    Default DS prices

    A few good DS around at the moment, but they seem to keep going up in value.
    Here is a few of the RHD available, their LHD equal seem to be higher, won't even go there.

    Just look at them though. None of the cars listed would you describe as your "average DS". They have all likely had at least $50,000 spent on them in recent times.

    I would be surprised if they didn't sell for close to there asking price, especially the first two.

    Of course, if you just happened to know a couple of the cars and the calibre of the people who restored them, your comment might have some weight.

    There are also a few people out there who own Ds which are of a similar standard to those offered and would be unlikely to offer them at prices less than these you are seeing.
    Indeed, within the past 12 months I know of a couple which have been sold at this level for similar money.

    More to the point, it would be unlikely you would see those same cars on the open market. They quite often change hands without being advertised.

    I think the point is most good surviving DS's have benefitted from substantial investment at some point. I think the prices are starting to reflect that investment. Of course the examples provided are not sold, the "for sale" is a dead give away. My impression is that the ads provide are a pretty good indication of what people are asking for a good DS.

    A DS that was restored a couple of years ago and looked to be well used was auctioned in Paris last week.
    ...... it sold for a staggering amount.

    I'm not saying you can't find a tired old DS for a couple of grand, we all know they're around. I just don't think they're news worthy.

    Truth.
    Good cars change hands in a flash with a phone call and a wire transfer. They never make it to ad.

    Citroenfan bought a good wagon within about 15 seconds of hearing about it. Literally. 15 seconds. Didn't even have time to pick up the phone.

    What happened to that DS that George lusted after for years and owned for a short while. THAT would be a car that changes hands without ever being advertised.

    Woops, that was aimed at the guys in the USA. George has been on the Dseries lists "forever" and owned one spectacular DS a few years back.

    I think he sold it without advertising it. Somebody bought it for a staggering price, took it home, and squirreled it away to never be seen again.
