        They're really not that hard to find on the Japan auctions. I see similar mileage/conditions every week. This type of exposure on BaT is might (probably) drive the prices up on the Japan side.

            So tempted to try to correct some of the wrong, ill-informed comments, but it'd be like a game of Whac-A-Mole.

                Hey guys , remember that insane price someone “paid” for a vert? Turns out they didn’t actually pay for it... I really think BaT needs to figure out a way to get the buyers to pay otherwise sellers have zero protection, BaT gets their fee and ultimately people will lose confidence in selling with them

                  Sweet

                  Always had a soft spot for that red MT2 vert. Really checks off all the bells and whistles. Unclear what that will fetch but I hope the seller makes a killing.

                    Doesn't the buyer have to pay 5% of the final bid price? I would have thought that would be a big enough deterrent.

                      Yup and apparently he did this on 3 cars so he lost thousands, but 3 sellers got nothing out of the deal except a bad experience

                        Buyers can file a chargeback with their Credit card company. more than likely he didn't pay a dollar to BAT.

                          Im pretty sure they cover their own asses in their T&C when you place a bid that its non-refundable if you win an auction. They should have more protections in place for the sellers too

                            10/10 agreed. I have lost complete confidence with them and will share my story everywhere I can. What an absolute joke of a site.

                                This happens to a shocking # of cars on BaT. Good thing so many people pay attention to it as an indicator on market values.

                                I see it similar to the real estate market now, I sold my house recently and found that the "offer" price is really just a get your foot in the door price, and means little else aside from getting you a spot in line to buy. Seems to be the same for BaT except no one knows the outcome and the line is cut off as soon as the auction ends
