    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).

    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.

  11. #311
    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.

  13. #313
    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.

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

    Black/Crema Z8 on sale now on BaT https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2002-bmw-z8-42/ has an interesting radio installation with a major modification to the center console. Personally I do not care for the look or finish or the design with relocated control knobs to the cubby hole next to the handbrake. I was very surprised that no one had commented about it earlier (before my post). The car also has many cosmetic issues that can pretty easily be corrected - one would think they would have been taken care of before the auction.

    The relocation of control knobs to the cubbies looks almost factory, so no concerns there. But the radio installation looks poorly done.

    But why relocate them? I might understand if their goal was to install a Double DIN head unit for a backup camera.

    It sold for $175,000 which must have been due to the modification and the cosmetic issues that had not been addressed. Low for a Black/Crema with 30K miles.

    It's probably 5k in parts to get that center console back to original condition. And I think the parts are available. From the later comments on the listing it sounds like the custom indent is supposed to hold an apple ipad mini, which would look flush inside the indent. Would have made a big difference if someone knew that at the time the pictures were done and stuck the ipad on there, or clearly explained the setup.

    A 31K miles '01 Topaz/Crema just popped up on BAT.

    I'll be interested to see what the color premium is for this one.

    Marco, Looks like a very nice example. If it doesn't meet your reserve, put it on BAT.

    I am very puzzled with the entire Z8 market and BAT. I see listings outside of BAT that barely get any attention with prices that are, at least, rational for the current market. Then there is BAT with really unusual outcomes. Not sure what's going on. I can only call it the BAT effect. Not ready to call it a Ponzi scheme, but it is certainly strange. Come to think of it, the entire financial market is acting strange. Who would have guessed that people would line up to pay $40K for a bitcoin, essentially a string of bits based on what amounts to do a distributed spreadsheet.

  42. #342
    It is certainly a fascinating mystery, I feel like we're watching a new phenomenon being born where BaT in particular is becoming something of a 'high end' store, like Bergdorf-Goodman in NY or Harrods in London, where buyers are happy to pay a premium for the curation and visibility of the store/purchase.

    People will pay for the perception of quality, Volkswagen couldn't sell the exceptionally well reviewed Phaeton for 75k, so VAG the put a different body and badge on it, and couldn't produce it fast enough as the 175k Bentley Continental.

    Andrew, you are right. This site should have been the goto market for Z8, with what amounts to the most comprehensive coverage of topics related to Z8 and a lot of ownership history and lineage. I am sure in the long run it will.

    48,000 mile silver/red just went for $190k + $5k buyer's premium on BAT.

    This one looked set to break into the 500k's for the first time, but it fell just shy....

    Andrew,
    I'm inclined to believe the under bidder's excuse regarding connection issues.
    I had them while bidding on Buffy while on a high speed fiber connection. I was dropped twice and had to scramble to get back in.
    The table was set for $500k.

    Thanks for the nice post on BaT Andrew. The auction seems to be moving right along. I'm really enjoying the BaT process as I've been interacting with people online for many years now so responding to requests for photos and additional information is old hat. I enjoy the transparency of BaT. Although I always encourage anyone to come look at a vehicle in person or have a professional inspection done, I love getting notes back from thrilled buyers telling me the car I sold them far exceeded their expectations. I believe this is that kind of car. I really wish there had been time to do the soft top headliner, but I believe it's been adequately photographed so a buyer will know exactly what they are dealing with. I'll also be happy to share any research I have done on the replacement kit and that it's not an onerously expensive repair. Beyond that it's a very complete and ready to go anywhere car.
