"That's $30,000 per vehicle! For dodgy second-hand parts sold under the counter?"

Yup. The secondhard parts value of most cars is higher than the intact sale price.

For high end models the darknet secondhand price is frequently higher than the NEW price of a vehicle and there's somewhat of a market for factory runouts to go straight to breakers for various models.
