2009 Nissan GT-R: Bidding for Our Car on eBay
November 09, 2009
I've been writing about selling our 2009 Nissan GT-R and predictably getting responses from readers who say they would never touch our car, even with someone else's 10 foot pole. But recently I got this opinion from one of our readers.
MN_Car_Enthus wrote, "Why don't you just put it no-reserve on EBAY and let er rip? Seeing how it would trade in this economy would be the most interesting aspect to this LT test by far. No offense.
"I'm confident you'll do better than $60k. Everyone seems to think that simply because this is an Edmund's LT Test Car it should trade at a discount to a car with comparable mileage. You never took it for a hard track (in fact your tires corded recently from a lack of "spirited" driving ), it has 100% documented history and has been treated well. I don't get it........................?"
Well, it is listed on eBay and bidding has been encouraging.
After only three days on the market, there have been 28 bids, and the top offer is now $47,000. The reserve price has not yet been met but the bidders are getting close. Anyone who has been following the sales process knows what we were offered by Carmax and that will give you a clue as to the reserve price.
Take a look at our eBay auction and as the savvy shoppers often say, "bid with confidence."
