My Ebay Car


#1

Well, after ~2,000 miles I'm back. Here's the car I bought off Ebay.

Special thanks to Dan McVicker and ~Karma~ for offering me a place to stay. (And Justin Wanker too, even though you were nowhere close to where I was going.)

Oh, wait. That was the car that got totalled when some schmuck blew a stop sign and I T-boned him. Car had 179,000 miles, my wife bought it new - definitely got our money's worth.

Here's my upgrade from the Ford Tempo.

Where'd you buy the car from? A private seller or dealer? I currently have a car being shipped from Texas that I bought off Ebay.


#5

Warhorse,nice Bimmer...5 series?


#6

Yep, it's a 1999 528i.

Bought it from an auto wholesaler for thousands and thousands less than a dealer or private party would ask/get.

Auto wholesalers buy traded-in/repossessed/seized vehicles at rock bottom prices and you can get great deals if you're careful.

Damn.

It's too bad I didn't get a chance to see it in person!

Yeah Warhorse. I got a 95 4runner that someone didn't pick up the lease option for less then Edmunds and KBB listed prices. I can't wait for it to get here. I'll be able to lug all my trainign equipment to the park much easier then in my cavalier.


#9

LOL. There's always good deals to be found, and there's just something really satisfying about finding good deals.

Man Warhorse, that Tempo is one pile of shit! I mean it's worse than mine and I didn't think that was possible!
