Anyone for a ten grand old 3 series diesel with some questionable cosmetics, high mileage, and no mention of the interior?

I've already seen one crazy overpriced naff old Escort in this thread a few pages ago, it can have a a friend now. A '91 1.3 Popular with 27,000 miles for £5,500!

Five and half thousand of your hard earned for something that's not beautiful, fast, interesting, well-specced, tuneful, historically important, or remotely rewarding to drive. Talk about value.

There is some incredibly daft pricing out there. I look at cars like that Escort and think it's a £999 car at best. Low mileage just means a crap car with low mileage.

For something a bit different then, how about this '06 Continental GT at 1,000 miles for a whopping £62k.

I sort of understand low-mileage collectability for some examples, even though it goes against my desire to see them used and enjoyed. And I actually find myself liking these Conti GTs more and more as time goes on. But they aren't rare, scarce, or interesting. Sure "find another at this mileage!", but why would you want to? Especially when you can find a well looked after example all day long for a third of the price.

Takes all sorts I guess.

Because we’re all individuals and desire different things from life.

That's M4 GTS Territory.

Know what I'd rather have.

I, for some reason God only knows, like that Escort.
Would maybe pay £550 for it, not 10x that though.

Was watching this yesterday, as it happens:
