BaT Auction: 2001 BMW Z3 Coupe 5-Speed at No Reserve
This 2001 BMW Z3 Coupe is an unmodified driver with 102k miles and a clean Carfax report. The seller is the fourth owner who's had car for four years and driven it around 6000 miles. Overall condition is very good and the car retains all VIN matching panels and does not appear to have any accident repair. It has been regularly serviced by a foreign car specialist as well as by Vermont’s only BMW dealer, Automaster in Shelburne, VT, with the most recent service last month in preparation for sale. Jet Black over Walnut leather interior is a unique combo and this looks like a nice example with some of the M Coupe look in a more understated package.

Microsoft's taking HoloLens on tour to woo developers

Microsoft has already said its mixed reality headset, HoloLens, will be reaching developers early next year. But while we wait for that to happen, the company plans to take it on tour across the US and Canada, in an event that's going to give developers the chance to try the device firsthand. They'll also be able to meet members of the HoloLens team and learn how to create holographic experiences, which is a smart way to lure in any dev who's thinking about paying the $3,000 for a test unit. The live demo trip begins October 13th in Seattle, followed by Toronto, Salt Lake City, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Atlanta and, lastly, Austin. To register, as well as find out the exact dates for each city, check out the event's dedicated site.

BaT Auction: 1962 MG Midget at No Reserve
This 1962 MG Midget was purchased new in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and raced locally in club events before being put away by the original owner in 1976 with 55k miles. It remained there until purchased by the second owner last year who immediately set about putting it back on the road. Work included new brakes, brake lines, steam cleaned and resealed fuel tank, general tuning and fitment of a new windshield and battery--receipts are included. The car is now said to run well and start easily on the choke with no smoke according to the seller. There is some rust in the rockers and the car should be gone through before any long-distance trips, but overall this appears to be an honest early Midget.
