The cars at BCA aren't cheap and retail punters are better off buying privately where you can talk to the owner, test and check the car over thoroughly.  :y

Most of the cars are there for a reason.  ;)

This is genuinely not a dig and merely an observation, just in case anyone misinterprets my comments as bitchy.  :)

You would definitely want a close up inspection of this and not bid online, even with it's validated extremely low mileage. The low mileage is nice, if the rest of the car reflects this, but I keep looking at the apparent colour change on the drivers side. It may be a trick of the light (the missing Elite badge on drivers door is not a trick of the light, present on passenger side) but I suspect something has happened to that side. Considering the extremely low mileage, hopefully it was just a minor issue.  :y

It will still want a suspension refurb, close inspection for rust, a good service and probably cambelt change the same as any other Omega, regardless of the low miles. People do go gaga over low mileage cars though, so it may go for a high price.

Perishing tyres were the only advisory on the MoT this March. Previous Mot expired in 2017 iirc

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.
It was an Omega that sold at Derby on Wednesday I think, reg started FL03  silver with a dodgy painted rear bumper iirc.  Sorry that's a bit vague, but I thought I'd tracked it on my account, but nothing comes up.  Thanks.

You know and I know that an Omega with knackered suspension can pass an MOT for year after year. ;)

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.

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
