What would you rather go for

BMW 318Ci, Auto, V-reg, 55,000 miles from a private seller

or

BMW 318Ci, Auto, 02 reg, 84,000 miles from a trade seller

Both the same money

best thing to do is have someone at home on autotrader and when you see something going thru you like the look of get a guide price, i did that yesterday and my pal said the average for them trade was 6500k, so when the hammer was going down on £4300 i went for it and it didnt go on again. Cool
i reckon you could easily earn a grand a week doing that, if you had 4 to 5 to lay out, just go there once a week and sell it on the net the following week for a grand profit and then ad infinitum. i honestly do believe its that simple. (if you have got half an inch of common sense that is)

Yeah there's deffinetly money to be made, was almost gunna give it a go when I was a nipper and had a few grand saved up. Loads of people still do it through autotrader etc. Not really the market at the minute to be doing second hand car sales.

Was talking to the guy at my local little garage his son goes to a lot of the sales and buys some cars to put on the court just as a bit extra cash, picked up a 206cc for £2500, had it priced up at £5500 Shocked Had sold on the front of it 3 weeks later when I drove past, even if they took 5k or ever 4 and a half still a nice little earner.
