The Official... "I bought it on Ebay thread"

Post your pics of parts that actually turned out work for you that you purchased on Ebay! You know.. the parts that actually gave you those hp's.. the body kits that look so nice.. exhausts that actually fit...

Include a lil pic, what you paid, details of the product, any helpful info for your focus buddies that want to buy stuff on ebay! (Names of Ebay stores that are credible would be cool too)

Agreed, good idea! I shop there alot, not just for car stuff...the only thing I have ever bought, after 60-70 transactions, were a pair of 'HID' lookalike bulbs. They looked GREAT at first, and then the left one melted my wiring socket... it was easy to replace, and the guarantee covered the replacement of a new bulb.

All in all, if you know what you are doing, Ebay is a great place!

don't have pics, but i'll go first. maybe aaron will see the thread and show some for you guys.

focus sport header, flex, and stealth exhaust: 490 shipped. yeah. seriously.

Ford Racing UDP: 70 next day aired

Transfer Racing HVAC dials: 40 total (a rip off in my opinion, they should have been 20 shipped)

thats it. but i think ebay's been good to me.....

yeah i just thought it would be a good idea since i'm looking to customize my zts... and i'm a beginner when it comes to foci.. so i thought this would help me find some bargains that weren't going to break down on me in a month...

Neutral, my last one, I almost got ripped, but finally the item arrived.
I'd say, just really check the seller and email him before buying, if he responds and is good, then do it.
So far, I got about 10 items, misc. stuff and of course my doors, thanks to Amanda/Lil PZEV.

OBX 4-2-1 header, OBX ORP and OBX 4-1 header (when I was doing the shorty thing), and almost everything else on my car is name brand stuff from ebay.
