EBAY experiences -- want to talk about it?

Our recently purchased (but not delevered until 9-29)1985 500 SEL came through EBAY. It's a Houston TX car with a clean CARFAX record. I hope this EBAY experience becomes an enjoyable one----we will see.

Has anyone else out there gone the EBAY route?

Good?
Not so good?

Just bought a 2003 g55 black/black 1100 miles that I found on Ebay. I wound up contacting the dealer directly ( a mercedes dealer) and bought it directly.

I bought both on eBay but the sellers were local so I inspected the cars before buying.

RE: EBAY experiences -- want to talk about it?

I just bought a 1995 S600 on eBay . The car isn't perfect and is going to cost me about $2000 to get it on the road, but considering after all is said and done that I'll end up paying less than 1/2 the NADA book value for it; I'm pretty happy.[:)]

I originally bought my SL600 on E-Bay......and I recently sold it on E-Bay.

I've had great luck all around, and from my limited experiences ---- I'm fairly keen on it.

It just seems sketchy to buy a car online....I can see ordering a backpack, or a snowboard or something- but a car you definitely want to see, touch, and drive IMHO.
