The problem with ‘Modern Classics’

The Renault Avantime, according to Geoff Thompson on Facebook:

“It’ll be one of those cars that someone will buy, and when they come to sell it, everyone will say ‘that must be worth a fortune’, because they read the classic car press and classic car blogs…. but the seller will realise that the few people that would buy the car already own one (or two), so a ream of classic car press and blogs will be lauding it as a modern classic when they’re short on content to post on which to charge advertisers large sums of money, when in reality the car is worth 20p because no on actually wants to buy it… This means that buyers and sellers alike think the car is worth a fortune which means sellers can’t sell and buyers either don’t exist or don’t buy. Like SO many ‘modern classics’ right now. It’ll be the car that you’ll see on a dealer website very soon for £8995, it’ll sit on the eBay showroom for 3 months before he quietly sends it to a local auction where it’ll make £450.”

Cheers Geoff.


A BMW E36 M3 Evolution is a safer investment than property

If you can find one… And we have.

This BMW M3 3.2 Evolution is an exceptional example, having covered just 111,000 miles from new. It’s spent much of it’s life in storage, and even has the original service schedule and dealer sticker in the window.

Not only that, but this car has extensive paperwork, including the pre-delivery inspection sheet from the factory.

As you read this, we may have already re-homed this car, but if you are REALLY serious about buying one of the best BMW E36 M3 Evolution Convertibles in the country, then contact us through the usual channels… We know where it is.

Offers in the £8000 region (March 2016… We bet by March 2018 that looks a steal)
