    Nice wheels

    Has anyone seen this on Ebay?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...974541434&rd=1

    Nice wheels - would they fit onto my S70 T5 does anyone know?

    The only thing I'm slightly worried about is what happened to the C70 they were attached to!!!

    they will fit, but

    1 = they aren't genuine Volvo wheels like he's trying to make out

    2 = you can get a new set of 18's cheaper than his starting price

    If they were 1100 new it dont matter they only done 500 miles, there still used and the starting price is to high,

    They look lovely and a wouldnt say no but as Pedro said, a wouldnt wanna pay more than his starting price

    Nice wheels

    Thanks Pedro - like I said I'm kinda worried where the C70's gone!

    What's the recommendation for wheels and sites to get a decent buy on?

    Nice wheels

    Like Fraz13's wheels for example - I just think my little 'ol 16"s just done cut the mustard and as theres so relatively little to do on the styling front without ending up on the cover of ChavCar, wheels feel like a good investment.

    I bought the eggbox grille from Volvo which makes a huge difference.

    Their nice wheels with good tyres, but as mentioned starting price is a bit much, also he shouldnt be charging 3.5% for using pay pal, against e-bay rules!

    Either the cars been wrecked, hes sold it, someones tried to borrow the wheels off it or when he fitted 18's to a cab he realised the ride quality and shake got worse than it is standard so decided to sell them.

    Steve i have contacted them too, But they stated to me that they could only pull the advert when it was still running and not when i contacted them after it had finished.
    I had a Yank pull that stunt on me and he tried to pass over 60s worth of fees.

    E-bay just dont have the staff I dont think to answer or sort out all the queries.

    If someone says that after you buy something then E-bay will get involved but normally always ends up with neg feedback being left!

    you don't think its a bit of a rip though? by the time you've finished ebay have creamed off 10% of the sales value.......

    I can see the point in asking for it IF you have given the option of paying another way that avoids being ripped off by paypal/ebay such as a cheque or postal order.
