$500 is the buyer fee, but manheim add all sorts of BS fee's to jack the price, such as administration, $77 title checks, etc.

Yeap, stamp duty will be a killer, but hey, its a M.

Warranty is 100% valid, just because it goes through an auction does not cancel it. I've bought from there before and had warranty claims through Brisbane BMW without any issues.
