EBAY stuff

My thoughts, and they are only that, is that ebay is pretty much a free for all. I don't get mad if someone bids items up more than i will pay (especially if it is a regular mazdarepu.com member) because that is the nature of the game.

The seller put it on ebay for a reason. its an auction. He (or she) wants to get as much money for their parts as possible. That is the whole point of an auction, who wants it the most and will pay the most.

even if we members at mazdarepu.com don't get crazy bidding against each other, there are other bidders who don't come here, and would just snap up the pieces for that much lower of a price.

I think the best way we could control prices, and people getting what they need, is when members have items to sell, sell them directly in the parts section, not on ebay. If the item doesn't sell in the parts section....then list it on ebay.

I appreciate your thoughts,

and tend to agree. Just want to avoid pointlessly cranking up the costs for my REPU brethren... Also, I can imagine that it might be more cost/time effective for certain parts to be sold directly to more-or-less trusted friends, rather than listing them for the 'what if' factor at auction. Guess when it comes down to it, I'm with you on listing it here first, with a reasonably realistic asking price attached... :)
