What users at autoastat.com have been searching for over the past week is the AutoAstat Popularity Rating (AAPR).
According to the AAPR, the Audi Q5 has been researched 359 times this week, followed by the BMW 3-series (347 searches) and BMW X5 (341). This suggests that our users are interested in these makes and models and are looking to buy them at auctions. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a newcomer on this list this week.
If you have a PRO account with us, you can filter for the buyer's country and see which cars were sold to that specific country. This is very helpful in understanding trends and the market.
My personal pick of the week!
The Acura NSX is probably one of the greatest JDM cars ever built. Driving the original Acura NSX ruins every new car. New supercars are better than this in a million ways, none of which are worth a damn.
The reason why is obvious. The NSX is supercar simplicity incarnate. That V-6 makes “only” 270 hp and a muscling bellow that doesn’t stop until the 8000 rpm redline. This is a car that’s meant to be driven.You can drive a car balanced on the edge of the world, its fate determined by your confidence and competence, and I promise you won’t care. You’ll just want more of those moments.
I've found cars from dealers that had the most auctions or did impressive repairs. Remember to check every vehicle of your interest at Copart and IAAI on autoAstat.
Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase. It's important to note that just because a car has many bids, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the best deal or in the best condition. It's always important to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and do research on its history before making a bid.
Salvage Auto Auctions are the place to find amazing deals!My favorite category is...Let's see what $25 can get you at auctions these days... :)
This week, I am taking a look at one of the most popular SUVs: the 2019-22 BMW X5 (G05)
You can see that the average price for the car was the cheapest in March 2022. So now is still the best time to buy a BMW X5

That's all for now.
