Does this ebay item look legit? Please vote!

I found a BDR throttle body for an spi on Ebay. The price looks great, but I want to know everyone's opinion on being legit or not. My first concern is that its coming from Germany. Shipping insurance is not offered, and it says no returns or refunds. This is a very hard part to find, but I dont want to get ripped off. What do you guys think? Should I buy it?

it does look legit and good. I don't understand how he has an SVT in Germany unless he imported it though. so tough call maybey he's based outta the states and in the reserves or somethin? I'd ask him about that in a question

The person is in the Army at Wuerzburg. APO/FPO are military addressing standards, standing for Army Post Office / Fleet Post Office.

My guess is he brought his car there when he went on duty, and got a SVT engine from somewhere.

I say its a legit auction. Previous auctions were for turbo parts. However, just be prepared for slow shipping, either on the military's part or him.

I think it is ok. His feedback is lower from not paying, not shipping stuff out.

Well guys, I am the current high bidder, and I think I am going to win. I sure hope so. Its only up to $107.50 right now, so that would be awsome if I got it for that price. Thanks for all your input, and I'll let you all know how it goes. It has less than an hour left. Wish me luck....
