Overpricing hits new heights...

15k? It's a 2002!

It might require a flight across the Irish Sea, but this is way more appealing:

Loving the interior of that Irish wagon.

May I propose an IT firewall on 4StarClassics to avoid shock at the pricing?

That's a bit undersold - not mentioning that it's a GTA in the title.
It is lovely though.

The 4star one is mad.
Overpriced due to the low mileage but use it and hammer the value


They haven't even got the rust off the discs for the photos. Poor.

Good work - I was going to say one could find something tidy for a third of the money, just with more miles on it, but you have found one!

These classics places are all the same... I can get a bit of a mileage obsession as I add lots of miles to my cars so the lower I start, the better. But usually I find a car - like my current one - well under average mileage for no premium. The more desirable the model, the harder that becomes. I probably ought to go high mileage and cheap from day 1!

This is interesting for me as Die Schreibmaschine has 34k miles at 12 years old. I expect to put 5-8k per annum on that but Alpinas in the UK are odd in that you either get a buyer that wants one and is willing to pay "too much" or dealers that trade them in at BMW prices. In Europe they're mental money by comparison - 15-20k for one like mine.

I see they've still got the Honda S600 city car. Now up for "offers". What did that start at. Was it 30k or something?
Racing Teatray

70k I thought...
Giant

The Z600 was 74995 initially!

Love the G60, seems almost reasonably priced too!
tali

4star classics in overpriced car shocker!

Holy f***. Maybe they'll get 7,499.50?
PhilD

do 4* sell any of these cars? If they do they are not over-priced!
Tim

It's been a while since we had anything from Hexagon.

They've got 4 of these on sale, are they special in some way that I'm missing?

fuck me! Classics generally are massively on the up, and I noticed that 911 are particularly so. That was what, 50k a couple of years ago?
Tim

I'm sure they've been well below 50k.
Hexagon have a modified 964 RS for 200k!
Standard ones (usually more desirable in the classic stakes) had climbed to about 60k a couple of years ago.
Big Blue

Ha ha ha ha: they have E46 M3s in for 48k.

ROFLMAO
Tim

Ah but they're the much vaunted CSLs complete with super fantastic SMG gearbox  
Martin

Hexagon have a 2008 E60 535d with cloth seats for sale at 20,995 and a similar spec 2009 530d for 18,995!!

You mean "super fantatisch"...

I hadn't noticed the cloth seats and am a bit surprised the 535 wouldn't have leather as standard.

Are they a front for something a bit more sinister? Sell the 535D for a realistic 14K and top the price up to show you sold it for your asking 21K?

In such a price sensitive market they surely wouldn't sell anything at full price?
Tim

Looking at the slightly older stuff the main draw appears to be that they're all low(ish) mileage and that appears to have become enough of a reason to price cars, er, optimistically.
Add to that Hexagon have always been pricey.

They've had that blue E39 M5 showing 29k (I think?) for well over 12 months.
Big Blue

Do you think they'll give me 30k for die Schreibmaschine?
Tim

No but they'd probably try to sell it for that!
Clunes

I've seen some nice kit advertised at Hexagon but their pricing is laughable. I'd be interested to know what their average sale price is as a % of sticker

As an aside I see they had a small print space in the latest Evo 'from the dealer' or something like that (it's not in front of me so guessing)

How very true. I bet whenever you try to sell them something it'll be "ooooh, there's not much demand for those guv, sorry".
