I see this quite a lot; a dealer keeps reducing the price and when it still doesn't sell they put it back up to some ridiculus price, hoping that someone a bit green will not bid them on it.

Or be green enough to believe the "Reduced from £17500" line when they drop it again after another few weeks.... giving a false impression it's worth more.

Or, is it more sinister? Bumping up the estimated overall stock value of the cars in the dealer for 'accounting' reasons?

Somebody stuck the first zero in the wrong place when originally making up the price sticker?

I remember watching a particuarly well speced W211 with Designo options that I really wanted which was very cheap.

By the time our car had sold, I suspect the guy had the phone ring so many times, he stuck it up by £3k.

Annoyed, I was...

£17.500 is what it,s worth

Only if there's £7k in cash stashed in the glove box though.

BMW did something similar with a 550i touring back along. It turned out someone had inputted the price they BOUGHT the car in for, and not the sale price, in the advert!
