    They might be the nicest XF/XG utes left on earth, but surely they aren't worth anything like that much. The scary thing is that for that to be an auction result, there were at least two bidders who thought those prices were fine.

          Must come with a tray full of door handles (xfs), because the new owner will need them.

                Money laundering at its finest IMO. The same as the 300 grand ooshies.

                  I've never been to Bali, but if it's like driving an XF ute I don't understand why anyone goes?
                  Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                      Just looking at other results from the same auction:

                      Toolex 12t pipe bender went for $340 + buyers premium, they're $209 new in the shop.
                      Ozito 900w hammer drill $325 + buyers premium, $99 at Bunnings.

                        I should have put the clubbie in that auction.

                          I've always wondered why or how people end up spending overs on cars at auction. It makes no sense to me. That stuff is even worse... has to be something else going on.

                          Is there something around the payment method at auction? e.g. do they take cash without the identify of the buyer being verified?

                              Total lack of research. They "know" it's always cheaper to buy a car at auction, and don't look into what they could get it for elsewhere. It's an even sillier mistake in these days of being able to look up CarSales on your 'phone while attending the auction ...
