    XKR prices.

    Morning folks,

    It seems to me that the asking prices of the X150 5 litre convertibles are all over the place at the moment making it very difficult to know how much to bid for an XKR on Thursday.
    First reg November 2010.
    Bright Blue with Ivory leather and Ali dash.
    58,000 miles.
    20" Alloy Wheels, DVSA Mileage - 30k 39k 47k 52k 58k, Key(s) - 1, Last Srvc - 05/17 53k, Leather Trim, Srvc Bk - 6 srvc 6 main dlr; New MoT
    In my opinion all the wheels need a refurb costing about £400 incl VAT for a proper powder coat job.
    4 new tyres needed. 1 key needed.
    It has Arden badges on it but it doesnt seem to have any body kits fitted. No further info is available. Engine tweak may or may not be a good thing.
    Its going to need £1,000 spent on it for the wheels and tyres plus there will be an auction fee of about £800.
    Engine sounded OK with no s/c or water pump rattle. I heard it running last week when being moved around.

    My question is:

    What would this be worth if I bought it and made the above improvements?

    There is a similar mileage Black one on Auto Trader the owner will take £24,500 for and several with dealers for a lot more. 2010 model with 28k miles asking £33,950!

    The Autotrader Black one at £24500 wants some further investigation surely ? As far as I can see everything hinges on
    its condition and Provenance . It will easily best the Dealers Prices and the Auction Car as well when you factor in the
    improvement costs . The unknown of course is how much the Auction Car fetches on the Day , it would have to be around
    £22k on the day to make any sense assuming the Autotrader Car is of the same standard

    I haven't specifically looked at prices of XKRs as I was looking for an XK. I agree that the prices do seem to be all over the place, and have noticed similar with the Rs that showed up when I was looking. As an example the car I bought, a 2010 model, was advertised at £27k with 34k miles which seemed to be in line with many others but there is now a 2009 with 22k miles for £23.5k only a couple of weeks later. But there are others slightly more than mine was. There seem to be a few factors which cause the vaiances - age, mileage, service history, condition and I'm not sure what else.

    That blue looks great!

    I have an 2008 XK RS , in fairly decent condition , i'm the 2nd owner ,just turned 38k miles , with full history and service . All this with every worry rectified ie new rear tyres , new suspension etc . I will not be selling any time soon ......... BUT if you offered me northwards of £28k I STILL WOULD NOT BE INTERESTED . These cars we own are complete icons as far as i'm concerned , and as they are no longer in production will definitely put a premium on them in the near future . I do accept that market forces dictate the price but I've had this conversation many many times before , and my answer is the same , the rarer they are , the more expensive they will be . I take my reasoning from x3 Toyota Supra,s i've sold in the last 14 yrs . If you want a Toyota Supra 6 speed manual £30k + and rising .
    2008 Jaguar xk/rs
    31k miles
    In a very nice condition , but will be better the longer it is in my ownership .

    As far as I can tell asking prices have firmed a little in the last month since I bought mine. No dammit I wish I'd waited for

    Over on the XKEC a member monitors prices of XKs. 2010 X150 XKR convertibles averaged £30k asking price over the last survey. Range of prices was from £35k down to under £20K I would say Blue with Ivory interior would be popular combination. I would expect most cars would need wheel refurb and best you do it yourself properly ather than a cosmetic fix by a dealer. Assume you have run a wbac valuation to see what 'market' price might be? Hope you get it for a good price, they seem to be holding their value.

    Good luck Stag , its great to know that People like yourself are still kicking around on the Forum and buying these
    cars out of their back pocket and based on their own knowledge and experience , there would be no better way to
    spend an afternoon than in an Auction Room with you and the Engineer , who needs spreadsheets ?
