you're betting against the odds because water phucks up everything. if you're not prepared to replace all electronics, engine, transmission, fluid systems, basically everything, locks, windows, etc. take a pass. don't forget the car wasn't flooded with deionized filtered water, it took a bath in mud and sh1t, all that dirt and particulate matter gets into moving parts and you're looking at a lifetime of failed components that will need replacing. you can't even count on the body being problem free as rust will eventually show up.

Default Flooded car

Ok so lets say it was Larry Holmes Lexus GX570, he lives close enough to the water damaged stuff

i hear all you guys and trust me i'm definitely weighing the risks. The day i go to the auction will decide if i purchase one.. and I'm a frugal dude with my money so I won't be stupid to just buy without thinking it through first. I know i most likely won't buy, but I'll go to the auction for the experience at least
