    As discussed in Paul's Brembo thread, it would be a great idea if we all coordinated on eBay bids, so we don't fight to out-bid each other, thus pushing the price up unnecessarily. This will take a little bit of maturity on the part of members, but from what I've seen on these forums I think people here are willing to work together to help each other out. Besides, any particular 'good deal' is never likely to be a one-off, and if we keep our eyes peeled we should be able to spot some good buys for ourselves and others :)

    There will likely be some crossover with the eBay spotted thread, however I think that is a good place to tell people about items, while this one can be where people let others know they are actually BIDDING on an item.

    So if you see an item on eBay that you think will be a great upgrade for your ride, pop in here and let people know your finger is on the buzzer for that one, so they don't come along and sneakily outbid you ;)

    Finally, my personal suggestion is permanent banning of accounts and IP addresses from these forums for people who abuse this community service to further their own selfish pursuits... But then, I AM an unforgiving bastard :D

    Just to chime in, I'm bidding on the Legnum Accessories brochure (along with a few others) on Ebay too. I've already corresponded with Gav on ClubVR-4 regarding this (or should I say he corresponded with me, as I didn't realise who the other bidder was!!).

    I'd just like to reassure you all that if I should win the Accessories brochure, I shall ensure it's scanned in too and copies provided to both clubs.

    I already have that Legnum Brochure and the Super VR-4 brochure, so I won't be bidding on those - But if Gav doesn't win them, I'll scan my existing copies - that way noone loses out.

    Hey Guys,

    I am going to move back on the ones Kieran is after, and just go for the other one.

    At the end of the day, they will end up on the forum, and I can get a real one next time around. I like collecting some of these also.

    Regards
    Gavin

    Hey Guys,

    These things can work to your advantage at times. I see that Kieran got the brochure he was after.
    I got the Legnum VR-4 brochure, and as I asked the seller about others, got offered the Legnum Accessory brochure as well.

    So, end of the day both Kieran and I have a win, and both forum's will benefit also.

    Regards
    Gavin

    Hey Forum Admins,

    Could I suggest that this thread be split to cater for sub threads.
    Maybe the first post in this could be kept, and we could have sub threads for different ebay or trademe items?

    Regards
    Gavin

    This has worked very well, and we both got what we wanted I think - I like this idea. At the end of the day, anyone can bid and it's up to you to decide how much you want it, but co-operative bidding certainly seems to work well in this case.:)

    I'll keep an eye on this thread next time I spot something.;)

    Nice work guys :)

    Gav's idea isn't a bad one, although it might be best to see how this thread goes for the moment. Eventually if there's enough interest / use for it, having a dedicated Classifieds sub-forum for this kind of thing could work well, especially as the userbase increases. Definitely think this thread should be stickied at least, though ;)

    What do you think Van and Steve?

    I already checked with him - he will ship to Aus and estimates shipping would come to around USD$150.
