If you don't like the process, don't buy at an auction. Once again, you have an entire week to vet on BAT, if that's not enough time then you aren't trying hard enough, or don't want it that badly.
A lot of people like to complain about sellers, however buyers can be just as bad. If after sale "PPI"s were the norm at an auction, a good percentage of deals would never go down, and not because there is anything wrong with the car. It would be a super easy "out" for a buyer who perhaps had not told his wife that he was spending the kids education fund or saw what he thought was a better deal on a car the next day. When a car sells at auction and the deal doesn't end up finished, that car is tainted, people wonder what happened, it has a real effect.
Good post.

Moral of the story is that there is both bad sellers and buyers out there. Stay away from auctions if you want a PPI and renegotiate after a sale.
