    So I posted some Torsion bar keys for s10's & blazers on ebay... Bought them used about a year ago from a guy on another forum for $45 shipped. I put them on ebay with a $40 starting bid, and $10 shipping.

    16 hours left in the auction... Its at $102.50!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now what makes it even more awesome... You can buy these brand new for $79.95 shipped. :ph34r:

    Common Sense > Most ebayer's... :)

    Word, I used to buy in bulk D series intake manifolds for 30-60 shipped and ebay them at over 100 ea.--apparently, there is some stupid law or something about running a business from your garage without a permit. :p

    Thats what I was afraid of... But both bidders have 50+ positive feedbacks, members for at least a year, and both have 98% or higher ratings.. With stars next to their names... 8)

    yea no shit, people that do that are stupid. i was looking to buy a moroso catch can on ebay the other day. it was used and at 20 bucks, i threw in my bid, max bid at 35. someone got me up to 32ish, so i upped my max to 40, any more was just a waste. some loser sniped the shit out of it for 41 bucks. i should have made my max more, just so that dude would have to pay more, lol.

    I think some people get into the mode of ONLY shopping at Ebay and it kills em when they try to get a legit deal.

    So it sold for $112.50 w/ shipping... Not bad for something I paid $45 shipped for!!

    And now my other auction for a CPI (Injector) unit... I paid $25 shipped for a COMPLETE INTAKE MANIFOLD, just for the TB... So I would have a spare. I put the CPI unit on ebay... 1 day left.. $74 so far. And I even said in it UNTESTED! SOLD AS IS! :)

    Oh yeah... The throttle body sold on Ebay awhile back for $30 shipped. So I already made my money back and then some... 8)

    This guy sent me a PM.. "Wait.. These look used. You said in your auction they were new"... I replied with "NOWHERE did I say they were new, and you can tell they are used by the grease on them. They are boxed up and ready to be shipped. How will you be sending payment?"

    I'll leave him the NASTIEST Negative Feedback EVER if he bones out on me.

    So here is what this guy says to me...
    Now... Here is my auction link... Take a look and tell me if you would have ANY doubt in your mind that these are not used.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...%3ARTQ%3AUS%3A1

    Never looked at the picture my ass... Who doesn't look at the pics!?!?!!

    This guy is paying, or getting an unpaid item tag on his name.

    Nowhere in there does it say "new". It simply says you never installed them.
