    Apparently he contacted eBay, and they said that the entire Husker group might lose their dealer status with the site :bowrofl:

    "All vehicles at The Husker Auto Group are for sale locally. We reserve the right to end the auction early due to a local sale."

    They should have ended the auction early then at the last few minutes. :dunno:

    I meant "dealer sales account", apparently, and I guess it is, seeing as how it would probably prevent them from listing their cars on the site, or something along those lines. The group has something like 7 different dealerships, I think...

    read through page 5...hopefully some local bmw owner who is an attorney will help him out...he was already getting advice from other attorneys on the site.

    He is going to get one hell of a deal...one way or another

    Absolutely nothing will come out of this.

    The buyer will piss and moan on the internet for a week or two, then he'll find some other deal on the car he wants or get bored with it entirely, and it will be forgotten.
