    I like the sedans, but almost $8k for that 318 with 220,000 miles car does seem awfully high.Thoughts on the sedan being auctioned now?

      Given how picky BaT is, the AC will hurt the value.

      The difficulty is finding a shop that will recharge R12 refrigerant on any older car of the generation.
      Yeah no kidding, you're about 20 years late to the party if you think you're likely to call around and find an AC shop that will refill your system with R12 these days. If you want to do that you're best off doing it yourself... Even a working R12 system is a liability to a buyer, because finding a shop that will recover the refrigerant and reseal the system before it all inevitably leaks out is not likely.

          Decent at best

          I assume nothing happens now until the last day. Any predictions from you experts?

            It looks like its off to a good start for a no-reserve. I am hoping it trickles up to $20k for the final days action. Would really help if someone comes to check out the car and reports on what they saw lol

              These just don't do anything for me. I'm sure there is someone out there that will love it, but I'd rather take the sedan current up for auction.

              Did I just say that!?!

                        Sold for $34,500. That's a good chunk of change for an E91, but I can't help but feel it's one of the few cars we've seen in this thread lately that was worth the price paid given just how good it seems. It's like an AMG wagon for people who don't want to break the bank with maintenance, repairs, insurance and fuel costs.
                        Knowing the young gentleman that built that car, your description is 100% spot on. The haters are just the e90 crowd saying that mods don't add value and they could build it cheaper, given you can get a 335d for around $6-14K, depending on mileage and options. What most forget is even starting with a $6K car, that wagon had at least $15K of mods on it, let alone the time to get the harness to work like oem, etc. Plus it's currently the only diesel e91 in NA currently!

                          I had a 88 M3 posted that bidding ended 7-6-19 , my reserve was $43k , based on the previous month, (2) also white sale price . Well my car got to the last moments of bidding & my (2) high bidders both crashed and bidding was a no sale at 37,500. I was able to keep the money going on my own & almost got to reserve . Sold it myself ! After that Ive heard of other of other crashes at that last moments is all I can say about that , a store to tell

                            Seems like no reserves are just coming left and right:

                              That wagon is inspirational. Had an e39 528it come in and the owner bought a 540i with a m/6 as a donor car. After some paperwork, apparently the next project here at the shop is an e39 540it m/6 m-sport.
