Mark,
I'm not sure if you are serious or not. In case you are:
Bidding below the reserve price makes you a "bidder" then you can get an email notification when someone outbids you and you instantly know the next bid because they have just outbid you.
If you bid below the reserve and the reserve is not met, you get notified if the car is relisted. Plus the buyer may contact you and offer to sell at your last bid. I have been successful doing this and the 965 I am driving now was a "Reserve not met" auction.
Giving up the reserve also keeps away the sharks that just bid up to the hidden reserve then pull out, just so they can find out what the reserve is.

Ebay is a bit science and a bit art. Also, they are making so much bloody money they don't care about one auction's percentage...

Thanks,
Mark
