All advanced filter options are pulled in via an API from the Japanese auction data centres based on the manufacturer and model selected.
Mileage is shown in KM and the options range from 10,000km to 150,000km for minimum mileage and 10,000km to 300,000km for maximum mileage. Odometer reading in miles is calculated and rounded up to the nearest 1000 on the auction listings.
Year of manufacturer options are selectable so you can choose min year to max year. So for a DC5 prefacelift you'd set the maximum year to 2003 for example.
Chassis IDs are the codes designated to a particular model. You can choose as many of these chassis IDs as you like to narrow down your search.

A list of colour options for lots that match the manufacturer and model you have chosen are displayed. You can choose multiple options.
Each time an option is chosen a search is performed to count the number of results available. If there are no results the button will change to red notifying you of no results. Try resetting the search parameters and filtering again.
The results data will then be down in a sortable table format. You can further pin point a result using the " Filter by Keyword" function.
This is useful for models such as the RX-7 where you are only looking for data on a Bathurst or Spirit R model. By typing "Bathurst" in the "Filter by Keyword" box it will filter out the models you aren't interested in.
There are a number of outcomes of an auction. These are detailed below.
This vehicle was removed from auction.Often vehicles are listed with a fixed price up to 24 hours before they go to auction. If the vehicle sells this way then the lot is cancelled at the auction house. We often secure vehicles this way if the price advertised is less than the maximum calculated bid.
This vehicle reached reserve and sold via auction.The reserve set by the seller was reached and the vehicle sold to the highest bidder.
This vehicle did not reach reserve and did not sell via negotiation.Despite the seller being open to negotiation the price they would accept was too high for the bidders on the day.
This vehicle did not reach reserve but then sold via negotiation.If the auction doesn't hit reserve then the car may go into "Negotiation" or "Nego". The highest bidder gets first refusal and the start price for Nego is determined by the seller. Cars often sell through Nego, and this can be a sound way to secure a car away from other bidders bidding the price up.
This auction lot was cancelled.Often due to a drastic re-grading as new evidence of odometer issues or repair history.
This result of this auction is unknown.This is usually displayed on listings from USS, HAA or JAA. These houses do not want sold prices appearing in the public domain. However, BHP track the sold status of 75 of the most common chassis codes to give our members the most complete data set in the industry.
