Interesting reading, but it's all la la land in reality.

I've noticed there's a huge difference in price for 205s sold on Autotrader to the ones on ebay.

As far as I can see there still going for around 6k although all these publications are good for the value.

Or bad if your trying to get your hands on one

I do not feel that the values are as high as they make out. Maybe one or two but a 1.6 worth 11k? Let's be fair, the ball park figure for a good 1.6 is around 3/4K - 8/9 at a push? It's ok predicting these values but they are only as good as the receipts they are printed on when people pay those prices in my opinion

Remember those prices are essentially for the top condition, low mileage examples that collectors (or perhaps that should be speculators) want.

As you say, your typical example isn't worth anything like that, despite what some delusional people might otherwise think.

I'm with Anthony on this, its beyond a joke the prices I've seen GTIs selling at.

 

Mine is well used and Ive looked at a couple on garage forecourts going for £8000 that are in worse condition.

 

Its utter bollocks

I simply feel sorry for the person that ultimately will by 'that Miami blue one'

Well I only wish the prices were true but sadly there are no where near what I see.  I have a 1984 Audi Quattro UR Turbo (excellent condition) and it's worth £25K absolute tops, and that's if I found the perfect buyer, I don't know where they get the figures from but I don't see a lot of the figures being accurate against what's on line and prices at auction.

 

But then consider it's a list released by a company that has a vested interest.

I have found it amazing how the bubble hasn't popped yet, I mean look at the prices of Porsches, they are stupid with dealerships offering customer who were picking up their GT4's £20k for them to sell the car back to them!

That is SO close to the reg of my first white 1.6 - F323OKV - which is now a shell awaiting some sort of restoration by one of the members on here.

Will definitely be interesting to see how much this one goes for and if it sets a new record, given the mileage and interesting history. Of course examples like this are almost irrelevant to the rest of us - la la land as said above - as this one is at the extreme end. But let's face it, if you were a minted money-no-object passionate collector, this is the sort of thing you'd be after.

 

They mention it still has the original dizzy cover. Well not in the photos it doesn't. Have they taken it off to preserve it just for history's sake?

The car will probably be bought by an overseas person like other low mileage classics!

BS.
I know the guy that owns this car, he is fastidious about it and if the advert says it is the original part then it will be the original part.
