Buy it now for $12,950? M5? 2700 miles?

A friend emailed the seller. He says shipment would be from the Netherlands.

Is this suspect?

Its been taken out, but I did see it earlier today. Might just be a typo, the seller had a high ebay rating with alot of sales.

Don't think it was a typo. My friend emailed the address and got a response from the seller (Liam Wong) saying that it was the correct price and that the buyer would have to pay for shipping and insurance from the Netherlands.

He responded that he wanted to stop by and see the car in person, because he'd be in the Netherlands on travel. He hasn't heard back from him. Doubtful that he will now that the auction is down.

It does sound like a hijacked account, since he had a high rating.
