« on: 21 July 2020, 21:08:31 »
Prices were all over the place at the Historics auction, the Arnage sold for too much, and the White Silver Cloud 3 only hit £14k and remained unsold. The DB5 wasnít as strong as Iíd have expected.

Traditional auctions however are a different story, pretty much everything is selling for £1k over CAP clean, and its nigh on impossible to find anything at the right price. There is very high demand for used cars currently!

Neil, Iíve just read your PM. I unfortunately donít have the wiring youíll need. Of the units you had, one unit and screen had the registration of the original vehicle, not that this in itself will help, it was purely to show which unit was paired. I suspect some of the other units are paired, but unfortunately thatís unknown to me.

I believe the GID/CID wiring is present in some cars, it has been in cars Iíve had previously.

BMW 520d F10

Volvo S80 D5 or D4, Iíve had my Ď12í S80 for 3 years, you did drive an S60 I had, donít think youíve driven my S80...I think itís great. The Ď63í onwards will have BT audio streaming, phone, and lots of other things youíd want, and theyíre very cheap!

Mercedes C, E or ML?

Discovery 3/4

Subaru Outback

Iíve got a Ď15í 520d touring you can take, and a 440i coupe. The 440i clearly no good, but a fun drive. The 520d no good as itís an estate, Iím not a BMW fan, but itís an ok car to drive.

Iíll send you a blank cheque in the post then TB  ;D

I donít think I turned up in an Omega, even to an event I organised since about 2011!

Neil - PM replied to, NCDC 2013 now sold

Rae - Unfortunately everything from the engine bay is no longer available, sorry.

It did, but I have a good 3.2 alternator you can have.

I just looked up the MOT history out of curiosity, one had 53k miles at last test, other was 93k miles.

Very interesting to see a matching pair, and very unusual theyíre not listed as a ĎV6 Specialí and as an MV6 as per the earlier 3.0 police spec cars.

Afternoon all,

I have a 2002 Ď02í Z157 Star Silver 3.2 Elite estate, the engine and gearbox have been removed.

All parts available except the engine and gearbox, windscreen and tailgate glass.

To stick to the forum rules, and to benefit everyone, some prices are as follows:

(I am quite out of touch with Omega parts prices now, so if you think something is too much, Iím not going to be offended if you say so)

17Ē Elite 5 spoke alloy wheels (tread depth and tyre make to be confirmed) - £100

Complete front bumper with headlight washers, fogs etc - £40

Rear bumper with original parkpilot sensors - £40

Both door mirrors - £50

x4 doors complete, all locking motors work, with door cards - £60

NCDC 2013 and GID - £65 (I know this works) I will also supply approx 4 other units of unknown condition or functionality.

Headlights - £30 each

Rear lights - £15 each

Bonnet (without grille) - £30

Complete Elite Black leather interior - £75 (can also supply door cards FOC, as I have surplus)

Anything else, please ask in this thread and Iíll respond with a price.

If you want a complete vehicle, with the above mentioned engine, box and glass removed let me know.

Location - 5 miles from Oxford, above prices exclude postage which can be arranged at cost for practical to send items. There is adequate space here should you want to remove parts yourself, with a suitable discount for doing so.

Pictures will be uploaded soon.

Iíve sold vehicles since 2009, and by some luck Iíve sold 13 cars in the past 7 weeks.
It dawned on me today, whilst driving TBE into the Smoke, I bought it off you 10 years ago yesterday. It was my 40th birthday present to myself.

Where did that time go :o

How did the lifetime warranty hold up for you?  ;D

Iím sure weíre very much overdue an Oxford meet!

I have a BCA silver account, and can buy online. You have to provide proof you are a professional trader to bid online. I will be able to find the sale price if you let me know what you were looking at.

This has popped up at Birmingham today.  Lowish mileage, no sunroof, and if relatively rust free, it could be right for my project.  I still don't have online bidder status, and wonder if BCA is as dear as people say?

BCA wouldnít be my first choice for a basic spec Omega. Iíve known a number of you for years and met in person, but Iíve not posted for years so makes sense to give a bit of background to my comments or suggestions.
Iíve sold vehicles since 2009, and by some luck Iíve sold 13 cars in the past 7 weeks.

BCA is a good source for vehicles, there will always be something that suits you come up, at some point.
Would I buy an Omega base spec from there? Unlikely! You will probably find an Omega CD or CDX goes through for £200ish, but anything interesting will garner interest.

I would likely search Copart for an Omega.

More generally, BCA is not running physical sales so anyone without a trade account, and the ability to prove they trade can not purchase currently.

I use BCA for specific things, I donít just attend any old sale and bid on anything, I always know what I want.

This popped up on BCA whilst I was looking through for something!
Basic details, 2001 2.6 Elite saloon in the rather nasty gold colour, however with a warranted 19k miles with 10 service stamps and MOT history to confirm mileage.

Available tomorrow at BCA Bridgwater, although no physical sales are happening it will be offered online. Also worth noting, the vendor is UKCGR which is WeBuyAnyCar who is owned by BCA.

There is no guide price currently, but I would think it will achieve £1,500-£2,000 fairly easily.

General Car Chat / Re: Buying at car auctions - any advice?
« on: 06 February 2019, 11:49:17 »
In my experience, a Mini is best avoided at all costs, out of a warranty and itíll hurt. I never buy one, even if itís seemingly cheap and would be Ďeasyí to make money on.

BCA - great vast offering of stock, but as Tigger says, buyers premiums are a lot! You need to have a BCA Gold card with you for it to be worth going. Look at some large independent auctions too!

I wondered why someone had sent me a new cologne with no return address 😂
Maybe a very overdue Oxford meet & curry could be in order?
