eh maybe. prices have largely tanked for these cars. who wants to pay 11k for a 13 yr old car with rust on it and needing maintenance? i sure dont and neither do most.

its past the time to get that kind of money for one of these unless its in tip top shape...or you luck out and find an uneducated buyer who just sees an M emblem and whips out his cheque book.

that doesnt stop many from asking way to much.

You got a point, but I've met 540IM before and he is really finicky about his cars. (Hi 540IM)

He wants to change his headlights just because there are small surface scratches inside the lens. His 540i is really clean and I hate him for it.

So I don't know how bad those rust/rock chips were, but if the car gets sold within a day to somone from Toronto, you know its a STEAL.

Phil, was thinking the same thing. But I suspect the poor picture is on purpose for that price.

Paging Zarbat! Not sure if that'll show up but it's a 2001 540i at an auction...

Looks clean, its a 540 *shifty*, low mileage , and doesn't give more details.


Aren't most auction cars those that dealers can't sell, some sort of problem or fishy history?

I've never bought from auction before. Is there any way to inspect these cars (paint, under car, etc) or are they sold as-is?

There's usually an inspection period a couple of days prior to the auction. This kind of auction could be anything from an estate sale to repo...

Ah, good to know.

Any fees involved? Do I pay full tax? I bet one can get a nice car for a steal if someone doesn't outbid you.

I bet most people there are dealers looking to buy hondas/toyotas.



Someone buy this! Badass.

I've seen a lot of 635 csi come by for sale and never at a price so low. If the rust is reasonable I'd say that's a great deal.
