    Here's another example of another deluded idiot trying to ride the gravy train and con some unsuspecting sucker into buying a VS Exec radio 6330v for a Calais / Statesman which incidentally won't be able to be connected as it uses a totally different harness connector.

    The above is a classic, being these bolt covers are the same right through to VZ, they are still available. $26.50 for two. The ePrey Muppet is charging $36. Certainly pays to check if something is still available, when parts are interchangeable with something like a VZ.

    Its like most things in life if people willing to spend the money then they will keep the price high, also some people don't want to waste time going from wreaker to wrecker to find the parts cheaper so they just buy the over inflated item.
    Something's we have no choice like gas, fuel, electricity, property rent, doctor bills.

    I was trying to be nice and not offend some of the better folks on here, thus only mentioning the site that drives all this greed.

    Geez I've got a couple (at least) sitting in the shed. I better blow the dust off them and put them on ebay. A bit of competition might bring the price down and give me some beer money

    Don't hold your breath, these twats are just making themselves look like greedy pigs with no morals at all and truthfully ? none of these units actually sell unless it's some special unit out of a Group A or Brock vehicle and then that I can understand as those units are rare to find due to those being made in very small numbers indeed,

    but all the rest......................meh !

    I have seen prices on ebay for 2nd hand stuff seem to be creeping up to catch that unsuspecting buyer, that has no clue on pricing....It's not just with these radios either...It's with car parts for older cars. Either that, or aimed at that buyer that wants the parts yesterday, instead of buying their time...

    I have also struck it in the real world.....Not just the ebay world...Delusional people that think what they have is worth a million dollars, when in fact it's worth scrap prices

    My moto is, I'm not funding these morons retirement fund....My secret is, build up a good contact base and buy your time....Things crop up at the right price and you're not funding some morons retirement fund
