huh, you know SOMEONE is gonna get some of those cars, then sell it off, but the thing is those cars won't show up as FLOOD cars, so if your car shopping in about 2 months time, be cautious if you find a 2003 M3 for $15,000, you should check for seaweed in the intake manifold, or for fish under the SEATS!!!!
