Seriously, people are bidding on a car on ebay that theyve never seen before from people theyve never met.

26 bidders and over $137k on a car that isnt even in the country.

To me this is a great way to do business from the dealers point of view. But as a buyer it seems so crazy.

Good luck to the importer. I hope they can do well and prove themselves as there are plenty of good cars available, it all just seems a little too risky from a buyers point of view. If it works out great and they can build a good reputation, then thats a great outcome.

You have to start somewhere.

It has since been inspected and that car originally had 60 000 miles at it's last UK MOT inspection. Somehow from the uk to aus the Milage went backwards quite a bit to 32 000km. I'd give that car no more than $70k. They should have taken the $124k they got at auction a few months ago.
