$35K? Uh yeah. Based on the advertisement it's more like a $45k to $48K car

The pictures and the autocheck show the car is in vegas, but the location says iowa. It looks like the car was also sold in July by a BMW dealership in vegas. The autocheck shows the mileage in June at 14k but the listing says 32k. The seller has zero feedback and just created their account yesterday, so seems very sketchy.

Yeah who puts up a reserve auction and then in the description tells you the 'price' and asks you to email him. I'm considering going down the rabbit hole just so I can post the email exchanges here haha.

Hello,

I saw your auction for the 2011 BMW M3 on eBay. Your description says that the price is $35,000 but I see that the auction price has already gone up to $35,200. I would potentially be interested in purchasing the car from you for the original $35,000 price quoted. I also have some questions and would like to know more about the car:

The listing says it is a Dinan M3, is it the 4.6L Dinan stroker model? I have been searching for one of those for a long time. Does it have other Dinan parts as well? If so which ones?
How long did you own it and why are you selling it?
Did you have any mechanical issues with it while you did?
How much time and/or how many miles are left on the warranty?

I am very interested in this car so please let me know whats going on with the sale, thanks!!

Most of the time I've found these scammers to be very willing to answer a lot of questions. Often they'll just heap lie on top of lie, making the end product that much more hilarious. Seriously, a Dinan Stroker? But he'll probably say it is
