I have said it before, and I will say it again...

I MUST HAVE THOSE HIDs!

JM.. just want to announce I have no sports affiliation whatsoever... Personally, I think with the yellow and black car and purple lights on the interior and exterior.....

... that it will look like Batman fightin' the Joker. haha

I bought a Focus Central Short Shifter for $30 on Ebay it works great I also got some small parts like center caps that my car was mising that woorked out fine as well. My OBX header is from Ebay and I love it I think Ebay is a great buying tool. If you sort through the usual junk you can find what your looking for no problem usually there is a few good items a week on currently I'm waiting for someone to sell there FC tb on ebay as my next mod.

I basically built my car from ebay. when i bought it had a cassette player, 14in hubcaps, no spoiler, and all the other basic crap. from ebay i have bought stock cd player $115, painted stock spoiler $100, Stock 16in rims with tires $275, two center caps for those rims $20, black SVT headlights $120, and a MAC short ram intake $65. the only problem i have ever had was when i bought some halo headlights and they sent me the wrong ones and when i shipped them back i never heard from the guy again, i filed a fraud claim and got all but like $50 back from it. ebay is great IMO.

After reading everyones testamonials, it seems Ebay really IS the way to go.

The key thing I always do is ask questions if you are not sure about something like shipping charges, condition of the item, payment types accepted. Sometimes the descreption isn't clear and leaves room for ASSUMPTIONS.

It's also good to review the Seller feedback too and if they've sold the same item before and someone has left feedback, I send them an email/question through ebay and ask how they liked the item.
