Ebay

Why is it i spend 1/2hr every night browsing ebay for landrover parts
when i know i only have 20 in the bank, and that i can't afford new
socks, let alone car parts?

Am i addicted? and to what? ebay or landrovers? How do i get help?

get a life :)

many turn their addiction into something useful - perhaps setting up an
ebay shop would work for you.

in the meantime, if you find any wheels bearing the mark "ANR 5307" please
let me know (need 1, want 2 - any rubber). Also could do with a a set of
standard wheels (any rubber) and nuts.

It's not only Landy parts.

Best thing yet.

You could always do what I did, come in from the pub, pi$$ed, then go on
Ebay.
I'm still receiving the stuff yet!

I've got a new mobile phone I don't need coming soon. To be fair, I stopped
bidding at my limit (cheap for the item in question) but was beaten in the
auction. The winner then turned out to be an arse, so I got it for what I
bid.

Well done - I was watching a part yesterday. The start bid was acceptable
and the item had no bids till the last day. Was gonna bid when common
sense kicked in - checking around the landy parts suppliers revealed the
bids had overtaken the commonly available price. Not much money involved
but I'm feeling just a little smug about holding back on that one.

That happens all the time, I can't believe how many times I see stuff go
for more than you can buy it new. Makes me want to go out and buy a
load of new stuff to put on eBay for a quick profit!

Matt.

Did that with a CD from the 60s/70s that I thought was out of print. I bid
the guy up to 12 quid, then something made me look at HMV, and there it was
at 6.99, 24hr delivery. I ordered from there, and had the CD in my player
and spinning before the auction ended - final price nearly 20 quid. Taught
me a lesson.

Aye, you do have to be careful.

Phone arrived, BTW. Motorola V600 for the phoneophiles... nice bit of kit,
specially for 26 notes.
