Best Ebay/Craigslist Score?

I was able to pick up the one right-side wind deflector screen for $50 on craigslist today. Too much for plastic but far less than factory.

What was your best score from Ebay or Craigslist?

In general or Box related?

I got a 914 once lol

For the box, probably my Box muffler for $243ish shipped (close to that) and a '98 Les Paul Studio for $500 shipped!

Well not my best score, but I did pick up my '03 base for $12,507 on Ebay last July. Very good condition inside and out, service records, and so far, knock on wood, no problems other than a broken motor mount.

I was thinking more Porsche related. Obviously not very clear. Otherwise we'll end up with mail-order-brides and the like.

$615 for my hard top on eBay. The auction ended July 4th (not exactly prime hard top season), the seller wouldn't ship and the top needed to be picked up near Charlotte NC within 7 days of the end of the auction because the seller was moving.

I think I was the only person in the world who (1) wanted an arctic silver hard top, (2) was looking for it in the South during the middle of the summer, and (3) would be willing to drive to the Charlotte area on short notice. Fortunately, I had already ordered my spin locks.

I had a heck of a time putting the thing on my car. It wouldn't fit on the first few tries and I had never put a Boxster hard top on prior to that. It was also about 10:00 pm and I had been driving for six hours.

Scored a brand new, unprogrammed instrument cluster for $150. Then got silver tech art gauge faces for $19. My best eBay purchase was my 3 spoke wheel for $69... which isn't much to brag about until I contacted the owner and bought the airbag for an extra $125, incl. shipping! Cha ching!

Now from this forum I've had great deals offered to me too. I got two leather door cards for my 97 (rare ones without airbags) in flawless condition for just $149 shipped... from a very generous forum member.

If only I could find a black leather dashboard with the airbag cover and cluster brow for a couple of hundred bucks... that's all I lack now on the interior renovation work I've been doing over the years.

Its funny that you mention powdercoated 17's for $400, I happen to know where some are now...

17" Boxster S wheels powdercoated black

Seriously though, I scored 18" 993 Turbo Twist hollow spokes (F 7.5"/R 10") for $350 off CL with OEM center caps. Only catch was someone had curbed the rears and they needed to be re-finished. I didnt mind as I planned to have them painted black anyway, so it was a total score. You can't even find one hollow spoke on ebay for that price.
