$17,000 - most bidders there are not aware of what those extra parts are worth
well, it's already above $17k and two days to go. I guess some of our regulars here are bidding?
Ok so I’m late to the game even though I started it. Therefore my bid doesnt count. It’s currently at $18k. I think you will see a run. My guess under price is right is 22k. That said I think it will be much closer to 20.5. But mine doesn’t count. Sorry, had some other things get in the way and should have posted sooner... frankly the car stuff is out of wack. We are in a car bubble in my opinion. Run of the mill Porsche are bringing stupid money.
Looks like a nice GP, but a RMW BVH and a race cam with no header? That's crazy. Also, I think the RMW Race cam requires a Vipec ecu.
I guess it had to be CA smog legal at some point in its life.
SOLD FOR $18,250 ON 9/11/19
Damn I was over by only $250.00
Wow - thought it would go for a little more than that.
and keeping a steady stream of GPs going - here' sone with allegedly less than 4k miles (some carfax discussion in the comments about a 13950 mile entry). Bidding already at $20k, so not one for those with a regular Mini Cooper budget
Well current is $27750 with 4 hours to go and a nice debate going on the mileage posted and the carfax discrepency. I do not like carfax as it is not 100% reliable or at time accurate, sometimes overblown and only helps the dealers steal cars at trade-in. With that said, I think $27K is to much and this GP while pretty might smell a little.
Carfax relies on mechanics to read and enter the mileage. They may know how to fix engines, but many are dumber than a sack of parts they forgot to reinstall on cars they worked on.
I'm sure that the Carfax for Rufus, the 2006 JCW I bought a few years ago is completely messed up. It was a Canadian spec car, so it read distance in Kilometers. When the owner imported it to the US, he changed the gauge face to read MPH, but left the computer showing the # of KM driven in the odometer. US mechanics reported this number as MILES and not KM, so it looks like the car had 138k miles in Carfax, when it was actually 138km (86k miles) when I bought it. I had the computer switched to show miles when I bought the car, but now Carfax is going to show a car that suddenly went from 138k miles to 86k miles and say that I'm a fraud.
Garbage in, garbage out.
The incorrect mileage in the carfax is likely due to a mechanic reading the next service interval number in place of the odometer actual miles.
27.7k for that car is far too much. For me, that is Audi RS4 territory.
the final minutes of this auction are quite entertaining. Some people REALLY want this car that costs more than my three minis plus my Outback combined...
sold for $36,000 (no typo)
Someone really wanted that car in the worst way.
And sold $36000, way over priced, I think even if you have a shred of intelligence, you might think this one smelled a bit, but maybe someone is a lucky owner now, but it will not be a driver on daily I am sure.
Wow! I can’t believe it!
Wow, if I was going to consider paying $36k for a 27.7k mile GP, I would have seriously thought about the one on eBay a couple of weeks ago for $41k as it was advertised with less than 300 miles.
Both of those make the 14 mile GP that sold for $36k last year look like a steal.
Ok folks, here's another one, this time #0553 with 14k miles. It's in Florida. Seller shows a lot of paint gauge images, so clearly aiming at a collector bidder to make him rich. I looked at a 14k car in Chicago a few years ago, and didn't feel that car was worth the $12k they were asking... I'm sure I'd make a bundle with that one today if I had bought it then.
So where will this price go? I am guessing $25k
I will say 24k
