Selling a car on Bring-a-Trailer, part 1 – The Detail

I have decided to sell my beloved 1995 Acura Integra GS-R. The reasons are plenty, but mostly because I don’t drive it much. Since I’m of the opinion that there is no point in owning something that I have no use for, I have decided to sell it. And it only took me six years to make that decision. In this series of articles, I will describe my selling process.

Since this is a well-sorted, updated, and upgraded modern RAD classic, I have decided that I will be selling it on Bring-a-trailer dot com. The website seems to be the best option for selling such a vehicle. But before I even contact BaT, or do anything else regarding the sale, the first step was to get the Integra to look good. Nothing else really needs to be done as it is mechanically sound. Well, it does need something, but more on that later.

My friends at Ace Performance hired a local detailer to bring to some shine to this dusty Teg. The process removed three years of garage dust from the car and cleaned the interior for the first time in five years. He made the wheels look better than they have since new, too. I think the whole detailing came out pretty good.

In part 2 we will discuss pictures. The more pictures, the better. And a video, too.

    Do you even know if they’ll accept it? They seem fickle at times. Maybe your star power will get you in the door 😊

      Put a Porsche leaflet in the backseat. That’ll do.

      If they don’t, I’ll have to go with Plan B.

      I don’t have a Plan B.

    I’ve been thinking about taking this route with the T/A eventually. Will be watching with interest.
