This is a great PR stunt over the Autotrader.

Give them a week & I think reality will sink in. 

I think on any longer-termers I’ve got advertised I’ll consider half-reasonable offers to move them on for fresh stock.

Yup low and behold, now on Bid-Now / Buy Now

I'd be careful letting things go too cheap as I don't think we'll be able to re-stock as "cheaply" as some are suggesting.  BCA will and always have felt like a industry carrier that controls the pricing, which in short is kinda correct.  I've always felt they are backed by the higher powers to keep the market strong as letting cars go too cheap will have such a negative effect on new car sales.  That could just be the conspiracy tin foil hat side of me though HaHa!
