    Default Why does this irritate me?

    I have no idea why this sort of thing hacks me off, really shouldn't do, I don't need one. On a relatively unrelated search I bumper into this:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Genuin...item43bc156913

    Why does it hack me off? Because new this part cost 40 once you've added VAT, so why does this chap think he can sell one that looks far from new (in fact the reciept has Maranelo Concessionaries on it!) for 110 and thus reinforce the belief that Ferrari parts all cost completely daft prices. It was fairly daft at 34 plus VAT, but 110? Really?!?

    Right, mini rant over. Just hope some unsuspecting newbie (and I mean more of a newbie than me) doesn't buy it.

    Because you need to get out more?

    No one's forcing anyone to buy it. Anyone looking for that specific part will be unlikely not to know what they cost. So it's either worth that amount or it won't sell.

    And if it does sell for that amount, the value of all your 348s has just doubled

    I have got out more, Murph, was just passing through

    The reason why I said "why does this hack me off" is because I acknowledge it really shouldn't do. If I wanted one and couldn't find one elsewhere it might but that's not the case so what do I care? I guess I'm not a great fan of people trying to con others.

    I had a discussion not so long ago with a chap on Fchat who was in the States. He was selling enamel wing shields for $160. The thing is they were clearly the ones you can buy from India for about $30 and he was using the forum to sell them. I had hi res images of 'his' shields and the Indian ones and they were identical right down to every minute mistake in the detail. He said I was talking rubbish right up to when I posted a side by side comparison then he flatly refused to say where they were being made and buggered off. He still sells them through ebay but departed the forum as far as I know.

    Why did I care though, I had a different type anyway? Don't know Murph, just pissed me off. Personality defect I guess.

    p.s. Will take the moral high ground and ignore the comment about 348 prices ......

    The issue with stuff like this, is that if you have had a few drinks you might misplace the decimal point and think you have got a bargain...

    Clearly not talking about a 348, hey Murph?

    Damnit, there goes the moral high ground ......
