jawquin, welcome to the site. What was the buying experience with ebay and getting a car?

Seems risky no?

Thanks everyone. Glad to see all the wealth of info and pictures on the site. I have driven a few Bonnevilles. My dad has had several over the yrs and has an 05 SE that just clicked 20k on the odometer. The 04 SLE my 19 yr old is driving just clicked 100k. An awesome car that one is.

The buying experience on ebay can be quite interesting and nerve wracking. This is the 4th car I have bought without seeing but the 1st one I paid in full without seeing or picking up in person. This one is a thousand miles away and having it shipped was the best alternative. (I hope) The car was listed as inspected on ebay and it is on a dealer lot. It'* getting a new windshield due to a small crack and will be covered by the dealer. Great people to work with. I set up the shipping with DAS shippers. Cost to ship from Houston to Indianapolis is 534 dollars.

I also recommend running a carfax. This gives some records of the vehicles history. This one came back good.

I paid 5991 for it and 50 some dollar fees the dealer charges and they waived one. There is paperwork involved faxing and emailing. ALWAYS ask if you are uncertain.

I don't have the car yet and will not be comfortable until it is in the driveway and appears as it did and I was told in the ad and by the dealer.

Ask away and let me know what you think. Heres more pictures and the ebay number if you would like to look at it. 270269759253

Just me or is that a great deal? I would be jealous if it was not white.

Welcome to the Club and I hope it runs as good as it looks. Watch yourself when you get it. People dont seem to see white Bonnevilles. They get hit alot. Some call it the "white curse".......

Thanks, Good news is it is moving. That is a plus. It is just outside of Dallas in Mesquite now. Due date is on the 16th here in Indiana. We'll see how it plays out. If it'* a decent car I will keep it and mod a little from reading the posts.

Here is an update to the ebay SSEi. I could not be happier. The car cleaned up nice from the long haul. It had to have been on the top of the hauler backwords cause it was covered with splattered bugs on the rear and mirrors. The car is better than I expected. I get a grin on my face every time I drive it. I clicked 80k yesterday.
