Likely a repo. Used to see these all the time. In Riverside. They used to have a section by “the wall” specifically reserved for the inop tows. They would drag them through on a wrecker so they could attempt to pursue the deficiency.
I’ve leased high-end cars for years. I would absolutely hate myself and be ashamed if I ever returned a car like this. I know you are supposed to “drive them like you stole them”, because what do you care what happens after you turn them in, but this just makes you a giant asshole.
Is this just a parts car? (though not sure what parts I would want from it!)
Because WHO in their right mind would touch this at auction? A 3 year old BMW with several thousand dollars worth of crash repairs that has probably never been serviced in it’s life. I cannot even imagine the financial pain this thing will cause for the rest of it’s life.
Sometimes it’s just better to put a dog out of its misery.
I wonder if this car is totaled. Tons of damage plus no oil change in 26k miles which likely means there are some issues with the engine. I suspect the repair bill might be more than the car is worth, especially if all the repairs end up on the Carfax.
