. Surprised they have taken a punt on that considering the amount of paintwork that needed doing and the price Tesla are selling them direct for.

Had the same experience trying to get a battery owned Zoe.

Travelled quite far for one and the condition was awful, so thought it could be a nice project if I could get it for cheap. Went for market price by online trader, and was up on AutoTrader with a mark up within an hour.

I stand corrected. Trade price for paintwork is about half what we pay. If they have a paint shop they might be pleased to be feeding it work. The clean interior is clearly worth a lot to them.

Cleve are trying to make a niche for themelves up that way and be the Richard Symons of the north. They've been trying for a few years and getting greedy in my opinion - they have number of M3 for sale, at one point with 10-20k premium on them over list. On the other hand if stuff sells then it sells - I suppose I can't really judge them without meeting to see if they spin people a yarn in the sales process but if anyone asked me I'd say you can buy cheaper elsewhere

I bought my 85D from Jason Cleve, it came from Leaseplan as 1st owner and I assume he bought it at auction.

I am sure it will be the VAT qualifying element as it makes it attractive for export, when I went to test drive mine he had 2 P85s sitting awaiting collection that were going to Mauritius.

So after fees and paintwork and the inevitable haggling how much do you think is actually in it.
