Hey guys:

I am looking at '04/'05 Gallardos from dealers and private sellers on eBay. What should I be concerned about before bidding?

Many thanks,
Chad

I discovered my Gallardo on ebay. You should definitely fly out to the location to see the car before you even think about bidding. There are too many risks involved in just bidding blindly on most ebay items, especially an exotic car costing upwards of $100,000.

Chad: Never buy a car directly on Ebay! Never! Fly out to drive the car, check it out thoroughly anad have a PPI done! Then you will not suffer dissapointment. There are a lot of phoneys out there on Ebay trying to unload cars and Ebay does not go after them when they are discovered. In that respect Ebay "sucks bigtime". Ebay will leave you hanging. They just want the fees.

I could not agree more; "BE VERY CAUTIOUS"...... if it looks, sounds, and walks like a......... then fricken run.....

On the otherside there are dealers that use this as a means to bring you closer to their inventory........

Just be careful

Thanks Shadowman. What do you think of Auto Link in Dallas? They have a black '04 G egear with 5k miles right now -- one of the eBay items I'm considering.

Best,
Chad

I have done it, just make sure you do all the regular checks, there are some scammers about but when you are talking that kinda money get it right the first time :)
