I am trying to get the AttributeSetID for the eBay Motors Category 6500 with the following call to site 100:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<GetCategory2CSRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
   
<DetailLevel>ReturnAll</DetailLevel>
   
<RequesterCredentials>
       
<eBayAuthToken>*****</eBayAuthToken>
   
</RequesterCredentials>
   
<CategoryID>6500</CategoryID>
</GetCategory2CSRequest>

However, it does not return the MappedCategoryArray containing the AttributeSetID.  Why is this happening?

Summary

Category 6500 is a virtual category.  eBay Motors has some virtual categories which are meant for eBay's internal use and should not be used in the API calls.  Therefore, in our example of BMW 3-series,  instead of using the virtual category we should use the CategoryID 6007 to get the correct AttributeSetID for the category.
