I call SCAM.

Vin (BZ98964) comes up as a carbon black car with rear shades.

I thought i remembered this car. A member inquired about it like 1-2 years ago. It was being sold through a dealer that went I think went through ebay.

Why? Because these are the dealers images! Not this (supposed) owners, hence why the plate is blacked out.

The backdrops are the same:

Considering a car with the same VIN and mileage is listed at the following link, I'd call it a scam.

Could have been a person trying to get a free autocheck with a false listing.

Current: 08' TL; 13' CTS-Vagon
Finally... 03 E39 Carbon Black ///M5 (acquired Dec, 2016)

Saw that last night too. At first I thought it was a typo and they were asking for $40k.

Nope.

The seller also has a Disco II for sale. Maybe EAG beat us all to this "never raced or abused" automobile and it will be listed on their site very soon for $43,990.
