MK4 DVD Navigation prices...like gasoline

I've been monitoring MK4 units for a few months now on eBay. They were selling in the $500-$600 range for a while and now all of a sudden, there seems to be a shortage and the price are around $800-$900 before all is said and done. Crazy. I was bidding and was willing to pay $800 max and someone bumped it over allready. It's driving me mad because I need one.

One is almost over @ $810 with non DVD
same seller has another ~$500 with a few days left no DVD
another brand new in wrapping buy it now $999 no DVD
I think the now defunct GB was ~$800 for a new one

Crazy I tell you.

Have you checked the German E-Bay site? Some people on other forums have had luck there.....

FWIW,

Re: MK4 DVD Navigation prices...like gasoline

I did look once but wasn't comfortable at what I saw.
Would I be crazy to buy one now for that premium? I waited once and then none were available.
