    Some cheap stuff there...

    As mentioned before though it just shows how little our own cars are worth.

    That SLK sounds very cheap for MX5 money. Not sure whats going on with the plates...

    i would say the plate on the floor is the private plate the car had on and they were changing it at the auction at the moment the guy took the pic

    This makes Jay's CLK55 look incredibly good value!

    Lots of Mercedes!
    auctions change the plates if they have had a private reg or if they are badly degraded.

    They have used sticky pads that dont hold on these sort of bumpers where there is a high degree of curvature.

    I never noticed the plate on the CLK55, that must be worth a few quid too.

    True, I was looking on ebay at 'private' plates. Some ridiculous asking prices!

    Ive read a few of that chaps posts from various recent Auctions and its just sooo tempting to liberate some savings and head on down there. Even the wife has shown a more than passing interest in having an SLK and if they are getting near £10,000 then thats got to be a good buy, would surely get 10 years out of one and its paid its way! ( yes Im trying to convincemyself )
