I <3 Ebay

I know some of you will "lolz omg egay" it up, but scoring a BNIB SCT X3 for 215 shipped is a win in my book. Not to mention since buying an early 90s truck, all the good finds on ebay w/o some of the headache of craigslist/junkyard.



Anyways... just felt like saying stuff.

Every once in a while you can find some real gems on eBay.

320 buys on ebay lol I save while people spend so much more for the same stuff... ebay rocks..

Peoples ignorance causes them to lose money why buy retail when its on a website for well under retail this goes for everything, and if ebay was so bad companies like Massive and CFM wouldnt use them to sell their items.... and i can name a hundred more companies that use ebay. Its just like using BST here you wait for something good to come up and when you find it you go for it. Same thing on ebay. sometimes you get lucky.

Nice Buy BTW I picked up a Livewire for my dad for 330 which was a steal and 215 for xcal 3 thats great!

Ebay is not all bad, just mostly. You really have to sift through the Chinese crap to get to the good stuff.

On Ebay I got a vent kit that included the 2 front center vents in black plastic, tubes and shutters with blue LED lights that go to the radio harness for $40 shipped! At my local pick-a-part the dirty stock vents were $70 for the pair.

I've sold over a thousand things on ebay and always give my buyers 7 days to return the item, but some sellers are unscrupulous, and sell absolute trash, so Caveat Emptor, Buyer Beware! Research what you are buying and look at the terms of the sale B4 you "Buy it Now"...or feel like later.

Ebay is like an international bazaar or flea market, except the sellers' reputation is posted outside His/Her tent.
