  1. Dude, the $250k M3 was money laundering. Any crazy auction whether it's a car, collectible card or a video game that sells for a crazy amount is using the new way to launder money.

  2. I bought a 2001 Audi A4 Avant Quattro at a police auction about 4 years ago for $350. Put a battery on it and took the rear brakes apart to free them and clean them up. All i've had to since is regular maintenance. It's been a great work car and for the price, I think after 30k miles added on, I think I got my moneys worth. It's not much to look at, but gets from a to b reliably.
