      Wow, three different tires.....

      Bradinc - listed a whole bunch of stuff "wrong" with the car and missed the tires.


      I worked for a dealer for a long time and when we would take a trade or go to auction one of the first things I looked at was the tires.

      If I walked up and the car had matching Michelins on it, I knew there was a pretty good chance the owner took care of the car. If I walked up and it had mismatched off brand stuff...I figured they did the bare minimum to keep it on the road.

      Wasn't always an exact science but it was a very good rule of thumb and worked well.

        So is this car a re-spray? Also, why isn't there an aux fan temp switch in the passenger side of the radiator?

            That's a good way of determining how an owner maintained a vehicle!

            Growing up, my dad always did the most basic maintenance to save $$. He'd insist on only buying two tires at a time.
            Drove me crazy as a kid, as he never rotated tires to wear them all evenly.
            Yeah, I was a strange kid...who's grown to be a strange adult :D

                Funny

                I don't see mismatch tires....I see someone who took the effort to pay a $6300 bill!

                To me that translates to a guy who either got ripped off or was worried enough about the car.

                Did I misread that bill? You guys are worried about mismatch tires?

                Really?

                  Nah, not worried. Just an observation.

                    I ain't worried about anything - just more observation.

                            If it was an m54 or Aluminium M52TU I’d be happier with it. S52 is too heavy

                              Not an auction but it's still BaT and there's a lot to like with this one.
