      New 718 GT4 stripper ($109k MSRP) being sold after 300 miles.
      Owner didn't like the sound as much, and has plenty of other vehicles.
      Hot damn, my eyeballs just love that blue Porsche. So sweet!

      24k-Mile 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo 6-Speed
      Current Bid: $35,000 Ends In: 7:23:07


      (I do not like those wheels )




      Some major maintenance was done on that one, Meger cars are very reliable however they are getting to a point later in life when it is time to pay the piper with gaskets/hoses ect. Some cars had issues in the early cars with lifters requiring tear downs. Clutch accumilators are now ~$600 in parts to replace and they are a consumable depending how much or little you drive. Driving these cars more generally has less issues than the cars that are only taken out on sunny weekend days.

      01 and early 02's had issues with gear box detents because of poor shimming of the main shaft. This results in the 2nd gear syncro being destroyed and the cars will pop out of gear under decel load. If this happens figure $6-10k to go through the box let alone anything else you end up with going in there.

      They make fantastic sounds and are wonderful cars but with age comes cost as well as finding someone to work on them that knows what they are doing. While these are 20 year old supercars, they can be maintained in your own garage with a good selection of tools and plenty of time on your hands. Power is addicting with them and often ends up going down the rabbit hole until either your 401k has been wiped out or you cry mercy.

      No IMS to worry about on the Mezger motor, however the following are major issues:

      Front Differential bearings
      Coolant fittings leaking or blowing out $,$$$
      Damaged radiators $1600-2400 to replace all 3
      Coolant hoses are aged and there are a **** load of them $$$ and can be hard to get some times due to stock in the USA. Most come from Germany so figure a couple weeks at this juncture to a month.
      2nd Gear syncro wear & pop out $,$$$-$$,$$$
      Pinnion bearing wear $,$$$-$$,$$$
      Seized wastegates on turbos / leaking turbos $$$$
      Vacuum leaks/IC leaks $$$-$$$$
      Lifter failures $$,$$$
      Worn suspension items can get pricey if catching up on neglected maintenance $$$-$,$$$
      Interior rattles
      Spoiler hydraulic failure $1500-2500 to fix.

      Keeping $3-7k for upkeep or a major repair on hand is plenty to stay ahead on these cars. Turbos eat tires, figure 8-12k max for a set of tires, more so if you are heavy with the throttle and dont have a perfectly set up suspension.

      Mods are anything you can imagine with most Cup/RSR parts able to be swapped over as well as much later items from GT2/3/RS cars. Power can easily get into the 600whp range without going to crazy, however over that is when things start getting really expensive, if you want 700-850whp then figure head bolts and taking the motor all the way down. This will run $25k in parts easy and thousands in labor, it is easy to throw six figures at these car in going for 1000whp and they will do it, but be warned.

      I think you'll have better luck if you can find a MK3 guy to post them for you in some MK3 FB groups (assuming they're 4x100 VW fitment). Moderlines usually move fast since they're timeless on those cars

      I don't like the angles of the exterior shots (and getting in the backseat of an executive sized sedan for a cockpit shot is, as always, a real ballbuster for some), so you'll just have to click the link. This car should fetch a pretty penny.

      Yikes. Interesting that it sold for $55k back in 2017.

      I wish I was in a better spot to buy a spare car. I need to own an e39 M5 before I die and the value on those is increasing everyday. And, wow, is that one sure a fine looking example.

      It’s a beauty, for sure. What do you think this one goes for? $40k?, 60k? I’d sure be curious what the original owner sold it for earlier this year!

      Yeah, I don’t get it. FJ60 & 62 values are certainly rising but nothing less that a nuts and bots resto is worth those numbers imo.

      Looking through the comments it seems this is just bouncing from collector to collector.

      Honestly this seems to be the case with half the cars on BaT, they are just people or dealers trying to do quick flips on cars.

      I looked through the photos, and could not find a Porsche badge anywhere. I am at a loss for why this is so valuable. Is somebody really planning to go off-roading in an $80,000+ truck?

      The first two bidders have bid and never won on about 400 different vehicles. Are these simply there to drive up the price?

      As much as I loved mine, I could never own a MY 2000 one; the refresh took it to a whole new level IMO. Walking up to it and getting in was always enjoyable and it's because of the upgraded lights and interior.

      Fortunately there are still plenty around. Good luck!

      Interesting. I also noticed the last guy to sell it is on there really hyping it up. Is it the same group of collectors all shadow bidding and hyping each other‘s sales up to drive up values?

      Certainly possible.

      No, it’s going into a collection to be driven to the ice cream shop on occasion.

      The values are up on these, like most classic 4x4s. But you can buy a pretty nice one for around 20 grand now. And a decent driving off roader for even less than that.

      I like the look on the coupes, but the prices are way higher than the sedans. I've always preferred sedans for the ease of entry in a parking lot or garage, but you don't park that in a lot.
      2019 Tiguan SE 4Mo Orange, temporarily stock. 2001 Passat 4Mo wagon, 1.8T/6sp swapped, Konis, coilover sleeves, A6Q H+R Race springs.
      2005 Golf GLS, 2.Slow, Auto, GTI suspension, sways.
      2001.5 Passat GLX V6, stock. (son#1), 2000 Passat GLS V6 fwd Tip wagon, stock (son#2)

      Here's another one with more miles, but still under 100K, that won't go for nearly as much. No reserve.

      ...And another with 64K miles.

      Here we have the dawn of the E39, the closest you could get to an M5 at the time: A '97 540i 6-speed with only 32K miles:




      Also has an aftermarket head unit with a backup camera.

      The kids who grew up riding in the back of these have a lot of money to spend. Just like their parents did. It's not so weird.

      Paging Iroczgirl, it's another one of the dawn of the 5 Series itself: A '76 530 with a four speed manual:
