Ebay Or Not Ebay That Is The Question.

Post  autohornet on Mon Mar 23, 2009 3:37 pm

Having just rebuilt my hydrolastic suspension radius arms,I have had to find some different parts as wet suspension has different fittings than dry.The handbrake quadrents are different and having helper springs and not shock absorbers I needed to find the correct fixings.I really thought I was going to have problems getting these small but important parts but between Mini Spares and Somerford Mini I sourced them all.A few days later I was scanning Ebay and I found some of the parts I had just got listed as 'new old stock' and bidding was up a lot higher than I paid for all of my parts put together so my advice is any 'rare' parts required check Mini Spares and Somerford you would be amazed at the parts they hold, eg chrome bumper bolts Ebay £4 for 2 +£1pp,Mini spares £1.31 each.

That's why people get rich on ebay. There are people that think it must be cheap because it's an auction, there are those that get carried away in the bidding, but the majority just can't be bothered to check whether they can find the stuff cheaper elsewhere. I've seen it loads of times. There's a lot of mugs out there!

Whilst I agree with all peeps comments. Should'nt the question be "To bid or not to bid?" Laughing
