You could do a reserve. BaT frowns on it and will pressure for not having one... but F 'em. There is a lot of loose money on BaT. Could go either way.

I don't enjoy BaT but there is an entire community who watches a bunch of auctions, comments, vets cars, and sometimes bids so if you've got a good vehicle it usually does better there than elsewhere. I think it's a great place to sell, bad place to buy, and sad place if you are looking to own a "rarer" vehicle. BaT has almost single handedly taken the E30 tax to new extremes with clean examples of lightly modded (even engine swapped) 325i coupes selling for as much as e30 M3's did only 5 years ago.

^Take that with a grain of salt though. LOL. I have been experiencing a bit of sour grapes regarding BaT due to looking for an E61 6spd and seeing them now going on BaT for $25000+. I understand rarity and all, but it's disheartening.

I'm tempted to, but from what I gathered, aside from a I-6 5spd or two, they never listed a 4.8is.

Kinda love-hate the comment section
It seems one troll can spoil a last minute auction with rubbish/unknowledgeable info.

GLWS though!

With my BaT experience, and from what I understand, is that if you don’t secure a reserve price, they will force the seller to accept a heavily devalued auction price/no-reserve. They don’t care about the seller per say; the seller paid their $100 listing fee. Their real revenue is generated off the sales commission. How can they generate sales commissions if everyone puts a reserve on their sale? Not going to happen. There are PLENTY of first-hand stories of sales regarding high dollar exotics selling far below market value because the seller was persuaded into a no-reserve auction.

The E39 M5 is already a collectors item. I would think if the E53 was going to be it would be already, or sometime in the very near future. I hope you're right!

That's what I was figuring the response would be. They're interested in easy to sell vintage (or rare) cars that usually command a premium in the conventional marketplace already. Then when they go through BaT they usually get even more of a premium due to their audience. IE: E30 (especially M3), porsches, 6 speed E61 wagons, etc. E53 is still a "cheap" BMW that has not made enthusiast status yet in their eyes.
