Default EBP 12k mile em1

Last time it was red this one is GOAT EBP. No weird mileage dispute either. How much? 25-30k?

Hopefully a ton. Just means my GSR, which is a better all around car, will keep increasing in value

I probably would have attempted to clean the valvecover or bought a new OEM valvecover for $300 before sale. Probably would have professional pics taken too. Just nitpicking but yes the mileage is wowzah.

literally all the comments are about the damn valve cover

"The lettering looks like someone tried to sandpaper the surface rust off and in the process wiped the dust onto the adjacent surfaces."

aluminum rust is the worst kind of rust

Plot Twist: The current bid is the guy who bought the Milano Red one for $22k. Someone is stockpiling his retirement.

Well the current bid IS the same guy that bought the red one. That's been verified. If he gets the EBP then snags a low mileage Black one.....maaaaannnnnnn #winning

srs tho, how much would insurance give him if it gets stolen. Car thieves should know these like the back of their hand.

Meh. I don't trust any of these crazy low mileage EM1s.

Ask Brice, he has my old cluster showing 8000 miles.

I was there when these came out and it was only meh to the “real racers” /vindiesel

beisdes the pretty color I wasn’t too thrilled

needed a 1.8 liter

i hope I am wrong but investing in these types of cars seems like a horrible idea - market seems too narrow and niche

maybe I am just a hater

There is no "investment" unless you are a flipper and get lucky. Even a car like this, pretty much the actual holy grail, returns nothing after inflation. Reminds me of the brand new Riviera on Mecum that sold for like 10k less than it did brand new. Congrats you bought a car, never drove it, and lost your *** off when overhead is considered?
