Hmm...fear leads to anger...watch the exclamation points bud, nothing wrong with making an offer.

Seriously, these things sell much cheaper everywhere, not trying to rip you off, just letting you know.

Also, you didn't answer my question. I find it laughable that you didn't list the displacement of the motor the pistons came out of.

Again, I seriously hope your parts swapping business goes well. The Miata enthusiast community needs as many guys like you as possible. You still suck at it though. Some of it's odd practice, some of it is just attitude.

Depends on my plans, but wouldn't be interested in 1.6L. Am looking at a 1.8L with some bent *** rods.

$50 is a fair price, sorry to hear your profit margin shrinking.

How many miles were on the motor?

3% is paypal fees, on 100 bucks thats 3 bucks. Box is free from USPS. Shipping is flat rate 10 bucks.

Soooooo.

Anyone who destroys their pistons and rods is going to be using heavy duty stuff the second time around, stock rods and pistons arent worth what you want for em.

Its going to cost you 10 flat to ship em. Paypal fees are 30 cents. Ill pay you 2 bucks for the gas you spend driving to the post office. Thats 12.30. Ill give you another 12 on top of that. Round it off to $25.

Anyone who destroys their pistons and rods is going to be using heavy duty **** in the new one, stock rods and pistons arent squat.
sorry not the way i do business.

Thats also the reason why youre gonna be holding onto the pistons and your oil pan for a LOOOOOOOONG time to come.

Edit: First rule of business is not profit, its turnover. At least when it comes to successful businesses. Profit always comes later.

Yeah, if those were 01+ pistons with a low known mileage, and looked better, you could fetch that price. But those are very common and not exactly in high demand. No specs on them so the buyer doesn't know how much they're worn. And no close up pics to see if their's any visable scoring. I'd say at least post some better pictures and put OBO. Like others said, they don't sell for that price.

You guys made an offer, he refused. Shut the **** up and stop crapping in this guys thread. If his price blows goats, he won't sell the item. If absolutely must comment, send him a PM.

Would it be possible to peddle all this junk in your vendor sub-forum instead of the general classifieds?
