    Yep, knew that!
    68 quid has to be good even with some extra postage from Germany doesn't it?
    What will your local dealer charge you?
    Probably 68 quid each!

    Re: Cheap new style A3 lights from Germany

    Banks usually charge at least 30 for any small amount of money transfer.Can do through the Post Office for about 10.If the seller has the PayPal logo then this is by far the easiest and safest way.Have sent EURO to Germany before through International Signed For,also done as a letter from the Post Office.There is compensation on this but nothing stops someone running off with your money.Good feedback rating on Ebay is essential for peace of mind,and there is limited compensation for buyers through Ebay.

    Re: Cheap new style A3 lights from Germany

    I want them too, but the idea of payment has always put me off if I can't use Mr Visa although I did set up Paypal [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]. Buying from a foreign country is confusing too as I wont be able to speak/write in that language and know what I'm really getting/paying. BTW why does the translation always say at the end 'much joking in the offering' [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Re: Cheap new style A3 lights from Germany

    It probably says much joy, or something similar, in the offering. The translation programs are pretty horendous most of the time, giving only a general idea of what is said.

    If we get into any trouble,'we might be able to get Drill to give us a helping hand (he's that sort of guy you know), and he can make sure everything is arranged correctly.

    Torsten Hainke is the guy that's selling these rear lights! I'm thinking this aint such a grand idea, not that I've paid yet.....
    He gives a telephone number on the e-mail he sent (030 20214888) if you wanted to give him a call Caractere.

    What with spoilers and rear lights, you dont seem to be having much luck! At least when you finally get the lights, you can sell 'em on to someone else without a problem.

    Caractere.. email him and see what he has to say. I think its was probably a one off bad experience... He speaks (writes anyway) english... so should be able to call him.
