Wow. You know the only reason that guy posted was the strong money for the other one.

yeah, but the mileage difference will make a big difference in the spread between prices

I have a feeling that BaT has cars lined up in advance for putting on auction... Probably had both in queue and only had the second one listed after the first one closed. IMO....
I think that is why we see a string of M5's listed - but only one at a time (at least one of a chassis type).

Not always. There was one week I remember three E39 M5 auctions where going. All closing different days but still.

I think it's a combination. They seem to parse cars of particular interest like G-wagens out slowly, but for cars like 911s and M5s that are on a pricing tear these days, they flood the market a little more. Or maybe there are just more sellers of those cars looking to cash in.

This one is almost exactly like my old one. I didn't realize the M5 wheels would work on Xis--they look amazing

That will be very interesting to see what it sells for.

I always thought the idea of this car was soooo much better than the execution.
