We reserve the right to end this listing at anytime should the vehicle no longer be available for sale. The following terms of sale apply to all of our listings.
The successful high bidder will submit a $1,000 deposit by credit
card over the phone within 24 hours of the close of the Ebay auction to secure the vehicle. Balance of
funds must be received within 3 days unless other specific arrangements are made.
Acceptable Payment Methods:
- if you will be picking up the vehicle in-person, we accept certified check, previously
arranged financing through one of our lenders or your own lender, or bank wire. If you are
paying with a certified check, it must be verified before we will release the vehicle. Many banks
only verify certified checks during normal business hours, so we will need to make plans
accordingly if you’re using a certified check.
- if the vehicle will be released to anyone other than the buyer (3rd party, transport
company, etc), then the only forms of payment are a bank wire or previously arranged financing
through one of our lenders or your own lender.
Taxes and Fees: All transactions will be assessed a $150 documentation fee, $5
temporary registration plate fee, and Texas inventory tax, which is calculated at 0.2365% of the
sale price, regardless of where the vehicle will be registered – no exceptions. For example, a
vehicle selling for $40,000 would be assessed $94.60 in Texas inventory tax, $5 temporary
plate fee, and a $150 documentation fee for a total of $40,249.60.
If the buyer of a vehicle will be registering the car in Texas, we are obligated by
the State of Texas to collect motor vehicle sales tax at a rate of 6.25% of the sale price in
addition to the aforementioned inventory tax, $5 temporary plate fee, and $150 documentation
If the buyer will be registering the car outside of Texas, we do not collect Texas
state sales tax, and if the buyer pays for the vehicle in-full before vehicle release with no loan or
lien holder, the only fees additional to the sale price that will be assessed are the
aforementioned $150 documentation fee, $5 temporary plate fee, and Texas state inventory tax
(0.2365%). However, if the vehicle is financed we may be obligated by the lender to register the
vehicle at the buyer’s respective location, collect any applicable fees and taxes for the location
of registration, and apply for a lien on behalf of the lender. The only circumstance in which we
will not require the collection of all respective local taxes and registration fees for a vehicle
that’s financed and registered outside of Texas is with an expressed written and authorized
statement from an agent of the lender releasing Autobahn from the obligation to collect taxes,
register the vehicle, and record a lien on the lender’s behalf. All vehicles listed include all factory incentives applied.
