Been after a few bits for a new build here's the thread,
viewtopic.php?f=40098&t=12903099
I have been watching good old evilbay :evil: :evil: :evil: and cannot belive what bits are going for.Are people just lazy or mad as they can buy the bits new for the same price or very close too for what they are paying. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Wondered about this myself. It's up to the bidder though. More power to the seller if people are daft enough to bid like there's no tomorrow.

The main thing that annoys the hell out of me is when sellers put average items on at near cost price then bang a shedload on in postage.
I bought an item from a respectable trader on Ebay for a very good price. (just under average) Why did I go for this seller? Simple ................ FREE delivery. Item arrived quickly and securely packaged and in A1 condition. Resulting from this transaction I will definitely use this seller again.

I was watching a used Torm jersey on there. Retails for £50 direct from Torm. It went for £52 despite the description saying it was slightly faded. Madness.
