This M Coupe (VIN: WBSCM9344YLC62226) is listed for sale on outbackautosalesinc.com of Chicago, IL with 71k miles for $14,500. This Coupe was in a front end collision in March of this year that caused the insurance company to total it (photos of the damage at the bottom of this post). It was sold at auction in Jackson, MS with an opening bid of $5,300. The damage from the accident wasn’t all that extensive, which given the fairly low mileage, it seems odd that it was totaled. Just the same, now that it has a salvage title, the price does seem a bit high. I’m pretty curious what it sold for at auction. If anybody has a way to check, please post in the comments or email me. I assume the dealer purchased it themselves at auction and had the hood repaired, a new bumper,Â along with new headlights, and they purchased the ugly eBay kidney grilles. They should have ponied up the few bucks and purchased the OEM parts, along with new M badges all around, and refinish the wheels. The hood still looks a bit tweaked with the drivers side touching the headlight, while the passengers side has too wide of a gap, yet the gap to the quarter panels looks correct. I think for $12-$13k somebody could buy this, finish the repairs and have a nice looking Coupe.
