That F430 listing is against ebay rules anyway, they say to add VAT to the final price.  The price must include VAT.

if you need internal parts off that 430 block, £2000 is a bargain. you dont want to know how expencive Ferrari parts are.

i did a gearbox rebuild on a f40, 1 gearwheel was £870.-. and the gearbox needed 5 new ones, bearings are around £120,- ea. parts price together for the rebuild was £5200,-

the owner still has the f40 but never drove it again and is stored now for more than 10 years, hoping the prices goes up for these car.

Yes indeed I have, it went down to the Post Office this evening, how's that for service.  I had loads of stuff on the bay last week and quite a lot of stuff went to people on here, the XROC and XR4 Register.  I guess it isn't surprising as they were mainly Ford parts, but I have never had people I know buy stuff off me before through ebay.  I thought it must be something about me but now I know it's not.
