Ebay Rookies

I will be the first to tell you how much Ebay pisses me off, but every now and then there is a good deal on a good item. I am watching this exhaust that is a low price and there is 7 days left on the auction and two rookies are going to war over the price so now any chance of ANYONE getting a good deal is down the drain.

Lately it has gone to shit for sure, I expect it to get better as the riding season goes on due to all the jackassery on the roads. BUt you guys are right buy it now is the way to go most of the time.

I won a set of stock headers and cats off a new 07 Saturday that someone had put a full system on. My max bid was $106.00 and I got it for $78.00. I am happy with that if I actually get them and they look like the photos. First item I have ever won and I was quite suprised.

I mainly wanted them to test fit on my 08. Trying to build my own system.

I have had nothing but good luck with eBay for 5 straight years, but mostly selling and Buy It Nows. This was my first win with bids.

I think they should just change the entire eBay concept to Buy It Nows and Make Offers.

Virtually ever thing I sold was won by a sniper in the last 5 seconds. That defeats the spirit of an auction IMO.

Good chance that those "rookies" are friends of the seller driving the price up....
