Ford's Resale.

G'day all,
Everyone once in a while, i like to browse through carsales.com to see whats out there. I came across these two Ba's, these people are practically throwing them away. Is this the reason for ford having such crap resale values? Your thoughts please.

BA XR6 TURBO

Re: Ford's Resale.

Problem is he's selling it without the wheels and he doesnt have the original ones?

what are we meant to do bring our own?

Re: Ford's Resale.

We have been seeing the first of the BA xr8's coming through our yard in the mid 20's whole sale price.

Thats where the problem on resale is the Car yards I can assure you right now they usually have bought them (if they weren't a trade) for about 15k less than what they have on them

Re: Ford's Resale.

You can pick up XR8's thru the auctions for as little as $35 ooo with less than 20k on them...

Re: Ford's Resale.

Yes the XR6T ad is a bit weird, why not just say $25 000 for the lot it still a cheap new car.
I think he wants people to bid for the car but it's not going happen.

Re: Ford's Resale.

what i find strange is how much the XR8 has diminished...
Comparing to a XR6 sedan at around 36k+ new.. second hand around 30k is not too bad.. only a 6000 loss but then the XR8 that was 46k+ new and can be found for around 3000 more than a N/A XR6

The XR8 that i found was a bit of a rare case, they more likely to fetch over 40 grand still. It's just the toser on carsales.com is prenty much giving it away, thus forces other people selling XR8's to lower there prices to compete with the sale. Overall cheapening the XR8, it's nothing new though.

not really, i agree that guy might be a tosser but the auction houses have quite a few under 35k fixed price.. The cheapest is a 60000 kay XR8 going for 31k.. Bear in mind they are 'off the street' prices so if you were to bid or use dealer networks/wholesale prices; as Sylox said you could be picking them up for around 25-28k... That is getting close to 1/2 new list price in just over 12 months
