Best Marketplace for M6?

Post by cobbs » Thu Mar 15, 2018 9:28 pm

What is the consensus on the best place to find buyers for low mileage/collector quality M6 / M635? I have placed ads on here but have never gotten much of a response. Autotrader / Hemmings seems to never draw real buyers and Ebay is too short of a listing.

Ideas /success stories much appreciated!

Hey cobbs, board moderator here :roll:

I don't have any advice for you, but I do think you will get a lot more chatter and responses if I move this thread to the Saloon section [-o<

But not to worry, I'll leave a shadow for you as well =D>

If your car is that good, surely the only way to go is the collectors cars auction route?

You can go the US Auction route...

Autotrader / Hemmings are for muscle cars for the most.

Online seems to bring a little less on M635s...

Check out the BAT Graph on e24s...

Sell it in Europe....

They seem to sell for $10k or more over there than what you get in the US.

Yes, it's that nice. What auctions exactly? BAT is one, what's another good one? Thanks!

Thanks for the info. Have never used BAT. Yes, this car will be worth about $65K in Europe. I have a contact in Germany who said for sure he could get $65K US for this car no problem. Euro Spec are worth $10K more than that.

cobbs, The Saloon is just a forum for more general discussions, even non 6er related \:D/
Talk women (or men), politics, gripe about your 6er (or other ride), and speak your mind.
That's what the heading states :wink:

I saw your ad (nice example :shock: ) but thought it would be better to discuss selling options here in the saloon :-k

Hadn't thought about using BaT, but as long as you can set a reserve, you've got nothing to lose =D>

Well, what is it, $99 #-o

GLWS :lol:

Sorry old chap, I’m from the other side of the pond - so I cannot advise where😕.

However, having watched some of the US reality shows such as “Chasing Classic Cars”, I’m sure that there are plenty of quality auction houses around?

The reserve on BAT is always negotiable. I sold my late father's '71 MB 280se 3.5 Coupe on BAT and they suggested a pretty low reserve. I had done my homework and knew the market a bit better and countered with something $15k higher and showed them my research. They agreed. It didn't matter as in the final day of the auction we blew by the reserve and it sold for $20k more than I thought it would.

Mind you, far too many M6 cars have failed to meet reserve on BAT this year, so I think the reserves have been higher than the market clearly wants. From my observation a good M6 with no stories sells for an average of $30-35k on BAT if under 100k miles. If under 60k miles it will fetch between $45-55k. If over 100k miles, they top out around $30k, but usually RNM around $25k.

"The reserve on BAT is always negotiable."

That statement is incorrect! It's Bu-- sh--
I wanted a higher reserve, they said no way, take it or leave it!
