    There is also a numpty that wants $299.90 for a set of 20 wheel nut covers for a VE.

    Where's Darryl when you need him.

    This looks like the current Gumtree mentality where you list high and let the lowballers come in and think they are getting a bargain at their stupidly low price offered.

    There's plenty of sellers who have the same stuff up for years with no actual intention of every selling it. This is done just to make it look like they've got heaps of stuff you might want and have you buy something out of their many "store" listings.

    BTW Losh I've seen plenty of VR books at UPI in my travels. Probably a few less than VS ones but nonetheless still no shortage of them. There's a few sellers offering them at $10 on the bay and those aren't shifting either, so listing at $199 is just giving ones self a really bad name as a seller and certainly doesn't make me want to look at any of their other high priced listings.

    I need one and am hoping this wreck I'm picking up today might have one. Unfortunately a VS one is pretty much useless in a VR, as i found when i couldn't figure out why the belt diagram was wrong. The book in the GB was VS not VR. I threw it in the recycle bin.

    If it was local I'd grab it. The post will be $10, if indeed he was even happy to mail it, considering he is only asking 5 bucks.

    Postage would be $8.55 for a 500gm satchel, but would be passed as large letter rate if it was packaged between very thin cardboard and fits through the guide slot and thus would go from Victoria to Tassie for around $4.00 to $5.00

    Trouble is would a bloke off Slumtree be willing to go to the PO over a $5 owners manual, he might?
