    B has probably already seen that.

    You gotta remember that B = internet, internet = B.

    i haven't seen this yet. To be honest, i frequent the bmw boards pretty rarely.

    i know your whole claim was no one would sell for msrp...
    this is obviously under msrp...

    and completely fucked up. he should own that car for 60k.

    but to be honest, i wouldn't even want it at this point. who the hell knows what they are going ot do to it before he picks it up. it's a total pain in the ass for 6k

    No one (me at least) claimed that Nebraskans were the smartest in all the land...

    Then again, I didn't even know there was a BMW dealership in Lincoln. That's as far as the other side of the planet as far as I'm concerned.

    I just re-read my post and realized I just proved my lack of intelligence, didn't I?

    Well, they didn't want to sell for MSRP. They expected that it would go for another $6k and they would be enticing bidders by having no reserve.

    I wonder if he'll actually get the car for $60k. The thread had 45,000 views as of yesterday. Its on digg.com and autoblog.com as well as linked from everywhere.

    Someone that knows the dealership posted that they were an extremely scummy dealership with slimy salesmen promoted from their pontiac dealership.

    If he gets the story on the air, he might actually get the car, either from this dealership or another one looking for good publicity.

    i bet this gets on leno or something. this isn't a dealership problem, it's a problem with one fucking salesman.

    if the guy sticks with it, he'll get the car for $60k, or wholesale. one of the two. odds are he just gives up though.

    I can't believe no one told that guy to contact the state attny generals office. Bait and switch is as illegal online as it is in real life.

    Well, I'll provide some cliff notes;

    It is a dealership problem because he has contacted multiple people and the GM won't return his calls.

    If it was a rogue salesman I could see the issue being diferent, but its the entire dealership.

    well, enough people know about it now i'm sure they wont buy from that seller. ebay might also block them from selling.

    i doubt anything happens in the long run though.

    Thats a very real possibility with ebay.

    If you search the feedback, they did this to someone with a Z06 the other month.

    eh, even if they do have their ebay account suspended, they'll just open a new one under someone else's name. Someone else can have an account and sell for that dealership.
