    Similar to the Craigslist car thread, I thought it might be useful to list interesting parts FS on Craigslist, so post away!

    I noticed that header the other day. Appears that the uppipe is part of that thing, so does that mean the only gaskets used are at the heads and turbo? If so, seems like it'd be easier to seal up (currently trouble shooting an exhaust leak...).

    However, since it's an ELH does that mean you'd lose the blub blub sound? Cuz I ain't paying to lose that.

    4 185/70R14 Snow Tires (only used one winter) - $80 (W Metro)
    http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/csw/pts/4794236985.html

    Called on these as I was pretty pumped on the price to put them on the Legacy. Guy said he wouldn't sell them to me unless I paid him an additional $60 to mount and balance them ($15 per tire). I said I have access to a tire machine and will do them myself. He proceeded to tell me he paid $70 for the tires and can't make only $10 off them. I proceeded to tell him to have a nice day...

    So he payed 70$ used them for a winter and after a year he wants to make money off them... Much less he wants to double his money? This is a new concept...

    He told me that him offering to mount and balance for me for $15 was a great deal and that most people appreciate that service he offers. He also said that "most shops" charge $20-25 per tire to mount and balance. Pretty sure last time I paid to get tires mounted in town here it was $7/per at Fleet Farm.

    Not sure how I missed that, but I'm gonna pretend I didn't see it after ordering a brand new ceramic coated one this morning.

    F**k.

    True. I've been telling myself it's still a good deal. Got it for $210 shipped. Ceramic coated, comes with gaskets, and is new.

    Thoughts - make your own thread?

    Why not just post in a thread about car parts asking about car parts? Instead of making a whole new thread that no one will open and no one will respond to?
    Maybe we should all start telling people who post auto trader links in the craigslist thread that they need to make there own thread?

    Well, this is a thread for parts that people find for sale, not an opinion poll on some Amazon vendor's wares. I don't find your comparison close.

    Sent an E-mail offering 300 bucks for everything. I figure the worst that can happen is I get a couple spare parts I need and can scrap the rest, best case I can make money if it's legit. We shall see how gracious this 'Car God' is... lel

    This isn't a for sale thread. Members find CL postings and post them here.

    Also, the CL listing has been deleted by the poster, so the exhaust probably sold. Womp-womp.

    What do folks think of these? I think he's priced them a little high, but I tripped all over myself this morning to go get them, after not finding any wheels I wanted on CL for the last month. I paid him $200 to take two into my possession already (stupid ATM limit). The tires are pretty worn on one corner of each. They may last me a couple of months.

    $350?
