Again thanks to those who provided feedback about looking for a 95 GS with low miles.

Since then, I came across an broker in Anahiem CA (Aaero Sweet) though SweetDeals.com. We exchanged emails and spoke on the phone about what I am looking for.

Anyone ever dealt with this company or brokers that get cars from auctions?
Any advice?
How would I determine my highest bid for a car to my liking since it is an auction? I don't want to overbid or underbid.

Thanks in advance.

Suggest you do your own seeking. With the internet, locating a vehicle is easier, but will still require a bit of traveling in order to locate the "perfect" vehicle. If the only difference between your own seeking and that of a broker is that the broker can access auction cars, then you should find your own. At the auction, the broker can only minimally inspect (start, visual inspection). His main function will be to present your bid and earn his fee. Being an auction (and since the vehicle is past warranty) it will be "as-is". YOU need to inspect the vehicle, relying on the subjective judgement of another party is asking for trouble.

Remember, a vehicle at auction is only there because it has been extremely difficult to move. The auction is the method of last resort. The bulk of auction vehicles have something (condition, mileage) which has inhibited the dealer from selling the unit.

Making a bid is like any other auction...you need to know the market. A rough rule of thumb would be wholesale price. I have seen many, many times vehicles being over bidded at whole car auctions.
