You could create a tmp table with the max bids and then join on
that. Something like:
CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE max_bids
SELECT auto_id, MAX(bid_amount) AS max_bid_amount
GROUP BY auto_id;
SELECT dealer_id, b1.auto_id, bid_amount FROM bids b1, max_bids b2
WHERE b1.auto_id = b2.auto_id
AND auto_dealer_id = '3' AND Bid_Status = '1';
