$55 with free shipping is not outrageous. Nor is $75. Most companies will charge that in just shipping.

Re: what the heck is wrong with these sellers?

I have been told that when they go out of stock on an item they will jack the price up like this so they don't get any orders instead of removing the add and then having to pay to put the ad back up when they get more in stock.

Re: what the heck is wrong with these sellers?

if you click on how many he sold the price is really $98.99. He sold 51 of them so as long as people keep buying them why would he lower his price .

If you click on how many he sold it goes to the history and they really sold for $94.99 not th $1149.00 that is listed.
You think they would fix the price so there wouldn't be any confusion. For the listed price it they better paint it and come install it personally.

Re: what the heck is wrong with these sellers?

What would they charge for a whole kit? And what could you sell a full true oem kit for?

Re: what the heck is wrong with these sellers?

I priced out a full OEM kit, with shipping, for about 1K. But now that brand new pieces are getting harder to come by, you could probably get a little more. Just an opinion though

Re: what the heck is wrong with these sellers?

sometimes people post the price super high like that because there stock is low or about to be refilled so they dont want people to buy when they dont have it and if they do well i bet you would ship one out for $1500 too
