People are completely mad for paying what they did for yours off ebay but you certainly didn't get the 150 you were wanting for it on here did you?? There will be another one in a week or two far better condition.

I like to think on this forum we try and help each other out and NOT just try and make as much profit as we can by ripping people off. When I sold my waterfall grille when I upgraded to an eggcrate because I no longer needed it I sold it for 20, that was because it helped another forum member off here out. I bought my eggcrate grille off another member on here and because they didn't need it anymore and they sold it to me for 45 and that one was MINT! They done that because they didn't need it and again just helping out another forum member (me) and NOT ripping them off trying it on at 150!

You on the other hand were helping nobody out but trying to get a big fat profit out of damaged goods, NOT even in MINT condition, what an absolute DISGRACE!

So you are still a chancer!!

Hope you feel better for your rant.

You ought to speak to the board owner and get the section changed from 'Sales' to 'Charity', then your arguement might stand.

Would that be the post office door as I send my grille to my satisfied buyer? Or the door of the bank after I withdraw my 95.96?

If the buyer is reading this thread, then thank you, you have proved my point about it being worth what it's worth and I'm sure you'll be very pleased with the result as I was when I had it. If you have trouble fitting it, ask Lee for some tips he was very helpful and friendly :-)

Matey, you got what got for it (yes I was suprised) but it wasn't the 150 you were trying to get for it from your sale on here? 150 was extrotionate and in my eyes an inappropriate amount to be asking for the item in the first place, even if you did expect to get knocked down slightly.

I wish you all the best with your Golf, we are all entitled to have a difference in opinion but I'm certainly not going to be bitter and twisted about it. Hope your Golf is good to you and the VAG forum is as good as this one.

Take it easy, you will always be welcome to both stay and continue as not everyone on here has got a Volvo or indeed if you come back to Volvo in the future then drop back in again at that point in time - whatever suits your needs.

Take care and happy motoring!

It occurred to me that the large number of watchers and bids was probably in part due to the profile raised by your posts so I should thank you for helping raise interest in my auction :-)

I hope you & everyone else has less woes with their V50s than I did, was a lovely car but unreliable and expensive to maintain, I'm afraid to say it has put me off Volvo's for life.

I traded it in as I wasn't happy selling it privately, I hope it gets fixed up by a dealer and goes to a good home. I might hang around here just to see if it pops up on the site!

Just back from 10 days in the sun and catching up on the forums. Surprised to see what this grill went for in the end. Well done Cranford! Just goes to prove the old adage that something is worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

With regards comments along the lines of 'people not knowing what they're talking about' thought I'd attach a screenshot of my Ebay account showing what I got my A1 condition OEM S40 grill for (43.99 including P+P). In my eyes this is more what these grills are worth (although I am Scottish and an Invernesian living in Fife at that!!!!).

Cranford - enjoy the GTI. One of my mates has an Edition 30 and loves it. Great cars.

Them cupholders (centre console) are only 15 - 18 from a dealer. Give Rufe a call at FRF Motors, I bought a set for mine when I very first got my car as I had the really old style with 4 stupid stick out tabs as opposed to the 5 or 6 rubber flaps per holder (newer style).

HTH,

I bought my mint grille for 50 off a member, thats the going rate on here. Just shows Ebay is good for some things after all. (Either that or his mates bid it up to look like theyve proven you guys wrong?)
