I think your right Mavster!
No idea how hillwalker got offered £2k more tho....WBAC are robbing barstewards!
Maybe, but it could all be down to supply and demand.
WBAC are wholly owned by British Car Auctions, and all their cars go directly to auction under the name UKCGR. The prices they offer are tied to the auction data they hold (so accurate in terms of what cars are actually selling for at auction). It's interesting to compare the prices they buy cars in at compared to what they actually sell for (I've done this), and they make a decent margin (anywhere between £400-800+ from the cars I tracked). For British Car Auctions, this a great business model and it feeds a lot of cars into their auctions; it's also pretty rare to make such a big margin on a wholesale model.Mr Tidy wrote: ↑Sat Feb 03, 2018 11:43 pmMaybe, but it could all be down to supply and demand.
I mean if their systems are as market sensitive as airline tickets or hotel rooms it may just be that they have one or two like yours in stock already, but don't have one like "hillwalkers" - and might even have customers waiting for one like his.
It does seem odd as they're the same model, but then if you wanted white I doubt you'd even consider red - or vice versa!
Give it a week or so and you usually get a better offer anyway.
Thats the very same colour combination I wanted when I bought mine at the end of the E89 production run!
