    BCA Auction View 7th Sep 07 at 5:25 PM
    Does any kind MSEr have access to BCA's Auction View programme and would be willing to make some searches for me? I've paid for the Manheim one already, don't fancy shelling out another 15 quid :rolleyes:

    Thanks in advance

    Help with finding a car
    Can I thank everyone for this thread, there is some really useful information here. I am trying to find a car through BCA or another auction and getting information without being in the trade is hard. I would be really greatful if you could see if there are any of the following cars around which would be really helpful:

    MAKE: Saab 93 Convertible
    Model: Any
    Engine size: 2 litre
    Petrol or deisel: Petrol
    manual or automatic or tiptronic: either
    Registration years most interested in: 2004 to 2006
    How much you have to spend: 10K (including VAT)
    colour (if important): Any
    BCA venue: Any North/Midlands (Leeds is best)

    I may be able to stretch to a Audi A4 Convertible, but am not sure if I am being realistic with my budget:

    MAKE: Audi
    Model: A4 Convertible
    Engine size: 2.5 tdi
    Petrol or deisel: Deisel
    manual or automatic or tiptronic: Any
    Registration years most interested in: around 2003
    How much you have to spend: 12K including VAT
    colour (if important): Any
    BCA venue: Any North/Midlands (Leeds in best)

    A final question, when you bid, does it include VAT or do you have to add it?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Peter

    VAT is included in everything at BCA

    Your bid is VAT inclusive
    The buyers fee is VAT inclusive
    The buyers re-registration fee £23 (ripoff) is VAT inclusive.

    VAT can only (I think) be recovered from "VAT qualifying" lots provided the purchase is for business use. I don't understand why not from any lot perhaps someone can tell me,

    One tip with An Audi... Get Manual. Or if you really, really HAVE to have auto, make sure its Quattro, as it has a normal automatic 'box. Unlike the CVT rubbish that's on offer...

    Anybody use Manheim Simulcast? It's been !!!!! all week! Very slow at accepting bids! Damm thing...

    Have to disagree on that, I have an A4 with the cvt auto, I find it a very smooth box without any problems at all ? I have had it four years and done 75k, I drive BMW, Vauxhall and Vovlo's at work, but nothing beats the smoothness of the Audi gearbox ? just depends if your a speed freak in which case yes the more power you get out at the driving wheels certainly helps with an auto. The Merc AMG are all auto's ? and you really cannot beat it for gear changing which was shown whilst testing on the Nuerberg ring.

    Hi,

    We're looking to get an Audi A3 2.0 tdi sport sportback manual, about 3 years old with 40k miles max.

    Could someone with an account please post details of any cars? Auctions around London and the SE would be great.

    Help and opinions appreciated.

    Great thread. Having used AuctionView in the past I'm not sure I'd pay the subscription again. Having said that, if anyone can help with the following, I'd be grateful.

    I'm looking for a 2003 (03) onwards A4 Avant 1.9Tdi, manual gearbox and preferrably not in Silver or Champagne. Would prefer one owner (eg ex-lease) and Sport trim but SE will do. Don't mind mileage and power output. Budget is £9.5k max.
    Can any of you good people point me in the direction of any coming up in forthcoming auctions.
    Midlands based but can/will travel. Currently without a car of my own so looking for one p.d.q.!
    Cheers.

    I agree - its smooth, as its erm, CVT - so no changing noticed, duh!

    However, I also stick to my point thats they are !!!!!...

    Just make sure the ATF gets changed every 40,000 miles - one thing Audi never tell you about though...

    So if its a smooth change, and is reliable ? then what else in your technically well structured and most informative post makes them in the world of chav to be !!!!! ?

    Maybe this is from your worldly experience of tens of thousands of miles driving one, or possibly your technical knowledge in design and engineering? WoW I must on the strength of your post get this piece of smooth, reliable engineering sold immediately as it's clearly !!!!!.

    Talk to any gearbox specialist. Or google it.

    Just watch out for any jerky feeling when pulling away or coming to a rest - its the start of your problems.

    As a dealer, I refuse to stock any CVT/Multitronic Audi's now because of how unrelaible they are!

    Does Auction View provide you with the prices that were achieved after an auction has taken place?

    Are their any kind MSE's who could provide me later with the prices that were(are) achieved at the fleet sale today at Peterborough.

    I was hoping to go and watch the auction myself, to get details of prices for nearly new cars 2007 reg cars.

    If auctionview does provide a list of achieved prices after the auction, please could someone PM me the list, and I will trawl through the 2007 reg cars, as there is quite a lot in today's auction.

    Thanks in advance
