Sell used car today is quite difficult. And some owners think that it is impossible. Unless, of course, we are talking about reasonable money. our source offers the advice of experts who are professionally engaged in used cars. But at the same time dispel some of the myths.Before the introduction of the preferential excise duties on imported cars from the European Union, have warned that prices for used cars in the domestic market will fall? Warned. And that “EuroBLECH” compete with budget used cars in the country, warned? Warned. As a result, we have what we have. But experts say that option is not deadlocked and there is a way. You just need to figure out what’s what – causes and consequences. And then sell the used car will be much easier.

Why buyers of used cars stopped calling on ads
The rating of the most sold models of cars in Ukraine for 2017

Prices have not changed
The company’s experts CarFinger Nikolay Samodurov (STO) and Maxim Shostya (SEO) believe that in 2017 (compared with 2016), the price of used cars has not changed. According to them, the car fell due to the natural aging process. CarFinger is a nationwide matching service that works with 2014, and specializiruetsya on the search and inspection of used cars in 16 cities of Ukraine.

Even after the introduction of the preferential excise duties and import cars from the United States, failure in car prices in the range of $10-25 million, CarFinger not noticed. A good car with a proven history, which was officially sold and registered in Ukraine, the price is not lost.

For example, Volkswagen CC 2012 year, as a cost in the region of $20 thousand in 2016, so he is minus a thousand and a half now. Nothing has changed, despite the fact that brought same machines from the USA. But the Americans was a disaster, and on the ads they cost $16 thousand because it’s the American version, and that she was in an accident. Plus – this may be a car power of attorney, because the car is cleared on concessional terms.

That is, if you look at ads for cars with twisted mileage, power of attorney and, possibly, previously broken, then Yes – the prices are lower. Creates the illusion that a used car cheaper, I believe in CarFinger. But really – it is not.

Import used cars for 2017 increased by 3 times. The most popular models
Statistics of sales of cars in Ukraine in 2017. The ranking of the most popular models

Real runs
If prices dipped, at all budget cars. In the price range from $2 to $5 thousand cars may indeed become worse to sell, because they are running out of “EuroBLECH”.

But, for example, in Germany or Switzerland, the car is good, doesn’t crash and with mileage of 100 thousand km, is not cheap. Sometimes even more than we do. But with a mileage of over 150 thousand km, prices in Europe have come down. Then it turns out to save about 20% of the price of such car in Ukraine.

Germans usually do not sell one-year machine. They sell when the car is over the warranty or lease period. It just happens in the 150-200 thousand kilometers, And it is necessary to understand those who “are” the stories of the sellers about how “grandma on the weekends to the store went”.

We must remember that European cars with mileage 150-200 thousand km (which is in Europe is normal mileage for a 4-5 year old machine), we are sold with mileage 85 thousand km. According to statistics CarFinger, more than half of used cars from Europe, sold in Ukraine with twisted mileage. And the older the car, the probability of “adjusted” run above. Even if its not tied the latest seller, then it must have been the previous one. So 90 thousand km can be some used cars a few times.

Named the most popular used cars in Ukraine

That is not for sale
In CarFinger believe that people have a psychological barrier. It is 100 thousand. no matter How much money. Therefore, it is easy to sell cars with mileage 170 thousand km, only if it is a commercial transport. Or very cheap.

Often the sellers, (especially those expensive bought your car in the showroom) don’t understand really how much the car loses in value every year. Sometimes a year-old car with a mileage of several thousand miles, trying to sell more than this car costs new in the showroom, citing the number of retrofitted “chips”. Naturally, such cars are not sold at this price.

Our people tend to overstate their expectations about the price at which they want to sell your car. And at the same time, the history of this car can not be traced, as it was served not on official service, and who knows where.

Cars that have not been re-painting body parts more liquid.

How to speed up sale
See deals on sites for similar models and form a reasonable price.

Put print in the service book or at least save the overhead about the service on the official service. Or head over to their stations, and ask them to print it. This adds value to the car, as it has a good service history.

A car always sells better than broken.

The car, which is really a 1 owner, have all keys and service history is more likely. Don’t forget to pay attention to it. Fortunately, not all of us are ready to reach the European semi-legal pawnshop.

When the machine shows the broker who is professionally engaged in sales, the car he’s always with pre-preparation. The owner of it often, at least, dirty. Sometimes inside not even want to sit down. Don’t be lazy, and don’t spare a small money on washing, dry cleaning and pre-training.

Learn to hear the buyer and within a reasonable to concede. Some sellers are deterred buyers the fact that the root hack trade. And in our mentality, it is customary to haggle.

The best cars are sold via the Internet. There are more offers and more buyers.

The car will always find its buyer, if he has a fair relationship price/quality.

The Federal security service uncovered large-scale fraud at dozens of gas stations where fuel was nedolovili. The crooks used a specially developed for this virus.

