    How do you feel about the final price? I felt it was a pretty good price.

    Keep us posted on the sale process please, I know there are others who are considering listing their cars and the process is getting mixed reviews

    Final price was fair - I had a feeling the car would fall in the 7-10k range. Given the time of year, color and transmission, I didn't think it would get to the upper range but there's always hope :)


    Seller has already paid BaT his buyer's fee and the rest of the transaction is on us. Not sure what would happen if he walked away now other than "sorry" but hoping that won't be the case.


    In terms of listing, I had to almost beg them to take the car. They have so many submissions that they are biased towards very expensive cars which of course net a higher commission, and on the lower cost cars there is a strong bias towards manuals. So if I had converted mine to a manual, they would have taken that off the bat (no pun intended) even though I feel the car has less inherent value because it's no longer stock.


    To take my car, they insisted I do no reserve, carfax, and have professional photos taken. Given the cost of the photos, I opted to take them myself and spent time reading their guidelines so they would be "right".

      BAT runneth over with E30 cabrios - six so far since mid-Nov. Right when it's time to put them away for the winter.

      I wish the Bronzit car had gone for more than $8k, but that's probably fair. White/cardinal sitting at $4,900 with 5 hours to go.

        $6000 now, I have a feeling it will go above the $8k that the bronzit went for, but not a whole lot more. We'll see... but yea a huge influx of verts, likely because they are the most likely to be completely stock.

        IX also ends today and is sitting at $4925 at the moment. I expect it to get to $7k+ also

          That iX was clean, I'm surprised it didn't sell for more.

                In totally unrelated news....maybe I'll win this 996 turbo since everyone keeps crapping on it for having paint that looks it's age: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/20...-911-turbo-29/

                Seller could definitely have done better.

                  Id say theres at least another 10k before you will be close to hitting the reserve. Doesnt look bad

                    I just saw something weird happen on the 996 auction. A user posted a thorough review of the car after visiting it in person at 12:52am. I read it on my phone and then later when I went to BAT on my laptop the comment was gone.... Maybe because he was a first-time user? But without this, someone is missing valuable information.

                    Check out the screenshot from my phone and then go look at the auction (maybe they'll put it back up because I asked about it). Just feels a little sketchy: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/20...-911-turbo-29/





                    Here it is missing from the auction:

                              I like that '88. Highish miles, some cosmetic needs but solid.
                              Original paint, no wrecks, no rust, factory 5 speed.

                              Probably a $7500 car.

                              My brain still thinks it should be priced at $3500 - $4500...

                                Yup. I would say $7,500 is right on the mark. We'll see...
