My suggestion to the buyer.

1. always have the driver stand near the car wher ever you go.
2. remove the bonnet, frame it and put it in your living room.
3. do not take your car out at all and have it parked only in your enterance.
4. get the bonnet alone insured for a higher price (including paint).

It should definitely be more than the On Road Price, because it has the signatures of the cricketers WOW. And it would definite look ugly with all those in the bonnet. And if parked on the road, pranksters would not mind affixing their signs on them. LOL

Edit: The above ebay link says,

Test Listing..Do not buy

Whats with the IPL fetish that VW has developed of late? First the IPL edition Vento and now this. I wouldnt be surprised if VW end up buying a team for the next season IPL .

No seriously, why would one buy a car with some signatures on it for probably double the price? IMO it would look downright ugly. To all those who bid, please think logically.

True. But we would be surprised at the quotes once the actual bid take place.

Cheers!

VW is going full course on the IPL good to see a car company making use of this sports event.

1, they launched the Passat during the season for IPL
2. They are repeatedly putting the Passat ad during the IPL matches.
3. Vento IPL Edition
4. Display Passat in all the matches on the ground.

Personally I would not buy the captain signed car even if they give it as no additional cost. As it would be a useless thing imagine you will not be able to carry the car when it rains.
You can use an special waxing to the car, cos you dont know how it will react.
Lastly, I just feel the car looks dirty with the sign on them.

Its just meant for those with lots of money and want a memorablia..

OT: I feel this thread should be part of Shifting Gears. Not Indian Car Scene..
Mods please help.

I have a feeling that it will be all the team owners who will be out bidding each other to buy the car and show how much charity work these guys can do. And I wont be surprised if someone picks it up for a crore+.
A little OT:
The seller who has listed this item has already sold a couple of products. And has 4 reviews. So I doubt the authenticity of this Ad if its VW that is auctioning the car..
I have not used ebay ever so maybe I am missing something.

The listing is just an access fee for the actual bidding process. Basically, once the fee is paid the person is eligible to bid for the auction - so entry fee for the bidding process.

Also, it mentions that if person is outbid then 20,000 will be refunded.

Is the site showing some error or the last bid is really Rs. 600,047,300.00?

Looks like some people are bidding just for the heck of it. 60 crores

UPDATE:

Current Price: After the spammers have been filtered out stands at Rs. 65,57,555.00/- (66L approx)

Time Left to bid: 11 hours to go!

And for those who had the query about the spare bonnet here is an actual update:

"The signatures on the Passat are actual signatures converted into a decal and stuck on the car for longer life."
