Seats

Forgone conclusion at the price unfortunately. He was too tight to pay the extra £1.50 or so to stick a reserve on them. What he means is he tried to pull the auction at the 11th hour when he realised he wasn't going to get £150 for them, but ebay won't let you pull an auction with less than 12hrs to run

End of the day you can't seriously expect the guy, whatever his motives to let you have a set of Monacco half leathers for £25.00.

And why not, you use ebay and abide by the rules and conditions ebay stipulate, if you cant then don't use the site, simple as that really. My brother who's also a member on here listed a 52mm throttle body, it sold for £42 he didn't want to sell it but he did because that's how ebay works, so what makes that guy better than my brother?

+1 won a ZR tailgate in yellow today for £50. I phoned him in the week for a buy it now price and he wanted £150 which is well OTT so I bid on it instead. I'm expecting to pick up either a shagged tailgate or one without the spoiler despite this got advertised as well. We'll see when I pick it up!!!

That's Bertie Ollocks tbh, you can end an auction AT ANY TIME, I've done it myself.

Report the [email protected] Done this with people who farted me about and a fair proportion od those are now banned. So, even though it's no biggie to set everything up again, people mess with me I mess with them, it's a two-way street and hassle they can do without.

how do you report someone?
Off the Help menu on the ebay homepage you'll get a drop-down to "Report a Problem"...there are several options so do as man y as you think apply. Go to town on this muppet.
