I'm not for 1 second suggesting that they are worth that, but they are one of those bits that people seem to go F@&%ing silly over.

Never did understand why.

Will it work? - more than likely
Will it have the correct marking and pass anorak scrutiny? - probably not

So depends which camp you fall into - "functional and about right" or "need to get out more, made of money and exactly right" :lol:

Good point, well made!

But if anyone wants them, they offer finance over 12 months.

I agree Mark and some people appear to get crazy prices for items on eBay ... I say appear as I’m not always convinced the sales are genuine :?

If I offer any they’ll start at a much lower price than that that is for sure !!

Only a cynic would suggest that they have that listing just to show their similar listing, under another account, starting at £50 as a bargain!!
