Which reminds me, I will never EVER list a car on an enthusiast forum again. Wow. The buying crowd here seems to want to get a steal, not a deal. I get PM's all the time asking if I will sell it for KBB trade-in value. WOW! Word of advice, if you want a KBB car, you go look for it on the KBB listings. Not all cars will judged by the KBB value. A nicely modded, well maintained enthusiast's car with a few thousand $$$ worth of add-ons is not exactly your KBB car.

There are currently 2 people from Craigslist pretty much fighting over this car. I dropped the price to $13,500 for this weekend only, just to be able to move it in time for my f30. Well, they both over-bid over each other and drove the price back up again to $14k (compared to $10k and $11k I was getting here). Will see tomorrow.

Even eBay bidders, placed bids as high as $13,900 last week, when the car was priced at $14,900.

In my experience, enthusiast forum buyers -

I would have really liked to see this car go to an enthusiast from the boards. Disappointing.
