    Unfortunately I probably won't be receiving it for another 1-2 weeks. Transporters are slammed and having Mecum in Dallas this week and Barrett-Jackson in Houston next week is getting in the way of the Z8 traveling from TX to CA as soon as I'd like. But at least there won't be any seat wear in the car! Seller has been great, providing answers to my questions and detailing out what comes with the car (beyond what was mentioned during the BaT listing).

    2000 Red over black

    Oh no, that's super sad, it means we're losing one of our most notable motoring members.

    Can't blame anyone for selling. I'm seeing the price of a couple of my cars triple in value...seems like inflation is here, people getting out of cash and buying assets.

    Yes, alas: If all goes well, I will be bereft of Z8s by this evening.

    Satch, I think you are jumping the gun a bit- your auction doesn't close until tomorrow evening. That said, good luck with the sale, and please don't hesitate to visit here in the future as a bereft former owner....

    Congrats to Satch. $230K seems like a pretty good result.

    Satch - Congratulations on the sale! Sorry to see that you are now Z8less, but hopefully one day you will have the keys in your hand again and hopefully you will stay active here sharing your vast knowledge of the Z8 as well as BMW in general. It would be fantastic if you could share with us the process with BaT from the initial discussions, tweaking the text template for the post, setting the reserve, and getting Buffy finally launched on BaT. I know I am not asking much... but this would be a great read.

    Z8Doc’s BaT auction

    Not sure how this highly respected member’s BaT auction has gone without a mention here. What a special, well tweaked, and enhanced car! GLWA!!! Less than 24 hours to go.

    Auction ended earlier today and with moderate last minute activity today. Ended and sold for $221,000. I expected between $220,000 to $225,000 based on recent other auctions and looks like I was pretty close. Many of you commented during the auction on BaT and I appreciate everyone's support. BaT wanted to list the reserve a lot lower than what they should and I had to negotiate with them a bit to set the reserve fairly high. Not sure if this is generally how they do things as I am sure it is not good for them when a car goes unsold so their motivation is different than mine as I am / was not a desperate "have to sell" seller. Overall, good experience.

    And they keep coming! This one looks like it could be another high price one. Great color combo, photography, PP, and all the extras and more. There has been 28 previous listings in 2021 and only two did not meet the reserve.

    Jeff,
    How long did the whole process take from contacting them to sale?
