Currently at $5,500 5 days left.
I’d like to say that with falls cooler temperatures people would come to their senses but probably not so I’ll guess high at 26k.
Another very clean GP, but man... you can get a clean face-lifted R53 for a fraction of that and have lots of fun modding and driving without ever having a second thought about 'destroying a classic.' I couldn't bring myself to buy one when I went looking for my R53 for that very reason. I knew that I'd wanna mod it and it just wouldn't feel right. I get people wanting one. I've driven one. I just don't think I could do it (well... maybe if I had unlimited funds and another R53 in the garage to play with).
FYI: I love my red space cloth seats. They clean up spectacularly, but a friend of mine in Texas had an upholstery shop swap the cloth in his GP seats with perforated grey leather, which looked beautiful and really dressed up the interior (Again... a stealthy, tasteful mod, but did he 'destroy a classic' by doing it?)
Up to 18K with 4 days left.
I would keep it stock and drive it when I wanted to drive a slow OEM car. My car has so much more power and a better suspension.
Looks to be the start of crazy money.
$20,100 with 2 1/2 hours to go. This will go up if there are 2 or more who really want it. I think the trick to get crazy money is to take 20 pictures of a paint depth gauge all over the car. Subliminal "collector car" message.
Looks like there are 3 bidders who want this GP. I think if it doesn't go higher it won't meet the reserve.
SOLD FOR $26,750
I was not going to pay a penny over 26,749.99! Thats why I did not bid.
Wow almost 27 grand for an original GP. I highly doubt any GP 2 or 3 will go for that used.
remember this one?
WOW $1250 less. Get it while its hot!
Looks like someone used credit card to buy it and just got the bill..... hahahahaha
Wow - that is a fast turn around for sure...
Ok, cash in all your Christmas gift cards to put a bid in on this 8k mile GP example
Location: Chattanooga, Tennessee
looks totally stock, comes with the GP custom car cover and Mini branded wash bucket
3 owners, first one had it 10 years and 3500 miles.
I am guessing that this one won't sell as high as the recent low mile examples, mostly because the seller picked he wrong time of year to let it go. Everyone is broke. My guess is it'll bid to $22,000 and that likely is below the reserve.
You know, it's hard to say what will happen...back when I sold new Porsches for a living, Christmas was one of our best weeks....and I was surprised how many were bought by women for their "significant other". 3 owners in 8K miles is interesting....the average does seem to be around $22K
It's also interesting to me that the 2013 versions bring about the same money, even tho they are 7 years newer, have more HP and have benefited from more development in the suspension, brakes and even interior.
maybe my estimate was too low - 6 days to go and already $19,053
you may also want to check the RMW powered 2003 for sale. Not sure what's up with the check engine light, but it looks like a nice example with a 1.8L stroker. Seller states the motor was installed at about 50k so it has about 36k on it, and overall. I just ask why you would bother with anything other than 2005/06 when putting that kind of money into upgrades. I am not in CA, so the smog stuff doesn't bother me right now, however, I have too many cars and literally just want that motor, not the rest of the car. No reserve auction, though, so high bidder gets it.
I's like to know more about the exhaust setup (cat?), but nice wheels and KW coilovers point at a pretty decent build that could be a great deal if you want a whole car and spend some dollars to sort it out.
Seems like there's another GP on BAT now.
Shit, just realized I'm late to the game as usual!
