You would be better off buying a £2000 car and taking that part out.

This reminds me of the conversion kit for 2.8 discs - originally on ebay for £40, now £1040....?? :headscratch:

The kit for the discs is only so no one buys them because they are no doubt out of stock and don't want to end the listing

That interior light price is madness though :lol:

That's exactly it, the main reason we see 'daft' prices, it's easier (and cheaper) than removing the listing and re-listing it. Always wondered what the seller would do if someone should actually buy at the inflated price though!

Start by asking them if they really think it will cost £15 to post.
OK, so the decription does state that "any overpayment will be refunded", but considering the price of the listing, you'd think they'd throw in P + P for nothing.
