Another Ebay gem

For anyone that is on the mainland or that can convince the seller to ship as he will not ship to Australia, and I really want those rims.

DHL Postpaket will accept the wheels if packed in separate boxes at a cost of 82 Euro each for postage to Australia.

I have had 2 sets of wheels sent to me by German vendors in this manner. The first a set of staggered throwing stars and the second, a set of M-Parallels (like the one's you are looking at - mine arrived last week!!).

If you can refer the seller to the following website, and request he sends you the rims only (sans tyres), he may change his mind. Also, let him know you will offer him a high final bid - may budge him a bit as well.

I have also been required to pay by direct deposit - very easy into Germany - and eases the vendor's concerns that you might be an EBay shark of some sort. And with EBay you will have some protection if he doesn't send the wheels.

Also, if you can spoon feed him with wheels weights etc (about 12kg from memory) to make it all easy, may improve your chances.

DHL site to look at is:

Good luck with it all and see you on Thursday.

sexy wear

Bob

I see the M Parallels sold to 'Sexy Wear' who appears to be Australian. Is that your EBay handle, or did you miss out on the wheels?

Nice meeting you last Thursday by the way.

Cheers
