I haven't spent much time in Knoxville, but have also been pleasantly surprised...

I was there one night for a work holiday party a few years ago (this was shortly after we announced we were closing an office where I had a small team -- so king of an awkward night). I've since driven through 3x on road trips (so stopped at the Supercharger).

There is a menswear shop in Knoxville that goes by the owner's first and middle initials and his last name -- all which are the same as mine, so maybe I have a parallel universe twin who is there

BAT requirements.
right around the time the accepted the listing, i got the first 'interested' post on Bimmerfest from a poster that had a 0 post count. The same poster also PM'ed me expressing an interest in the car. I said it was going up on auction and per rules, I would only sell it there and the poster disappeared.... sketchy.

As an aside, Bimmerfest sucks that they won't allow you to edit your posts after a couple of weeks. I couldn't get in touch with any admin or moderator either. Very annoying.

15 minutes left.

Josh, you must be pleased--that was high end of your estimate, wasn't it?

I had originally listed it on the forums for $12,500 and was happy with anything over $10. The last push exceeded all my expectations. I'm happy. Buyer is from the NY area so it should be a relatively easy deal closing (I assume no shipping).

Thanks to everyone here for the well wishes, comments, etc.
