    Well, the person selling it has zero feedback, so i'd want to talk to him first....

    description is certainly the same or similar to the one that was on a few months ago...

    Zero feedback, i love these guys.

    I just sold a Sony mobile for £200, to guy in the Netherlands! He had zero feedback, he then cancelled his ebay registration, i am now getting spoof emails from paypal that he wants the mobile sent to Nigeria after receipt of posting, Paypal will dispatch the money.

    Scamming phishing w@nkers!

    I seem to remember he wanted some daft money for it when it was originally up for sale, £18k or something like that.

    surely you would replace the inlet pipe for something bigger if you were running big power?

    Nope... It all looks neat, and there is no need to change the inlet pipe...Not the top of it anyway!

    What is going on with this car?

    It's listed again with another user:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2001-AUDI-S3-QUATT...1QQcmdZViewItem


    Something is not right at all. Who's going to report it to Ebay?

    [/ QUOTE ]


    Ill never sell it if you do that

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Well something is not right. It was being sold by a user with 0 feedback and was bought by a user with 12 feedback. Now a few days latter it is being re-sold by a totally different user with 49 feedback /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Just another point, but how did the second auction begin before the first one had ended?

    The first one ended on the 1st of feb the second one began on the 28th of Jan?? Actually, looking again, it's been auctioned during the current auction?

    The last link still works..

    The plate is visible.. i thought that there was a site mentioned on here that gave owner details from registration plates... or anyone in Crowborough (WTF is that ..?), who has seen it as that is it's stated location...

    Just a thought ....

    If I can find the time over the next couple of days I might just email and ask for a test drive... Then ask why it's listed so many times on eBay.
