    All the potential times for an auction and he gets arguably the worst slot possible. I took photos for a guy's ad of his Landrover Defender and BaT took about 3 months before listing it once they got all the information. Their server crashed on the final day so no bidding could happen, and then they randomly reloaded the auction for a 2 day shootout without any real notice. Suffice to say, it didn't meet the reserve.
    I didn't see this go down, but briefly skimmed the comments.

    I guess it's a gamble listing when BaT dictates the reserve price, but the auction being at likely the worst time of year definitely would play a massive part too.
    I don't know how auction timing works, but it sounds like it's another shaft by BaT.

    Also I didn't realize it was a salvage car, and it strikes me as odd to use that specific car for a full restoration, but then again, it's a 318is so yeah

        Yeah, using that car for an "investment" project like this was the mistake. If he had more than $40k in parts alone then ouch... Restored as obsessively as it was, it will always be a grade lower than a car that didn't need the amount of work it did. The body turned out nice but I'd credit the rebuilt stroker motor for adding ~$10k to the final bid. Without that it's just a OEM+ restomod with shiny new hardware and some choice parts. I realize that's drastically underselling what's gone into this car, but I think that's the lesson here.

            Well, that's about as regular of an E30 as you can get, will finally be curious to see where it ends up.

                      Not any worse than 75% of the twin cam swaps on here.

                      Curious what the non butter'd up 91 will go for. Coolant leak, one jack point crush, pre molested state, dry rott tires. Might be a good buy.

                              already at $100k... seems quite strange though Im sure the guy who paid $33k for it 4 years ago is VERY happy...

                                Yeah those bids on the white M3 seem very suspicious. They make no sense. Came here to see what the rationale/hype was. Must be that aftermarket CD stereo. Something tells me that car will get relisted.
