I'm surprised BaT cared so much to ban you from the site. I have friends who have purchased cars on there and found that the car's condition was misrepresented.. BaT didn't seem to care at all.
Exactly.. An acquaintance of mine recently got royally screwed over on a horrendously misrepresented E39 540i Touring. It was a nightmare situation; seller/dealer was a worthless scumbag in every sense and BaT did essentially nothing. Being on the periphery of that experience really soured my opinion of BaT --- seems eBay has more robust buyer protection..
