Goddammit! I hate eBay snipers! TSX rims.

I had my bid on some TSX rims for my coupe and that freaken homo bastard sniped me at around 20 seconds left till end of auction!!!! What a punk ass!

I hope it isn't anyone over here



BTW, I was searching through the search feature for TSX rims on coupe pictures, but I found a thread but the pictures no longer work. Does anyone by any chance have pictures of TSX rims on their coupe? Thanks.

yea... Ebay is crazy sometimes... i had my share of misfortunes on EBAY also... i was bidding on some really nice subs (forgot what they were) and he cancelled last minute before i woulda won... in cases like that, nothing happens to the seller, just a really 'small' fee...

I knew I should have bidded $350! Comon dudes. A set of TSX rims, in excellent shape "before it left the dealership" for about $400+ shipped. The ending bid was $305.87 or something like that. Shipping was $100 or about that amount.

I don't know if I should even go with TSX or just Silver Stars. So many choices :/.

i'm the kind of bidder that sets a really high maximum bid (but still getting a great deal out of it).... intimidate other bidders, cuz all they'll get is "you've been outbid by another bidder" and they leave... but i only do that when i know exactly how much an item should be worth....

Lol, you know, I intimidate people when I really want something. Like I will snipe too sometimes hehe :P.

But anyways, I don't know if it was a good thing or a bad thing. But I just won some Silver Stars for $470 shipped.

The minimum bid was $400 and my maximum was only $401 hehe.

If I would have gotten the TSX rims... which "H" center caps would fit the rims?

here is a great tip. never bid if there is still a ood few days left, because the bid wars will make the price sky rocket. instead know when the auction is going to end and bid with like 10 minutes left and STAY to watch the bids. sometimes its unavoidable when snipers get it in 3 secs but thats just tough luck. usually if you watch the entire auction and wait to bid, you GET it( the most important part) and for less then if you hopped into the bid wars earlier. just my 2 cents...

when i got my CL-S rims off ebay...i just contacted the seller and asked if he wanted to negotiate outside of ebay to save himself some money on the fees. got 'em for cheap...didn't have to mess with bidding -- i always contact the seller in case they wanna do it this way...if not...i'll take a shot @ bidding and do what Accord Love said =]

By the 5 minute marker... im reloading every 30 seconds making sure my bid IS the highest and that it hasnt hit my maximum yet. If it gets close and im willing to up my max i will if i feel i need too. Usually now with maximum bids, the snipers make a bid and get shut down by bidding above yours but below your max. The trick is to keep reloading... the F5 key on ur keyboard should be hit every second when it hits 30 sec remaining i mean its a competition to get that part unless they are EVERYWHERE like some are on there... Good Luck Next time!!
