Star car and what it's worth

Star car

Car: BMW 318i SE 2000 W
Mileage: 87,000 miles
Where sold: Manheim Auctions
Sale price: £7,400
% CAP clean: 118%
Background: The ubiquitous 3-series has been BMW’s biggest sales success making up over 50% of its total sales worldwide with a large majority of them being this model, the 318i SE. With popular options and in a good colour, this vehicle was in almost mint condition and was expected to sell well. With both private and trade bidders, this vehicle flew off the block, making well over CAP Clean and delighting the vendors. This is fine example that despite its prevality the talents of the 3-series are still highly sought after when it comes to remarketing time.