Underfill has been found at dozens of gas stations owned by major oil companies. Actually talking about all of the South of Russia: Krasnodar and Stavropol territories, the republics of the North Caucasus, underfilling is also found in Adygea and Kalmykia.

The owners of the gas station were not even aware that their objects drivers cheated, sometimes nedolia to 7% of the paid fuel. The investigation conducted by the FSB found that a hacker by the name of Denis Zaev, has developed a virus that began to offer managers of the gas station. Often it is not just sold its computer program, and also received income from stolen funds. The police say that we are talking about several hundred million rubles.

“Before, speculators used for theft at the gas station special “bugs”, then they were replaced by the viruses. However, they can be detected. Zaev has created a unique product. It and malware could not identify neither the Department of monitoring of oil companies that constantly carry out checks at gas stations or MVD. And we managed to set it by surgery,” — said the Agency “Rosbalt” a source in law enforcement bodies.

The FSB say that they had not encountered such a perfect virus, to discover that it was almost impossible. Malicious software embedded in the system cumulative counters, columns, equipment of the Straits, control and cash accounting.

The scheme worked as follows. One of the tanks station staff were left free. Each paid the gas station the infected software nedolovili from 3 to 7 percent gasoline. However, on the monitor, the operator on the column display that the tank is filled with fuel that is paid. Underfilled gasoline automatically went to free the reservoir, and the virus wouldn’t allow the system to make record of such Straits. Then, after the tank has accumulated a sufficient amount of fuel, sold it, and the virus helped to display in the accounting system transactions made by. All proceeds went into the pockets of the participants in the fraudulent scheme.

The publication writes that the complexity of the investigation and charges was the fact that the victims have written statements about fraud there, and the owners of gas stations no loss is not suffered and were not even aware of the fact that their gas stations someone is engaged in theft of fuel. While test purchases revealed underfilling 2-3 liters from one machine that would not allow to Institute criminal proceedings.

Therefore, the FSB was looking for the hacker who wrote the virus. In the end, Zaev was arrested, he was indicted for fraud on a large scale and creating and using malicious programs. Now according to the court, he is in custody.

  • Rosstandart intends to assign “star” rating of the gas station. However, the “stars” will only appear for those stations, who themselves will want to pass the test.
  • Fuel prices started to rise since the beginning of the year. Because January 1 was 50 kopecks increased excise. At the same rate, he will rise on 1 July this year.

For many years the Volkswagen Golf tops the charts of popularity in the European market. For the company this model is very important: despite the onset of crossovers in the past year on various version of the Golf had more than half of all Volkswagens sold worldwide (and 3.4 million units in total sales of 6.23 million units).

Therefore, the preparation for manufacturing of new generation started in advance.

About the eighth generation Volkswagen Golf, nothing is known: the company maintains a veil of secrecy over it. One can only assume that the appearance of the machine, major changes will not undergo. “No good deed goes unpunished”, the Germans are unlikely to risk the sales volumes for the revolution in design.

Absolutely Golf will receive if not a completely Autonomous driving system, semi-Autonomous, allowing the driver to transfer the electronics speed control and holding in his band, both on highways and in urban traffic.

To light a cool car in the video not only like gangsta rappers, but quite decent musicians. Sometimes a car becomes not just a backdrop or props for the video, but plays a key role in the plot. We carefully selected for you dozens of the most entertaining automotive videos with high artistic value.

Jamiroquai — Cosmic Girl

British funk-Jamiroquai staff repeatedly broadcast clips with sports cars. It is not surprising! Team leader Jay Kay is a real “benzilovyj”: he enjoys cars and has gathered an impressive collection of rare and expensive cars. In fact, the video for the song Cosmic Girl album Travelling Without Moving is pure automotive drive — and nothing more. In the process of filming the video was broken, a write-off supercar Lamborghini Diablo, and not the standard version, and “limitka” SE30, which was released only 150 pieces. Lit up in the video and other cars — Ferrari F355 Berlinetta and Ferrari F40, the latter for filming was provided by the Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, also a big fan of fast machinery. By the way, he was driving his Ferrari at the time of shooting.

The Cardigans — My Favorite Game

The soloist of the Swedish team “the Cardigans” Nina Persson in the company plush cat Felix is practicing dangerous driving on the highway somewhere in the American Mojave desert, driving a convertible Cadillac Eldorado 1974 release. As the cruise control is very savvy she uses a rock picked up on the roadside. No good trip is not the end: a Cadillac crashed into a Ford Econoline van that carries other participants Cardigans. The Director of the video was predusmotren four finals history: in the most humane Nina wipes her blood and goes on the road, and in the future hard path continues only the head character is separate from the body.

Red Hot Chilly Peppers — By The Way

The leader of Californian rock band Anthony Kiedis catches a taxi on the street, which is traditionally yellow sedan Ford Crown Victoria with a not too adequate driver behind the wheel. Recognizing the passenger of the known musician, the taxi driver starts to drive like a madman, just in case locking the car doors. Worried this course of events Anthony sends via pager (surely in 2002 they were?) message friends that are on Ford Bronco 1966 go to the rescue. Breaking a window, the musician gets out of a taxi and jumps in a Ford. Good luck! But it was already found himself another victim — another musician RHCP Chad Smith.

