Current European 550 values ?
Some observations on current European 550 prices.
There are in excess of one hundred 550s for sale over here right now, I've been looking at a lot of them. Hands-on.
Belgium, Holland, UK, France.
Asking prices go from 80.000 to 150.000 and over, for RHD super-low mileages.
Even 100.000km cars at 90.000.
Interestingly, very few have any options over here - just shields on maybe half the cars, some coloured calipers, otherwise very little, and none that I've seen that are "loaded".
But the market appears to have been dead for months, clearly many buyers who bought at 50K and now think they can flip at the double.
Except there are too many of them .........
The only LHD sales I'm aware of in the last month took place at the same dealer in Lyon, France, last week.
Agreable people, good reputation, commission-sellers, selling with a warranty, nice show-room, pretty lighting, right by the Lyon-Geneva motorway, good web-coverage, good grasp of languages.
All the stars lined up.
Two Red/Black cars, 22.000km and 44.000km respectively, full wholly-European histories, recently serviced, very clean, no sticky-switches (yet, and at least no cack-handed attempts).
Un-saleable, for months, at 110.000.
On Tuesday they tell the sellers to get real, and at 89.5000 they're gone within the week.
And my visit on Saturday morning was 48h too late ..........
So your ex-Japanese with dull inside/outside combos at 120.000 ?
Forget it - for now at least.
