Good buy?

So i put my bb6 on the road last Friday, she's got 190k miles and running on the original timing belt. [previous owner wasn't too diligent] However the car is damn near spotless. I don't usually buy critical items off ebay but this looks like a good deal right?

Re: Good buy?

looks pretty legit. i dont know about the price though, since i havent really priced out all those things ever. it is all OEM, and the seller has good feedback. so youll be quote safe with the purchase im sure. if you have any questions you could just ask the seller too

Re: Good buy?

Where's the auto-tensioner...? That doesn't seem to be everything you're gonna need

Yeah that's a pretty good deal. If you bought all that **** from Majestic it would run you ~$350.

Re: Good buy?

Ehh. Not really worth the effort in my opinion dude. And the valve cover gaskets and other **** you're looking for, try Majestic Honda - The Internet's #1 Honda Automotive Parts Store. Never let me down.

Ive dealt with majestic before (the one in new england) and they were excellent. They were the only guys able to get my brother a shift linkage for his 93 civic tranny swap back in the day

Yeah, they are amazing. The only thing you can't get from them is rare **** like SE wheels and other accessories (fogs, etc).
