I'm a bit confused about how/why he kept your money, but then again I guess you were able to claim the car?
I would have thought that the seller would return your funds and the vehicle should have been his to claim on his insurance, however perhaps the transaction is considered complete in Australia once the money was transferred? glad you had it insured.

I actually believe I met the E30 M3 owner (and his car ) that you you mentioned at BMW CCA Oktoberfest at Elkhart Lake in 2010.. IIRC he had come there with a group of friends and that had a motor home.

PS. Black is beautiful!
Yeah it was a battle to say the least - I spent a small fortune on lawyers and contract specialists. The car was double insured (by both me and the seller). The seller initially kept my money saying he needed to get legal advice himself. Initially insurance said they weren't going to cover me - for a good while I had no money and no car - was gutting. Then we appealed the decision and they said they would cover me. Took another few months of back and forth and I finally received the payout.

On my E30 mate he does indeed have a tour bus style motor home as well and often goes to meets etc - I'd say that was the guy! Small world hey?
Lol. I think he even had 888 as his favorite number plate. No doubt! Small world.

Funny you should ask - yes indeed. Also, about a week ago I was leaving the neighborhood and saw a beautiful black 1M on the side of the street. Unfortunately mine wasn't so clean, but I had to snap some shots regardless.... Is this one you??? (I've muddled the plates as obviously I've been burned already)....

Yup! Good spot.
