There is piss taking and then there is this.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-75-Rare ... 231cc95c16

Not mentioning the £15.00 postage charge.

I really can't imagine anybody in their right mind (or out of it) buying this item.
Good luck to the vendor if he gets his price. ;)

Seller is a member on t'other side... he knows his audience / market and has made a judgement as to whether he might sell.... and who am I to argue with that? :D

I'd suggest they might be trying to circumvent the bay, as they have given collection details with a wink!

But the gentlemans agreement was that they would not be resold for a profit

That was my understanding of the gentleman's agreement as well Martin.

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

it is things like this that make me mad! i have only ever sold on bits I have bought for the same price or if I have broken stuff down and sold bits individually I have sold only to cover the costs. I believe in karma or should that be carma ;) and esepcially on here as I know there is a lot I can't do and if it wasn't for the good people I have become friends with I would have to pay a fortune to have bits done. I will always try to help when I can and sometimes I actually know things! but this is a community and any agreements should always be honoured.

Oh and if anyone buy these just be careful as mine even after being scored and stuck on with lots of silicon keep falling off! I bought 2 sets but had to use my second set to replace the missing ones...

Though so far I think mine os the only car this keeps happening to that I know of.

The thing that worries me is that for every person willing to pay £200 for them there are probably many more who would think nothing of prising them off your car for free if no-one was looking . . .

Shameful, the brass plated finishers were reproduced in part due to the rarity of the original MGR finishers which were plastic. IIRC there was a an original MGR set on ebay a couple of years ago that went for silly money £150+.

I object most strongly to being thought a gentleman. Nobody knows me well enough (well, one or two might maybe), and to lower the bar of expectations to such a level presents hurdles to my normal stumble through the wilderness. For instance, every MP rejoices in the self-congratulatory soubriquet 'honourable gentleman'. (Even 'right hon. gent'). Wouldn't want to be bunged in with that load of chancers.

Postage has been reduced to £4.00, so that's double what the finishers are worth. IMNSHO ;)

The seller has been lambasted on t'other side, and there are many comments about gentlemans agreements, apparently the seller has sold his car and is now no longer a club member having requested his membership be cancelled

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt
