BACKGROUND: This November 2000-registered Ford Focus underlined that high mileage need not be a deterrent if the condition is good and the car comes from a good home. Finished in Silver – a popular colour which ages well – this one-owner petrol/manual model was direct entered by the leasing company, and was complete with all documentation including service history and V5. The car was also pre-sale prepared using BCA’s Smart Prepared services. Sold at Blackbushe on January 20, competitive bidding saw the value exceed CAP clean by nearly 25%.
