I often browse the car auctions or yahoo japan for used parts, and there's often things that are pretty nifty that I came across. I thought others might do the same thing, and it would be neat if you came across something special (that you aren't going to get) to share it with us. Here's a couple I came across:



1993 BMW 850i (E50)



1992 BMW Alpina B11



1996 BMW M3



1998 Rover Mini (1,000 km!!!)



1996 Rover MIni (12,000km!!!)

        Comon - an old school mini with only 1000k?

        Yeah it's not the cream of the crop - there's few selections right now on the auctions. Like 10's of cars when there should be 100's.

                    Those threads are just cool things you can see.

                    My intent was that these are cool things you can buy. Car auctions, hard to find or interesting parts, etc.

                              A little off on a tangent but is the Yahoo Japan for used parts an Auction site? or can you "buy now" similar to ebay?

                                Same as eBay, some items are auction only, others have a buy it now option.

                                When using Google translate, I believe their buy it now translates to "prompt decision price".
                                I consider every deleted post a small victory.

                                  LHD in Japan, balla status!

                                  What's the link for the Yahoo Japan auctions?  Had it once before, but it seems to have disappeared :unamused:

                                      I thought all german cars in japan were LHD?

                                      Most, but not all.  Really weird that they wouldn't all be RHD, as they were all available that way for the UK, etc.

                                                I provide the links to the auction too... so if you click it, then you will have an option for 'statistics' and by year you can see how much they've sold for. So my guess is that it would go for about $90k
