Re: ebay?? does it work?? (Sick Ass Jetta)

i'm gonna have to call bs on that. It may very well be a link but consider this.
I sell retail electronics for a living. The average cost on that screen (even though it's a last years model) is over $3000cdn. Considering depreciation, maybe even refurbished items, liquidation closeouts, it is economically unlikely, however possible that someone could be forced to sell these below cost, even then that would be an all time low of say 50% of cost ($1500) and that's only to attempt to recoup a loss.
So the chances of ANYONE selling a decoder equipped deck like the alpine 900 to ANYONE for $100 are slim to none, leaning VERY heavily on th NONE side.....

exactly
once I emailed some of the dudes in the that left a seller feedback. They all said it was bogus and emailed me the email that the seller sent them.
it pretty much said call up manufacturers and tell them you are a retail store and you want display and sample units.

Re: ebay?? does it work?? (28)

this is houw it works: its called a matrix. people pay the 100 bucks or whatever the cost is. they are put in a line. say that after the first 10 people are in line, the first person gets his head system. Then , in order for the 2nd person to get his, there must be 20 people in line. 4th, 40 people, etc. Pretty much, if u are at the end of the line you are screwed. This system does work to an extent, but by the end, you will get riped off.

Look up Quixstar and Amway, it's about the concept with different products.
