    To me it looks like the dealer is at fault and should honor the sale.

    Mistake or not, you shouldn't have to deal with their bullshit excuse. Contact Paypal and Ebay

    Legally, eBay states they can't force it. But these things always end badly for the dealer. Approach them politely with the links about the GTR, M3, and I think there was also a BRZ or FRS that had a similar situation. The dealers caved in all three due to mounting public pressure.

    legally, they cant enforce it. The $100k price is very unreasonable and a lowball offer. You really expect the dealer to take a $39k loss because of a mistake? It didn't cost you anything to place the bid and you really aren't losing anything except for dreams of getting the car at a lowball price.. Let it go, not worth it

    They're definitely not taking a 39k loss, and if this picks up steam they'll lose more than that anyway from loss of sale and bad press. It would be good business for them to negotiate in good faith and make it right.

    This is good advice maybe the left hand isn't talking to the right in such instances. If I am not mistaken they are under the same umbrella though.

    I've had instances like this (not to that monetary level) and basically nothing occurred of it. With e-mails, images, and so forth to show as evidence.

    Customers are neglected to say the least.

    But it is worth it! They F4cked up not lalasd. He took the time to find such a deal! They should be accountable for their actions, due to negligence on their part. Although, I am sure due to such instances there are policies in place to protect the seller. The seller shouldn't be so careless when it comes to the listing, especially when you are talking about six figures!

    That is how the world works. The very lining of accountability is being absolutely dismissed. If you were driving a car and you accidentally injured someone due to your mistake, you are fully accountable. By allowing this to slide is in essence accepting this as a standard practice of trust and integrity when doing any transaction for that matter. Yes, it did not cost blknblk 39k to make a bid, but that's absolutely irrelevant.

    If you walked to your supermarket, and bought bananas for 5 cents per bundle instead of 3 dollars, and the supermarket demanded that you pay the difference, I would make a grand assumption that you would feel misled. But come on, those are bananas.

    This is a Porsche.
