It is time for a huge price drop.
Now I'm prepared to take $30,000 or best offer.
Need to leave very soon, so I'm ready to negotiate.
Also gonna try BaT once again, maybe this time they'll approve it.

Our auction team mentioned there wasn’t one particular driving factor for turning down your submission, and that you did nothing wrong in filling out the form".
After my next message explaining a bit about my B5 and an offer to lower the reserve, no one even bothered to respond. Also they didn't publish my comment, that I attempted to post under the 1981 B7 Turbo auction. Very shady and unprofessional in my opinion.
One of the many issues with BAT is they have no competition. What was a great site to get good cars at good prices (for both parties) has turned into a site that is concerned only with garnering the highest bid, not with obtaining actual value.


Ive seen some real duds on that site where you can tell they are just playing to what they think is the hot market (and so does the seller) but the cars arent worth half of what their unmet reserve was.

Agreed. They have some very interesting auctions, but at the same time there are several regular ones in my opinion, like E60 550i or E38 740i. Just odd.

Anyways, I've tried once again with much lower reserve. Will see what they say.

Tried BaT once again with the same outcome. Will also list it on eBay.

I hope that a true enthusiast will pick it up.

To those who sent me private messages recently - thank you!

Unfortunately, I can't PM you back, because I don't have enough posts.

Latest offer was too low. If it will not sell for more than $20K, I'll find a way to take it with me.
