    O9 ACR on E-bay BIN for $59,500
    Dealer Says,
    "Rt Front damage"
    "no frame damage"
    "airbags intack" 09ACR.jpg

    Always Google the Vin# Before you buy ANY Vehicle! This is FREE information. Then you can decide what "airbags intack" means.:nono:
    Salvage auction says "secondary rear end damage" also.

    I dunno...I see the airbags. They look pretty "intack" to me. As a buyer, I'd be comforted knowing they were there. I can't verify that my '08 even has airbags, because I've never seen them.

    How would it be possible for the driver air bag still be "intack"? Were the air bags disabled prior to the collision?

    That thing has been on ebay for ever, it think he started at 70k? then 65, now 60. Its also missing the $4000+ front splitter.
    I remember when it was sold a while back wrecked, I think someone paid over 40 for it.

    He is just trying to lure a fool. Thinking there is an ass for every seat. However, fortunately this is such a niche market that the only people who might consider buying this wreck are the people who drive them and know enough about them. Dishonesty does not pay.

    Not the cars that give bad name but rather the person or people behind it, or companies trying a half fast crap.

    That's not the one X2 builders is selling is it? I think there was a green 08 that they have been posting the heck out of on ebay.

    He had sent me pictures prior to fixing. The one posted by the OP was not included.
    The pics he sent me did not reveal as bad of damage ??

    4955 miles when wrecked, 4959 on the auction site. So after that wreck/repair they put a whole 4 miles on the car. I am sure its straightened out...

    Googling the VIN 1B3JZ69Z69V500518

    I have repaired them in worse shape but you need to spend money on them to do it right. You can see where the innerfender was repaired and it is missing the splitter. When you see these couple things then are not told the whole truth you loose big money because no one will trust you. Never cut corners on a repair. But still someone will buy it and find out later.

    Vin shows it is an 09 , as no 08s were built in 08 ,though there is one individual in Arizona who seems to have one and in SSG and it appears legit.

    It's clean I'll give him that, also has the splitter, surprised he has a reserve on it when the bid is already at 46k. That seems like a fair price IMO.
