      $21k with 1min left. Still very cheap for a near-new car with the ultra rare sport seat option.

      Once seated, they would be glorious.

      Ingress and egress would suck.

      Flatter bottom seats are better for not track driving.

      I'll sacrifice the awkward entry/exit but spouses/passengers might not.

      Just a thought for future reference.

      I'm going to go out on a limb and say that your roads probably get more/better maintenance than around here, but your winters do soooooo much more damage that it more than compensates. Dollars spent per mile of road would tell, assuming that's available info.

      We probably get something like 10-15 days with snow on the roads here, but St. Paul? Yeah, more than that.

      It's probably a mix of inefficiently spent dollars and overwhelming amount of maintenance needed. Busy roads that see heavy truck traffic should probably receive a mill and overlay once every 10 years here (Narrator: they didn't.), but city pothole patch crews try their best to make up for potholes and expansion cracks that then get worse every time a snowplow blasts past them and we go into a heavy precipitation then deep freeze cycle 5-15 times a winter.

      I was just going to post about this. The interwebs chatter about this auction result is pretty negative.You aren't going to find that many 27K mile Integra Type R these days. 27K miles isn't necessarily low and BAT has sold some 30Kmiles and 40K miles ITR for the mid-$20K range within the last 6mos. So how does this one jump to $65K?



      It's possible it's a conflation of a very strong economy mixed with Gen_X'ers starting to buy their dream toys. I personally don't subscribe to the "BAT is rigging auctions" crowd, although they are getting far more vocal lately.

      This one belongs to a friend of mine here in Danville, who also owns a bunch of other very nice auto hardware. I'm the guy who suggested that he try selling it on BaT, so I hope it ends well!

      If BAT is rigging auctions eventually an employee will spill the beans and all hell will break loose. I highly doubt it.

      I think the main driving factor for this particular R was it's one owner, almost completely stock status. Refinishing the wheels makes it nearly pristine.
      I don't understand why people keep arguing about this ****. It's very simple. The people that couldn't buy these cars new are now in their prime earning years. Many of those 40something buyers have made a lot of $ in tech jobs. 90s-early 2000s cars are going to keep skyrocketing.70k is a lot of money but it's not a lot of money to many people.

      Ultra low mile AW11, though the engine compartment is shockingly dirty this thing looks amazing. It would be perfect without the side skirts but that's an easy fix. My buddy had an 85 and later a 88 AW11 in which we spent many a night cruising the strip looking for girls. I loved the high rpm 4AGE engine and the go kart like handling. I drove an 87 AE86 GTS at the time which has become more of a legend than the MR2 but I always preferred the 2. If I had space and cash I'd be willing to go up to $15,000 on this car to bring back those teenage memories.

      I've never been a huge fan of this era design, but this seller definitely massaged the details (the wheels and ride height help a lot) to get this wagon looking like the best example of a non -M E61 I can recall. I also was unaware that there were 535xi tourings to be had with 3 pedals from the factory.
      Ahhhh, the famous BAT Tax .

      Bizarre. Both of those wagons were sold by BMW of Encinitas and both were bought back by BMW.

      What you described is a dealership sales ploy, and has nothing to do with BMW corporation. These cars were bought back by bmw as lemons.

      I mean, you'd need to clarify - was it BMW AG or was it your local BMW dealer? If it's a dealer, that's just a marketing ploy.

      I think there is more negativity towards this one when a 2300 mile 97 spec went for around the same or slightly less at Barrett jackson. I and I think a few others also think the 97 maybe have gone for more if it was on BAT instead of Barrett jackson
