why are people paying MORE in the AH vs just buying it from the dealer?

I have no clue :ROFLMAO: but they do. like back when I could buy 488 Pista's for 320k, and sell them in AH for like 500k.

Since this weeks challenge involves the Lexus LFA, which is 500k in the auto show, I took a peek at the AH to see what the going rate was there, and people were bidding bone stock cars out past 500k, and most were just being bought outright for the 800k buyout before the auction even ended. Its like WTF is wrong w/ these people?

The AH is great. I needed a GT car for a series and bought an M6 for $25k (I think) when most were going for $75-100k, dumped a little money in it and then listed the “buy now” for below retail price after the series, like $100k, and someone scooped it up immediately. That, plus the winnings, and I was in good shape.

Instead of going after the cash cows I thought I'd see what kinda low hanging fruit I could scoop up. Think I did pretty decent.

I have been so close to winning an LFA for like 2-300k, and then RIGHT at the last second some dipshit will swing in w/ the buy it now price of $860k...........WHY :ROFLMAO:

Fuck it. Just gonna pick it up from the auto show. Not like I cant fuckin afford it. Was just trying to see if I could save a few bucks, but apparently not when the AH is populated w/ morons.

Hm. The 575's are not doing as well as I'd hoped. They never really went past 4 mil, and the market is flooded with them right now, which is not good, and I tried putting a couple up earlier, and they did not sell, and now they're down to like 3.2. I may have made a poor investment choice. Suppose I'll just hang on to them for now. They could rebound, in a week, or a month.............

I thought, what better way to put 20 miles on my LFA to complete the weekly challenge for this car than to run Bru Bru 's tour again :ROFLMAO:







Did about 23 seconds better than my viper on this run

And as a bonus, this thing does sound absolutely glorious screaming thru tunnels

Trying to flip LFAs in the AH right now.

Already finished this seasons challenges and have the Celica. Have been refreshing the AH to see if anyone post one for me to snag.

I need to start working the AH to make millions so I can buy the $5M house and a ton of cars I don’t already have.

I forgot about the maximum amount of auctions per day. I listed a ton of duplicate cars before trying to list 3 LFAs and now I can’t list the last one lol

I've already been spamming the auction house looking for celicas even tho I havent completed the seasonal challenge and obtained one for myself yet. did manage to to luck upon a run of them going for like 158k, but I could not get a single one. And they were all put up by the same dude. Like, that has to be cheating. I dont know how, but theres just no way 1 dude could have so many this early. Either way, I've had no luck so far.

Still trying to get the peel trident also. But those are up to like 5 mil now. IF you can find one. Not paying that much. So annoying.

I’m going in on a ton of #25 Broncos. Most are selling for full $440k. Snagging some for $100-160k.

Holy crap!

Took me 22:08 to complete it. Pretty sure the hula-dancer stuck to my dash pissed my pants for me.

Have 10 #25 RTR Broncos, 3 RX-7 Spirt Rs, and 2 LFAs to auction off tomorrow.

The Bronco and LFAs are good ones if you can snipe them for $150-300k for the Bronco and $300-500k for the LFA.
