Thanks @Iminhell1 for the URLs, I'll check those two out for future glass purchases.

Fitting, as sheís been dead 4+ years. I donít think she was ever smart enough to get one. She was postal, worked nights, and took us boys to beach then passed out on sand. Irish women arenít supposed to look like bacon, right??????

The only thing I've found that it's good for is taking advantage of people that don't know any better.

I recently purchased a used OE CCB, but before I did I made sure to check the price of a new kit. Getbmwparts is my go-to, and they have the kit for $12,295. The very SAME kit can be seen on eBay for $19,999, and get this, the seller doesn't even own the kit. If someone buys it they'll just buy it from Getbmwparts.com and make a bundle.

That's just one example. eBay is almost nothing but scammers or people that are truly clueless. Unfortunately FB Marketplace, and CL are the same.

It's a full time job going through FS ad's to figure out what's what.

Agreed, I hate drop shippers or whatever they are. Just middlemen adding to the price. Sometimes they are the second or third middleman.