OK Go — Needing/Getting

The band OK Go, playing alternative rock, famous not so much for its music as creative video clips. One of them hatchback Chevrolet Sonic (this car is known as the Aveo) not only plays a role of means of transportation, but even performs the function of a musical instrument. The car was tied of all possible means of sound production which operate when the vehicle is moving on a specially constructed track. In General, no words can describe this performance is absolutely pointless — it is necessary to see once.

Jamiroquai — White Knuckle Ride

Another video of the British team, more than worthy presence in the top 10. It is possible to observe how the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 for all time runs away from the helicopter, which commands the aforementioned Jay Kay (apparently, the list of interests of the musician are not just sports cars). Porsche at full speed rushes through the desert, raising clouds of dust, fully justifying the title of the song “stunt driving”. By the way, Jamiroquai, there are other clips involving cars — in particular, Cloud 9 and Love Foolosophy, where you can also see a rare old-timers. But we really did not make our hit parade in the benefit of one artist. Let’s give and show off to others!

M. I. A. — Bad Girls

British singer of Tamil origin mathangi arulpragasam (better known as M. I. A.) in 2012, shot a video for the song Bad Girls (Bad girl), which won the award for “Video of the year” at the MTV Video Music Awards and a Grammy. What makes this work remarkable? The clip is filmed in Arabic entourage, where Oriental girls are behaving inappropriately, setting up drift cars and performing all sorts of stunts. In the video lit up with such cars as the Alfa Romeo 156, BMW series (body E36 and E46), Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W210), and “pumped” Peugeot 404 Break, 1965.

Calvin Harris — We’ll Be Coming Back

Scottish musician and DJ (this is not one and the same?) with the alias Calvin Harris (actually his name is Adam Richard Wiles) shot a video for one of his compositions, where the representative of law and order in quite a modern motorcycle Yamaha YZF-R1 chasing the robbers in a rather classic Ferrari 512 BB sports cars and the Porsche 911. Judging by the ending of the clip, the COP turns out to be a werewolf, and not the fact that in uniform.

Audioslave — Show Me How To Live

In 2003, the American rockers led by the late Chris Cornell shot a video for one of their hits based on the film “Vanishing point”. As in the movie, one of the key roles played by the muscle car Dodge Challenger R/T 1970. The plot of the clip, in General, echoes with the add of the movie is a one big chase with a sad ending. In addition to the Dodge in the video include the classic Jaguar E-Type — the role of this machine is episodic.

Robbie Williams — Supreme

The video is a former member of boy teams Take That to the Supreme song about a great love was dedicated to the legendary racer of the Formula 1 Jackie Stewart. Video semi-documentary: this thread of the racing chronicle, bonded storyline about a fictional pilot Bob Williams, who is also involved in the 1970 world Cup, but is accidentally locked in the trailer (for what it is — see the clip) and thus losing hope for the title. In the video you can see the “formula” of that era: March 701 (on this machine were made by Stewart), Ferrari 312 B2, MS120 Matra and Brabham BT33.

Gorillaz — Stylo

The band Gorillaz is a purely virtual project of musician Damon Albarn and comic book artist Jamie Hewlett. A sort of singing cartoons. However, in the video for the song Stylo from the animation only the characters in the gang (they are also members of the group), and all the other actors is quite real — including Chevrolet Camaro 1969 where “gorillas” coming to America. Being caught for speeding, they become objects of the chase, all the cops Dodge Coronet participates and who do you think? — Bruce Willis Chevrolet El Camino 1968. The story ends slightly fantastic.

These machines are externally indistinguishable from friends, familiar to all citizens of the Soviet Union. But under the standard body hiding the other units and the dynamics of the vehicles was comparable to foreign cars of the same age. These machines are sometimes called “catch-up”. They worked in the KGB, including in the 9th authority responsible for the protection of the first persons of the state.

Fifteen years ago, the retired chauffeur of the 5th Directorate of the KGB told me that he started his career at the Moskvich-407 engine Volga GAZ-21. Then heard the story about the party 412-x Muscovites from Izhevsk volgovskoe motors and Ufa sports two-shaft engines. But no documents I have, at least not yet. So let’s talk about the more famous and studied the secret machines of a bygone era.

The first cars were made from the famous “emok” GAZ-M1. Instead of the standard 50-horsepower engine put Ford V8 3,6 l, 65 HP or 3.9 liter, 95 HP As the body of “emka” was also Ford’s design, large motors fit into it without any problems. For an upgraded “m” — GAZ-11-73, equipped with a 6-cylinder engine, copied from the Dodge motor for the NKVD put a forced version of the American Assembly. Just made more than one hundred special “emok.” Well, after the great Patriotic secret modifications had all the mass gazovskih model. Talk about them a little more…
