I thought it was only the turbo, but why would they have multiple photos of the whole car? I don't see 1 single picture of just the turbo. Seems like a shitty seller to me.

thats kinda bs if its only the turbo i would flag em on ebay for false advertising. Or something, i wouldnt pay more than 500 bucks for that wreck anyway but i dont have room to pile up any more cars.

They're a wholesaler and probably have multiple auctions for parts off the same car.

Ebay is full of shitty sellers which is why you gotta sort through and find the decent ones (like me).

They use that ONE picture to sell all kinds of miata stuff. It's dumb...

If you scout around, that's the way most of the breakers who sell on eBay do it. I agree this particular seller didn't do a good job with their ad description.

And for stupid pricing, how about the seller who has had a used Speed6 turbo listed for $700 for months now?

I spend countless hours every week taking pictures of the items I sell. I could easily take a picture from the front of the dealership, stock room, showroom floor filled with boxes, etc, and use those as my pictures. Then quickly add "GM# 12498884 Pontiac grille inserts" with no manufacturer description, nor my own description pertaining to the actual item in hand.

You know how much time I would save a week? If I just listed the part numbers with a quick NIB or NOS condition and didnt examine every item individually. Maybe some of us just naturally put more effort into what we do. I personally don't buy from sellers like that. I'd spend the extra couple bucks to buy from a guy that seems like he gave a ****.

I'm gonna check it out I'm always at chuck and eddies, its like one of the best pick and pull junk yards in ct. I'm pretty sure its a typo if its for the whole car, but who knows since they only pay $150 for junk cars!

It is just the turbo boys. All of their posts for parts off that car are pics of the entire car. FYI $1000 for the gearbox :(
