      The clear engine cover is a nice touch. Swap out the side markers for clear ones and it's all good.

      That is really, really well done.

      If only it was a year from now.

      In terms of pure driving enjoyment, I cannot find a car that would be more fun than that.

      Seems cool and all. But it makes me wonder why someone would pour so much time, money and effort into a project like this only to ditch it 1,500 miles later. Did it not meet the owner’s expectations? Are there latent build quality issues that will be difficult or costly to overcome? So many questions.

      This. Build it, and get rid of it does not look good from a buyer's perspective.

      Protip, don't take car pictures near trees. You will get weird shaddows and this will not make the car look at its best.

      "The seller states the LS3 ECU triggers a “higher than expected idle” code on occasion, and the Porsche ECU shows multiple faults as a result of the swap."

      I'm sure it's all good... I wouldn't worry about it too much. I bet someone buys it without a care in the world.

      It's already too much money but that's clean as hell in a very desirable spec and well maintained at 150k.

      Considering it sold for $11,900 in Nov 2018 I would say the seller has to be more pissed off than he/she seems to be in the comments.
      If you can't measure it, you can't understand it; if you can't understand it, you can't control it.

      3k really isn't worth ****ting your pants over. I'd say if thats all he burned in a year of Land Rover ownership he got off easy.

      No sunroof, cloth interior, manual trans) super clean and A+ maintained with no trouble lights or issues at 150k miles. Honestly, that’s about as good as it gets for a Discovery 1.

      It'd be interesting to track the results for cars on their first vs. second auctions. The few I remember seem to get 20-30% less the second time around.

      I feel like at least half the cars I look at on BaT were previously bought and sold on BaT. It’s basically a flipper site now.

      I don't think it's reached that volume, but you'll probably appreciate this comment thread where the seller gets into it with one of two commenters who had placed bids on the very same car at a tow lot auction some months before. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1990-audi-v8-3/
