Find damaged BMW vehicles for sale by searching for salvaged vehicles on sites such as eRepairables.com, AutoBidMaster.com, SalvageBid.com and eBay.com, as of 2015.

Full Answer

The site eRepairables.com focuses exclusively on salvage vehicles, offering tools to narrow its inventory to only BMW cars as well as to specific models and seller locations. It functions on an auction system, though it is possible to purchase some cars directly. Some listings also appear on the site before the sale officially begins.

AutoBidMaster.com offers pictures and descriptions for each vehicle on the site and also provides tools to filter listings to only BMW vehicles. Listings include the current minimum bid, the cost for shipping the vehicle, and the ability to buy select vehicles for a flat price before an auction begins.

SalvageBid.com allows users to choose any type of BMW vehicle in its search tool, although the site does not always carry vehicles other than cars. The site allows users to build a watch list of current auctions, which sends updates about changes in prices or new bids.

The auction site eBay.com contains a section for salvage auto sales, which includes tools to limit listings to BMW models. However, this section often incorrectly lists vehicles with little or no damage in addition to actual salvage title cars.
