It appears AutoNation Direct is selling 29 new 2012 cars in 9 days at 50% off the MSRP, you have to pay cash for it, no financing, its first come first serve once the ad goes live! Only thing that scares me is the line

"Buyer must agree to sign a talent release to be used for public relations purposes." - Not sure what that means..

Been refreshing this thread almost as much as eBay, but it's my first post. Thank you everyone so much for the discussions!

After 40 hours without sleep, I finally got the PayPal payment submitted first. I started believing it was impossible for a desktop user to pick one of these up, but decided I just wouldn't give up. Turns out it is possible despite the horrible disadvantage.

I'm going to go back over the thread now to see everyone else's ideas on transportation companies. Wondering if there were any other winners within a few states of Michigan that could share how they went. It would be awesome if someone also needed a car shipped to around the same area to get a discount, even if it wasn't related to this auction, but I know that's a long shot.
wow! congrats!!!

Where in michigan? I am also looking at Dealers Choice like others have mentioned. It is a little more expensive then going to a broker (Transport Connection was mentioned also) but you have so little time to get the vehicle picked up from the dealer that you really do need to talk directly to a transport company to get it picked up at a guaranteed time.

What Dealer choice company are you talking about from FL? Because if that's the case they're a broker also.

Thanks. Smilie I had pretty much given up hope, and was being stubborn!

I'm between Detroit & Ann Arbor. Are you in the area? If you're close enough that we could arrange some type of discount, I'd love to talk to you about it. Feel free to PM contact info.

I am also going with Dealer's Choice.

Won the auction on Sunday.
Contacted on Monday - Secured loan on and sent AutoNation a digital check - Paperwork sent to me
Received paperwork on Tues., returned paperwork
Received the all clear yesterday
Car getting picked up today
Car will be delivered to TX on Sunday.

...I will be keeping my car!
What is a "digital check"? I've seen multiple people use that phrase in this thread.

First, you ridicule everybody saying there are scripts for this, and say that's false. Then, you talk about how they actually exist! And btw, from what the guy says, he got pretty close with the 11 second listing with his script
I still and will always believe that a script cannot beat a human.

I think there were some others earlier in the promotion when competition isn't what it is now.

Sorry that you're going to have you're whole day wasted, you need an iPhone or iPad with the eBay app to even stand a CHANCE because you get connected directly to the server.
Hey,
Need your help, how do I stay logged in Paypal in the iPad app. Last night I got into the 'Buy it Now' section and prompted with pay with Paypal and by that time someone actually completed the transaction.

Do I need to stay logged in the Paypal app or the paypal website in the safari browser ? Please do let me know.

I financed mine through a bank and supplied them with a digital check which basically is loan confirmation. The dealer provided their routing number and account number to my bank via the "digital check" document.

So I just got off the phone with them again, they figured out whats going on with my paperwork.

Apparently the dealer is doing something a little different with me (great...) and they are sending my paperwork directly to a notary that will be able to discuss all the documents with me, just as if I was at the dealership. And most importantly, they will be footing the bill.

However, this means that I will not be able to sign the paperwork until monday or tuesday... and wont be able to pickup the vehicle until wednesday probably.

I am using Bill from Transport connection to ship it to San Jose CA.
He is awesome I am paying him a commission of $225 and COD $800 = $1025 Total.

Car will be picked up on April 06. I spoke to Bob Jones from Maroone Nissan, apparently he has no problem in picking the car after 5 days. Paperwork itself took more than 3 days.
