2018 prices according to that. Think we will ever see 2018 prices in merchants again? Less than 20 quid for sheet of OSB?

It depends on the car
Some of the used cars I've seen seem to have crashed in price

Where? I've got to find one for the mrs.😁

I think it's probably the less desirable cars
As I just look at cheap vehicles
I was always told cars are cheap unless you want something specific
As soon as you want something cool, something 4wd something fast they are expensive
Something like a Skoda Octavia
Or superb are so cheap
But no street cred

Now that is different

No Steel
No rubber
No chips
And covid manufacturing is tricky

I don’t think it’s long before it slows up but I’m not sure if prices are going to tumble

Its not like work vehicles though
Some have realized they can work from home and go down to one car per family.
Whilst others have excess cash so are treating themselves to something nicer than usual.
I think this has meant a lack of demand for the cheap run around sector.
Fair enough I'm probably looking at a different sector of cars than many on here but if you just want something to get you from a to b there are some really cheap deals if you arnt bothered by the badge on the front

I bought a Skoda octavia because it was for sale in next village and I cant be arsed raking around finding something - and im really impressed with it - good build quality - nice drive with 150hp 2l diesel that pulls really well - and its not look at me shouty 👍perfect kind of car to go pricing in 🙂
Second hand cars are maybe 40% dearer in France compared to u.k so it calms people down a bit or they lease a new one.
